Wedding Photography Casa Romantica San Clemente

What perfect timing, to have the weather clear up in between two days of rain (rained on Friday and Sunday!). This Saturday couldn't have been any more beatiful for Melissa and Roger, blessed with deep blue skies, clean air, and a mild ocean breeze. Melissa and Roger held their wedding at Casa Romantica in San Clemente which sits on a cliff overlooking the pier, so you can see the beach and ocean just below you during the creremony. Here's a preview of their wedding pictures:

And you can always click on any image to see it larger.

Afterwards we headed down to the pier to catch the sunset.

St. Regis Resort Monarch Beach Wedding Pictures

Elizabeth and Todd are one of the most romantic, fun, and sexy couples that I've photographed. You can see for yourself by checking out their e-session last month. They were such a pleasure to shoot because they trusted my artistic eye and and were always willing to be affectionate in front of the camera. On their wedding day we started their photo session at the spectacular St. Regis Resort in Monarch Bay. I was also fortunate to have my friend Timco come all the way from Florida to shoot with me today!

Feel free to click on any image to view it larger.

After the reception we convinced Todd and Elizabeth to have some fun in the St. Regis fountain. These HOT images were taken out in front of the main entrance to the resort!

Engagement Pictures Angels Stadium Anaheim

Jamie and Victor are big time fans of The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. So for their engagement pictures, they brought with them two sets of baseball jerseys, two sets of hats, a baseball bat, gloves, you name it. We were in for a cool e-session at the Angels Stadium!

Wedding Photography Los Coyotes Country Club Buena Park

It was a perfect day at Los Coyotes Country Club as Chelle and Dereck prepared for their wedding. We did a photo session during their private rendezvous on the scenic grounds. It's also called "The First Meeting", where the bride and groom actually see each other before the day's events begin. I enjoy doing the "first meeting" because of the many advantages: it's intimate, their emotions are at its peak, they can enjoy a real moment alone (before all the hectic and structured events begin), it takes pressure and stress away, the romantic photo session is not compromised, and it's unforgettable.

Engagement Pictures Oldtown Pomona

Yes yes I know, another engagement portrait session in Oldtown Pomona. But this place is so cool that I can do a whole photo shoot with a good variety of locations without duplicating anything I've done before! I was actually already booked for Thao and Jorge's wedding, but they wanted to have me photograph them anyway. I get really flattered when clients really appreciate my work! An e-session was the solution, and they wanted to do something with an urban theme so the old stone and brick buildings were perfect.

While walking around to different spots, I had a chance to talk to them. It's funny how much we all had in common. Jorge and I are both artists, and I find out that he even went to the same school as I did. Same school (CSULB), same teachers, and same major (BFA - Illustration). He even loves photography!

And it gets better. Thao works in IT, and she used to work for a mortgage company. I did exactly that for about 5 years before starting my business. And was funny also finding out Jorge's birthday is only a few days before mine. HA

Pasadena Engagement Pictures

Rosalie and Gregory's wedding in May will be at St. Andrew in Pasadena. So we decided to do their engagement pictures in Pasadena and then at Cal Tech. Here's a picture of them with a glimpse of the cathedral in the background:

We ended up walking around the campus at Cal Tech and found some great spots to shoot:
