Pamela & Nathan's Wedding in Dana Point, CA

Congratulations to Pamela and Nathan!

I've been looking forward to their wedding ever since we did their engagement pictures on the mountains up in Chino Hills. They looked so good in pictures because they have a way of tuning out the world and getting lost into each others eyes.  That means I get to easily capture truly romantic and natural images of them together.

Right after the ceremony we went down to the Dana Point Harbor with their bridal party to take some pictures against the Pacific Ocean background. They must have had some party in the limo because by the time we got there (short drive) everyone was ready to rock and roll! The photo shoot was hilarious - imagine a large group of young people all dressed up, yelling, cheering, dancing, and climbing up on the jetty rocks! The pictures came out amazing.

We also had the great opportunity to do more pictures in nearby San Juan Capistrano. The Mission San Juan Capistrano is perfect for the romantic part of wedding photography.

The two of them first met while traveling in Chile, so naturally on their first dance Nate and Pam performed a traditional Chilean folk dance. They did fantastic!

Debbie & Martin's Wedding at Stone Manor in Malibu

Congratulations to Debbie and Martin on their beautiful wedding! The setting was at the scenic Stone Manor atop the hills of Malibu. This place was completely set up for everything - Debbie got ready upstairs, the reception site was on a lawn overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and the reception set up was on one of the terraces around the mansion.

Martin chillin' with the boys on the putting range.

Debbie looked stunning in her wedding gown and she was ready to go!

The moment of anticipation, they had just opened the door, and Debbie got a glimpse of everyone awaiting her entrance...

Spectacular views all around.

Carissa's Life Portraits

Another portrait session done with a rockstar model Carissa! We totally had fun in studio and walking around oldtown Fullerton. Her life portraits turned out great and really showed her outgoing personality. She can ham it up or get a little sexy, but it's mostly about her positive energy during the photo shoot. Here are just a few of my favorites from the day:
