Models: Marisa and David

I had a great opportunity to shoot two wonderful kids: Marisa and David. We had a hoot!

If you put them next to each other they just start giggling and they can't stop!

I was just amazed at how they can ham it up so well for the camera.

Kristina and Rafael's wedding at St Denis in Diamond Bar

Kristina and Rafael's wedding at St Denis in Diamond Bar

Sometimes I manage to find "gem" images such as this peephole on the balcony. I love how this shot is so beautifully framed by the symmetric window between the two pillars.

I'm sure there's a great story to how or why this shoe was left here...

I took Kristina and Rafael to Craig Park in Brea to do some intimate portraits, and to give them some time alone as bride and groom. Moments like this are precious and memorable since it's the only part of the day when they get to spend quiet moments together.

I love a bridal party that exudes ENGERGY!

Diana & Gabriel's Wedding @ Pasadena City Hall

Some favorites from Diana and Gabriel's wedding in Pasadena:

While Diana was getting ready for her big day, I showed her the book of her engagement photo session we did at Laguna Beach and Mission San Juan Capistrano. It turned out amazing, but the best part of it was seeing Diana's face light up when she first saw the pictures.

The first meeting was a complete surprise for Diana! Gabe managed to sneak up behind her. I love these spontaneous moments because they're natural and memorable for both of them.
That first moment when they see each other is intimate, intense, passionate, unrushed, unrehearsed, and nobody is there to interrupt. It's about them and their wedding day, and the first moment together belongs to them alone.

My favorite captured image:
