LAGUNA BEACH

Laguna Beach, California

Some of you may recognize these two happy faces.  Nick and Tiffany were last year’s Free Wedding Photography winners.  Even before meeting them in person, we were able to perceive that Nick & Tiffany are two very wonderful (not to mention, determined) individuals.  They are loved by many friends and family.  By the end of last year’s contest, they were able to get over 900 LIKES on Facebook in less than a week!  Within the first five minutes of meeting them at their engagement session, we felt as if we had known them for years.  They’re both very happy, caring, giving, and loving people.  Nick IMMEDIATELY showed us his goofy side as you can see through the majority of the pictures. lol  We had a  huge advantage that we don’t get often…AMAZING SKIES!!  The sunset was PERFECT!  It looked as if the sky was on fire…beautiful orange and red clouds filled the sky at sunset.  Nick & Tiffany, we felt very comfortable working with you two and we are more than excited to shoot your wedding in December!  :)

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Adrian & Elizabeth are those kind of couples that are just meant for each other.  They chose to get ready at the gorgeous JW Marriott at LA Live in beautiful Los Angeles California. We had the idea of shooting some of the formals in downtown Los Angeles. We were so happy we did as it gave the formals a very unique and creative look. The final destination was the reception at Bagramian Hall in which we have shot at several times. From their Engagement Session in Santa Barbara to the Wedding day, these two have been such a pleasure to work with. We wish you all the love and happiness on your new journey together.  Love you guys!

BAGRAMIAN HALL

Montebello, California

Marco & Lupe’s wedding took place in the city of Montebello, California at the beautiful Bagramian Hall.  They had a huge surprise for all of their guests at the reception.  It was as much of a surprise for us as it was for their guests and families.  The well known Colombian musical group SONORA DINAMITA performed at their wedding.  For any of you that might not remember who they are, some of their well known songs are, “Escandalo”, “Mi Cucu”, “Mil Horas”, just to mention a few.  We enjoyed shooting your engagement photos and your wedding very much.  It was a pleasure working with the both of you.  Best wishes on a new beginning together!  :)

DOWNTOWN RIVERSIDE

Riverside, California

Downtown Riverside is a very popular spot for engagement photography.  There are just too many  interesting looking buildings.  For Raudel and Marlene’s engagement photos we started out shooting around the historic Mission Inn Hotel.  And at the very end of the session, we got to shoot them alongside  a gorgeous classic car!!  We had a great time shooting your engagement sessions and can’t wait for your wedding day!  :)

Special thanks to Derrick Yazzie for assisting as a second photographer for this engagement session.  :)

DOWNTOWN RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA

Downtown Riverside always provides a variety of beautiful areas for engagement sessions or wedding photography.  For Andy & Noemi’s session, we started shooting at an abandoned warehouse next to the Riverside Amtrak Station and moved ourselves into Downtown Riverside.  We hope you both enjoyed your engagement session the way that we did.  :)

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ARTS (LACMA)

Los Angeles, California

We were very excited to shoot Joel & Jannessie’s anniversary photos.  What made it so flattering was that they had been searching for a photographer that met their standards and that would stand out from the rest.  When they were referred to us by one of their friends and saw our work, they immediately knew we were the photographers they were searching for.  They drove almost three hours from Bakersfield to Los Angeles just to have their photographs taken by us.  Matt and I really appreciate you putting all of your trust in us to capture the love and beautiful relationship that exists between the both of you.  We wish you many beautiful and happy anniversaries. :)

EAGLE CASTLE WINERY

Paso Robles, California

It was such a pleasure shooting Anthony & Aimee’s wedding in Paso Robles, California. They chose Eagle Castle Winery as their wedding venue, which was such a pleasurable place to shoot. This Castle overlooked the beautiful Paso Robles area. This wedding was full of love, happiness, and tender moments. We quickly became attached to the persons present at this intimate winery wedding. The guys were so much fun, and absolutely awesome!  We wish you such a happy life in your new home in the United Kingdom. Thank you both for allowing us to shoot your wedding in beautiful Paso Robles, California. Listening to the speeches, and the obvious concern for family and friends to let Aimee go to the UK, it was truly such a heartwarming experience. Such beautiful personalities are hard to come by these days. Anthony and Aimee, we hope you love the teaser, and please just give us an excuse to get out to London to see you guys once again. Matt and I wish you infinite years of happiness!

THOUSAND STEPS BEACH, LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA

When Rene & Jocie told us they wanted to take their photos in Thousand Steps Beach, we knew exactly what we were in for.  It’s a GORGEOUS secluded beach in Laguna Beach.  It’s like a hidden gem.  However, there’s a catch to it.  The only way to get there is by going down some 227 steps.  Doesn’t sound like much right?  Try telling yourself that once you’ve climbed back up to the top.  That’s when you’ll know WHY they call it “Thousand Steps Beach”!  Though the day was cloudy and a little cold, Rene & Jocie were such wonderful sports.  As if it weren’t cold enough, and as it usually happens when we shoot at the beach, our lovely couple ended up wet and full of sand by the end of the session.  Thank you so much you two for being so cool and cooperative.  We had a very nice time shooting your engagement photos.  :)

CALIFORNIA PLAZA, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

When Lupe told me her and Marco wanted their engagement photos taken at the California Plaza Water Court, we were SOOOO excited!!  It took us forever to figure out where this waterfall was.  We knew it was in Downtown Los Angeles, but didn’t know exactly where it was.  We were confident that we could come up with some very unique and different images than the ones we’ve seen taken at this location.  It’s always so much fun shooting in Downtown LA.  Usually we shoot for 2 to 3 hours, but we lost track of time and ended up shooting well over 4 hours!  We either lost track of time or got a little camera happy.  Probably a little bit of both lol  Thank you Marco and Lupe for being such good sports and pulling through the entire session.  We’re very excited to shoot your upcoming wedding!!  :)

CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA

Working with Alvin & Yari has been a wonderful experience.  When you talk about “best friends” marrying each other, there’s no better example than Alvin & Yari.  They couldn’t be more perfect for one another.  It was a pleasure working with you two, from your engagement pictures to your wedding day.  We hope you’re able to relive your wedding day through our images.  Thanks again for choosing us as your photographers for such an important event in your lives.  :)

GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA

Whenever we meet a couple, there’s always one word we can use to describe their relationship.  In Byron & Bri’s case, there’s one description that fits them perfectly…ADORABLE!!  Their personality and the way they are around each other is just adorable.  :)  We felt very comfortable around them.  It was as if we were hanging out with old time friends.  For their engagement session, they took us to Brand Park Japanese Garden.  When we drove into the facilities, the first thing that crossed our minds was, ‘how did we not know this place existed??’.  It’s one of those small hidden treasures in Southern California that goes unnoticed.  We want to thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers.  We’re very excited to drive up to Santa Barbara for your big day!  :)
