Royal Vista Golf Club Wedding ~ Jason & Marie

I always adore photographing weddings, especially when the Bride & Groom opt for a first look!  Renowned photographer, Melissa Jill, discusses "To First Look or Not to First Look."  After reading this article, Jason & Marie decided to go for it!  And, they were happy they did, as you can see from the really great candid moments!

I also love when the bride and groom spend time carefully planning all the details. Marie painted/illustrated their own wedding invitations!  They even had a little cake topper that included their beloved dog, Piper!

The wedding and reception took place at the Royal Vista Golf Club in Rowland Heights, which was also catered by the venue.  They had a very special treat when Marie's sister and a close family friend sang Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.

It was a beautiful wedding, and special thanks goes to a few people that helped their wedding day go so smoothly.

Orange County Maternity & Newborn

I have known Christopher since he was 4 years old.  When he asked me to photograph his wedding in Sweden, I couldn't be more proud or honored to not only be there to witness his marriage to the beautiful Alexsandra, but to capture these very special memories I will never forget.

5 years later, they welcomed their first born, Theodore Lucas, into the world.  It's such an amazing and wonderful opportunity to photograph their little family -- words just can't express my happiness for them.  LOVE THEM.

Irvine Park Toddler Session

It's so amazing, and a privilege, to see the lives of my clients change throughout the years. Martin & Allie were married on April 28, 2012.  A couple of years later, they welcomed their precious Olivia into the world, and a newborn session was in order.  Since then, I have been documenting Olivia's life every six months.  Below are images from Olivia's 2 year old toddler session at Irvine Park. She is so stinkin' adorable!

Shoreline Village Long Beach Engagement

Her name is Nesheena.  His is Tim.  What can I say, other than they are one of the most PERFECT couples I have ever known!  Well, besides my husband and I, of course, (*wink*). But seriously.  Their love is completely undeniable, as is their deep admiration, connection, friendship and respect for one another.  It makes my heart happy to see them so in love -- and deserving of each other.  We had an awesome time hanging out with them at Shoreline Village, documenting their cuteness overload.  They loved their session so much, they took us to dinner afterward at the fabulous Alegria Cocina on Pine Ave.  Looking forward to hanging out with them again, soon!  xoxo
