The Hills Hotel, Laguna Hills

Thursday, Mar. 14th 2013

I had a lot of fun shooting Christine & Matthews Winter Wedding at the Hills Hotel in Laguna Beach, Ca. They are such a cool, fun couple! They are super relaxed, personable, treated my like a friend instead of hired help, and so fun to shoot! They always seem excited, especially about pictures which makes my job that much more fun! They had such a great wedding, starting with a Catholic Ceremony at a beautiful church, St. Edward the Confessor Parish. They were incredibly savvy with who they chose to coordinate their wedding and they really got AMAZING vendors listed below! Every vendor on this list was a joy to work with and come highly recommended by me if you are having a wedding in Southern California! This wedding is very mixed in style and colors! They got a mix of pretty color, edgy, and I loved a lot in Black and White! Thanks to my bride and groom, you guys rock! Can’t wait to photograph your babies soon! 🙂

They played the newlywed game, courtesy of their DJ Rob, and during dinner they played musical chairs with the guests, where they had to run into the crowd and collect items from other guests in order to sit down, which was hilarious and great for pics! Party (401)

Robert has a unique approach to his DJ Service. He has a GREAT voice, and does some really fun ice breakers during the reception. His team is AWESOME!

Casa Romantica, San Clemente

Tuesday, Jan. 15th 2013

What can I say about this sweet and lovely couple Kelly and Ryan Whelan!? Natalie Good, with A Good Affair Wedding and Event Production, introduced me to this nice couple and knew we would be a great match! After an engagement shoot and boudoir session, I knew this couple well by the wedding date which is always a plus for everyone. This bride, Kelly, was the anti-thesis of Bridezilla, always smiling and trusting of her vendors. They actually thanked all of their vendors during their own toasts, which is very unusual! This wedding was fun to be a part of. The families where so close and it made everything that much more meaningful. I actually got teary eyed during the toasts, as there is so much love and admiration for each other.  I especially loved how much their family was a part and incorporated in everything as well. From the hanging wedding dresses of the Mothers and Grandmothers, to the wedding pictures of each displayed at reception, they had so many unique details that made their wedding more personalized personalized. If you are looking for a wedding venue in Southern California, especially one that overlooks the ocean, put Casa Romantica on your list as a must see, and then call Natalie Good for your design and planning. (Vendor List at bottom of blog)  You cannot go wrong with this venue, and coupled with Natalie, it is sure to be a wedding of your dreams!

Sorry these images are small, having blog problems! 🙁

Daddy’s first moment of seeing his only daughter in her wedding dress.

There was not a dry eye in the room. Such a special moment!

St. Timothy Catholic Church, Laguna Niguel, Ca.

Casa Romantica boasts an amazing room, perfect in showcasing the cake!

Natalie along with bride, also decided to showcase the wedding dresses of the bride and grooms Mothers and Grandmothers.

It was such a special and unique and sentimental touch!

The Cocktail Hour overlooked the Ocean and San Clemente Pier and was conveniently timed at sunset!

 The Bride and Groom chose to have a gourmet Popcorn Bar, first time I had seen that, so fun!

Casa Romantica has an outdoor courtyard which is perfect for a quaint and lovely reception!

Mission San Juan Capistrano

Wednesday, Oct. 3rd 2012

I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus due to technical difficulties and traveling this summer for some amazing destination weddings. I thought this 2 part wedding would be the perfect wedding to blog about to get back into the swing of things. As you can tell my images are small, so still trying to work out the kinks of my custom blog, my apologies. However, I hope you can see the genius in this wedding by A Good Affair Wedding and Event Production. Natalie’s weddings are always over the top and done with amazing taste and style, especially when you get amazing wedding venues like these. The Mission San Juan Capistrano is a dream wedding venue for any Southern California Wedding Photographer. The Spanish landscape is breathtaking and romantic boasting endless places to capture dream wedding images. The Mission is also the oldest building in all of California, so it is a very special place dripping with history and wonder. The Batista is a small Catholic Chapel on the premises and Victoria & Greg chose to have their military wedding there. Since this wedding is so awesome, I have way too many images to share in just one blog. I will blog first about the mission and their romantic images, and in the second blog I will showcase the Classy Wedding Reception at the Newport Hyatt Regency. I will link the part 2 blog here when it is published. Thank you Natalie and all the other vendors featured below for another GREAT wedding!

Family Shoot at Fullerton Arboretum

Sunday, Jul. 1st 2012

I have been shooting this family for over 8 years now. Veronica’s parents happen to be my old neighbors and I have become their family photographer. I shot Veronica and Daniels Orange County wedding a few years ago and now they have a little one, so family shoots are next of course. This shoot was shot at the Fullerton Arboretum. I was personally married there over 12 years ago, so I most obviously LOVE shooting there. It is gorgeous for family, engagement shoots, bride and grooms, etc. A wonderful shoot, at a wonderful place, with a wonderful family! Thank you for the continued support in my photography work. I look forward to watching Dominic grow up!

Angel’s Stadium Engagement Shoot

Tuesday, Jun. 26th 2012

I LOVE shooting at the Angel’s Stadium, this is my second engagement shoot and my couples rent out the entire stadium for an hour. This Fall I will shoot a huge Angel fan family for their Christmas cards. It is super harsh sun shooting there with very little shade and you are on a time crunch, but it is such a fun, colorful, and absolute unique engagement shoot to do. You sort of have to know someone to rent the stadium as they do not advertise it, but they do it! I really had a great time shooting this. The grooms absolutely LOVE shooting here. My first groom actually did a cart-wheel on the grass he was so excited, I had never had a more excited groom and huge Angel’s fan!

Congrats to my long time childhood friends Amber & Matt from Corey Elementary school in Buena Park, Ca. I have known these two for over 20 years. The grooms Mom drove my school bus growing up. I am of course honored to be standing in front of them on this special day. Amber and Matt are to be wed in August, and their lovely wedding will be held at The Turnip Rose in Orange County, California! I know this will be a fun time as Matt is a blast and was actually chosen as “Class Clown” our senior year…..hehehehe!

Orange County Rooftop and Bar Engagement

Friday, Jun. 1st 2012

Welcome to my new custom blog, where images are larger and each blog is thumnailed, so you can see more blog entries per page. I am still working out a lot of little kinks, but much better then the blogger blog I had with very small images and limited tools. I hope you enjoy it!

Congrats to Kelly and Ryan on their engagement and upcoming November Wedding in Orange County at Casa Romantica. I have the honor of shooting this super sweet couples wedding with Natalie at  A Good Affair as the coordinator, which always makes for an amazing wedding.

An extra big Thank You to David Tosti with Tosti Studios for shooting this engagement shoot for me. David and I have shot weddings together for over 5 years and he is one of the best. His style has always been very complimentary to mine. David has a more masculine and edgy take to his wide style of shooting. I tend to be more feminine and romantic and love close-up. David has always made my weddings look that much better and he is super cool to work with.  I don’t typically feature other photographers on my blog, but considering these are my clients and timing coupled with traveling did not allow me to do their engagement shoot, so I put them with one of the best and knew they would have a great time!

As you can tell by the images below, David has a way of making the couple look like they just stepped into the pages of a magazine. He mixes edgy with funky, but he also catches details, real moments, and the couple as they really are. I Love this shoot as it is a great mixture. Engagement shoots are great to me when they have  a mixture of it all. This rooftop and bar engagement shoot certainly makes for a unique engagement that is not cookie cutter or like everyone else’s. Great job David!

Family Photo Shoot at Fullerton Park, Orange County

Friday, Apr. 27th 2012

I have blogged so many photo shoots at this small park in Fullerton, California! It seems like most of my blogs have been here at this park lately, as I do mini shoot days here every few months and do 6-8 photo shoots back to back in one day. I have shot hundreds of shoots at this small secluded park and I know it now like the back of my hand. It is a great natural setting for family, pregnancy, engagement, and I have even shot many wedding shoots here. The park is rustic and often over grown and there is never anybody there. Enjoy this photo shoot of a long term client, I have shot every member of their family by now over the passed 8 years. Their kids are so stinkin’ cute that it was easy to capture great moments. I prefer to shoot candid, although I love stylized shoots too, but my personal style has always been to capture a family in their home or a natural setting and let the kids be themselves and the family sit together and capture what happens when they interact. Makes for great memories and real candid pictures to be cherished for decades to come.

Engagement Shoot at the Park, Orange County

Tuesday, Apr. 24th 2012

I know I always say this, but I LOVE this couple! Congrats to Matthew and Christine on your engagement and upcoming December wedding, I know it is going to be awesome! We had a great time doing this photo shoot of them in a secluded rustic park in Fullerton, California. This is a simple “mini” engagement shoot that I offer to my couples at half price every couple of months. I shoot in one location and do back to back photo shoots and I happen to love shooting at this park. We had a great sushi dinner afterward and got to know one another, we had a great time doing their day of timeline. I can’t wait for December, they have such great taste I know it is going to be amazing.

Happy Planning!

My Family Photoshoot in Boise, Idaho

Wednesday, Apr. 18th 2012

I am still working hard on a new custom blog, so I apologize for the uncompleted blog but I could not wait anymore to share our families shoot! I love this photoshoot in our backyard right outside of Boise, Idaho. Shot by the talented Kelly Zimmerman with Cherished Images, a link to her website below! Kelly did such a great job creating the reality of our family. I wanted a shoot where our animals could be included and I wanted a few silly shots since that is us, from formal to fun! I will be writing a follow up blog about our new lives in Boise and the difference between the city life and country life. It has been over a year now that our family has relocated and we are really enjoying life here. The first family picture include 2 of our dogs, 2 chickens, and you cannot tell but I am holding one of our teacup piglets. This was not the easiest shoot to pull off, so thanks again Kelly for coming to the house and shooting these for me!

We took my favorite images from the photoshoot and Kelly designed a great Spring card on canvas linen paper!
