Wedding at the Tuscan Gardens in Kingsburg, CA – King Richard & Mary Rose

I’m so excited to show this beautiful wedding I shot in Kingsburg, CA. It was a warm, sunny day in the Valley. The Tuscan Gardens was so rustic romantic with their endless rows of blossoms, vineyards and trees. Rose also did an amazing job picking out the colors combinations for this one. Everything just came together perfectly, cheers to these sweet loving Newly Weds!

She found exact matching bridesmaid shoes, how about that! Her very handsome bride’s men!  Love love love these colorful summer colors Oh boy!

Homey Backyard Engagement – Fresno, CA

On my visit to Diana & Jason’s home in Fresno, I fell in love with their cute homey lifestyle. Their love is simple and beautiful. They just enjoy coming home to each other’s company, having a cup of tea, and cuddling in front of the TV with their beloved pets until they fall asleep. Jobs drove them into a long distant stretch and now they’re happily living together, engaged. Their sweet enduring relationship inspired me. They’re are a very modest and hippy couple, enjoying a more simple approach in life… walking the dog, watching over wild cats, meditating, biking to the store, holding hands, and giving tulips. After 6 years, they still get butterflies around each other! I wanted to show how their love in a small town home setting glows. As I was looking at their cool hippy things around their house and jungly yard, I thought “Why not do a backyard engagement!?” Diana and Jason were on board! It was so much fun designing a setting that represented this milestone in their journey. And there was no better place to shoot it, than their own home in the Valley (after we pulled out the weeds) =)

Congrats Jason and Diana, I love you guys!!

There’s no place like home. When I first saw this yard, it looked like a jungle of weeds and trees. We pulled them all out for this cozy set up!  Pan is their wild pet cat, always roaming around the house and hunting. And isn’t this Vintage TV a treasure? Jason found it at a dump and took it home. I fell in love with it and thought it was just perfect. So we cleaned it, fix the 3rd leg and wallaaah! On top, that 1970’s radio was a gift from a hippy when Jason gave him avocados and a ride during a spiritual sabbatical. The radio works like a charm and they turn it on for their pets every time they leave the house.  Bobby’s on TV! Jason gave her Tulips for the past 6 years. Bobby’s their baby. He loves cuddling and making Jason Jelly.

The living room They’re super philosophical and peaceful beings. That morning light is gorgeous!! Love these moments before kisses.

Thanks for tuning in!

Stephanie & Michael Wedding – Morgan Run Club & Resort

It was a beautiful wedding in one of San Diego’s finest golf courses, Morgan Run Club & Resort. The perfect green hills, calm lakes, and tall palms set the perfect tone for Stephanie and Michael long awaited wedding. They’ve been through it all together and even had 3 adorable kids. The anticipation was in the air and executed into one of the most emotional raw weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of documenting. From tears, laughter, silliness, and a bunch of cute kids, it couldn’t have gone better.
Her son made the perfect mini groomsmen on duty.
Remi wanted to be just like her Momma. These moments when she getting dressed were toooooo precious. Stunning Bride I must say. The fellas are looking smooth. They opt for an intimate first look and I couldn’t be happier to oblige. First looks are a great way to spend more time together during your wedding and not to mention, get more photos together!! We always love taking funny formals of the wedding party =)
Stephanie was glowing
We were able to steal this couple away for some more portraits around Morgan Run’s fresh greenery =)

These speeches filled the room with lots and lots of tears and laughter.

Romantic Boudoir

Here it is!! This is a romantic boudoir sequence telling the story of a couple spicing up their love life. This couple was hoottt and all in for the idea so imagine the excitement on my face! We wanted to keep it very classy, mysterious, sexy and romantic. The team did an amazing job and everything came together so nicely that I had to make a Music Video featuring IYES’ sultry sexy version of Crazy in Love.Boudoirs are a stretch from my usual wedding and engagement work, but I really enjoy this side of photography. We had such a blast producing these images. I look forward to future boudoirs as women are becoming more and more comfortable in their skin. I can’t emphasize how empowering these shoots make people feel about themselves physically and mentally. Its an attitude and confidence they master… such privilege to capture every frame of it.

Make-up: Fresh Face Era
Hair: Uyen Designs
Venue: Andaz San Diego

Joshua Tree Engagement – Diana & Matthew

Get Ready!! I’ve always wanted to do an edgy and romantic engagement shoot in a real DESERT. There’s nothing more dynamic than the juxtaposition of a steamy couple against hot rock formations and interesting cacti. I just needed the perfect couple… When I first met Diana and Matt, I instantly knew working together would be a blast. Diana was so organized and sweet and Matt was very down to earth and supportive of his bride to be. It turned out they knew exactly what they wanted and didn’t want to waste any time. Diana has been following my work for a while now and entrusted me as their photographer pretty early on. Yay, I love them =)

During their engagement planning, they were very open to my ideas. When I suggested perhaps a Desert Engagement shoot, they were both immediately on board!! It couldn’t be more fitting because they’re a very outdoorsy couple (especially Manly Matt who’s done everything adventurous in the book) and they both love visiting National Parks across the states! So, we made our way to beautiful Joshua Tree National Park and wa-la!!

Even though plural of “cactus” is awkwardly “cacti”… I prefer “cactuses..eseses” So I name this photo, “Caught between the Cactuseses”

Joshua Tree Engagement

Its been 5 happy years for Diana and Matt so far. When I asked them why they love each other so much, their answer was simple: “He/She makes me a better person.” It was their differences that brought them closer and stronger. When Diana first met Matt, she admitted she was very materialistic and cared a lot about little things that weren’t important. The carefree and grounded Matt encouraged her to let go of the unnecessary and helped her enjoy life with a fresh perspective. On the other hand, she’s very detailed oriented and is a great planner at work and in life. She pushes Matt on making positive changes in their relationship one step at a time. Their latest “project” is  saving money and being healthier by learning how to cook at home more often than going out. (And Matt takes out trash!). They’re both constantly steering each other into a better direction and grew a lot as partners in life.
