I’ve been gracious enough to be invited to capture this wonderful day and life-changing day in the life of these little ones and of their respective families. I say life-changing because whether they know it or not, this particular event will shape the way they live their lives, their outlook on the world and themselves. This is easily one of the first defining moments for a child and how he or she identifies in this world, and for that I am very grateful to be there and capture these moments. So without further adieu, I give you this collection of adorable little people being blessed and being supported by those who love them most.
Last year I had the great pleasure to photograph Leann & Chris for their engagement session! This was truly one of the best experiences of the year. I absolutely fell in love with the idea of a styled/themed engagement shoot and once we were there the excitement never went away! I’m proud of the images we walked away with this day and I cannot believe that we are a little over a month away from their big day!!! Last week I had the chance to scout the location of both the ceremony and reception. Swooooon!!! This will be the second wedding I shoot in the Dana Point | San Clemente area! I cannot wait to continue making this area of Orange County a part of my stomping grounds! Without further adieu, here are Leann & Chris in their lovely vintage themed engagement shoot!
Please make sure to check out the Short Film I put together for Leann & Chris! You can find them below after all of the photographs!
I absolutely LOVEloveLove Wedding Prep shots of The Bride! There is such a vulnerable element that is very visible in the images. Everyone is filled with excitement, nerves, anxiety! & at this moment those closest to the Bride are doing everything in their power to achieve perfection! Truly a remarkable conglomerate of loved ones, and to be invited into these very intimate moments is such an honor and pleasure! Today I am featuring this Lovely Bride - Stephanie Botta. Prep Shots were taking at the Biltmore Millennium Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

Back in January, I had the opportunity to collaborate with an old friend Rose Carriaga for the first time… I had been an admirer of her work as a Makeup Artist for some time now, and when the opportunity presented itself I jumped right into it. We were fortunate enough to be graced by some lovely faces - Melissa, Melle, Myana & Caity. The following images from this shoot were taken in my make-shift Home-studio. I look forward to putting this space to more use!
