Rios Family

The Month of May was a special time in the church for many families. I had the chance to photograph the Rios Family. They were so lovely. Gorgeous husband and wife couple with three darling little girls. I photographed their family session and then also photographed their eldest daughter’s communion portraits. This was truly a joy to capture them being themselves. Happy and so in love with each other. I’m happy to share some of my favourites from each session.

 

Wolf Honey Farm

Wolf Honey Farm is seriously one of my favorite venues in Southern California. It is located somewhere off in Temecula Wine Country and it boho eclectic style speaks to so many couples and is one of the coolest hippest locations to have a wedding. I was invited to second shoot for my amazing friend Rachael Bernstein with Uriel Photography- the soon to be MRS. JONES! Rachael was recently engaged so I’m super pumped for her.

This wedding the King Wedding and the afternoon ceremony took place out in the open under this frame of a teepee. There were old church pews and cool old Persian rugs running all of the aisles. The bride pulled up in this cool old blue truck and it was perfection. There reception took place under the stars and after the first dance the Groom stole the show when he grabbed the microphone and sang, “Sweet Caroline” to his doting bride. I’ve second shot several weddings and this one will always stay with me. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. King!

Alison, Nathan & Paige

Making it a point to blog and share more of my work this year. This was a session gifted to this gorgeous mama by a couple of her girlfriends. I mean how rad is that?! And if you’re wondering if you can gift a session to someone, The answer is YES! We all need to celebrate ourselves and our special moments- SO.. hire me to document them for you! HAH! So, I chose this location because I loved the rocky coastline and it was close to the setting that I work with back home in Imperial Beach. It was a location in Orange County, that had crappy cell service and of course parking by any beach in California is the pits so by the time Alison found parking and located me on the beach at the bottom of this cliffside cove, we realized we had maybe about 15 minutes of sunlight and blue hour left. Looking back at these, It’s crazy to think that even in that little time we had together I scored some killer photographs. She later told me this was her first family session and well that just made my heart even more happy. Check out the gallery.
