Jill’s Birthday Party!

April 26, 2011 | 1 Comment

A few weeks ago Jill had her 24th birthday party in Long Beach.  Friends from near and far came to celebrate and enjoy this day with her.  There were guests from Sacramento and Texas!  Drinks, laughter, painting, dancing to win prizes, and an awesome venue thanks to Mr. Anthony Cruz!

Hope you all enjoy the photos!

Wine Weekend.

April 11, 2011 | Post a Comment

Guys!  I’m so excited to share the photos I took while up in wine country two weeks ago with you!  The scenery was amazing, the wine was delicious, and the company was excellent  :)

Matt, Albert and I arrived in Solvang on Saturday in the evening and took a trip to The Hitching Post for dinner.  Some of you may be familiar with the interior of that restaurant from seeing it in the movie Sideways.  It’s seriously one of the best dinners I’ve ever had – if you’re ever up in Solvang looking for some good eats, The Hitching Post is the answer (and although it is a tad on the spendy side, it’s definitely worth every penny)!

Sunday was by far my favorite day of the trip.  Some of you may remember when Matt took me up to Solvang for my birthday last year and I shot a few photos at Demetria Estate.  Naturally, we felt we needed to return to enjoy the awesome view from the estate’s patio of the grape vines growing all over the hills and enjoy their delicious wine.  We ended up staying for about 3 hours talking with the guys who work there and listening to their musician serenading the folks on the patio with lovely acoustic melodies.  Oh Demetria, I miss you already!

On our last day we drove a few hours north for a separate adventure which I will share with you in my next blog post  :)  For now, I hope you guys enjoy the photos from our wine-tasting extravaganza!

(Photo creds go to Albert on this one :) )

Back so soon?  Yes I am!  :)  I’m pretty dang excited to share this wedding with you all, seeing as how it’s one of my favorite weddings I’ve shot to this day!  Another winner shot along side the ever talented Jeannie Mutrias.

Maegan and Ross were married on March 5th, 2011 at the White House Restaurant in Anaheim.  Everything about this wedding was gorgeous; the bridge, groom and their adorable son, the decorations, as well as all of the emotions being expressed throughout the day.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves from here.

Hello again.

I’d like to present the first of two recent weddings I shot with Miss Jeannie (http://www.jeanniemutrais.com/).

Bernie and Mike O’Connor were wed on February 19th at the First Presbyterian Church of Anaheim (the church looked like a castle!).  Bernie and Mike were both insanely nice and had awesome senses of humor.  Mike’s dad enjoyed trying to scare all of the girls throughout the day by touching the tops of their heads whenever he could.  I could see exactly where Mike got his sense of humor from!

I had such a blast shooting with Jeannie and getting a chance to hang out with Bernie, Mike, and all of their friends and family.  It was so lovely to meet and have the opportunity to work with you all :)

Now for photos!
