steffie & nick | engagement

engagement session - disney california adventure edition!

we had the opportunity to shoot at disney california adventure with steffie and nick earlier in october as they're big on disney.  disney california provided some neat and different backdrops from the usual you see in disneyland. some pictures have the iconic disney stuff, others just totally different -- which was exciting for us to work with

on top of that, shooting them ended up being totally our treat as they quickly became our own personal tour guides.  they were kind enough to introduce us so many different things we've never heard of or seen, along with all the history behind it.  and, as you can tell, the camera just loves them.  we're looking forward having just as much fun on their wedding day in may 2013.
 

aaron & tracy | wedding trailer

right off the bat, we knew aaron and tracy were good people and we knew we'd love working with them. had a great consult meeting with them and, in return, they seemed just as trustful in our work which always makes a good partnership.

on their big day, we soon learned our first impression of them was definitely spot on. you could tell it in the way those closest to them spoke of them. for their trailer we wanted to try something a bit different with the song choice and transition: faster cuts to go with the beat but starting off with slow cinematic intro.

enjoy watching!

jake & wendy | wedding trailer

when these two looked in each others' eyes, it was as if no one else was in the room with them - when wendy walked down the aisle, their first dance, and throughout the whole night.  just watch the video and you'll see what we're talking about.  the whole day was accented with a beautiful sunset, a huge full moon, a great view, and a lot of laughs and love...

visi | three-year portrait

its always an honor when you have clients that trust you so much they come back to you for another session. and in this case, with visi and monica, its definitely not an exception. we've had the privilege of capturing visi every year (and more) from even before he was 1 year old. and man, has he grown!! the kid has so much attitude and, even though i know the word is over-used, SWAG. seriously, just look the picture in how he holds his age (3) up... thank you, monica and visi for giving us the opportunities over the years to photograph you and your family!

dumaplin | family

we recently had the opportunity to photograph our good friends again. this time we hit the beach with the whole dumaplin clan, including the latest addition: noa. you may remember their maternity photos from earlier this year.

we had a blast with this good-lookin' fam by hotel del coronado and even got to capture noa's first time getting her feet wet in the ocean!

Jared & Kimberly | Wedding

kimberly & jared are not only a couple of hard-working nurses but some of the kindest people you'll meet. you can see it in the relationships with their family and friends - how tight-knit jared and guys were as they joked, how kimberly took the time to initiate conversations with everyone around, and we hope to have captured that in these photos...
