Any of my brides out there that are looking for the perfect gift for your husband. You have to contact the studio to talk about For His Eyes Only shoot. The grooms are loving the gifts. Even if you are already married and looking for the perfect gift. Images form these shoots are the perfect gifts. We do custom albums from these shoots that are the most popular gifts from these shoots. Contact the studio to view samples. I’ve been doing about 4 to 5 shoots a week. I have so many great ideas fo rthese shoots. All my brides hav esuch a blast doing these shoots. Besides myself I also have a great team of female photographers that also do an amazing job with these shoots.
We are booking a bunch of shoots right now to use as Xmas gifts.

I love shots of eyes. They make for great cover photos on the albums.
How amazing are her eyes!!!!

On September 11th the Turnip Rose hosted a dinner for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. It’s a great event for these great kids that are fighting cancer. The Turnip Rose goes all out for these kids. They had a variety of activities for the kids including pinball machines. They also had these amazing food stations and desert bars.
Every year they have the kids do art work for a line of greeting cards that raise money for the research.
Be sure to chec out the website.
www.pcrf-kids.org
then click on the PCRF Store to check out the cards. They are for such a great cause.

I donated the use of my photobooth for the event.I had a blast attending the event. The kids had such a blast in the booth. It is so inspiring to see these kids that are fighting for their life with giant smiles on their faces.

Here are a few shoots of these amazing kids hanging out in the booth.

I just finished a weekend of 3 weddings. I started off shooting at The Hyatt HB.
It was such a beautiful day. Everything went perfect. Thanks a lot to Jennifer of OC’s Finest Weddings. She did all the planning for the wedding. She did an amazing job. I know the bride loved her.
These were so laid back. I loved it.

The brides always have such great smiles during the getting ready process.

I’m been looking forward to shooting these two. Their wedding is taking place October 11th in Como Italy. I feel so priveledged that they hired me to photograph their big day. Their wedding is less than a month away. So keep checking back.

I shot their engagement pictures on Thursday. We hung out in downtown San Juan Capistrano. There are so many great places to shoot.

We started off at The Mission. These two are so great for the camera.

The train pulled up just in time for me to use it as a great prop.

I’ve been wanting to blog this wedding for sometime. This is another one of my August weddings. These two are so great. Kristin had a smile on her face all day. I loved it.
I started and finished the day at The beautiful Balboa Bay Club. Another beautiful wedding location right on the harbor of Newport Beach.

Kristins mom was so excited to see her daughter in her wedding dress.

This was a wedding I shot in August. It took place at the Marriott Fashion Island. I had a great time getting to know these two. I did a few different shoots with them. I always had a blast.
The Marriott recently went through a major remodel inside the hotel. The inside of this hotel looks amazing. The hotel also has a great new ceremony site.
I also need to mention how great it is to work with the staff at The Marriott. They are the BEST!!!!!!!!!

Just after getting the dress on.

I’m going to try to start this blogging thing again. It’s so hard to keep up when you’re shooting everyday. I’ll be back tracking this week some of the weddings that I missed.

Yesterday I got to hang out in Newport Beach.

On the same trip to San Francisco I got to shoot 2 engagement sessions. The 2nd of the two was Jwssica and Ryan. It’s such a blast to get to hang out with my couples out of town.
We started this shoot out on one of the trolley’s.

I’ve been having fun traveling for engagement sessions over the summer. During the month of July I was able to shoot a couple in San Francisco.
Here are a few shots from one of the shoots.
Lance has this great 67 Cadillac. So we thought we would cruise around the city in the car. It was so much fun.

That’s Alcatraz in the background.

This car was such a great prop.

That’s the Golden Gate in tehe background. The fog started rolling in. So we only had a glimpse of the bridge.

They wanted a moment alone so they kicked me out of the car.

We ended the shoot with a drive down Lombard Street.
