Dreamy and Vibrant French Styled Wedding at Rancho Las Lomas

 
 
417A1024.jpg

The inspiration behind this shoot is to celebrate the beauty of Rancho Las Lomas and the freshness of living in Orange County. Soft butter yellow hues embrace the delicate rays of the sunlight, while the blue tones resemble the clear crisp skies. This palette was meant to pop out against the terracotta throughout the venue and embrace the blue tiling at the Teatro. The romantic feel that is prominent throughout the property is brought in with a mix of modern and vintage decor pieces…French style seating, fragile glass china, and crystal hanging light pendants. All attendees and viewers should feel as if they have been transported outside of Southern California to create a unique photographic story through the design elements provided at the shoot.

Ana & John first met at work.  John fell in love with her the moment he first laid eyes on her.  Ana in the other hand was not interested in him quite as fast as he was to her.  John was completely smitten with Ana's beauty, but what he loves most about her is her resilient personality.  Ana has such alluring personality and brings nothing but love to everyone who surrounds her.  John is the prince Ana was for all her life.   After a couple of dates, she fell in love with the way he made her laugh and the way he made her feel protected.  

Their wedding was everything she ever dreamt of and let me just say I was in love with all the attention to detail she put into their wedding. Her gold floral centerpieces were beautiful!    

My jaw dropped when I saw the back of her Essence of Australi dress I mean come on! She looked STUNNING! Through out the entire night, they danced like no other I even had to get into the groove! I just had the best time with these two!

**Update of the couple they are currently expecting their first child together!! I am just too excited for them both!! 

 

Evelyn & Julio Wedding

One of the many clients I fell in love with.  Evelyn and Julio had their ceremony Skypark Drive in Torrance.  It was a rainy Sunday afternoon as Julio and Evelyn said their I do's.  Rain is always seen as a sign of fresh start and to them I wish them nothing, but the best of luck and love as they start their first year as husband and wife.  To this day I can still remember the way their entire family knew how to have a blast and the unity they all had.  

Ana + John's Griffith Park Engagement

Ana and John are one of the many couples I've had the privileged to photograph who have inspired me to see what love can be.  I was shocked to see how hands on John was throughout their entire wedding.  He was the one who reached out to me and gushed about the beauty of Ana.  He told me all about their plans after their wedding, which included buying their very first home together.  

Throughout the entire session, they had a blast posing like the world was their runway.  I could not get enough of how Ana used her outfit to her advantage, which included her sister's handmade flower crown.  She looked and felt like the most beautiful bride.  This summer day was so worth it as we enjoyed this amazing spot till the sun set behind them.    Afterwards, we enjoyed our summer night eating pizza at my favorite Italian restaurant in Echo Park.  Stay tuned till I show you their beautiful wedding. 

Grayson and Joe Engagement Session

Grayson and Joe are the definition of laid back couples.  From the moment we met we met I knew they were going to be a ton of fun to work with,  I still remember their love for vinyls and old school music.  As we did the session we talked about the different records we own, of course Joe beat me he has THE BEST collection.   This session to me was extra special because we literally created beautiful images right on their neighborhood of El Segundo, getting a closer glimpse of who they are.  It was a beautiful cloudy morning when we did the session, perfect temperature for a summer morning, and I got the chance to finally meet the infamous Lennon! He is such a cutie <3

 I love the way they make each other laugh, how they balance each other out,  and I still can’t get over how amazing her ring is! 

 I got the opportunity to see them and the entire family  again during my Christmas session and what a surprise I received from them,  my very own light blue record player.  I use it every time I am editing my work! It was such an honor to have two individuals who not only are madly in love, but also open their doors to me.  I will forever be grateful to have had the honor to document these special moments in their life. 

 

Citlali and Daniel

Citlali and Daniel's wedding was straight out of a rustic fairy tale.  There love for each other is something you see in a movie.  From the way, Daniel proposed to her, which was in the middle of her doing a play for her church to the way he protects her.  He is her home, her rock.  

When I arrived at Springville Ranch I knew it was the perfect location for these two to say I do.  In the middle of a town was this venue beautiful venue filled with different nature elements that took my breath away.   Citlali and Daniel are an amazing couple and truly had a perfect celebration of their love with their loved ones.  I am excited to share a few of my favorites from their day!

 

Grayson and Joe

I had the honor and privilege to photograph Grayson and Joe's wedding this past fall at Blue Water Grill in Redondo Beach.  With the last taste of summer days, they were filled with genuine love for one another.  Family and friends descended at Joe's house in El Segundo for the ceremony and followed them to Redondo Beach.  I was in awe to see the love their family and friends shared for them.  Their vows were honest and heartfelt as they looked at each other the entire time they were saying them, and may I add they also had some jokes here in there. 

One of my favorite moments was seeing how Joe reacted when Grayson was walking down the aisle, his smile is one I will never forget.

Also, they sure know how to let loose on the dance floor.  All of their family and friends joined them to the sound of the 80's music! cheers to you both, for your growing love, and for meeting you both!

Ana and Eduardo's Engagement Session

When I first met Ana and Lalo, straight out the bat I knew he was head over heels for her.  Taking that same energy of this immense love to their engagement session.  I had a blast photographing the both of them, from creating little scenarios with them to having fun in the water! They were such big sports when it came to getting a bit wet.  They loved it! I can't believe their wedding is quickly approaching in February! 

Gema and Cameron Wedding

LD9A9714.jpg

Gema and Cameron got married this past July and I am so happy I am finding some time to finally share their beautiful wedding with you.  I can still remember the way they looked at each other with so much love throughout their entire wedding day.  Even though they are miles apart throughout the year they are living proof love grows stronger with distance when two souls are committed to each other. 

The cherry on top of their day was frolicking in this field as well as orange groves, it was so much fun!
