Briana and Jr's Wedding at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes  

B+J Getting Ready-12.jpg

Brianna and Jr’s summer wedding at Plaza de la Culturas was filled romantic touches. I loved this venue because it was filled with so much cultural history. After all, It is located across the streets from Olvera Street.

Their romantic session took place at University of Southern California! This was another location filled with so much history. It was the perfect location for their whimsical inspired wedding theme :)

One of the most touching moments in her wedding was her father daughter dance. Tears filled the room as she danced to “My Angel Baby” with her father.

After the speeches, they danced the night away with a banda. I had such an amazing time photographing and celebrating them both and I am thrilled to share their day with you all!

Erica and Adrian celebrated their ten years together by officially tying the knot.  

They unofficially first met on Erica’s sixteen birthday, but it wasn’t until later Adrian and Erica noticed each other they were in each others childhood photos.

 Their paths attempted to cross several times, but for some reason the stars aligned and they caught each other’s eyes years later in Dockweiler beach.  

Erica and Adrian are the kind of couple who’s love inspire me.   Erica carries a joyful and warming personality that made me feel like we were old friends catching up.   

I was blown away by how she planned her galaxy wedding day theme.  As well as the importance she placed on her romantic photo session as well as the love I can see in Adrian's eyes when he looked at his wife.

From her first look to the sunset romantic session at Malaga Cove library.  I could not get enough of the chemistry and love they had for each other.  Her lace detailed David's Bridal dress shined throughout her entire wedding day. 

I'll never forget capturing that moment during their romantic session because it's exactly why I love being a wedding photographer.

Erica and Adrian, I'm so happy that you two have found each other.  You two are the reason why I further believe in Serendipity.  I'm thankful not only to have been your photographer but also that I had the opportunity to meet such an incredibly kind, fun, and adventurous couple.  

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you both and that you're both exploring the world once again.

Nancy and Albert's engagement session at Big Bear was a winter wonderland! As soon as we arrived at this beautiful location we had one goal in mind to hunt for snow! We became true adventurers for the day! 

Here is a little about their love story: 

We met in 2013 at our previous employer. We became good friends we had the same lunch schedule. Albert was NOT my type and he will say I wasn’t his! 2 years later both of us recently single we started to change the conversations from basic watercooler talks to getting to know each other on a more personal level, suddenly we both started feeling strange feelings for each other we both tried to fight it. Albert left the company and when he did we decided to go out for happy hour, the rest is history we've been inseparable ever since!" 

Nancy and Albert I can't wait to photograph your wedding this coming October! It is going to be so epic!

These two high school sweethearts. Still going strong! 

A couple of words from the gorgeous bride: "We love LILY!! Thank you for everything you're AMAZING! I just wanted to let you know that the experience I had with Lily Tapia Photography was more than we could ever ask for. In choosing our photographer, the selection process was very difficult we wanted the "PERFECT" person and we are overly joyed with you, Lily! You made the engagement shoot so much fun and exciting and you were honestly our main guide on the day of the wedding too! You went above and beyond just being a talented and fun photographer you made our day smoother. We are LOVING each and every shot of our wedding photos! Overall such a great experience planning wise and I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone!"

They met five years ago and have supported each other through each different life stages from graduating this year to now saying I do.  Through thick and thin they have made their bond even stronger.  Their wedding at Villa De Leon was the perfect combination for their romantic outdoor wedding.  Not only did they show immense love towards one another, but everyone in that room shared their love towards them that day.  Andrea and Nate are both two classic souls, Andrea is such a timeless woman, the second she walks into a room you can’t help but turn notice her warmth and loving smile. And Nate is such a down to earth guy, who is willing to do anything for Andrea's happiness. I was so surprised when he was the one who contacted me to capture his wedding, not only that but how detailed he was.  It showed how committed he was to Andrea's happiness.  

Their wedding was the perfect representation of classy and romantic at Villa de Leon. Their entire wedding day was filled with celebration and a perfect color palette of hues of pink.  I had a blast getting to know these two and capturing the most important day in their lives.  I am excited to share a few of my favorites with you all!

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

417A7943.jpg

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.
