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!

Melissa and Travis, a love made in Coffee heaven

Melissa and Travis met in biology class during high school.  Their years of friendship made their relationship stronger and deeper than ever. They have a passion for politics and long distance running.  (I wonder if they do both at the same time) They have a deep understand of one another, and share so much of the same mindset, and a love for Santa Barbara.  

Throughout their session, a little bit of their personality started to peak out and I couldn't have loved it more, even though we started our session at a Grand Central's coffee, they acted like such pros when they started to create a small group of viewers ;) 

In three weeks they will be tying the knot and I can not wait to capture their amazing wedding!

The moment I met Citlali and Daniel I knew this shoot was going to be so much fun!  Besides greeting us with one of the warmest hugs, they carried a smile of excitement.  The light was shining, the day was filled with golden rays, and Citlali and Daniel were ready for an adventure.   Daniel kept his eyes on Citlali constantly telling her jokes, just to see her beaming smile.  Some of  the many features he loves about her.  They danced, held hands, and kissed as the last rays of the sun hit the treasured city.  Keeping each moment as a cherished memory and a reminder of them becoming husband and wife. The last part of this session took place in a parking lot overlooking the city.  It was the best way to catch the sunset!

Citlali and Daniel, we had a blast with you two!  Thank you for being so adventurous and laughing throughout your session.  By the way, that wind gave you such a Beyonce moment! I can not wait for your fall wedding in Springville Ranch, The Big White Barn.
