Venue: Bagramian Hall

Romantic Session: Heritage Park

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!" 

Thank you to Jessica and Fabian, your love for each other is one I will always remember.  Your classic and romantic wedding transcended through the touches of blush pink, peonies, and your elegant mermaid dress.  Little Aidan is lucky to have two loving parents by his side! 

 

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. 

 

Bright Fall Inspired Wedding

OMG! I am so excited to finally be able to share this amazing inspired session with you all! What a better way to start November than by receiving the news that our shoot is featured on The Perfect Palette today and available for you all to see our creativity unfold. 

On April I started brainstorming with Marcie from the Cucumber Bride to figure out a look for the shoot that would represent our brands.  We knew we loved DIY brides, with touches of boho, and of course color! The next step was finding a wedding stylist who can envision our Pinterest crazy ideas and make them into a reality! Along came Gaby from Cause We Can Events! boy was I Glad I met her at The Thrifted Sister's event. So many great vendors came together for the sake of creativity! I am so glad I was able to work with so many talented and kind wedding vendors.  

I am in Cloud 9! I can't stop saying it...and I probably won't for a while! So many beautiful elements were added to this shoot from the cake, the calligraphy, the flowers, furniture, and boho rugs.. this list can go on! Everything was simply perfect! I can't forget how we all got to enjoy our hard work with a Churro and maybe Champagne! 

I hope this styled wedding inspires my 2017 brides and all the upcoming "I do's" You know the holiday season is coming!!

With summer starting today and being the longest day of the year! I wanted to share Noherana's graduation photos.  Following her sister's footsteps, she is now also a graduate from CSULB with a Psychology degree.  She comes from a family of strong women so receiving her bachelor's degree is just one step to a successful future. ! I can not wait to see what her career has in stores.
