The Jones Wedding

I have never had a groom write me such a beautiful love story of how he met the love of his life, till Kam came along. Usually, the bride is the one thrilled to email me about their love story, but he wanted to make sure I got his side of the story. Without further ado, I will be giving you a glimpse on how Kam fell in love with Nayeli.

Nayeli is the kind of girl who goes after what she wants. She is a goal oriented kind of girl full of energy and spunk. This is the reason her clients love having her as their trainer because she pushes them to their unknown limits. She was in search of herself the year she met Kam and in no way looking for love. But even though she did not know it, love was going to come to her heart.

It all Started at the Umma Gym where they both worked as trainers. The first time they met it was very casual. Kam had heard of Nayeli before she officially introduced herself to him, but without knowing her name Kam knew he was talking to the girl his best friend had been talking about. Even though he thought she was cute, he tried to keep his distance, keep his conversations short, and not break guy code.

After trying his best to stay away and his best friend getting turned down by Nayeli, Kam decided to ask her out. Sparks flew during their first date with endless hours of conversations, they did not want their date to end. As a way to spend more time with his future wife, he decided to invite her to his family's UFC party.
After weeks of getting to know each other, and endless misunderstandings of who is in the friend zone. Nayeli being the go-getter that she is held Kam's hand and wanted them to define the relationship. In Kam's words, "Everything after that I suppose you could say is one huge messy (but wonderful) history. smile emoticon the end"

Nayeli and Kam you are the type of couple who light up the room with your humor and love for each other it was honor capturing such an important moment in your life.

Update* In less than two weeks they will both be welcoming their baby boy!! I am excited to meet baby Jack!

Angie & Marco's November wedding had perfect touches of vintage and romance, it was the first wedding I had captured in the city of Los Angeles.  

Angie's day started by her putting on her final touches to look simply breathtaking on her wedding day.  She spent her last moments at her parents home waiting patiently for her big reveal to Marco.  

Before the ceremony, they met in an LA hill top to finally get a chance to see each other for the first time before their life changing ceremony started.  

They decided to write a love letter to each other and read it moments before they were able to see each other for the first time.  Marco was actually blindfolded to hold back any peaking urges. He was extremely excited to see his future wife, his reaction to seeing Angie for the first time, is a look to this day I still remember.  

Angie & Marco thank you for the honor of allowing me to capture your first day as husband and wife.  Your love for each other is truly magical.  I hope you guys continue to have magical days in Disneyland!

 

 

Nayeli and Kam's Engagement Session

It was no surprise when Nayeli said yes! to Kam's marriage proposal. He planned weeks in advance for the perfect way to ask Nayeli for her hand in marriage. He knew her love for the sunny beach and planned a lunch and walk by the beach. Nayeli had no idea what was awaiting at the end of the their walk, he kneeled down(in a very Kam's style) and asked her for her hand in marriage. She is really hard to surprise, so this was completely unexpected for her. Her friends cheered her in the background as she nodded her head and uttered the words "Yes"

They plan to get married in December! What a more perfect to end this year and ring in the new year! I can not wait to spend more time with this amazing couple and I can not wait to capture their very first moments as husband and wife.
