Diana + Daniel Wedding

The moment I met Diana and Daniel for our initial consultation I knew we were going to become great friends! Maybe it was the way they both kept it real throughout the session, which I love! We stayed talking for hours to the point we lost track of time.  

Let me tell you a little bit about them! They met in high school senior year in biology class.  Daniel and Diana were both very smart students.  One day Daniel needed a tutor to help him with his homework, but we all know it was an excuse to talk to Diana.  They finally went out, they got married a couple of years later.  It wasn't the way they both dreamt of, but they knew they loved each other so much, they were willing to wait till they were able to walk down the aisle and make their eternal love official in front of Gods eyes.  They both attended college as well as worked rigorous hours at work to be able to pay for schooling, in the back of their mind they both knew they wanted to marry through the church.  

Finally, in March,  they were able to make their dream and family's dream come true.  Diana with a huge smile on her face walked down the aisle.  This church had special meaning to her family it is where she, her sisters, and brother did their first communion and confirmation.  Once they finally said I do and got a few moments to thank God for this glorious moments,  they walked down the aisle, Diana made eye contact with her proud father. 

They danced the night away with their family and friends.  I have never met a family full of life and happiness.  So many moments they will never forget.  Even Edgar and I (once we were off the clock danced the night away with the bride and groom not because we were weirdos, but because they invited us ;)  ) 

Diana, we LOVE you & Daniel so much! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for bringing us in as photographers turned friends, and treating us like family! Please let us know when you are back in town, we miss you both in Cali!! 

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! 

 

Kim +Zach's Forest Engagement Session

Kim and Zach are one of my favorites! Their love for adventure hiking, the great outdoors  and each other made this session one I will always remember.  It was our first time venturing into a different location, a hidden location close to Sequoia, once visited by Kim when she was a kid. We all rode out with Zach's uncles truck following behind us, it felt like we were in a parade driving down the road.  One of the surprising element is while Kim and Zach shared a kiss in the field it started to rain, it made this session that much more special.  We could've stayed here all day, the location was too breathtaking.  Kim and Zach will be getting married this October, I am too excited for their upcoming wedding

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.
