Gema and Cameron Wedding

LD9A9714.jpg

Gema and Cameron got married this past July and I am so happy I am finding some time to finally share their beautiful wedding with you.  I can still remember the way they looked at each other with so much love throughout their entire wedding day.  Even though they are miles apart throughout the year they are living proof love grows stronger with distance when two souls are committed to each other. 

The cherry on top of their day was frolicking in this field as well as orange groves, it was so much fun!     

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!!

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!!
