Claudia + Jose's wedding at Rancho de Oro

I am so excited to finally get to share Claudia and Jose’s Spring Wedding at Rancho El Toro with you gals and guys! The venue offered so many beautiful locations to shoot. The hills behind the venue were absolutely breath taking. It was the perfect backdrop for their romantic session.

To me one of the most heart warming moments of their wedding was seeing the unity between the two families. Their love for both their children was seen through out the night, it was especially seen when they did their dances with their parents. We all had to hold back the tears!

Claudia and Jose hold a special place in my heart from their San Diego wedding to their unforgettable wedding. Thank you guys for choosing me to capture your special day!!

Erica and Adrian celebrated their ten years together by officially tying the knot.  

They unofficially first met on Erica’s sixteen birthday, but it wasn’t until later Adrian and Erica noticed each other they were in each others childhood photos.

 Their paths attempted to cross several times, but for some reason the stars aligned and they caught each other’s eyes years later in Dockweiler beach.  

Erica and Adrian are the kind of couple who’s love inspire me.   Erica carries a joyful and warming personality that made me feel like we were old friends catching up.   

I was blown away by how she planned her galaxy wedding day theme.  As well as the importance she placed on her romantic photo session as well as the love I can see in Adrian's eyes when he looked at his wife.

From her first look to the sunset romantic session at Malaga Cove library.  I could not get enough of the chemistry and love they had for each other.  Her lace detailed David's Bridal dress shined throughout her entire wedding day. 

I'll never forget capturing that moment during their romantic session because it's exactly why I love being a wedding photographer.

Erica and Adrian, I'm so happy that you two have found each other.  You two are the reason why I further believe in Serendipity.  I'm thankful not only to have been your photographer but also that I had the opportunity to meet such an incredibly kind, fun, and adventurous couple.  

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you both and that you're both exploring the world once again.  

 

 

Dreamy and Vibrant French Styled Wedding at Rancho Las Lomas

 
 
417A1024.jpg

The inspiration behind this shoot is to celebrate the beauty of Rancho Las Lomas and the freshness of living in Orange County. Soft butter yellow hues embrace the delicate rays of the sunlight, while the blue tones resemble the clear crisp skies. This palette was meant to pop out against the terracotta throughout the venue and embrace the blue tiling at the Teatro. The romantic feel that is prominent throughout the property is brought in with a mix of modern and vintage decor pieces…French style seating, fragile glass china, and crystal hanging light pendants. All attendees and viewers should feel as if they have been transported outside of Southern California to create a unique photographic story through the design elements provided at the shoot.

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. 

 

Gema and Cameron Wedding

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!
