Magical Wedding even for a child?

Chris and Tanya had their beautiful ceremony at the Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, CA on the 7th.
I was mesmerized by how freaking perfect everything was... from the sun-setting at just the right time before finishing our couples shoot to the last dance. Everything was extremely heartfelt that even as an insider looking in, you could see how much everyone was truly happy for them.
Something terrible did happen this day though, the children that were part of the ceremony stole the spotlight with how adorable they were :P !!
Every now and again I'd check to see what they were up to and Oh my!!! Little rascals, I loved photographing them as much as the newlyweds.
They did NOT stop until the party was over. It was pretty impressing considering how much they were running around, I personally thought they'd be super pooped out (that's my age catching up to me haha)

Beauty and the BTS Photographer

The first week of January I shot with a team doing beauty.
I wanted to get some shots of a MUA friend in action and practice behind the scene shooting.
Photographer Ramon Bryce was shooting beauty while I was totally in my own world, this test shoot turned out to be nothing short of awesome though!!!

And here is a weird edit that I did in with some photoshop actions. It's kind of like a sci-fi look right??? hehehe

Christmas Portrait Session

A family whom I've worked for a couple times in the past asked if I'd be available Christmas day and I thought "why not?! after 2pm the gifts have been opened and the holiday cooking has just begun" so we worked out a good time and the whole family met up with me for a quick shoot before returning to the normal Christmas traditions.
My favorite photo was of the sisters' sons...TOO CUTE!! they remind me of a very young boy band!

Jamelle and Aaron Wedding

On December 18th, Jamelle and Aaron said their vows on a beautiful day in Temecula, CA.
Before the ceremony time came about the weather was gloomy and dull but, Jamelle being very laid back and easy going had no worries.
Low and behold... 10mins before she stepped out of a shiny corvette, everything had cleared up to perfection!!!

Photographing the happy couple was an absolute dream for me as a photographer, too in love to worry about everything except for the fact that they're celebrating their special moment.
