Married: Tim & Jillian

This post is a bit overdue but there was so many great images from this wedding that it's taken me a bit to go through them all. Tim and Jillian, you'll be seeing the rest of your pics really soon. What a great wedding and one that I got to spend the whole weekend with the bride, groom, family and friends. The wedding was held at the beautiful Greystone Park in Beverly Hills and the reception in Malibu. We also made a point to spend a little time shooting on the beach the day after the wedding since we ran out of daylight when I was down for their engagement session. Take a look at some of my favorites from the weekend.

@ The Pumpkin Patch

Visiting the pumpkin patch is a must this time of year so this past weekend we got to take turns chasing Kyan through the hay maze. He loved it. I bet he went through it at least 30 times. At one time he wanted to take his little sister through it as well to show her just how much fun it was. She didn't seem too interested though and was much happier playing, and of course tasting the hay. I got a kick when she broke out with a little game of peek-a-boo from behind the giant pumpkin storage bins. Enjoy the pics.









The Big Big Big Big Big Fresno Faaaaaaaiiiiiiir...

has come and gone but we got to enjoy it while it was here. We spent a record 8+ hours with the kiddos enjoyin' the rides, animals, and junk food. Kyan loved the super bungee and kiddie coasters while Jordyn had a blast just tryin' to keep up with her big brother. I took the point and shoot and grabbed the favorites below along with a little video of Kyan's stand up comedy debut.

Mikayla & Marco: Sports Pics with Attitude

I got a chance to play a bit in the studio this weekend with Mikayla and Marco and snap some sports pics unlike that of which I would typically do. A BIG thank you to Shanda (Mom) 'cause she said "Do whatever you want, I trust you." I love it when clients allow me to do this as it allows me stretch a bit more creatively and not always go for the "safe" shot, not that there's anything wrong with that. I lit these a bit more dramatically to give an edgier look with attitude. Hope you like. I can't wait to show you the collage I'm going to build with these and the other "dive into the bean bag" action shots we did. It's going to be killer.

Married: Jeremy & Kyla

This is a bit retroactive since I photographed Jeremy and Kyla's wedding prior to starting my blog but I was so excited about my favorite pics that I had to share. The wedding took place in Oakhurst, just south of Yosemite, at Erna's Elderberry House. If you've never experienced Erna's, I would highly recommend it. The grounds (chateau, spa du sureau, restaurant), and guest service is nothing like I've ever seen and was a perfect location for J&K's destination wedding. The details were amazing. From Kyla's Vera Wang dress, the personalized vows, the hand written seating assignments for both ceremony and dinner, the floral arrangements, tables settings, and the gardenia embellished 3-tier cake, nothing was missed. Thanks you guys for having me share in your wedding weekend. Enjoy some of my favorite pics.
