Franciscan Gardens Wedding | Jasen + Melissa

Jasen and Melissa chose the charming Franciscan Gardens in downtown San Juan Capistrano as the charming back drop for their elegant destination wedding.  Southern California welcomed them with warm blue skies and warm temperatures.

  The lovely fall colors of Melissa's wedding bouquet were absolutely stunning.

The "first look".
I adore when a bride chooses to see the groom prior to ceremony time, allowing the photographer to make the best use of time and location resulting in the best possible photos. 

I was thrilled to learn that Melissa arranged for a time of romantic photos at the nearby historic Mission San Juan Capistrano.

Melissa, you are gorgeous!

An outdoor evening of dinner, toasting, and dancing under the stars at the Franciscan Gardens was a perfect celebration of nuptials with 24 carrots catering fabulously providing the meal.

Congratulation Jasen and Melissa, I was honored to document your wedding day!  Be blessed!

Wedding: Franciscan Gardens
Coordination: Evelynn Korszyk
 Floral and details: Jenny B Floral Designs
Hair and Makeup: Carrie Purser

Riverside Botanical Gardens | Roger and Olivia

Heavy rain was in the weather forecast. As I drove to the Botanical Gardens I hoped that the dark clouds coming our way would move slowly enough to allow us enough time to photograph. With the campus soon closing and the sprinkles falling, we had to work fast.

When I learned how Olivia had quickly bought an umbrella to use in the shoot I was relieved to know she wasn't going to let a little rain keep us away.

Roger and Olivia display a love that is so genuine. I mean, c'mon, just LOOK AT THEM.

I'm looking forward to documenting their big day next month, it's going to be simply fab.

Senior Shoot | Albert

Albert's rockstar mojo and edgy style made Sunset Boulevard the perfect atmosphere for this guitar shredding senior graduate!

Albert brings a cool vibe to the Hollywood scene with his long dark locks of hair, leather jacket, and tranquil demeanor.

And what could be sweeter than sunset pictures on Sunset Boulevard?

Perhaps my favorite image of them all...Albert is the definition of COOL.

Congratulation to this graduate! Class of 2012 for the win!

Otto Instrument | Red Carpet Event

For the skilled and dedicated staff of Otto Instrument this was a special night to remember. A fabulous red carpet reception held at Mountain Meadows Golf Course and hosted by the wonderful Otto family.

The company was celebrating 50 years of service in the aviation industry.

Shortly, after the prime rib dinner was served, many awards were given to employees for various accomplishments including years served in the company. The evening followed with a celebration of music and dancing into the night.

The Otto family.

Hunter Mariano | CD Release Concert

It's been an absolute blessing for my family to know and develop relationships with some of the most talented musicians in our church community, including Hunter Mariano. His new CD titled "Blink Of An Eye" was released this past fall. I was happy to photograph the release concert in our home church at Harvest in Riverside, CA.

Visit to learn more about his music!

Shoots | Gino + Yvette

Besides a good sushi roll and perfect hair color our conversations come back to photos and how fun it would be to get in front of my camera. Yvette is my fabulous hair stylist, storyteller, and friend. We spend hours together throughout the year talking, laughing, and of them being a photo shoot and I have been looking forward to this day ever since.

Aren't they CUTE? I love the chemistry between much, we're already planning on a double date soon.

We stopped in at their favorite spot for drinks. It's where they like to visit and catch up by the cozy fire after a long week. So fab.

We ended the afternoon in an outdoor mall area where I snapped this shot of Gino looking swag...

Thank you both for the pleasure of working with you and a day to remember, cheers!
