Aimee & Ortenzio

Aimee and Ortenzio were married last Saturday. Both Aimee and Ortenzio seemed like very calm and collected people so I was very surprised when they were extremely nervous for their big day. It was really cute to see that side of them. When I got married I was a wreck and I wish someone would have just told me to breathe, which is what I told both of them. I just wanted them to relax and enjoy their day and remember every moment. I think as soon as they saw each other they were able to do that.

Aimee wore an amazing Lazaro gown that fit her personality perfectly. They even designed their cake to look like it. She also had a beautiful veil that we had a lot of fun playing with.

Thanks so much to my friend Melissa for coming all the way up from San Diego to shoot with me. I always enjoy shooting with Melissa!

Enjoy Spain Aimee and Ortenzio! Here's the slideshow!

Mariam & Frank

I love it when my couples get creative with their engagement shoot locations. I knew when I hadn't heard back from Miriam 24 hours prior to their shoot that she was having a hard time coming up with the perfect location. But they did an awesome job! The location they choose was totally unconventional, but very unique. Mariam wanted to shoot in the South Coast Metro area over by the Performing Art Center and there's lots of weird and cool art pieces over there. It also makes sense that Mariam and Frank are getting married at the Orange County Museum of Art. I had fun getting to know these two better and I'm really looking forward to their wedding in July! Here are a few of my favorite pictures and the slideshow!

Shelly & Kevin

I was really excited to shoot Shelly & Kevin's engagement session at the San Juan Capistrano train depot. I've shot a bridal session there, but never an engagement session. I was even more excited when Shelly asked if they could dress up. When I met up with them last Saturday, Shelly was wearing a gorgeous dress and Kevin was all dressed up in a suit. They looked so cute! After we got some cool shots Shelly and Kevin changed into more casual outfits. They wanted to go to the beach for sunset and I was trying to convince them not to because it had been so yucky the last couple of times I shot down there. We ended up going very last minute and Kevin almost killed us, but it was totally worth it! There was an amazing sunset! I'm very glad they convinced me to try it :)

I had a lot of fun with these two. I think Shelly had been looking at a lot of engagement pictures. She knew exactly what she wanted and was very easy to work with. I'm very excited for their wedding next month, which is on my parents anniversary, May 19th! Here's the slideshow!

Cindy's Shower

Last Saturday Cindy's bridesmaids threw an amazing bridal shower for her! No detail was overlooked. These girls spent all day cooking the food and it was absolutely amazing! What great friends!

Cindy looked amazing, as usual! But more importantly, she looked happy and healthy. I can't wait for her wedding in just two weeks! Here's the slideshow!
