Jeanie & Lorenzo’s Engagement Shoot

Working in the corporate world has its perks. I end up getting 80% of my betrothed coworkers to have me shoot their engagement and wedding photographs. Lorenzo is my 5th co-worker/client combo and I’m so honored that he and Jeanie chose us. They are SUPER friendly, chill, down to earth, and pair up quite nicely. Just saying… it could lead to great lookin’ kids. =) Anyhoots we explored Shoreline Village in Long Beach together before heading a bit south to the Seal Beach Pier for sunset, ice cream, and romantic pier shots. What a great way to spend my official 1st day back on the photographing front and to end a wonderful weekend.

Lorenzo’s got those buggard ‘i love you so much it hurts’ looks for Jeanie.

This would be so cool if it were their house they were standing in front of.

Jeanie’s got the ‘i’m so lucky in love’ look.

A friendly tug-of-war over ice cream.

Romance all the way…sigh.

This image makes me wanna go “awwww”!!

My Honeymoon Part 1

As promised sharing some photos from the first part of my honeymoon in Tahiti and the island of Moorea. After going to this part of the world I would highly recommend it to any honeymooner who can afford it. It’s great relaxation in paradise and lots of romance.  It’s just so beautiful you don’t even want to blink or sleep if you could help it. Definitely well deserved after so many long months of planning for the wedding. Wish we could have taken many of our friends along to relax with us who worked just as hard to make our day turn out so beautiful. Will share more photos when I get around to going thru the rest. Enjoy the photos as much as I had being there, taking them, and posting ’em!

This is our beach bungalow unit we called home for 4 nights in Moorea at the Intercontinental Resort.

The view from our bungalow is just spectacular! I’m lounging and soaking it all in.

Here’s Rob lounging away as well.

Shot of one of the bungalows at sunrise. Gorgeous lighting!

Detailing of the rocks that lines the resort’s infinity pool.

Beach front view from the pool.

We’re off to a lagoon tour and sharks & sting rays feeding.

Stop along the way to see the Hilton resort–it’s on the best spot in Moorea.

The water is shallow and super clear with tons of coral fish. Snorkeling at its best!

Sting rays are everywhere!

We did an ATV tour of the island.

We rented a scooter for a day to explore the island on our own.

Stopped by their public beach. This has got to be hands down the BEST public beach in the world.

Can you imagine how packed it would be if it were a public beach here in Cali?

Got this bikini from my bridal shower. How long do I get to wear it for?

Me relaxing in the water with coral fish swimming around me.

My hubby sunbathing.

Taking a nap before boarding our flight to Bora Bora.

Lookie who I ran into at the Bora Bora airport: Audrina Patridge! She was on her way home.

Can’t wait to share photos from Bora Bora. That island is GORGEOUS!! Have you ever seen the movie Couples Retreat? It was filmed there!!

Gina & Eric’s Wedding

I’m back from my honeymoon and ready to roll with the 6 more weddings we have this year. Sorry for the looong hiatus from blogging but a girl must take some time off since she only gets married once, yah know! I’ll share photos of my own wedding once my photographer gets ’em back to me in a few weeks. In the meantime, stay tuned in the next week for some sharing of honeymoon images.

For now, I’m so excited to finally blog about Gina and Eric’s wedding from late June which took place in Laguna Beach’s Heritage Park. These two are so made for each other. Eric is so smitten over Gina and Gina is obviously head over heels for her man. He proposed last summer at the OC Fair on the ferris wheel with all their friends/family involved–so cute! Be careful when viewing the images below since Gina does have a twin sister. You may think you’re seeing double and that is exactly what it is!

Eric lookin’ very serious about lookin’ good for his lady.

Eric following instruction from Gina on the whole tea ceremony process.

Love the detailing on this gorgeous lace gown.

peek-a-boo to those purple shoes!

I love flower balls–especially ones on shepherds hooks.

Their ceremony in the gazebo at Heritage Park in Laguna.

Eric is a huge Lakers fan–hence purple all around!

Love how her gown just looks like puffy clouds. Check out all that detailing!

They crack each other up–a very good sign!

I LOVE this shot of ’em. So in love!

The wedding party looking pretty tame at the moment.

Time to goof off.

They’re such a fun bunch!

I love to see tons of candles at weddings. It exudes romance.

Yummy cake!

Of course I needed a shot of the rings on a PURPLE candy stick.

It’s hard to capture an image like this with everyone’s joyous reaction to the grand entrance.

Sweet first dance.

Smiling ear to ear.
