There were jesters, monks, nuns, peasants, nobles and royalty. Our kids danced, ate and played. Love it when my two world cross paths. “Blessed to do what I love!” and “Yup, your tax dollars at work!”

In this modern age, it is sometimes a click of a mouse that brings two people together, but as high tech as meeting someone can be, falling in love will always be traditional. After seeing each other’s profile on E-Harmony, Danny and Yessenia met for coffee. What was supposed to be a simple meeting turned into hours of conversation filled with laughter. Their first official date would be at Din Tai Fung and Danny already knew he wanted to marry her. The day he bought the ring he had to give it to her. So he came home and insisted Yessenia see him hit some golf balls in the back yard. Yessenia saw him hit three, the fourth time instead of a ball was a box on the tee. She said, “Yes.”

Love of Family

The Sermons

Nancy was actually on date with someone else at Knott’s Scary Farm when she met Will. Will was the lucky guy who had been given an extra ticket. Will didn’t know it then, but his luck was to become even more amazing, for he would meet the girl he would fall in love with and want to marry. Even though Will knew Nancy was the one the moment he met her, Nancy’s first impression of him would be that he was annoying, loud and always trying to be the funny guy. She did not see the connection, but became his friend… then his best friend and then the friend that started to fall in love with his kindness and big heart. They balanced each other out. She was the serious one and he was the goof ball. She calmed him down and he made her laugh. Opposites do attract… when they are soul mates.

Will and Nancy

It seems like yesterday I was shooting their engagement session and telling how they had met. Then came their wedding… and now a baby boy. This was the fastest portrait baby/ family session ever shot.  I wish I’ve more time to hold him, cuddle him and play with him but another couple  whose love story was just starting was waiting for me to capture it.


Philip walked into the restaurant where Jessica was celebrating her birthday. She didn’t know it then, but the nice guy who drove her home, who she thought was too young for her would be the most amazing present she would ever receive. It would take a year, but at another party, after a few drinks, they started talking. Philip would take her dancing at The Echo in L.A. for their first date. Jessica knew she had found the right guy with who she wanted to spend the rest of her life. She always felt comfortable with him. Hanging out was so easy and fun. Their love was so natural. They became parents and Phillip became an amazing father to their daughter. Phillip also knew there was no other for him. So as the song, Sextape played, in the middle of the mosh pit at a Deftones Concert…He got down on one knee and opened the box. Jessica said yes, to forever.
