Oak Glen Engagement- José and Stephanie

It was a Halloween Party. Stephanie was dressed as Chuckie (yes that would be a evil looking possessed doll) and José had on his Army Uniform. Jose’s friend had noticed Stephanie the moment she had walked in, but she found him a bit arrogant and was relieved when José asked her to Dance. They immediately became friends. It took four dates and a beautiful sunset for them to have their first kiss. José knew he would never kiss another girl again.
He told Stephanie that it was his friend’s birthday and picked her up in a limo. Stephanie did not want to go and thought that a limo was too much for someone’s birthday. Annoyed and upset she got in without make-up. (Half way to the Queen Mary, she asked the limo driver to stop at a Walgreens.) Dinner overlooking a beautiful ocean view for only two people became a little more obvious that it was not a birthday party. Jose dropping to one knee holding a ring asking her a question finally made it clear to her that she was the reason an entire restaurant was staring. She said, “Yes!

Corona del Mar Engagement- Danny Loves Jackie

Danny sold the cars and Jackie funded the deals. They talked on the phone and eventually they met. Danny asked her out, but Jackie did not want to mix business with pleasure and so she said, “No.” Yet… she missed him and would tell him. So Danny asked her out again. Once again he received the speech of how it was conflict to date because of work. So Danny let a month go by and lost touch until he sold another vehicle and once again he heard the words…”I missed you.” He asked her out again, adding the words…”as friends.” They met for lunch…”As friends,” and had a great time. The friendship date was over and the next one was real. Before going in to see the movie, Danny kissed her. Jackie’s response was, “What are you doing?” Danny answered, “Kissing you…Duh,” and kissed her again.
Fast forward a year, an exact year of that first date…August 19th, 2013. At Disneyland, in front of the castle Danny proposed. Jackie cried..She would never miss him again. She said, “Yes.”

Pasadena Wedding Photography- Andrew and Elizabeth Adan

“You see me through thick and thin, because everyday with you is like I’m born again, but we’re only friends and you know that I see you as so much more babe. I got time. If my time is spent waiting only for you, then I got time, and and I’m never going anywhere, as long as you love me then I got time. Just say that you love me, that you can’t live without me. That you wanna go and get married. That’s all I wanna hear. I got time. And I’m never going anywhere.”  - Time, Bobby Tinsley

Elizabeth had always said,  ”no,” to him, because she didn’t want to lose her best friend. So Andrew  waited until she realized she could never lose him.  His love would be never end and so that day he waited again, waited for her to get ready, to get to the church , and he waited for her to walk up the aisle to him and be his forever. Two best friends got married!  So many incredible things made this wedding amazing… an old classic truck, the “A Team,” bridal party, a first dance on clouds, the most incredible singing rap toast from the Maid of Honor  and the bridesmaids and a party that would just not stop!!!

South Pointe Middle School Fun Run 2014

I love it when my worlds collide… teaching and photography. Today at South Pointe Middle School the PE teachers hosted a Fun Run! Kids had about 20 minutes to complete a 1.5 mile course. Teachers armed with water guns, silly string, and confetti were strategically placed along the course. Medals were given to fastest male and female each period. Prizes were also awarded each period for best costume. Lots and lots of tutus:). The band played fight songs. The principal ran in heels!
