    I believe the camera is the most incredible invention ever invented. It captures actual moments and emotions connecting those in the picture forever to the photographer, which is why I love it when the clients become my friends.

Nicholas is a Conquistador, a senior at Don Lugo High School. He starts school earlier than most because he is on the Academic Decathlon. Yup.. smart and cute, witty with a hint of sarcasm, but kind and sensitive. If he could, he would have a video camera permanently attached to his hand, but for now, he is the president of the Film Club. He created this promotional video for the school. (He’s not in it. He’s holding the camera.) He is fluent in Marvel Comics, Star Wars and can quote from thousands of movies. You will find him writing, reading, filming and arguing with favorite me.. that Star Wars is better than Star Trek. (Live long and prosper Nick. Love you. )

    Good afternoon,
    My fiancé and I are looking for a photographer for our wedding in May and we were referred to you by our DJ (Ultimate music entertainment) he said your one of the best photographers he’s had the pleasure of working with! I LOVE your candid style !! I see you have packages set up already but do you also customize packages?ReplyCancel

When a couple wants a picture with every guest, it makes sense. Those that are invited are a special part of their lives. They are family that have seen them grow up, know their love story and looked forward to the day almost as much as the bride and groom. Yet, the idea of individually taking table pictures is literally something I refuse to do…for lots of reasons. First, it annoys the guests. There they are eating dinner, enjoying the company of the table and here comes photographer, asking everyone to stop eating, socializing and stand up and smile. What you get is a group of people with annoyed looks and fake smiles. Second, it takes up time. The DJ is motioning the photographer to hurry up when table 17 of 25 is being shot. Third, I honestly would rather eat dinner and get amazing pictures of the rings, but that’s just me being selfish. Yet, I still believe that shots of the guests are necessary so right before the dancing starts we call everyone to the dance floor… or right after ceremony… or both. What we get is a shot of the bride and groom and everyone who loves them .

While one photographer takes the shot from above, another photographer can shoot straight on, getting close ups of the bride and groom or of their guests. Below the flower girl reacts to the kiss.

These were shot right after ceremony.

This one right before dancing was scheduled.

We start with a nice picture… everyone looking up…

We have fun ….

And literally start the party!

Daleyza…papi y yo nos gustamos desde la primera vez que nos vimos. Tu papito siempre ha sido muy amoroso, cariñoso y guapo, pero en verdad creo que fue Dios quien lo escogió para mí. Tu papá y yo crecimos juntos, éramos muy jóvenes cuando comenzamos a noviar y cuando nos casamos también; yo tenía 21 años cuando tu papá me pidió que nos casáramos. Aún no terminaba la escuela y tú abuelita  tenía miedo que después de casarme no terminara mi carrera, pero no fue así. Yo sabía lo que quería y sabía también que tu papi me apoyaría. Su apoyo lo fue todo para mí, terminé la universidad y él me dio la libertad de cumplir mis metas. Durante esos años nuestro amor se hizo más fuerte, crecimos y maduramos juntos y fue en el tiempo de Dios que tú llegaste. Tu papi y yo estábamos cada vez más enamorados y Dios era el centro de nuestra unión.  Tu papá y yo estábamos por cumplir 6 años de casados cuando Dios le hizo la promesa a tu papá  de que pronto bendeciría mi vientre y así fue. Un par de meses después y venias en camino.  Vendrás con  un corazón noble y amoroso y serás un princesa porque eres hija del único Rey de Reyes, tu padre Dios.

Nic stands at 6 feet 7 inches and is all muscle. Yet, you can’t help and notice his piercing blue eyes and his rugged good looks. He gives you that look of power and a second later a gentle smile. His casting ranges from business man to thug…

Craig and Kathy will be celebrating 32 years of marriage on October 6th. They met at church around middle school age, but didn’t really notice each other until they were college age. They were at a New Year’s Eve party and hit it off and shared a kiss at midnight. It was cold so Craig gave Kathy his jacket so then days later she had to return it…it led to long talks after church, dates to the movies, skiing in Big Bear, beach days…love, plans, a proposal, a wedding and two beautiful daughters.

The dress Kathy is wearing is going on a container to Malawi due to ship in August. The young women in the African village want the same experience of wearing a beautiful white dress on their most special day, but they can not afford it. The Mulunguzi church is collecting bridal gowns for the women to use on their wedding day. Kathy, one of the most caring people I know, can’t wait for a young woman in Malawi to have the same joy and happiness as she did on her wedding day. “If a white wedding gown helps to give her that joy, then I am so blessed to help.”

A second container will ship around November or December. If anyone wants to donate in ANY way financially or otherwise, they can contact

    Beautiful images of this renewal. Love the idea that the dress gets to be worn a second time by someone who does not have the means to purchase such a dress!ReplyCancel

Sometimes love has a plan and destiny helps it. Orlando and Evelyn met through a mutual friend. Orlando asked her if she went to the same church his mom attended. Evelyn did and had seen his mother there. The following Sunday, Orlando was at church with his mom. He asked her to a Dodger game. Three months later, at that same church, he would ask her to be his girlfriend. Before they had met, Orlando’s mom had been trying to get them to meet… perhaps she had even made a silent prayer in that church. Now her prayer had been answered. Her son had met the woman he would fall in love with and ask to marry.
It was Christmas Eve and Evelyn had asked for Ray Ban Sunglasses. Orlando had put the ring box in the sunglass holder. Knowing that Evelyn was shy, it was a private moment.. no crowds only them… and love and destiny. Evelyn said, “Yes!” to forever.

Special thanks to Lorimar Winery for allowing us to capture these memories on their beautiful property.

David and Rubi met through social media on June 18, 2007. It was Rubi’s cousin Yoli who mentioned that a friend of hers from school had found Rubi attractive after visiting her page. One Saturday morning, Rubi got a friend request from a guy named David, who took her breath away with his profound stare. David started the conversation with ” Hello Beautiful.” Rubi read the message and instantly had a smirk on her face. They conversed every night and day after that message. Days went by, and they finally agreed to meet. Their first date was to see Rush Hour 3 and they watched it accompanied by Rubi’s tag along sister Esmeralda. Regardless, they enjoyed each other’s company and laughed the entire time. Rubi knew he was the one. His smile captured her eyes instantly. The deep look of his eyes melted her away. David officially asked her to be his girlfriend at the end of the night, where they sealed it with their first kiss.

On Christmas Day of 2016, David insisted that they open their oldest son’s gift to them together. Rubi started to open the present. It was a beautiful picture of their son’s first day of second grade. David seemed concerned, but yet confused. He said, “That’s it?” Rubi answered, “What did you expect?” David asked her to look again but there was nothing. David had a look in his face that seemed scared. He glanced over at their youngest son and said, “Look!” In his little hand, he held a gorgeous ring that sparkled from a distance. Rubi’s eyes watered up, and David got on his knee and asked the question that Rubi had been waiting for since the day she met him. “Rubi, will you marry me?”. Rubi started to cry, but with tears of joy, she answered, “yes,” at the top of her lungs.
