    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.

Julie and Billy stood next to each other. A few feet, an ivy wall and twenty minutes separated them. They reached out and held hands as rays of sun came down them as if blessing them. This was a wedding with a lot of examples of love and devotion. A record number of couples who had been married over thirty years would fill the dance floor in the anniversary dance. And if you think that all this serious love stuff was the theme of the party…you weren’t there. Love is fun, not serious. So when the best man pretended he couldn’t find the rings, when Billy smashed cake on Julie’s face, when the mother of the groom and the groomsmen took over the dance floor, this was also an example of love.

Julie and Billy did not want to see each other before the wedding so…..

Record number of couples dancing the anniversary dance. Many married over 30 years!

I think these guys were plotting something…

Her parents were out of town and so Anna threw a party. Little did she know that one of the boys that would show up that night would one day ask her to marry him. The second party Steven went to was for her birthday. He told Anna he had a present for her and asked if he could give it to her…it was a kiss. It would be the first of many.

Love finds a way no matter the distance, no matter the circumstance, it shows up and if it is true, it will stay. They were young kids living in separate states when they both happened to be in the same chatroom. Michael took a bus trip to Arizona to meet Alexis. Before either of them even said a word, they hugged. Trips to California, trips to Arizona and the usual drawbacks of a long distance relationship became their love story. Fast forward to the front of the Disney castle where Michael knew he could never be apart from her and where Alexis knew he would always be the man that made her happy even if at that moment she was crying.

Her name is Belle! She weighs 24 pounds, stands 30 inches tall and has 6 teeth! She loves butterflies, her puppies and kitties, peak a boo, Disneyland, splashing in water, wind chimes, music and dancing and her big brother Brandon. She can say, “Dada,” “Mama,” and “Ball.” Her favorite foods are mac and cheese, spaghetti, yogurt, blueberries and oatmeal. She is turning one! But I have loved her for years. Since the moment her parents arrived at my home, and I heard their love story and gave me the honor of being their wedding photographer, I knew that one day they would make amazing parents and so I loved their kids… long before they were even born. Happy 1st Birthday Belle Garner!

Katie walked out the office door and saw Miguel working. He was driving a fork lift… Their eyes met and it was love at first sight. Miguel came into the office and Katie gave him her number. He texted and suddenly they were inseparable…. and a secret. They kept their romance hidden from everyone at work. Then came the reggae concert. They were all there and acting like co-workers. The smoke made Katie sick and she started walking out for fresh air when she suddenly fainted. Miguel was immediately by her side saying, “Babe! Babe! Are you okay?” Their co-workers looked at each other and said in surprised tones, “Babe?” The secret was out. Miguel and Katie were together. They were in love.

Adrian anxiously stared at the back of the church. The doors opened and Sonia walked in escorted by both of her parents. She smiled and walked up the aisle, never taking her eyes of him. Adrian and Sonia’s love is bigger than tradition and so before Mass started, they shared a kiss.
Their wedding had the most amazing bouquet hand made out of broaches, cute cowboy boots, a groomsmen who would not stop modeling for me…even in church, a bridal party dancing in to their reception to, “Sexy and I know it!”, a flower girl and ring boy who took the cutest pictures beside a tree, a ranch decorated with beautiful details and hay, a lot of emotional toasts and lots of love.

What does love mean after 25 years? It means knowing that Spiderman and Marvel characters will take over not one room of my home but two. It means that I will hug a camera before I hug him. It means knowing that he will not call or text me all day because he doesn’t feel well. It means that I will call him a hundred times an hour anyway. It means that we can’t find our wedding rings. (Yup.. we took them off because we both hated wearing rings and safely put them away…somewhere.) It means that he has accepted the fact that I can’t cook, don’t want to cook, have no time to cook, won’t cook and I accepting the fact that he refuses to try new places to eat. It means that he has given up on trying to make me organized…my closet and drawers will always be a mess. It means that I have learned not to move anything in his garage. It means that he will spend his money on Legos and movies and he will always put a bottle of wine on the shopping list even though he doesn’t drink. Love means that I miss him…. that I wish he felt better… love means that he knows.

I tell him that I love him for all the hair on his head, his millions of dollars and his collection of antique cars. The truth, there’s a lot of reasons. He is the guy I can call to bring me a control so the wedding slideshow will play that I forgot and he will drive 20 miles out of his way to bring it. He is the guy that will help me shoot an emergency engagement session for an out of town couple on Christmas Eve and then have hot dogs as Christmas Eve dinner at Sam’s Club. (True Story.) He is the guy that says, “Let’s go to breakfast,” and will take me in sweats and no make up. (Wish this wasn’t a true story.) He is the guy who will scrub his hands raw after a long day in a body shop to make sure he can look presentable in front of my clients. He is the guy that will not discourage me from standing on a ledge 40 feet above the ground to get the shot…instead he will hold me and make sure I don’t fall. He is my body guard for celebrity events, keeping me and my camera safe and even though he wants to brag, he can keep a secret. I can vent and he will listen and pray with me and for me and for those I love. He will talk me through it and make me laugh. I love him because he loves his kids. I love him for his faith. I love him for the respect he has for me. He can pretend to be tough, but when he smiles I see dimples. Love you lots Jesse Ulloa. Happy Birthday BFF!

Sometimes love just happens. She was a cheerleader and he was a skater boy. He liked her. She didn’t know and even tried to match him up with her friends. (I know, it sounds like a song co-written by Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift.) Then as naturally as it could happen, they happened. They became a couple. They don’t even have a date to celebrate their beginning. Just one day, Alana introduced Justin as her boyfriend and that is what he always knew he was. He loves her for her kindness. She loves his sense of humor. (It’s the same one her dad had.) It should be no surprise to anyone then, that the proposal was just as perfect as the the beginning of their romance. It just happened. She knew he had the ring. She asked him for it, “Just give it to me.” He said, “It’s in one of those drawers. If you can guess which one, you can have it.” The drawer she opened was the one that had the ring. It was one of her drawers. Yes, what is meant to be…is. Love just happens.
