    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.

The Reams have been in front of my camera for years. I actually met Ally when she was a teenager, long before she was married and a mom. I have been blessed to take her family pictures since her eldest was a baby. We did a marathon, super fast, quick, hyper speed… yes, I know you get the point…session this year. Stand there, look cute, snap and we were done!

Reams Family

Jason was ready to give up. He was done. He couldn’t find a parking spot. Finally, he got one and walked in late to the party, only to see Megan and her friends walking out of it. They were on their way to get more drinks. Suddenly, he found himself going with them. Texting, talking, hanging out..Chemistry. Jason taught it and it was definitely there. Megan felt it too. She usually ran away when a relationship was serious, but this time she wasn’t running, but instead imagining her life next to his. In the simplest terms, she wasn’t freaking out when Jason talked about weddings and marriage. And of course, Jason had every reason to talk to about it. The girl he loved was beautiful, kind and caring and loved him back.
And so, on what Megan believed to a girl’s night out, Jason waited atop of the cliffs of Torrey Pines for them to return from their stroll. He had a TARDIS at his feet. Unlike Doctor Who, he did not have to explore the universe. Everything he wanted was in front of him. The ring was in hand. Megan said, “Yes,” to the man she loved.

Jason loves Megan

Family is a gift and friends are a blessing. I was blessed to capture their Wedding exactly 5 years before on the date we took these pictures. Now Janet and Ty are the parents of three… Angel Brandon, Belle and Brady. Blessed to do what I love.

Michelle read the note Donny had sent her and teared up. In a few short hours, she would the marry the man who caught her attention with the online words, “Hey! What’s up?” The man who saw confidence, when she proclaimed to be shy, was about to be her husband and a smile once again appeared on her face. Donny was the guy with whom everything seemed right. She played with her veil and laughed, remembering how Donny had insisted they climb a boulder so he could propose.
Meanwhile, across town, Donny messed around with flasks of alcohol and modeled in front of a Rolls Royce. Marrying Michelle and having fun were the only things on his list. His face, only for a second, showed seriousness as he waited for the moment for Michelle to appear and walk toward him. His smile appeared once more, when he caught sight of Michelle walking, laughing to her brother’s whispers. Donny and Michelle smiled through their vows, the ring exchange and messed around with the sand. They kissed and half way down the aisle to the cheers of family and friends kissed again. There would be bridal party antics, emotional toasts, an unforgettable garter dance by the groom and sparklers, but what always stood out was Donny and Michelle’s love for one another. Forever was theirs.

I am blessed to be a wedding photographer. I get to capture the ultimate promise of love. Sometimes, it is not just the bride and groom who become my friends, but their bridal party, family and friends. Gina and her husband Jeremy are a perfect example of that. Their youngest son Cole was a newborn when I shot Gina’s cousin’s wedding. Now she chases and picks up in her arms two adorable boys. Cole became a big brother to Jace.

Surrounded by ten caring bridesmaids, Tori got ready. She smiled, she laughed, teared up and laughed again as she realized that in a few hours she would be walking down the aisle to Jessie. Finally dressed and more beautiful than ever, Tori did a “First Look,” with her dad. She walked up to him, tapped him on the shoulder and he turned to see his daughter dressed as bride. He hugged her and thanked God once again for the day. He proudly walked his daughter up the colorful aisle as Jessie’s face filled with emotion. As soon as Tori was by his side, Jessie whispered, “I love you,” to her and she did the same. A few moments later, they whispered that phrase again… and again. They vowed to love each other forever. Appropriately, the theme of their wedding was Up. They were best friends who were ready to share every adventure together and their story had just begun.

Love has a way of bringing two people together. You could be born in different countries, live in different cities, not be looking for love and somehow it finds you. Julie had taken a year off from medical school to do a fellowship when the cute guy from Jordan working in the UCLA pathology department caught her eye. Ramzi, of course, could not help but to notice the pretty blond. They would become friends and then go their separate ways to study medicine. Facebook would be their connection over the following two years.
A first date took them to a hike to Escondido Falls in Malibu. Malibu would also be the city when they noticed that they were in love though neither admitted it.
One spontaneous evening while driving along the coast they stopped at Gladstone’s restaurant in Malibu for dinner. After dinner, they took a stroll together along the beach. It was the perfect evening captured by a perfect selfie. Caught in that photo was the love that they had for each other.
It was of course to that same restaurant where Ramzi insisted they return once again. His intention was to capture all the emotion of love and happiness in that selfie. This time, he told Julie that this where he first knew he was in love with her.
A month before though, Ramzi had started teasing Julie about wedding rings, to the point that she accused him of buying one. So Ramzi had played the mind game and said that they were not, “there,” in the relationship. It worked. Julie was not expecting the proposal. Julie had tears in her eyes, as Ramzi started to bend down to one knee and pull out the ring. Her first response was, “jerk” as she slapped her hand against his shoulder…followed of course by a happy dance, the words, “yes, yes, yes” and a kiss.

Ramzi is from Jordan. Engaged men also wear a ring. They
