He took out his cell phone as she walked the aisle towards him. “I had the best view. No one else could see what I was seeing.” What he was seeing was love.. happiness… she was about to be his forever.  They literally smiled through their entire wedding… except maybe for the minute that she pretended to steal  his groom cake… and then it was laughter once again.

University of Redlands Engagement- Shaylla and Adam

How many years have to pass before she realizes you were the one? How far does someone have to be so that you long to be with him? How much distance needs to exist before you are close to one another? Shaylla and Adam have learned the answers to those questions along their journey.
They met in high school. Adam had a crush on her and asked Shaylla to the Homecoming Dance senior year but Shaylla was not interested. She was insecure, shy and intimidated by the prospect… but she remained his friend.
Graduation came and they went their separate ways. Then two and half years later, they reconnected on Myspace. Shaylla had moved to California. Adam was still in Washington. Soon they were calling and texting everyday. This went on for six months. Then June 2008, Adam was stationed in Fort Irwin, California for a few weeks of desert training in preparation of being sent out to Iraq. He was only 125 miles away! Shaylla made the two and half hour trip to see him and Adam snuck away from his unit to see her. Yes.. their first date… and kiss were forbidden.
On October 2008, Adam was deployed to Iraq. First stop Kuwait. It was over the phone that Adam asked Shaylla to be his girlfriend. Calling..Skyping.. Spending his weeks of leave together and finally he was home.. and his home had to be with Shaylla. Two years and three dogs later, Adam proposed. In a candle lit cabin in Big Bear spread with rose petals, Adam got down on one knee and Shaylla started crying. Years ago, she had said, “No,” to a Homecoming Dance, but on April 21, 2012, she said, “Yes,” to Forever.

The Symbol of Love-The Rings!

The wedding ring, that most famous and instantly recognizable symbol of the joining of a man and a woman as husband and wife in the institution of marriage is always one of my favorite things to photograph. I love using my macro lens.

Uncontrollable laughter, sobs as you hug the one you love, that flirtatious look that brings a mischievous smile and a single tear rolling down a face that ironically means happiness. I love capturing emotion!

University of Redlands Wedding- Janet and Ty’s Fairy Tale

Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale, were the words on the invitation.
There were no evil stepsisters, no frogs to kiss just an amazing love story witnessed before family and friends. Ty and Janet got married!

Shoes Cinderella would be jealous of…

No Fairy Godmothers but lots of helpful bridesmaids.

The Prince also got ready.


The University of Redlands was the backdrop for this beautiful wedding.

And so it began…

Janet was walked down the stairs by her father in law and then her mom walked her the rest of the way to her Ty.

Swearing before Family and Friends to love one another forever…

Love’s First Kiss!

The University of Redlands is a beautiful and enchanting place that makes dreams come true.

Cinderella lost her shoe!

Every Fairy Tale has those supporting characters: 7 dwarves, mice… but Ty and Janet had instead an awesome bridal party.

The Royal Ball..

And they started the journey of living happily ever after…

  • KERRY & PATRICIA PAPAIWell, Ty and Janet we have so much to say. That means I can go on and on what I really think of you two. First of all. We want thank you for being there when we had our mishap this past December. Both of you had welcomed Patricia and I in your home. Oh I forgot the doggies too. For this God will pay back double for the things you do for people. For everything you’ve done for people is very noticeable upon the people around you. So may God give you two the love, finance, and a child soon that you deserve.
    We love you two so much,
    Kerry and PatriciaReplyCancel
