Brigham & Emily [Part II]

Emily and Brigham were married on August 13th in San Diego. Everything (and i mean everything) was beautiful about this wedding.
ps…Emily’s mom made(!!) her wedding dress! I couldn’t stop telling her how much I loved it. Gorgeous.
In the few hours there were between the wedding and the reception (which, by the way, was held at Emily’s parent’s home), I got to hang around these kids for a little. So so so cute. They found a lizard. The named her Lizzy. And they fed her “soup.”
(note: by “soup” I mean some kind of concoction made of pool water and leaves.)
This wedding was a Jones-Welch wedding.
So naturally….
how awesome!??!
And….the cake cutting…
I love me a good cake fight:)
the getaway car..
I couldn’t be happier for this couple. Truly some of the most genuine people I know. And now that they’re Mr. & Mrs. they’re off to start a new life on the other side of the country! 🙁
(Brigham is a crazy talented musician and has a new life waiting for him out there.)
Thank you , thank you for letting me be a part of your (beautiful!) day.
The Story of us - August 25, 2010 - 4:08 pm

Great pictures! Funny story…I was holding one of those little girls and she kept telling me she needed to find Lizzy and for about 20 min we were going around looking for a "little girl, with little hands, that is her sister" (that's what she told me) then someone finally told me Lizzy was a lizard. Lol:-)
You are so talented!

Becky & Robert

Becky and Robert are getting married in October and asked me to take their engagement photos! They took me to a beautiful hilly park in Whittier that over looks the city.  It was hotter than hotter than hot that day. Even at 6 pm it was breaking 90! But it was indeed beautiful. And I loved meeting them and working with them. Such a cute couple with so much personality. Congrats you two!!

Summer Lovin’ Contest…just a few.

last month, my photographer friend, Sarah and I decided to put on a little contest. People could send in pictures of them and  their “summer lover” to a facebook page that we created. just any picture. nothing fancy.
from there, they could have friends, relatives, etc “vote” for their picture by either “liking” it or posting a comment. 
well…Krystal and Derek won that contest! So on Monday, Sarah and I were able to set up a little “vintage picnic” themed shoot for them. it was so fun!!
Krystal did an amazing job finding outfits…and doesnt she just fit the part so perfectly?? I love her coloring!
anyway…with that said..i couldnt wait to have all of the pictures edited before i posted some. So here is yet again just a snippet of another super cute couple. 
stay tuned!
