I mentioned before this is going to be the year of weddings for me, not only do I have some awesome weddings coming up to shoot, but both of my cousins are getting married and I have the privilege of being Maid of Honor to both! A few weeks ago I got to wander around Old Town Temecula and take my cousin Julianne and her finance Ralph's engagement photos. We also stopped off at Monte De Oro Winery where they will be having their wedding in November. It was a lot of fun shooting with Julianne again, she was my muse in college, haha we lived together and she was down to model for whatever harebrained I came up with. We had so much fun doing random photoshoots during my Brooks days that this was just icing on the cake! I am very excited with the photos from this shoot! What a beautiful day it was! Enjoy!
Cabo San Lucas Destination Weddings
I had a lovely day shooting with Cassie at Kit Carson Park in Escondido earlier this month. Her natural beauty was so captivating, she reminds me of the 90's singer Jewel. Cassie will be graduating from the Fusion Academy in June and will be going on to college to pursue her acting career, Im sure its just a matter of time before we see her on the big screen!
Last year I had the honor to photograph a lovely little ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This was HUGE for me mostly because I was finally able to bring the business back home! When I was 4, my dad moved down to Cabo and started a well known restaurant. A few years ago we celebrated his Mexican citizenship, all the hard work he had put into the bar paid off and his land was finally his. All this being said it was awesome being able to include him on what I do ( I even let him drop me off :P) Ali and Jamie are from Nashville and were able to use a friends Villa in Chileno Bay for the ceremony and reception. It was a beautiful day with great weather! The ceremony was heartfelt and sentimental but the party after was where it was at! It wasn't a traditional reception, but it was some of the best fun I have ever had at a wedding and by the end of the night everyone was in the pool (with clothes on!) Here is to Ali and Jamie!
