Ai-Chau and Huy's Long Beach Wedding

We met Ai-Chau and Huy a few weeks before their wedding day. Rewind on the booking process, we met them over the phone and after sometime during the conversation, they decided to book us! Ai-Chau and Huy are both in the medical field. I know it had been a while since their wedding, and again, we had been lagging on our blog, but, we would like to share our favorite photos of these couple. 

We fell in love with this couple on their wedding day. Just the warmth on the conversations plus their super cool friends. It felt like family, the moment we stepped in their hotel room taking photos of everyone. It is such an amazing feeling when people come together to celebrate their loved ones special occasion, traveling from so far away just to be a part of their a special day.

Thank you so much again guys for making us a part of your big day, we love how your photos turned out and it is such a pleasure to be able to capture your beautiful moments together. Good luck on all your future endeavors and again... cheers!

Evil Queen Themed Party

Today's blog is a little bit personal and very special to me. I rarely talk about myself or my personal life, not in social media nor my website, however, this one is special. A few months back  (I know it had been a while, I had to really think hard if I want to put this online or not), my baby girl (not a baby anymore) turned 7!! And wow! How time flies! I cannot believe how quickly that went by. It took us a few months to figure out the theme for her party. You see in our culture, "seven" is a special birthday, it is like a quinceanera, except this time, she is just "seven". 

My daughter is not your typical seven year old girl, she always says, she wants to be different than the rest. So, viola! Different it is. She decided that she wants an evil queen theme for her party, and instead of inviting princesses over, she wanted to have villains instead! Now, that is what you call a fun party.

Before the big day, we have decided to set up a photoshoot of her in her evil queen attire. Here's a sneak preview:

 

I know she is not your typical 7-year old and that is what I love about her. She is different and that's what makes her stand out in the crowd. And as much as I have enjoyed this photoshoot with my "Evil Queen" I hope that you did too.

John Warren Photography at Dana Point Yacht Club

Early this year, we were given the opportunity to do a photo shoot at one of the premier yacht clubs here in Orange County, the Dana Point Yacht Club. We worked with their wedding coordinator, none other than Danielle Hunt. Danielle and her staff were uber accommodating, me and the team who made this photo shoot happen had a blast.

Dana Point has one of the most beautiful sunsets. As the sunray touches the ocean, the waters just emits a very beautiful blue glow that just sparkles. Truly, if you want a beach wedding, or just a place near the beach, Dana Point Yacht Club is one of the places to check out.

With everything being said, let me thank the following people for making this photo shoot happen:

Photographer: Yours truly John Warren Photography

Videographer: Boffo Video

Hair and Make up: Trang Do

Wedding Dress: Aria

Flowers and Cake: Elegant and Modern Design,LLC

Models: Averie Rodriguez and Tyler Gregory

And here are the photos:

Everything turned out beautiful! The team had a blast and we were able to pull of it together. So in the future, if you are checking out vendors who can cover weddings and events over the Yacht Club, you know who to call.
