              Remember the first time you saw someone you like? When your eyes was just focused to no one but her/him? And your heart started pounding like crazy, your hands getting clammy and all you do is stutter? Yeah, that was how it is for Vic and Jackie on their engagement session. We decided to change things up a little bit for this couple. We have been told that they are very casual and very laid back. So for their engagement session, we visioned it a little bit different than your everyday casual wear. It ended up being very enchanting. To both of you, cheers to all your hard work. I am more than humbled, to be able to photograph your most special day. Though Chicago is a little bit far away, but I hope that California would be closer to home, everytime you come here. Thank you and I can't wait for the big day. To be able to capture those "ahh" moments again.

Elijah + Regina | Married | Falkner Winery Temecula Ca

One night while checking my email, I saw a message from Regina wanting to schedule an online appointment regarding their wedding photography. I never met Elijah but I got Regina's "yes" after a couple of days. These couple had a very lovely wedding at Temecula, surrounded with family and close friends. Elijah's father being the one to officiate their wedding, and Regina's cousins singing in the background, you just feel the love of each other all around. Congratulations to you both! I hope that you're love for each other would grow everyday, stronger, and full of joy.

Kris + Linda | Engaged | Big Bear Lake Ca

When God writes your love story, the unexpected sometimes happens. Who knew that through a mutual friend, these two would meet each other? When Linda saw Kris at a distance, she thought to herself that he is the most handsome guy ever. Who knew that Kris would feel the same way about her? Their friends forced them to dance, and with Kris not being the best dancer, pulled Linda off the side to talk. After a few hours, they exchanged phone numbers. Who knew that it will all lead to this big moment? With God orchestrating everything. To you both, congratulations! I hope that these photos will remind you of how beautiful it was when it first started. And your love for our Mighty Creator will always bring you both together and keep your love stronger everyday.

Eddy and Jesiree found us though Instagram. We met via Skype, and they booked us a few days after. Their wedding was our very first meeting, but it was just perfect. Capturing their wedding day was worth the wait. From the tiniest details, to the wedding up to the ceremony. It felt like we have shared more than a day of our lives together.

Kathleen + Anthony | Married | Nixon Library Yorba Linda, Ca

It is always wonderful to see different cultures coming together to celebrate a very big event. That goes for Kathleen and Anthony. Two different backgrounds with one thing in common- they decided to be a part of each other's lives and spend the rest of it together. It had been a pleasure to be a part of your wedding. Thank you! Learning a little bit about the two of you in a small period of time, I have seen how much love you have for each other. And I hope that these photos will remind you everyday how beautiful your love is and will help you strive to be the perfect fit for each other everyday.

On August of next year, 2 of the most beautiful people I know will get married. And I got the privilege to capture it. My best friend, Erwin and his long time girlfriend Christine. I am more than excited for you guys. Just to be there the very first time when Christine said yes to Erwin to be her girlfriend, to the very big event. Finally, it has come when he finally proposed! To me, this is just not any wedding, but something to look forward to, knowing that I have to bring a lot of napkins to wipe my tears while taking those photos when they both walk down the aisle.

Kyle and Nayeli Are Engaged x Griffith Observatory

Nayeli is from California and Kyle is from Arizona. On the 8th of August, Kyle flew to Los Angeles to shoot their engagement photos. It was one long hike from the parking lot to the Observatory , but these two made it worth it.  On December 2014, both of you will be sharing your vows, I am more than grateful to be a part of your most special day. I hope that when you look back at all these photos, you'd remember how it all started. The sweet sound of each other's voice, while both of you await for that phone call after a long day's work, those butterflies in your stomach as you anticipate to see each other after a long flight and those days when you use to count the days or weeks or even months because you miss each other so much. Always remember how it all began, and keep the love new everyday as it grows deeper and deeper. Congratulation guys! I'll see you both on December!

"Amazing Baby"

Jakob was born two months earlier than expected. Although premature he displayed many characteristics of an older baby. Not only did he breath on his own, he was also able to bottle feed a lot sooner than expected. The nurses called him the “amazing baby” who “acted mature for his age”.  Jakob spent the first month of his life in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) where the parents went to visit him every day at the hospital.
Jakob is now over three months old and every day I am awed by his strength and resilience. He loves to smile and snuggles for hours. He truly is amazing and his entire family loves him and cheers him on.

Carlos + Nicolette's Orange County Wedding

"Nicole was so ready to find the love of her life" we quote from one of her bridesmaids at her wedding. "She was so ready that she would even consult psychics just to find the right one. Then she met him, at a bar. She said his name was Moose!".Carlos and Nicole have been together since highschool and Nicole often tells us that she had dreamt of her wedding since she was young. We are so happy for you both! Blessed with two beautiful boys and a family that absolutely loves you, we hope these photos will always remind you of how it all began and would strive to keep the love alive and fresh everyday.
