Karina & Omar // Santa Ana | Costa Mesa Wedding

Sorry for the delays, but I finally get to share the photographs from Karina & Omar’s wedding.  If you read my previous post you know how much I love wedding band shots that I figured I would share one more.

I had a great time photographing their wedding and I want to thank my team for helping me out through the wedding. Karina, Omar, and their bridal party were a blast to work with, their joy & easygoing attitude help make the fourteen hour wedding day go by like a breeze.  Thank you guys for letting me be apart of your special day.


P.S. – Special thanks to my assistant Hector, he is the best assistant a photographer could have. His friendship & hard work during this wedding were priceless. Thanks for having my back.   :)

The Details // Wedding Bands

I love taking photographs of the wedding bands. Each wedding I’ve been apart of  is so unique and special and it’s apparent in the photos of the wedding bands. The wedding bands are as one-of-a-kind and individualistic as the bride & groom.

I’ve never really understood when people would tell me how they found the perfect rings and how long it took them to find them. I just figured you go to the jewelry store and pick one. It wasn’t until I started my wedding photography business that it finally made sense. I get it. These  bands are a symbol of our love and commitment.  The key word for me being “our” because that is what makes it exclusive compare to love & commitment of others.

Now when I glance at the photo above of Karina & Omar’s wedding bands I  think immediately of their personality and their love for each other. It happens now in any ring photo I’ve shot. I immediate think of the bride & groom and how amazing they are.

Jocelyn & Ryan // Jones Victorian Estate Wedding

I am so happy that I finally get to share all the terrific photographs from Jocelyn and Ryan’s spectacular wedding. If you saw the preview post, you know how much Jocelyn, Ryan, friends, and family love to have fun and trust me, it was contagious. I had to contain myself from getting on the dance floor and throwing down some of my own dance moves. LOL. Who could resist when playing Black Eyed Peas, Michael Jackson & Billy Idol?  I was able to keep my composure as I helped Ernie capture  the memories to this amazing wedding at The Jones Victorian Estate.

Jocelyn & Ryan were lovely to work with, their love and joy is natural and amazing that it is a constant reminder  how bless I am in having the opportunity to work with incredible couples. I’ve had such dynamic relationships with some of the best couples that makes me really love my job. Wedding after wedding I am left in awed and it always leaves a lingering thought of marriage  in my future. ;-)

I am so thankful again for my clients, they always seem to be the embodiment of love & commitment.


P.S. – I want take the time to say Happy Mother’s Day! I want to thank all the wonderful strong mothers in our lives that made each day go by a little happier with their love. Their endless love is priceless and always under-appreciated. I am thankful for my mom, I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her love & guidance. Thanks MOM!!! :)
