Marcy & Pablo // Wedding Album

I love my new wedding album company Forbeyon. This is the gorgeous album I got for a Marcy & Pablo’s Wedding.  I love the quality and craftsmanship. All albums are hand made in USA using top quality products like leather imported from Italy.

I love everything about them. The binding is top notch and rock solid. I’ve noticed in the past from other sub par companies that the first thing to fall apart is the binding . The binding feels great, tight, strong and the archival board where the images are mounted is thick & substantial but not super thick like a novelty children book.  They use UV coated Kodak Endura paper so images will last and you will be able to share your amazing wedding to future generations.  I love the true panoramic flush mount of the pages so you don’t get the horrible crease down the middle with other companies.  The metal cameo on the front is just amazing, they actually print a photo on a thin piece of metal.

I think the album really comes together with the small little details that help make the album unique and special just like the wedding day. The imprinting on the spine and the red satin weave down the middle really help add a little extra that the bride and groom really enjoyed.

Karina & Omar // Newport Beach | CDM Engagement

I’ve known Karina since freshmen year of High School and I remember we met in English class and we continue our friendship over the years. After high school I would meet up with Karina and Marisol (Karina’s Maid of Honor) at Starbucks and we would catch up and talk how our lives were going. Years pass and slowly I lost contact with her but faith would have our paths cross again, and to my suprise it would also bring her engagement to Omar.I was happy  that Karina & Omar choose me as their photographer to capture their special day. I was honored Karina picked me since I knew Karina has a love & appreciation of photography since we did take Photography class with Mr. Farnsworth together in High School. :)

Over the weekend I met up with Karina & Omar at Newport Beach Backbay and we shot their beautiful engagement session. It was beautiful day and lighting couldn’t be any better, especially since the last two weeks there has been nothing but Spring gloom.

After Backbay we headed down to Corona Del Mar to enjoy the sunset and finish up the shoot.

Marcy & Pablo // Santa Ana|Tustin|SJC Mission Wedding

All through out 2009, Pablo would sent me comments and compliments and that he liked my photography. I never took him too serious, I just figured he was being nice & supportive. I had no clue he was even engaged. It wasn’t until I got message that he wanted to schedule an appointment to inquire my services for 2010. Wow.I got together with Marcy & Pablo, and knew they were great couple and it would be my pleasure to photograph their wedding. Marcy had these great imagination and vision of how she wanted her wedding and how important the photography was to her. A photographer’s dream!

The wedding day was not without bumps along the road that include four location changes, timing miscues, and not to mention the rainstorm that lasted all day long. But no matter what, Marcy & Pablo took in stride and I was there right along for the ride. As the photographer, I’ve experienced it all and I adapt and keep on  moving forward. The Ceremony was held at the beautiful Waverley Chapel in Santa Ana. The Chapel offer a beautiful intimate backdrop for a wonderful ceremony, we were lucky the rain held off enough for portraits. After the ceremony we drove south on the 5-freeway down to Mission San Juan Capistrano and whole time I wonder if the rain would stop for portraits. The weather graced us with only minutes to take some gorgeous portraits before everyone had to run back into the limo or we risked being soaked. Back on the 5-freeway to our final destination, the Tustin Center for the Reception.  I’m sure the bridal party was ready for a stiff drink after our long day of trying to guess the weather. It was a wonderful wedding  and I’m happy I was able to capture the memories of two wonderful people. I wish  Marcy & Pablo many years of wedding bliss.
