Here comes the bride...

Kym and Johnny flew me down to San Diego to photograph their wedding at an AWESOME venue, Leo Carrillo Rancho in Carlsbad. The place was full of character, color, and texture. Photographers paradise! It is home to families of peacocks who roam the grounds and fly up into the tress. Yeah, fly. I didn't know peacocks could fly. Am I the only one here?! I just assumed they were too big to fly up 30 feet into the air. Anyway, here is a peek at her arrival... more tomorrow!

Mr. & Mrs. Jeffrey Schmidt

Ah. It's over. The aftermath is a harsh letdown. Such a build up... and then it's done. It is so much harder to be a bridesmaid in the wedding then to show up and shoot a wedding. It was hard not to have my camera in my hand. I had to practice mad self-control to not grab my gear. I wish wish wish I could just sit back and photograph this wedding simply for it's beauty and appreciation I have for things through a lens, but I was honored to stand up for them both!! Here area a few I snapped throughout the course of the day. I love Jeff and Erika with all my heart. We have such good times together and I can't wait to watch their family grow. Love, love, love, love you guys. Thanks for having our WHOLE family in your wedding. Muah.

My little beauty... Miss. Isabella the flowergirl:

Meet the ham-it-up-ringbearer, Sir Luke:

The happy couple:

The H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S slide show that revealed Erika's true colors of her youth. For real... I am going to post their slideshow if I can get my hands on it, cuz she was OUT of CONTROL with her cokebottle glasses and braces!!

Ah, good times. Thanks guys for the fun filled night!

New Website

Check out my new website I launched last week!
The link is in the top right corner for future reference,
but for now, click here.

My brother got married last weekend at Silver Creek Country Club. His lovely bride, Erika had a glamorous vintage inspired wedding. It was soooo hard not to keep my camera on me the whole time. I loved the enthusiasm of the photographer, Lucie, she picked out. She was a cute little blond from Europe, who jumped up in down when Erika would show her new details like jewelry and bouquets. I can't wait to see her photos! In the meanwhile, here is a peek at mine.

Jeffrika at Natural Bridges

The love birds get hitched next friday!

Luke came along to see his uncle and soon to be aunt get there engagement shots. He was a little giggling school boy covering his mouth everytime they started kissing. It was halarious!
