The first time I met Alicia was back in September of 2006. She was the videographer for one of my client's weddings and saw our work on a slideshow we put on display at the reception. She grabbed one of our cards and kept it ever since then. I always get so excited to hear about how our clients find us, this particular situation was flattering since Alicia had kept our card for so long until it was her time to shine with her fiancee Joey. We shot their engagement session at the Irvine Park and I had Jason Roger there by my side to help me out. Introducing Alicia + Joey engaged!

Don't worry Amelia, those wood chips will grow back, but in case you didn't know that...maybe you should've put "no wood chips were harmed in the making of this stellar e-sesh". It is stellar and I'll make fun of anyone who disagrees with me and that statement and I'll tell them that thier fat and can't read good. Lame-O. Obviously the swing set shot was awesometasticnessarificly a great shot. But you already knew that.

I was drawn to Nancy + Edward from day one! They both are such sweet and sincere people and I was ecstatic when they decided to hire us for their wedding day and engagement session! We decided to go to my trusty shooting grounds in Downtown Fullerton (I say trusty because I can always find something new and interesting to work with there). I especially loved the chemistry between Nancy + Edward...this really helps make my job easier. Also, I cannot forget to acknowledge the amazing hair and make-up that was done by Nicole DeAnne!

Introducing the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Edward Kim:








My favorite shot of the day!




Wedding to follow in June!
