Baby Payten

Posted in Portraits by Holly

Payten is the daughter of some good friends of ours, Amy & Chris (who happen to be one of our past wedding couples).  We were blessed to be able to photograph their little one at only 6 days old.  She was so cuddly in that cocoon!

I adore this shot that Donny got of her eyes.  She looks like she has shining flowers in them!

Hannah and Ryan Engagement

Posted in Engagements by Donny

Hannah & Ryan’s engagement session was a lot of fun!  We took them down to the beach and were able to get some pretty awesome shots of them!  They are quite the adorable couple, don’t you think!!  This first one is one of my favorites because of the sweet tenderness that they showed..

However, we were having a LOT of fun with the sun flare and dramatic lighting!

They were total troopers and had no problem climbing up the rocks to get these dramatic shots!  I think Hannah was a bit scared, but it was so worth it!  :)

Erika and Mike’s Wedding

Posted in Weddings by Holly

Erika & Mike’s wedding was a very special event.  They are one of the nicest couples you will ever meet!  They had spent tons of time and attention to every detail in order to make it just perfect and you could tell!

We started off the day at the Westin in Long Beach for their getting ready shots.  I just loved her bouquet!

I couldn’t help but admire these stunning red shoes as well.  Have I mentioned yet on this blog how much I love colored shoes!!!!

jmw__013

We could have spotted this purse a mile away.  This is the same purse that was used in Jessika & Jeff’s wedding that we shot in 2007.  It was Jessika & Erika’s grandmother’s purse.  To my understanding, all of the female grandkids are planning on using it in their weddings.  Isn’t that awesome!  I wish I had something really gorgeous and special to hand down to my kiddos! …. hmmmm… Donny, I hope you read our blog!!  ;)   hint hint!

I love this shot that Donny got of her dress!

jmw__024

Again, my honey — always looking for cool angles and reflections to add to the composition!

I thought this was funny how Mike had this post-it note on the mirror so that he didn’t forget to bring them!

jmw__061

And the ever so important vows!

jmw__071

Erika & Mike got married at the Ebell Club in Long Beach.  We always love photographing there as it is a beautiful historic venue with so much charm!  Being able to shoot from both the balcony and on the floor is kinda fun too!

Erika & Mike looked adoringly into each other’s eyes the whole time!

Erika’s grandparents read them a special passage during the ceremony!

The flower girl cracked me up the whole time!  She was laying on the ground… then sitting playing with the flowers in her basket… then dancing in the center aisle!  Way too cute!!

jmw__221

I love it when we are able to document these touching moments during the ceremony!!!

jmw__233

For their pics, we went down to the Long Beach Pike area and played on the boardwalk.  The ladies all had a good time!

jmw__303

The guys were pretty fun themselves!
