calla lily teardrop bouquet: Here are only some tips that I did that may help you have a beautiful wedding, but still have money inside the bank in the event the day is done. Hold sides of mesh material and still have another person put a silk calla lily in the mesh material. Rose arrangements are versatile, because you can make them more or less formal with the addition of accent elements. When you see a puppy running around using a mouthful of leaves, take them of and focus on discipline. Feed your peace lily once per month during the growing season with water-soluble houseplant fertilizer.

Yesterday Ericka and Stephen married in San Dimas. It was a gorgeous wedding. I have known Ericka since high school and am so happy she found Stephen. They are so perfect for each other. The wedding was held at Holy Name of Mary church in San Dimas and the reception was at San Dimas Canyon Golf Course.

Take a look at some of the photos and leave them some love <3

Congratulations again Mr. & Mrs. Vargas!

Brandi Lyn: Beautiful work!! This looks like a wonderful wedding. And I love that cake!

ilse rodriguez: you did such an outstanding job, thank you so much!

ig: I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Jason is one of my husband’s oldest friends, they met in third grade. It was such an honor to document the wedding of him and his beautiful wife, Amy, last weekend at Lake Casitas. I could not have asked for a more beautiful setting!
Jason and Amy are big disc golf fanatics, and discovered their venue site while playing a game there, how sweet!

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day. Congratulations Jason and Amy, your day was perfect!

ig: great issues altogether, you simply received a brand new reader. What may you suggest in regards to your submit that you made a few days ago? Any sure?

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of P&R before Christmas. They were SUCH a sweet couple and so obviously very much in love. P flew in the night before their wedding from VA on a 10 day leave from the service.

It rained all day long on their wedding day, but luckily cleared up for just a few minutes when we ventured out to downtown Whittier to take some pictures of them before the ceremony.

Here are a few favorites from the day.

I get e-mails often asking technical questions about my photography. I do not claim to be a guru on any subject, but if I can help out a couple people, I will consider it a success!

I don’t always have time to give well thought out answers via e-mail, so I am opening up this blog to questions. Shoot me an e-mail if you have a question (from camera settings to lighting to posing,etc..) and I will answer it on the blog sometime next week or so. I will not answer business related questions, so please do not ask. :)

ig: I have read so many posts concerning the blogger lovers but this piece of writing is genuinely a nice piece of writing, keep it up.

I love doing sessions with friends because I never really feel like I am working. Jenn and Dave were no exception. They are expecting their first baby (girl!) next month, so we ventured out for some maternity portraits to document this exciting time for them.

Can I say that Jenn looks amazing! I have serious “bump” envy over here. She is absolutely glowing.

Anyways, on to the pictures! Jenn and Dave, enjoy your sneak peek!
