Thaesha’s tattoo says “The Beauty in Everything”, and this saying truly encapsulated Thaesha and Sam’s entire wedding day. From Thaesha’s beautiful smile and priceless expressions, to the fabulous setting and stunning flowers from Charmaine, to the way Sam’s face lit up when his bride was in view, romance and beauty were the words of the day.
The romance and love shared by this sweet couple are evident in every photograph. Their wedding was the ultimate expression of beauty and love.
It was our pleasure to have worked with them and helped refer so many of the Santa Clarita Valley’s premier vendors to help make their day so special.
We know these two and their families will share a beautiful future.

Beach weddings are always special, but Tina & Mike’s wedding was extra special. There was no traditional bridal party: Tina’s son, Jacob, and her niece and nephew were the only attendants. Tina & Mike thought of every way to include Jacob in the ceremony and reception events. He even got to play DJ at the reception.
Tina’s planning and attention to detail was amazing. She thought of everything. The reverend who married them had married her sister and brother-in-law some years before, so there was a great rapport and family feeling about the ceremony.

There are so many beautiful locations in the Los Angeles area for weddings. We were just thrilled to photograph Kelly and Zach’s rustic wedding at McCormick Home Ranch.
The stunning royal blue and coral color combination, along with the classic red MG roadster, really popped against all the greenery and the beautiful garden setting.
Kelly and Zach met in their church’s singles group. Pastor Todd really added personal touches to their garden ceremony, which included sharing Communion with the newlyweds.

What are the odds that two people could meet online, and not find out until their first date that they are both nurses working at the SAME hospital?! Pretty slim, I would think. But Megan and Mark did it, and when it came time for their wedding it was a prescription for fun…and lots of it! There was so many custom touches that really showed off their unique personalities- from the custom cuff links that were Megan’s special gift to her groom, to the pharmacy inspired seating cards and table names- complete with the head table named-what else- Viagra! Their adorable daughter played a prominent role…the three of them got married! Her expressions are just priceless.
The combination of the warm night air, cute, personalized touches and their warm, friendly upbeat personalities, made for some great shots! Thank you Megan & Mark for being so much fun and so willing to try ham it up for the camera, and really be yourselves!
We were very fortunate to work with many of the premier wedding and event vendors in the Santa Clarita Valley, who also happen to be our friends…it takes a village…and we had one! Thank you to:

The Tuxedo Revue for the gentlemen’s attire
Charmaine’s Bouquet Canyon Florist for the beautiful flowers to enhance Megan’s vision for the day

Together we shared in Megan & Mark’s Happily Ever After!
When Al and his fiancé, Jennifer, came in to meet with us, we knew we would have fun with this couple. We have known Al since he was in elementary school with our son. Al and Jennifer too, go far back… They started as neighbors, then friends, and eventually that turned into a romance. Their love story started right here, in Newhall. Nine and a half years of dating, and Al finally popped the question in Big Bear while snowboarding.
When it came time to do their engagement photos, they had tons of ideas. The first part of their session was at their condo with their cute little Yorkie, Ace. Jen is quite the baker so they wanted to incorporate her love for baking and Al’s enthusiasm for her sweets into their pictures. I don’t think Al minded eating the cupcakes for multiple shots! The next stop was at TPC to take some photos near the lake and catch their love for country by rocking some cowboy boots and hats. We then moved onto their old stomping grounds: Hart High School. Here we caught them kissing in the bleachers, tossing a softball on the field, and throwing around a football. We were able to get to know them even better and capture a lot of their personalities in these photos! We couldn’t wait to hang out with them again at their wedding.
When their wedding day arrived, we knew exactly how to get these two smiling for the camera. The bride and groom got ready at Hyatt Westlake where we captured some great getting ready shots and special moments, especially the first look with Jen and her dad. It was a priceless moment. Thanks to the Friday night traffic on the 101, we risked losing precious shooting time, so I took the bride, her matron of honor and maid of honor in my car so we can get all the pictures we would need, and not have to wait for the limo to make the round trip back after dropping off the guys. Luckily my cooler was loaded with cold water and snacks for everyone. Once we arrived at Spanish Hills Country Club, we went right into their moment to remember. It was such a touching exchange for these two. These intimate moments for a couple are a memory to be cherished forever, and we take that very seriously. As we shot the ceremony and moved into the reception, there wasn’t a detail left undone. There were personal touches everywhere. With the intimate group they had, you could see all the love for one another throughout the room. Everyone knew each other and had a great time. This was one group that sure knew how to party! We were so happy to be a part of this beautiful day and go home with a yummy cookie for the drive home.
Thank you so much Jen & Al for sharing your day with us, and for all the nice posts on Facebook. We love your album too…that’s why it became a sample book at the studio.
