Romantic Backyard Wedding in Santa Clarita of Maria & Lalo

We have known Maria & Lalo for quite a while.  They  first met us at their cousin’s wedding we photographed several years ago.  Their wedding was originally scheduled for last June, but Maria’s deployment to Iraq forced them to push the wedding ahead for a year.  Lalo is a Marina recruiter and Maria is in the U.S. Army.  Their adorable daughter Isabella is a student.  Maria’s cousins graciously offered their beautiful Santa Clarita hilltop home for the intimate ceremony and fun filled reception.  Isabella was a very important participant in the planning and execution of this perfect day.  And yes, Lalo’s tears were real when he saw his beautiful bride.  We were proud to share this amazing day with this special couple and their family.

New Composites Displayed at the Bellisima Bride Bridal Show at the Hyatt Regency Valencia on August 7, 2011

It has been a busy few weeks getting ready for the Bellisima Bride Bridal Show at the Hyatt Regency last Sunday.  It was a great show, with lots of brides searching out the perfect vendors for their weddings.  One of the new things we previewed at the show was a new format composite on metallic paper as well as a new magazine style album on metallic paper with a full wraparound cover.  We were able to utilize our dynamic new watermark that David Soltes of  Ten20 Creative Marketing designed for us.  Thanks again for your help…as always your work is awesome.

Jennifer & Phillip’s Wedding at the Airtel Plaza is a Family Affair

Jennifer & Phillip’s wedding at the Airtel Plaza in Van Nuys was all about family and romance.  When we first entered the bride’s hotel room to do our prep shots we were taken aback by Jennifer’s twin sister- after doing a double take and reassuring ourselves that we weren’t having double vision- the excitement began.  Jennifer & Phillip’s children was prominent participants in the day and we had a great time capturing them.  From the sheer joy of being allowed to wear lip gloss of their young daughter, to their son’s sense of responsibility for taking as many photos as he could with the cell phone given to him for such purpose (check out the one he was snapping in the middle of the ceremony) to all special shots of the kid’s during the day- we totally enjoyed them.

The Airtel’s Midway Garden looked beautiful underneath the puffy clouds, and although it got a little chilly and windy after the ceremony, we were glad the rain held off long enough for this gang to get married.  The lighting in the Gulfstream Ballroom was amazing and we must say- we have never seen this venue look better.  Jennifer & Phillip and family- all of your hard work and attention to detail really made your wedding very special and we felt privileged to share the day with you.  It was great to see your dad the photographer again after more than 20 years as well.

Enjoy your family- we certainly did!
