Weddings

Let’s get this party started! Once Liem and Leila’s was over at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach, it was time to party at their reception at the Devon Estate in Long Beach where you could instantly feel the excitement. We love when a couple is so in love that it comes right through the lens like these shots we took of these two kicking up their heels along with their guests at this local gem of a spot. But before we headed to the reception, we stole the bride and groom away for some fun alone time portraits under the Seal Beach Pier. It’s so important so get these great shots because ultimately they’re the ones that will be hanging on the bride & groom’s wall for years to come! The reception details were right up my alley – simple, rustic, earthy. Their simple two-tiered cake topped with little birds, place cards wrapped with twine, poised on a tiny little logs. The centerpieces were Read More

Weddings

Catching the bride and groom while they’re getting ready for their big day and before they say their vows can be exciting for them and us! In these candid, and very moving photos of Liem and Leila’s wedding day, you can see how much love and happiness they feel for one another through their big smiles. The shots of Leila getting her make-up done and her hair styled are all truly special. We also took a few shots of the bride’s wedding shoes, her mom buttoning up her wedding dress, and a great shot of the back of her dress with its large mauve-colored satin bow that made for a great close-up shot to show is detail.  Not to be out done, we took some photos of the groom as he, too, got ready for his big day many while getting help from his best man. He also looked at ease when he took a quick stroll with his buddies around the grounds, and Read More

Engagements

Thanks to Liem & Leila we can bring you this gorgeous set of images from their Cal State Long Beach Engagement Session at the Japanese Gardens, the Pyramid, & then a lovely beach-side sunset finish. Being teachers, these two wanted to shoot on campus & have the surroundings lend themselves perfectly to the lives they’ve built together. We think the results speak for themselves. The Japanese Gardens are so picturesque. With all the little micro-areas, great foreground elements, and fun reflections & bridges, you just can’t go wrong. And check out those rock star poses with the pyramid backdrop – we absolutely couldn’t resist putting them up there and letting them have fun! Surprisingly enough, there were plenty of great areas all around campus – fun little hallways, classrooms, & fountains – we just had an absolute blast with Liem & Leila! Thank you so much for being part of our family of great couples & wonderful people. We just Read More
