Melinda and Efren had such a beautiful outside wedding with lots of good food, drinks and  two live bands! It was a total blast!  Melinda looked insanely gorgeous in her gown. She was so over excited to get into it that she screamed of excitement when she saw herself in the mirror all dolled up.  She kept mentioning that her dress and shoes were soooo over her budget but well worth it, and it reminded me of one of my favorite shows "Say Yes To The Dress" on TLC.  I couldn't stop shooting her :) oooooh... and the location was to die for.  This is a long posting because I couldn't narrow down, and they were plenty more.

Robert and I had a blast with tiffany and Julian.  They are so easy going, we talked about anything and everything and laughed the whole time.  We can't wait to shoot their wedding up in Sacramento this upcoming February.

The moment I arrived to this little gem of a place I fell in love with all it's surroundings.  Columbia State Park is one of the last places in California where you can actually pan for gold.  It is such an interesting and historical place.  From the old western downtown to the gold mines to the panning of gold it takes you to a different world that is lost in time.  Rebecca and Jason have a love for the outdoors and the mountains.  Jason knows everything there is to know about surviving in the woods, lucky Rebecca huh!?  If I get lost in the woods I want to be with these guys :)

LAS VEGAS BABY!!  Darrin proposed in the romantic city of Paris, France.  So we were brainstorming of ideas and ways to incorporate Paris and Europe into their session and what better than the beautiful backdrops of Las Vegas.  It was a true blast hanging out with them and shooting in such a cool city.  It was very hot and humid though.  It literally never went down from the 100's and at one point Robert and I glanced at the temperature and it said 117!! AYE YA YAI!  But they were total troopers. We started the morning at 7:00 a.m. at the famous Las Vegas Sign and then drove out to Red Rock for some cool desert shots.  The day ended with some night shots throughout the strip.  For all you slideshow lovers here is a slideshow of their session.

I met Diana and Brian in Half Moon Bay at Malessa and Manuel's wedding.  I was so stoked when they informed me about the location they had chosen for their session.  I loved this place.  They are such a caring couple and I love their little Sebastian as well.  Sebastian is so adorable!  He is such a good dog.  He would even listen to me and Josie, I want a dog like that :)  *oh by the way if anybody has or knows of anybody having puppies let me know.  We are looking for a cute little dog maybe like a yorkie or a shih-tzu or mix with poodle.  Anything in that range, it's for Josie :)

Hello Norma,

Thanks for keeping it fun and full of laughs..Boy was it windy.
Are we the most difficult & camera shy couple you have ever worked with? We definitly are not the most photogenic couple that's for sure..:).. We had a lot of fun & hopefully Josie got a couple of laughs out of seeing Sebastian. as well. Looking forward to the wedding...talk to you soon..
