Christmas Comes Early

This year I knew I definitely wanted to get some nice photos done for Christmas time!  I called up our amazing birth photographer Jen Wertman and she made it happen!  She had a styled shoot at the beautiful Speakeasy on State in Redlands, CA!  I love how they turned out.  This little guy is growing too fast!

The best part of being a videographer/photographer is getting to capture the best moments of peoples lives.  My friends Adam & Dianna gave me the privilege of capturing their maternity photos.  I can’t wait to meet little Sawyer in just a few weeks!

How He Asked

Last week something AWESOME happened!  One of the proposals I filmed was featured on HowHeAsked.com!  I have followed this site for quite a while and love reading about the adorable proposal stories.  I swear they always leave you crying….

Well last week I submitted Kenny and Michelle’s proposal story (seen here) and they featured it!  Take a look at the link, which includes full details of how it all happened from Michelle’s point of view…

You can also see their video again here!

Gonzalez + Trofeo Family Photos

The Mission San Juan Capistrano is a favorite for the Gonzalez and Trofeo families, so they knew it would be a great spot to take a few family photos!  Joe and Portia have been together since they were 16.  After raising 3 children, some who have gone on to raise families of their own, they felt like it was time to take some photos for themselves.  We also shot a few of Portia’s mom and sister who were a crack up!  These ladies sure know how to have fun.  Thanks for letting me spend some time with your wonderful family!

Mystery Men

A friend of mine was walking into the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. on November 2nd around 12pm when he heard a crowd clapping and he happened to capture this moment.  He didn’t see anyone else taking pictures for them. We were wondering if the magical power of social media could connect these two people with this beautiful moment!  Please share and see if we can find them!  Thanks!

*UPDATE*
Within HOURS of this post, the “Mystery Men” have been found and are beyond excited to have these photos.  Never doubt the power of social media, as well as what you can do for others!  I’m so glad I was able to help put these pieces together  🙂  Congrats AJ and Kevin!
