Raul & Keighty: ENGAGED!!

We were so glad that Keighty and Raul came out from Chicago for their engagement session. I worked with Raul at Renaissance Bistro and I was so excited to see him again and hear about his adventures in Chicago and the life he's building with his bride to be. We woke early on a Sunday and wandered around downtown Fullerton together while waking up and sharing laughs. Here's the results of our wandering... enjoy!

Sometimes we get to capture really amazing once in a lifetime moments with our fantastic clients! Such as this moment were Keighty realized her first gray hair!!! (Keighty please don't hate me I thought this was hilarious!) And now it's out and you're gray free! :)


One of my dear friends from junior high made me the most beautiful and unique earrings and I had to share them. Marie has been a creator since I can remember and she has brilliant ideas. Her site VenusFlyTrap shows of her spring/summer 09 collection. Her lovely pieces can also be found HERE at her etsy page. And last but not least her brand new fall/winter 09 collection can be viewed on VenusFlyTrap's facebook page. As of now my earrings are a funky new creation and I'm so proud to sport them and support my girl Marie. Stop by and show her some love!

A few months ago Dan of Dan Stewart Photography contacted me about a honeymoon surprise for his bride to be Liz. I gladly obliged and we set a date while they were out in California for the second half of their honeymoon. Dan & Liz live and work in Michigan and they came out here to visit sunny southern California. We hung out in Newport Beach and Balboa and captured some of the Dan and Liz spark! I have to say I'm a bit jealous, it's not easy as a photographer to be a model in front of the camera and they worked it out! I also thought Dan was such a sweety because he kept the whole thing a surprise. As photographers sometimes we forget to document our own lives in the same fashion we may for clients. Liz had lamented that they didn't have fun photos of them and Dan was listening! He even took her out to buy a sweet new outfit and super sassy shoes for our shoot.

Dan & Liz it was so great to meet you! We had so much fun hanging out with the two of you and we can't wait to do it again! Please come back and visit!!

p.s. this is what newlywed love looks like. they NEVER stopped touching and kissing. I LOVE it!

Liz is gorgeous!!

When life hands you lemons (your flash doesn't go off) make lemonade (go nuts!)
