Angel & Helen - OC Wedding

Whew, it was a hot outside (95+ with humidity), but it didn't stop Angel & Helen from enjoying every bit of their wedding day even in full wedding attire, and making sure he dipped Helen a half dozen times throughout the day.  Angel was the happiest guy in the world the entire day, especially after reacting to his first look at his gorgeous bride Helen (photos below).  I loved Angel's intense passion and love for his bride. He even wrote his love for Helen on his car windows for the world to see.🚘💜 You know a guy is in love when he can do that. 

Scripture of the day:
"It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, 
and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain"

Every wedding I mix it up with a few rolls of 35mm black and white film and also some infrared film. Check out the black and white photos taken on the @pentaxk1000_ 50mm f2.0.  Nothing better than a classic black and white exposure on your wedding day!

Thanks again Angel and Helen for the beautiful moments!  It was awesome to be there!  And thank you to my amazing 2nd shooter Hania Hussein (@haniahusseinphotography).

Enjoy the photos and '¡Muchos Besos!'

Lady in Red - Pelican Hill Birthday Shoot

I've been giddy with anticipation to share these stunning photos from my photoshoot with the gorgeous @kkimthai 

Kim contacted me a few weeks ago about doing this photoshoot for her birthday at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach. I didn't know her at the time but after watching a few of her YouTube videos (amazing beauty YouTube channel btw) I felt like we were going to have a blast. She was super excited for the looks and the dresses and the location and for my photography style (that always makes my day and is a good sign!). I know we would only have two hours allotted to us so I had to be on my A game. With photoshoots like this, preparation is key. I spent at least a few hours of prep work with color wheels, location scouting, lens choice, lighting, sun charts, etc in order to hit a grand slam for her birthday. Well I'm excited to say I think we all are loving the photos. A huge thanks to my amazing assistant @haniahusseinphotography for her encouragement and keen eye. Shoutout to Kim's sauve hair stylist @tonywonderhandsss and her beautiful and bubbly best friend Michelle for doing a flawless job on makeup. Thank you to our friend Devon and @pelicanhillresort for hosting us. And thank you Kim for having me be your Photograher. Can't wait to work with you again! 

Happy birthday Kim!
