Aimee and Luis {Married}

Aimee and Luis had their wedding in the middle of December which can be tough to plan because there’s always the threat of rain. This year, however, has been extraodinarily warm and dry and their special day was perfect! I photographed the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready at Hair Addix Salon in Oceanside before we went over to the reception site. They chose a cozy and beautiful historical site, the Rancho Guajome Adobe in Vista, California. There were so many amazing spots to take pictures…it was overwhelming! The standing-room only ceremony was perfect and we did some fun portraits in the old Adobe buildings. The reception took place at a private residence with a big tent setup in the backyard where the newlyweds danced the night away with family and friends with DJ Scotty B pumping out some good music. Here are a few of my favorite photographs of the day:


The Wileys {Family}

This was a very fun shoot! I don’t like photographing family photos where everyone gets in their favorite blue jeans and white t shirt and sits on the beach with a fake smile. Thats just not what a family really is to me. I love being able to capture the natural emotions and interactions that the family members have on a daily basis. And this session was exactly that. A family and lifestyle shoot in one. I met the Wileys in San Juan Capistrano and we cruised around the Los Rio Street Historic┬áDistrict. The place was buzzing with shutter clicks as hordes of photographers roamed through shooting their own engagement/family/whoknowswhat sessions. The last family session I did was this same location so I went to the spots that I liked and explored some new ones. It started to rain on us, which scared all the other photographers away. But not us! We had the place to ourselves and got some fun playful images of this awesome family! Here are some of my favorites:

Herranen Family

I photographed this family down in San Juan Capistrano around the train station. I got to work with some nice soft, hazy light and we stopped by a few different locations getting some formal photographs as well as a lot of fun candids! Here are a few of my favorites from today:
