A Spectacular Winter Celebration | Nixon Library Wedding

Nixon Library Wedding | Yorba Linda

Alison & David’s wedding at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda was nothing short of spectacular. You can see their engagement images by right here. I love photographing weddings at the Nixon Library and Birth Place in Yorba Linda. Their wedding was an elegant affair with three hundred guests. Alison and David took their vows in San Francisco Solano Catholic Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, same place that she attended catholic school and church as a child.

Gorgeous Details @ The Nixon Library Wedding

Alison’s mother double as the coordinator, which is no small feat when your having a wedding for three hundred. She used to be in the flower business and had a whole crew tending to the wedding day details.nixon library wedding photogapher

Leaves of white chocolate encircle the cake held together by crimson ribbon and decorated with fresh raspberries. Guest favors featured Godiva chocolates.

Lisa & Earl Wanted to Throw a Big Party for their Close Friends & Family

Lisa & Earl are a bit avante guard. They modernized the idea of a traditional wedding. No grand entrance, not first or father daughter, mother son dances, not garter toss, not even a wedding cake. Earl danced down the isle and then he and his guys broke out into an acappella gospel song.

Just a Simple Sunday Wedding Sunday Brunch

Lisa and Earl just wanted to have a big weekend brunch party with their close friends and family and they pulled it off gracefully. Having a non-traditional wedding gave them some options typically not available to a formal affair. A the top of their agenda was photography that was a bit different and non-traditional.

  1. Lisa & Earl had over an hour of quality time to for their “couples” photography.
  2. There was over an hour to photograph Lisa, Earl and their kids.
  3. Plenty of time to mingle with friends and family.
  4. Absolutely no set agenda to follow.

Off to the images…….

Lisa’s father is a third generation stone mason and part American Indian. I took a picture of the wall where Lisa & Earl were wed and used it as a texture in some of the photographs that follow including the one below of Lisa’s dad.The guys singing acappella gospel.Just having some fun blowing bubbles.Lisa’s daughter was having a moment. Not sure what it was but something emotional.Lisa’s father and I were talking about these stone buildings and he told me that they were warehouses built around the turn of the century and were due to be razed soon. A perfect backdrop for their portrait session.I love the simple lines of Lisa’s dress and the way the fabric hugs her body. Lisa was super proud of her physique and wanted to show it off. Her house is on an acre plus and she’d been raking lots of leaves and developed some sexy lats and lots of arm muscles too.Below: One of my favorite images from the day.

Newport Beach | Newborn & Family Portrait Photographer

It was so cool running into Erin at my son’s school where she is Vice Principal. The world truly is a small place. I photographed Erin & Travis’s wedding on 04.14.07 at Dana Point’s Ocean Institute. She was a gorgeous bride then and a beautiful wife and mom now. When I saw Erin she was way pregnant and due to give birth soon to her second child. Xavier is their first boy. His sister Lillian is two and half years old. She’ll make an appearance on the blog in the near future.

Gorgeous Newborn Portraits

I was due to photograph gorgeous newborn baby Xavier last week when I got back from our trip to Carmel By the Sea. A monster post is coming up from that trip. But I had to postpone his shoot from last week to this week because I had a brain orgasm and needed to buy some new newborn photographic props from his shoot. Since I just photographed Xavier’s session yesterday at 12 noon and automatically fell in love with his good looks, I just couldn’t wait to post his portraits.

Orange County | Equestrian Photography

On a fairly warm Southern California Monday, I headed down Newport Boulevard to Orange. Orange has a bad rep. Really I think it is only know for downtown Orange which is undergoing a revitalization. New restaurants and high end shops are popping up around the Orange Circle. If you haven’t been in a while its worth the go. The suburban side of Orange does not disappoint. It’s lush with some gorgeous sprawling homes and some very posh gated communities. And lots of folks have horse stables right on their properties.

As I rolled up to Arthur’s place in Orange I was a bit nervous but certain of my skill set. I’ve always wanted to do Equestrian photography but hadn’t had the opportunity before. I parked my car and walked down the dusty trail passing by the coral and headed towards the barns. Thirteen year old Sabrina was talking with her friend Kevin and she was prepping Andy. Two things immediately struck me when when I met Sabrina: Her blue eyes and the cute dimple in her chin. I was jazzed that she chose a lovely blue plaid shirt that accented her eyes for her shoot. She looked just perfect.

Andy the Quarter Horse

Her dad Arthur and her both have horses on their property and enjoy riding when ever they get a chance. Andy is a much loved, gorgeous Quarter Horse with a Rhone coat. Rhone is a reddish color with flecks of white hair that accent his coat. The American Quarter Horse is an American breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. Sabrina loves barrel racing and just recently completed an intense seminar with Charmayne James (11 time barrel racing champion) to better her barrel racing skills. I got to pet Andy and feed him some carrots. Arthur is a kind spirited man. After their session he invited our daughter Claire to spend the day with Sabrina. Claire is super excited for the opportunity to meet Sabrina, learn to ride and help brush, wash and clean Andy.

P .S. I have a few quirks. But this may be one of the strangest ones I have. In the right setting I like the earthy smell of horse manure. In moderation. It just reminds me of nature and the outdoors.
