Mauricio & Tona

I met Mauricio & Tona through Tona’s cousin Lisa, who's wedding I shot last year.
As a kid, Tona and her family made many summer trips to disneyland. So it was very fitting for them to have a Disney theme wedding. So off we were to Downtown Disney for their engagement Session.
As we walked through Downtown Disney, they spottted a sunglasses shop. They began to goof around by trying on different types of glasses. Mauricio grabbed a pair that took me back to the show “Chips”. when he put them on I thought I was standing in front of “Frank Poncharelo”. I almost asked him for an Autograph.
Mauricio & Tona Will be tying the knot on May 24, 2008 at the Crystal Cathedral in Orange Ca.
Check out their Slideshow.

Doug & Delaney

Venue: Wiens Family Cellars
Coordinator: Amy fitzpatrick
Florist: Shower Me Flowers

On October 6, 2007, My Friend Melissa & I had the pleasure of photographing Doug and Delaney's wedding. The Wedding was held at the beautiful Wien's Family Cellars in Temecula, So Cal's Wine country. We could not of asked for a more beautiful day. With blue skies and rows of grapevines as a backdrop, It’s no wonder why Doug and Delaney chose Wiens Family Cellars as their Wedding Venue.
The venue was showered by flowers and details galore. More importantly Delaney was as gorgeous as ever! Then there was Doug looking debonair as always.
The love between these two really showed during their romantic session while alone in the Barrel Room. There is so much to say about Doug and Delaney in that both families are equally amazing. When Delaney’s grandparents dedicated the bottle of wine to them, Which was purchased the day that Delaney was born, I thought for sure I was going to loose it.
Check out their Slideshow. I want to extend my humble Thank You’s to the Greeno and Forsythe Families. Especially Doug & Delaney for making me a part of their beautiful wedding day!

Guest Speaker at Cypress College

About 3-4 months ago I was approached by a good friend of mine to be a guest speaker for his Wedding Photography class at Cypress College. Well, that day was last night. It was great experience! Even though I have taught basic photo classes before, this was different. These students knew what they were doing! They all asked great questions. Mostly business questions. I wanted to thank Greg Bumatay for having me as one of his guest speakers. I had a blast! Thanks Greg! Here are a few images that greg was able snap for me while speaking.

Ahhhh, The New Blog, A Face Lift

Dr 91773 has struck again. This time it was my blog. He gave it a beautiful, clean Face lift. So today I received an email from my buddy Rudy Arpia (Dr 91773) stating that my new blog is ready to roll! I'm Super excited I have a ton of stuff to blog so be sure to keep checking in.
I just want to thank Rudy so for giving my blog that much needed face lift. He was super easy to work with. He listened to all my requests and created this clean look for my blog that matched my branding style from my original website. Best of all, now the images are all nice and large. Which was the main reason for getting the face lift.
If you are looking to customize your blog, and take advantage of posting larger images, don't hesitate to contact Rudy. Be sure to check out their website provisage.com
