Michael + Tracie | Engaged

At a young age, Tracie knew that she had a passion for music. Her passion was so intense that she began to learn how to play several instruments with ease. As she grew up she realized that her music talents were very much above average. Tracie decided to major in music in college. While in College she realized that she wanted share her gift with as many people a she could. One way was to become a music teacher to impact as many young lives as she can.

Michael joined the Marines at a young age. Soon after boot camp Michael realized how much he loved serving his country. During his long stent serving our country Michael received his degree in counseling and what better way to help people than to counsel High School Teens.

Life has funny ways of placing people in different places at different times. Michael & Tracie met on the High School campus where they both impact young lives. Michael one of the schools counselors & Tracie the music teacher.

I have to give it to these two. They probably have to be one of my most passionate clients this year. They couldn't keep their hands to themselves. I guess you can say Michael is" Hot for teacher"

Michael & Tracie will be tying the knot on August 17th 2008. Their Wedding will be held at beautiful Balboa Park in San Diego. I can't wait to shoot your wedding you guys. We're gonna have a blast!

Los Angeles Ca. Mormon Temple Wedding

Busy weekend!  After the shoot at the Ritz Carlton, Dana Point , I shot up to Los Angeles to Photograph the wedding of David & Jessica. David and Jessica said their vows in the Los Angeles Mormon Temple. While exiting the Temple they were greeted by plenty of cheers and applause from family and friends.  After a brief family formal session, we set out for a few pre determined downtown locations for their romantic photo session. As you can see, we did some of their Wedding Photos at Union Train Station.
Here are some of my favorites of the day.   

Second shooter for Greg Bumatay .

The Ritz Carlton, Dana Point | Weddings

On Saturday we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Mara &  Ashley for their Florist,  Shower Me Flowers.   Yeah Thats right, their florist hired me to photograph their flowers for a new advertising campaign that she is embarking. 

Although the day was a scorcher,  the wedding went on without a hitch.  Thanks to the amazing coordination of Wendy Dahl of  The Dahl Wedding Company.  With layers of rose pedals lining the aisle and flower arrangements floating in the courtyard water fountain, it's no wonder that Ashley was amazed with the transformation of the ceremony and reception areas.  If you are interested in having your wedding at the Ritz Carlton, Dana Point feel free to contact Mr. Milko Rivera Email: milko.rivera@ritzcarlton.com.

Also a special shout out to some of the other venders at the wedding.  DJ Bill Franks of Elite Stage & Lighting. The ceremony music: Ina Veli email: ina_v19@hotmail.com.  These guys were awesome.  

Betina, thanks for having me there.  As always it was a blast hanging out with you.   

Anthony + Jessica : Engaged

It's late in the school year, the excitement is the air is mainly about the upcoming talent show. Little did Anthony know that he was about to notice his future wife for the first time. 

During Anthony's senior year of high school, (Jessica's Junior Year) he was approached by a good friend to record his act for the upcoming talent show.  Being the nice guy Anthony is he was down to help his friend out.  While getting his gear ready to record,  he noticed the next act coming on stage. 

Onto the stage came this little girl wearing her school girl uniform carrying a base guitar bigger than she was.  She sits down and the lights come on.  There was Jessica Playing her rendition of  "Brick house"  on her base guitar.  Powg---powg-powg-powg---powg---powg ! "She's A Briiick      Hooouse,  she's mighty  mighty....."  Little did Anthony know she was going to be his brick house!  
Yesterday we went out to photograph their engagement session in Orange County and we had such a great time.  Anthony & Jessica will be tying the knot in beautiful Orange County, Ca. on September 20, 2008.  Congrats you two!
