Well, holiday bookings are coming full force now, and I am having SO much fun!
How gorgeous are Lauren and Jenna? I was so excited when I saw them all dressed up am glam for their photo shoot. Lauren and Jenna totally rocked this shoot!
I played with this next shot...kinda rock-star/glam style!!!
Do you have a friend that you have known for almost 30 years? Someone who you may have lost touch with due to busy lives but when you see each other, it's like you never skipped a beat? If you have a friend like that, then you know what I am talking about when you see that person... it's like a rush of adrenaline as you catch up on each other's lives and laugh about old times, bad perms and boyfriends!
That person in my life is my friend Renee. We have been friends since grade school...been through the best and the worst of times. Renee is that friend that I have never skipped a beat with. As we became busy with our lives, families and careers, the days turned into months of losing touch, but when we visit, it's such a familiar feeling, and I just feel so lucky that I have that kind of friendship with Renee!
Anywho, we got to have a little fun with her beautiful little girl, Emma. She might be the cutest little thing, and i just love watching her and seeing her little personality shine through to the camera.
Her daddy better watch out...this one's gonna be dangerous with those big, brown eyes!
Even though this party was two weeks ago, I still wanted to get around to blogging it because it was THE vendor event of the year!
Jim and Amy Harrick are the masterminds behind Ceremony Magazine, and each year they host a huge party for vendors in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. This year it was held at the beautiful Rancho Las Lomas, and it was AMAZING! Not only did we get to sample great food, dance to a LIVE band (Wayne Foster Entertainment...the BEST!), sample delicious cocktails and wine, but we got to visit with LOTS of friends/vendors that we usually do not have time to socialize with while on the job.
Here are some pictures of some of my friends in the industry!
Kary Heimbach, wedding event planner...she's awesome!
No need for introduction...Mr. Joe Photo and myself
Karen French...a photographer that I have always admired and has given me lots of words of wisdom!
Lauren Hillary and me!!!
Stephanie and me (again!!!)
On Wednesday night, I hosted the first ever Claremont Pug (Pictage User Group) at my home in Claremont! I am the group leader, and had such a great time meeting all of the people who attended! I look forward to getting to know all of you who came.
Take care and see you next month!
This picture was taken by Rudy...thanks, Rudy!!!
I have been waiting over a year to shoot this wedding! Pater and Amber have been waiting much longer for this beautiful day to take place. Through being high school sweethearts, going through college, traveling the world and beginning their successful careers together, their dream of being married had finally come true.
It was so evident by the way their family and friends spoke so highly of them that they have something very deep and meaningful. I had such a great day with them and hope that they get a chance to peek at this blog entry while on their honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands!
These are just SOME of my favorites...and I have more to blog of Peter and his boys (STILL editing!)...
