Wedding at Chapman Chapel and Moonlight with Thuy and Tim

Temperatures reached record lows for Southern California but this couple did not let that keep them from having a great time on their special day.

I love weddings that feature lots of tradition. It is always interesting to see and no matter how many I have done I seem to come out of it learning something new. This wedding featured a traditional Vietnamese ceremony and western ceremony at Chapman Chapel and gave each family a chance to celebrate their own way.

The party started at Moonlight in Westminster with fantastic lighting, decor and food. I am shooting another event at Moonlight this coming week and can’t wait. A fantastic job and very entertaining venue.

Wrapping Up 2011 with a Few Favorite Shots!

As I take a look back at 2011 I am reminded of what an incredible year it has been. Being a wedding photographer you get to meet people from all walks of life. For a day you get to share their friends and family. I have selected a few of my favorite shots to put together this slide show and it has brought back so many fun memories for me. I get the warm and fuzzies! I had a blast doing it and I hope you enjoy it too.

Every New Year I have a few resolutions. This year I have been motivated by a close friend to try a juice fast. I am currently in the midst of it and have to say it is one of my favorite resolutions of years past. If you have chosen to partake in a New Years Resolution I hope you are well on your way to completing it. They have always been a struggle for me. lol

Many of my clients have a resolution of completing their wedding plans. If this sounds familiar I would love to help you complete yours. We have new Photo/Video packages and can recommend many other vendors.

Wedding in Orange with Kristina and Alan

If you have never been there, in the city of Orange there is a fantastic downtown area that has really cool houses and lots of places to go. It has old town America feel to it that is hard to come by nowadays. That is where Kristina and Alan tied the knot for a second time.
