Jen & Sean are married! 9.14.13 {San Diego Wedding Photographer}

This is a special sneak peek for my friends Jen and Sean.  I haven’t been posting any sneak peeks for a while now, because I thought I would be updating my website and blog this year.  So I was going to save all of the new posts for after it was revamped.  It’s proven to be quite busy for me this year though, so the updates are on hold for now!  However, this is a special wedding for me.  So I have to share!

Jen is a friend from – oh my gosh – junior high school?  We go way back!  Jen and Sean met in high school when they both worked at Taco Bell.  In one of the speeches it was even mentioned that Sean had moved her (or had her moved) to cashier because “she was hot”. Sparks were flying back then even!  LOL  They became good friends and then finished high school going their separate ways.

A couple years ago we had a high school reunion in Vegas where I caught up with Jen, and Sean “happened to be there” (keep in mind that Sean was from our rival school – he SO crashed our reunion ;) )   They were able to rekindle those sparks, and Sean finally decided to pursue the hot girl!  Ever since, they’ve been together and if you are a friend of either of them on Facebook you can see how much they enjoy each other and how much their love for each other has developed.

When Jen asked if I could photograph their wedding I was over the moon! A private orchard in our hometown, gorgeous and fun couple, with Jen’s stylish eye? Yes, please!

As expected, it was GORGEOUS!  I’ll save details about the wedding for later, but for now . . . here are a few image that I absolutely love.  I love the way Sean looked at Jennifer even though I could tell she was concentrating on being in front of the camera.  I loved the huge smiles on their faces coming down the aisle after they were pronounced man and wife.  I loved the orchard and the Camarillo mountains in the background . . .  I hope you love these as much as I do!

Chantung 1st birthday

Another little monkey just turned 1 this month!  You might recognize this family from their gorgeous wedding and newborn images that I have done in the past years.  I love photographing couples’ weddings and then watching their family start and grow!

We had another ridiculously fun and lovely session with this little cherub with the many faces.  I just love love love all of her expressions!  Alana had so much fun playing with rocks, running around the park, and smashing her cupcake for us!  Dad pulled out his smart phone halfway through the session to show us how Alana LOVES to rock out to her favorite song “What I am” by Will I Am – Sesame Street (click the link! It is so catchy!). And how adorable is that pink teddy bear she was dancing with?

Happy First Birthday Alana!


What a fun, lively family this is!  Mom called me letting me know she needed a session right away because they were moving (after the session) to Oregon!  They made the big move to be closer to family, and although they said they would miss the beach I’m sure these boys are going to keep their relatives in stitches!  I’ve been getting a lot of monkeys lately, and these two were no exception :)

We did a lot of running around, jumping, climbing, splashing, and smiling with this session.  Thank you Klein family for the fun session! I really enjoyed meeting your two little monkeys and hope your move went well.  Enjoy!

Vanetsky Family | San Diego Portrait Photographer

Meet the Vanetskys!

Marsha is a dear friend of mine from our biotech days at Amgen, and though we are practically neighbors in San Diego, I still don’t see her and her husband that often because of all their exotic traveling.We set out for a local golf course when her whole family was in town, and had a fun time driving golf carts around from spot to spot that evening!

I have photographed her grandson Sam, when I first started my business, as a 2-year-old who ran around a playground dodging eye contact. Now he is a grown up pro in front of the camera, and I almost didn’t recognize him! His younger brother, Max, brought back all the memories of that day in the playground, though. His dad had to be on Max chasing duty from the get-go, that little monkey!  With one son’s family from Albuquerque, Marsha’s gracious daughter Aly, and younger brother Jacob keeping us all laughing, I felt totally honored to be covered in Vanetsky charm!

It was such a pleasure meeting the whole clan finally!
