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!

SOMEBODY had fun at her session today!! My heart sang when I saw this image :)  More of this session coming soon!


At the Dogwash! {San Marcos Dogtopia}

What a way to cool off!  We just got back from Dogtopia who is holding their 3rd Annual Fundraiser towards Canine Companions for Independance! They are washing dogs until 2pm TODAY! The dog washes are $15 donation and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to CCI.

Stop by to join in on the silent auction and raffle – you can get a sneak peek of the giant dog smiles and goodies available below!   Sorry, I think I went a little overboard on my own dogs getting their baths!  You can see Roca peeking out from her washers near the end (I tried to hide so she wouldn’t bolt out of the tub when I was there), and Oreo stealing the spotlight at the very end!

What fun!!  I knew this would be a great session when I saw these kiddos  jumping up and down on the beach wall waving to me at the start of their session.  (I think dad might have been doing the same-haha!)  My favorite sessions are non traditional. So when they told me that they wanted more candids and a few of the traditional poses thrown in, my heart soared!

Mom mentioned that there is just something about a little girl in a beautful dress on the beach – she was so right!  I think she saw that I was in love with little Jolie dancing around trying not to get her dress wet.

Zane was at the age where certain things were just not cool . . . I think smiling at the camera “might” be one of those things.  But with smart parents like these, they knew Zane . . . they prompted me with his love for soccer, flip flops, and his laid back style that just made HIM cool.

And lovely Erin – she started out posing fiercely for me.  But I think I love her natural poses and reactions to her silly brother even more!

Such a warm and friendly family!! I had a great time meeting all of you and enjoying your carefree attitude with your session.  Enjoy your sneak peek, Collins family!
