Ixchel and Mati

During my visit to San Diego I was able to do a family session for a friend of mine from high school, Ixchel and her son Mati. Ixchel is a beautiful mom who is loved dearly by her little guy. Mati was eager to explore the beach and show his mom around.

Ixchel, I'm so glad were able to catch up! Thanks for letting me hang out with you and Mati!

Tim and Danielle

Tim and Danielle are married! They had an amazing wedding at the Saint Louis Artist' Guild. Tim and Danielle saw one another before their wedding. It gave us plenty of time to explore the park at the Artists' guild! It was a beautiful day!!!

This one of Danielle and her mom makes me smile :)

First meeting, love the way Tim's eyes light up when he sees Danielle.

Beautiful flowers by Becky Huffman .

Tim and Danielle exchanged vows at Saint Cecilia Parish . It is a beautiful church. The mosaic work on the alter is amazing.

Jive and Wail dueling pianos provided the music. They had the dance floor packed!

Sweet Art provided the yummy cupcakes. The "Art" of Sweet Art created caricatures for the guests. Fabulous idea :)

Tim and Danielle, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day! It's obvious how well loved you both are by your family and friends. I was blessed to share your wedding day with you both!

Jessica Claire Workshop : California

Jessica Claire Workshop had her first workshop ever and I was lucky enough to be one of the first to attend. Jessica is a fabulous photographer based in Orange County California. I was really excited to see her in action. We started with a casual classroom setting of business chat ~which by the way she was extremely patient in answering all our questions...ok, all my questions :)

After class time, we moved outside to an amazing detailed mock wedding setup. Our couple was so sweet to volunteer to be in front of 24 other photographers and were so patient. Thank you Gena and Michael!!! Here are the talented people who put it all together::: Event and Photo Stylist: Grey Likes Weddings, Floral Design: Flora Organica, Hair and Makeup: Vivian Tran from All Made Up, Wedding Stationary, Favors and Paper Suite: MaeMae Paperie, Printing of paper products: Czar Press, Fabric Rosettes, shoe clips and 'just married banner': B. Poetic, Cake: Cheryl Steward of Cake My Day.

Michael Norward and his sweet family were the bridal party.

Stephanie and Lisa and I with Jessica. Clary also went, but she was there for the second day session. Luckily, we were able to hang out that night and enjoy a night in California together! I was blessed to meet 24 other talented photographers there, here are few that that have also blogged the event, Brandon Kidd had Bill Blakey. I will add more when I get the offical list.
