Rogan & Emily {Dana Point Wedding Photography}

This beautiful couple was married at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point, California. It’s one of our favorite wedding venues in south Orange County because of its amazing ocean view. The property runs along the top of the cliffs of Dana Point and overlooks the Dana Point Harbor. Lantern Bay Park also runs adjacent to the hotel property and is inhabited by towering pine trees that make a wistful backdrop for bridal portraits.

This particularly beautiful August day was perfect for catching gorgeous images of the ceremony and reception! Even a few of the hotel guests watched the nuptials from their ocean view balconies. Everything on this day was perfect! I could have posted SO MANY MORE photos — from getting ready, to family portraits, details, and candid photos, this wedding day was amazing from start to finish.

It’s one of the greatest honors as a wedding photographer to be able to document such a momentous and intimate occasion. From the first kiss and dance as husband and wife to the ensuing celebration, I love every moment of it! I always look forward to the initial viewing of the images from each wedding Marvin shoots. I’ll admit that I may be a little odd and sometimes I’ll “oooo”, “ahhhh”, and occasionally laugh out loud when taking my first look. It’s a good thing I don’t share an office with anyone! I would be completely embarrassed.

Rogan & Emily are from the UK and fell in love with Dana Point. They chose to start their lives together here as they made their marriage vows to each other and recently made the move from the UK to our lovely coastal town! We welcome them as Dana Point residents and wish them luck with the expected [...]

G Dogs | Orange County Pet Portraits by Kimble Photography

Orange County Pet Photography

We started working with this family a few years back and absolutely adore their fur babies! I actually met them while working as a veterinary technician in south Orange County for my favorite veterinarian, Dr. Laurence Wahl at Laguna Grove Veterinary Hospital. I have a love for all things fuzzy (and even some scaly things too) and worked in the veterinary field for over thirteen years. Needless to say, I love when we get to work with pets!

It’s an all-out event when Marvin goes to photograph these pups and their parents. They’ve always got all hands on deck involving the groomer to fluff and primp and the trainer to keep all these canines in order. This time around they were all classed out in their cuffs and collars, bandanas, and bows.

It takes a special talent and lots of patience to snap a photo when all those fuzzy heads are looking in the right direction! Pet portraits are always a whole lot of fun.

The G Fam | Orange County Family Portraits by Kimble Photography

Check out these Orange County Family Portraits

— It’s always such fun to photograph this family! Lots of wiggles and giggles and tons of smiles make this crew a blast to work with. This photo spot in San Juan Capistrano never fails to impress. The color combinations of the foliage and grasses are different every time we come. The green leaves on the trees and the yellow grass definitely describes our southern California winter — it’s a little chilly, but still gorgeous!

Marvin snapped these family portraits between rain showers on a late winter afternoon. The cloud cover usually gives images a cooler tone, but I loved how these images were warm and cozy. The golds and yellows really came through in the photographs. We did a spring family portrait session with this family in the same location a few years back so it’s fun to see them in the same spot and looking so grown up!
