Beautiful Talega Golf Course Wedding

What a gorgeous wedding! The beautiful setting at the Talega Golf Course is the perfect backdrop for a romantic wedding. These two were an absolute delight to work with!

As photographers, we enjoy capturing the beauty of the couple in portraiture. But my favorite part of looking through the images when I get them back is looking for those unscripted moments — sometimes¬†elicited by that funny guy behind the camera who has a knack for making people feel at ease. For example, this bridal party photo had me giggling. We strive to capture the personality of a couple and their guests on their wedding day because your wedding day should be remembered for all its romance, commitment, and elegance — as well as the party!

These two are in for a wild ride as husband and wife!

Newport Beach Lifestyle Photography – A Photographer’s Paradise

Newport Beach Lifestyle Photographs

We recently took a trip up to Newport Beach to get some Newport Beach Lifestyle photographs last week and played in the sand and watched the fishermen clean their fish on the pier. While on the sand, I was reminded of a shot I took many years ago in a Black & White photography class in Long Beach. This is a similar shot, although it’s in vibrant color. While taking it, I was noticing other people taking out their cameras and trying to get similar shots to what I was taking. It’s fun taking photos while others are watching you and doing what you’re doing! I was a little humbled¬†to see that others wanted to replicate some of the photos I took at the pier that day. As we were leaving, I saw this pelican posted on the roof of the fishery, he let me take one picture of him before he flew away. Hope you like the results. ~Marvin

Chase Man

San Juan Capistrano Family Portraits

We have loved taking this family’s photos from the very beginning! We did their Save-the-Date Portraits before their wedding day, Maternity Portraits pre-Chase, Newborn Portraits of Chase-Man, and now the perfect Family Portrait! It is so wonderful to see a family grow and evolve! This little guy turns one year old next month and I can’t believe how time flies! Can’t wait for these two fabulous people to make Chase a big brother (hint, hint — let’s get that ball rolling, Tomps!)

The gorgeous afternoon light created a warm wash that embraces this family’s fun spirit. And this 9 month old kiddo was a DREAM to work with; he was smiling in nearly every photo. Love these people more than words!!!!
