Here are some ideas for venues if you are planning a Newport Beach, Orange County Wedding.  We were thrilled to spend the day with Mike and Shannon and photograph their wedding.   We started with a first look before the wedding at the Balboa Bay Resort and took a few photos of the couple there. We then headed to the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church for the wedding ceremony.  Afterwards the couple requested we go to the beach for the bridal photos.  Finally, their wedding reception was held at the Harborside Restaurant and Grand Ballroom located near the Balboa Fun Zone.  Such great spots for a wedding.  We hope you enjoy the photos.

We photographed Richie and Sheela’s wedding at the Balboa Inn in Newport Beach.  We loved working with this couple!  Sheela dressed in a traditional Indian Bridal Saree.  I love the first shot of her mom and Aunt helping her get dressed and all of the bangles and gold.  It looks so beautiful.  The couple had their wedding and reception on the Terrace at Balboa Inn. We also incorporated some Beach photos by the Balboa Pier since this venue is so close to the sand in Newport.  Congratulations to Richie & Sheela, it was a pleasure working with you and your family.

Cheers+Love, J+D

Ben and Megan planned their wedding in California at the Newport Beach LDS Temple.  We arrived for photos just as the couple made the exit from the temple right after their wedding ceremony.  The LDS temple in Newport has such beautiful grounds for wedding photos.  We loved it!!!
The couple also requested photos at the beach, so we headed to the Wedge in Newport Beach.  We had so much fun with this couple as they enjoyed the day in the sand.  A bride, running barefoot at the beach in her wedding dress is such a fabulous moment.  We got some great shots of these two in LOVE and having fun.

To celebrate with all of their family and friends they had an intimate wedding reception at Il Fornaio in Irvine, CA.  This is a great venue for a wedding of various sizes as they can accommodate your ceremony as well as a small to larger guest count for your reception.  Oh and the food is spectacular and I am not just saying that because I am Italian.  We have eaten there on several occasions.

Congratulations to Ben and Megan!!! We hope you enjoy the photos.  J+D

This Summer my sister Gloria and now brother-in-law Jeremiah were married at Portico Weddings & Events .  Portico is a great wedding venue in Gilbert, Arizona that hosts both an outdoor ceremony and reception.  What a great day for these two.  It was the perfect celebration for both of our families.  We were able to see some of our family and friends from back East that came out to celebrate with us.  Fun was had by all!

I had a little bit of double duty because I was a bridesmaid and our 2 year old son Hudson was a ring bearer.  I also helped photograph the wedding with my husband, Jeff.  Between the two of us, we were able to capture all of the wonderful moments of the day.

Congratulations to Jeremiah and Gloria!  Enjoy the photos as you relive your special day.  We love you both very much.

Cheers and Love,

Gosh, Summer is flying right by us!  School is already starting for some and we are taking Senior Photos for the 2016 graduates.  Here is Addison who recently visited California and wanted to do his senior portraits at the beach.  He lives and goes to school in Wisconsin, so this is definitely something different and will stand out.  His family was so excited to have a beach portrait done in Laguna to submit for his yearbook photo.  How cool will that be?

Addison was super cool to work with.  It was great that he included his baseball jersey for a few shots.  That is what this year is about.  Showing who you are and what you like to do to document this time of your life.  Congratulations Addison, we hope you have a great Senior year!!!



This was one of my favorite shots.

It shows off Addison’s baseball jersey but also shows him looking off.  Almost a symbol of what lies ahead with his Senior year in high school and graduation!


This is my dear friend Maggie’s son, Matthew. These boys are cousins so he crashed the Senior Portrait session, I love it!


Addison with his Mom, Heather!  This is a big moment for your parents too.  Congrats to them as well.
