I shot the most beautiful bridal shower last weekend. It was hosted at Paris in a Cup Tea & Salon Cafe in Orange.  The theme for this shower was a combination of Paris and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and I’ll explain why.  The groom-to-be is from France, so we have the Paris theme.  The bride has loved the movie Beauty in the Beast since she was a little girl and the couple met when they worked together for Disney.  Paris in a Cup is a gorgeous Paris themed cafe which made for the perfect venue for this event.  The food looks amazing.  All freshly baked scones and pastries to serve with your tea.  For lunch, a fresh salad and assortment of finger sandwiches to please all.  Just fabulous!!  When your visiting Old Towne Orange near the Orange Circle, stop by and check it out.  I can’t wait to go back and have a little lunch myself.

We hope you enjoy the photos from Paris!

Today we are sharing the beautiful wedding of Connor and Jacey. We had so much fun doing their Donut Shop Engagement Session and couldn’t wait to shoot the big day.  The couple had their wedding ceremony at their family church, Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Huntington Beach. It was the same church the groom’s parents were married at years ago.
The wedding reception followed at The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach, California.  We are so excited to share all of their fun loving wedding memories.

We are sharing today, Connor and Jacey’s engagement session at the Sweet O Donuts Shop in Huntington Beach. When we talked about ideas for engagement sessions, the couple mentioned about always going on dates to the donut shop. Jacey lit up when we talked about the possibility of shooting the session there. I loved the idea and couldn’t wait to shoot it!  The ideas came rushing through what we wanted to do before we even got there.  Sometimes some of the best photos come from a simple idea with a cute couple in love.

Thank you to the owners at Sweet O Donuts for letting us photograph this sweet engagement session at your shop.  Also, for surprising the couple with the donuts shaped in the phrase “Marry Me”! That made such a great photo op. This session was so much fun and I loved working with all of you. Connor and Jacey are such a fun loving couple and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding in June.  Stay tuned for the wedding photos.  Enjoy the photos!

Eat, Drink and be Married!
Cheers to our featured couple today, Wayne and Genie. We had such a great day photographing the love story of these two. I started off with our bride Genie, with some pre-ceremony shots at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach where she got ready with her daughters and granddaughter. When the girls were all ready, the limo picked them up and off they went to Harbor Christian Church for the wedding ceremony. Afterwards, their wedding reception followed at Muldoon’s Irish Pub in Newport Beach where the couple celebrated pub style with family, friends, food, drinks and dancing. We had a fantastic time with this couple and it was a true pleasure to document their wedding day. I have to admit, we ended the night with a celebratory cocktail in honor of the couple. My husband, Jeff was in fine Irish style as he toasted a Guiness beer to our new friends and a gin and tonic for me. Cheers to that!
Congratulations to Wayne and Genie, thank you for having us be a part of your day.

Today we are sharing the beautiful wedding of Alex and Nicole at The French Estate in Orange, California.  We Love this venue!  The French Estate home has a beautiful front yard garden area for your wedding ceremony as well as a backyard area for your reception.  It is such a hidden gem right here in our local city of Orange.

This couple had some fantastic moments including a first look for the bride with her father and older brother’s.  Then a few words with her husband to be, right before the ceremony, which made for such a romantic moment.  Another grand moment was their sparkler send off along the driveway.  Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE what we do as wedding photographers.  We hope you enjoy the moments!
Congrats to Alex and Nicole… Cheers + Love from The Sipper’s!

Happy Holidays to you and yours. It’s that time of the year when we are sharing such wonderful family moments with our clients during our Holiday Family Portrait season.  Some of our families shoot with me every year so that they can put together a holiday card of photos.  Others shoot just to have a nice family portrait as their children are growing up and changing year to year. It’s amazing to me to have watched some children grow up through my camera lens.  I love being a part of their lives and documenting each moment.

Today I wanted to feature the wonderful Rebecca Calagna and her family.  Rebecca is a Wedding & Event Planner here in the Orange County area.  I have had the pleasure of shooting with Rebecca and her family for several years in a row now.  She is a pleasure to work with both personally and professionally.   If you are getting engaged this holiday season, please check her out for all of your wedding planning needs in 2017!  You can find her at Rebecca Calagna Wedding & Event Planner

We had so much fun with this Christmas Tree Farm holiday family portrait.  So excited to share these photos with you!

I love these action shots of the family blowing snowflakes up in to the air!!! Such great family fun!
