Today we have a very special couple to share with you.  Recently, my friend Carolyn, who is a minister for So Cal Officiant referred us to Stevie and Jaime as they needed a photographer for their private wedding ceremony at the Los Angeles County Arboretum.  It was a Wednesday morning that I got the call from Carolyn letting me know she gave the couple our information for their ceremony on Sunday.  Short notice I thought, but when I spoke to Stevie on that Friday morning he mentioned he was a touring musician and had a break in his schedule, so they wanted to have their wedding ceremony.  Turns out that Stevie is the lead guitarist for the band Buckcherry and he wanted us to shoot his wedding.

We love the small, intimate wedding ceremonies and this truly was an amazing one to be a part of.  Jeff and I signed the couple’s marriage license as we not only photographed their vows, but were their official witnesses to them.

Carolyn performed a fabulous ceremony for the couple, I love, love, love her.  She has such a passion for performing weddings!  It truly was a pleasure to work with her.  If you are a bride or groom in the Orange County or Los Angeles area and are looking for an officiant-minister for your wedding ceremony, please contact Carolyn.

After the wedding ceremony we had the opportunity to capture some awesome moments between Stevie and Jamie.  I can truly say that they rocked it!  Afterwards we had lunch with the couple and since then even had the opportunity to see Stevie perform with Buckcherry as they played recently at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine.

Thanks so much Stevie and Jamie for sharing this special day with us.

All the best to you both!

Stevie is also a photographer.  He shoots a lot when he is on tour of the band, people and places he goes.

We thought this was a fun shot of him photographing his bride-to-be.

Happy Friday everyone!  We hope you all have a fun Valentine’s holiday planned.  Jeff and I will be visiting Palm Springs this weekend for some work and then a little R&R!  We are so excited to shoot Jeff and Kacy’s wedding tomorrow at The Viceroy Hotel, this is our first wedding of the year and it is going to be fabulous.  Since we were staying over for the wedding, we decided to take an extra day to stay and celebrate Valentine’s Day and relax.  I can’t believe with all of the bad weather we have been having across the country, Palm Springs will be a beautiful 75 degrees for the wedding and almost 80 degrees for the rest of the weekend.  What to pack??? LOL  Whatever you are doing this weekend, in the snow or the warmth, remember to celebrate your loved ones!

Here is a little Friday Fun I thought I would share.  I recently had the opportunity to do a shoot for Argosy University and the Orange Chamber and met Baseball Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda, yes Mr. Dodger himself.  What an honor to shoot this event and hear Tommy speak.  That man loves baseball!  He reminded me of my dad, always could talk about baseball and his team.  In my dad’s case it was the Yankees, but the passion was just the same, he loved baseball and all of the history that went with the game.

I snapped several photos of Tommy speaking and even got a photo with him myself.  My friend Tanya of Design Action Studios was also there and put together a little video montage of the event and his speech which you can view here.  If you like baseball, especially the Dodger’s you want to watch this!


Here is Tommy when he arrived!
