A big congratulations to Rob and Sheryl on their engagement.  We had an awesome time capturing the love between these two as strolled along near the San Juan Capistrano Train Depot and the historic Los Rios area.  The two will be getting married in Austin, Texas in 2014.  Wishing you both all of the best!





We are looking forward to the 2014 wedding season and already booking dates.  If you or someone you know is engaged and getting married next year, please tell them about Sipper Photography.  Jeff and I would love to be there to capture all of the moments of your special day.  For further details or to see if your wedding date is available, email us at: or give us a call at 714.348.0630.

Spring is here and wedding season is just around the corner!  Recently, we took a trip up to the San Francisco Bay area to do an engagement portrait for our wedding couple Brad and Dee.  It was a beautiful day in San Francisco with clear skies to document Brad and Dee’s engagement celebration.  To our surprise we even got a shot of the couple out by the Marina with the Golden Gate bridge in the background.   It’s funny because more often then not it is always foggy when Jeff and I visit there.
Brad and Dee were so great to work with.  I loved when Dee just kicked up her foot in a couple shots and just had fun being in love.  We are looking forward to shooting their wedding in June at the Crooked Vine Winery in Livermore.  Until then, enjoy the photos from the gorgeous San Francisco city.

Phil & Julia = Engaged


We loved photographing Phil and Julia.  Oh, and don’t forget Bebe, their dog.  She is here too!  Phil and Julia decided on an Urban look for their engagement portrait.  Julia is a designer and she likes the look of texture and architecture.  Turns out it fit the fun personalities of these two just perfectly.  You wouldn’t think that such a simple wall background would make such a sweet photo! Lots of cute moments to share of our friends.

This was one of my favorite shots of the day with the couple holding an ampersand sign. I love the windows too!

Cute skull dress Miss Julia!

I loved  Julia’s dress with the heart shape back.  So appropriate for engagement photos! 🙂

Urban Couple Portrait with their dog

Here’s Bebe, the dog.  We think she missed her calling as “doggy model”.  So cute!

Cute focus on the groom-to-be!

Here are our favorite photos from Mike and Stacy’s engagement session in Laguna Beach.  Mike popped the question here at this beach, so we thought it would be the perfect location for them to do their engagement photos.  These two really wanted to do something fun and casual for their portrait as it fits their personality.  They love the beach!!  Mike likes to surf so we incorporated his surfboard into a few shots.  We loved working with this couple.  Congrats to Mike and Stacy!

The hill in the distance is the spot where Mike popped the question and Stacy said “Yes”.
This photo will remind them of that special day for the rest of their lives.

Wow! 2012 is turning out to be a great year for weddings at Sipper Photography, but also with our own families.  In March, my little sister Cindy got married to Greg in Arizona (here is their wedding blog in case you missed them)!   This August, Jeff’s cousin, Kristen (she is my cousin too, through a lovely thing called marriage) will be exchanging vows with her fabulous fiance, Justin, in Oahu, Hawaii.  We are looking forward to their big day. Hawaii Baby… Alohaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

With all of these family weddings, comes family celebrations.  Today we are having a bridal shower for our bride to be, Kristen.  So, I am ready to bring the party on!!!  In honor of their day, I thought it would be nice to share a few photos from Justin and Kristen’s engagement session we did out in the Temecula Wine Country. Happy Shower Day, Kristen!  Also, a big congratulations to you and Justin on finding the one.
