Sweet O Donuts Shop Engagement Session | Connor + Jacey

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!

Muldoon’s Irish Pub Newport Beach Wedding | Wayne + Genie

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 best of Orlando limos 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.

The French Estate Wedding Photography in Orange, CA | Alex + Nicole

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!

Christmas Tree Farm Holiday Family Portrait

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!

Heritage Park Wedding in Oceanside | David + Helen

Today we are featuring some moments from David and Helen’s wedding at Heritage Park in Oceanside, California. This is such a cute little wedding venue to have an outdoor lawn ceremony or reception event. You can get married right at the gazebo and take plenty of wedding photos in the surrounding village area.  We just loved this couple, David and Helen had such fun personalities.  I love the shot where David lifted up his bride as they exited the ceremony.  If you are planning a wedding in the San Diego area this year, you have to check out this hidden little spot for your big day.

Congratulations to David + Helen… wishing you both many years of happiness! J+D

Rustic Wedding Details at Red Horse Barn

We just photographed Chris and Maryalice’s wedding at the Red Horse Barn and were so impressed by all of the decor details that we wanted to feature them in a separate blog. At this wedding we worked with An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning. Both of these wedding & event companies do such an impeccable job with their events. We are continually amazed at the detail and workmanship that goes into their weddings. It truly is a pleasure to be surrounded by other vendors that share the same work ethic as us. Both the staff of Red Horse Barn, An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning go above and beyond to make everything perfect on your wedding day. We highly recommend them!
If you are looking for a great rustic, western or outdoor woodsy themed wedding venue, you’ve found it here with the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach.  Enjoy all of the wedding details!!

Red Horse Barn Wedding | Chris + Maryalice

Congrats to our featured couple today, Chris and Maryalice, on their recent wedding. It was a beautiful day for a June wedding at The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach.  We love this venue as it makes for such a romantic setting for your special day.  It was such a pleasure working with Chris and Mara (a.k.a Maryalice) as they have some cute love stories.  The two met on a blind date that was set up by the groom’s sister, Megan.  After the date, the two began to follow each other on Instagram and the rest they say is history.  These two are quite the sports fans, during the ceremony the officiant mentioned that Mara was a keeper when she agreed to season tickets for the Anaheim Ducks.  Chris was overjoyed!!  They also shared with us that they got engaged during an Angels Baseball game.  How awesome is that?
The day was perfect thanks to all of the details and coordination of An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning.  In fact, we were so amazed by all of their hard work and fabulous wedding details that we will be featuring them in a separate blog to follow this post.  We hope you check back to see all of their fabulous work.

Congrats again to Chris+Maryalice!  Wishing you both a wonderful life together… cheers! J+D

Our Son Hudson Turns 3 Years Old Today!

Happy Birthday to our little man Hudson who turns 3 years old today!

It is bittersweet as our baby boy is growing up way too fast. He still has his curls, but he is a little boy now. No more baby!!! At least I have these photos from his 3rd birthday portrait so I will always remember him this way.  As a momma, I miss the baby boy, but it is so much fun to watch him mature and become a little person. He is so smart and always has so much to say. I thank him for his spirit as he keeps us young and adventurous.  He just loves to go out and experience life.
We are so blessed to have Hudson in our lives. His love and spirit touches our heart everyday.

Happy Birthday to our sweet little boy! Mommy and Daddy love you very much and we can’t wait for our next adventures with you.
