Good evening from Newport Beach everyone! I am one super excited Wedding and Portrait Photographer right now. So many awesome things going on that I don’t know where to start. From Part II of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows starting tonight in just over 3 hours to tonight being the eve of the dreaded “Carmageddon” for us here in Southern California. That combined with all the post production I’m doing in between shoots, emails, phone calls, meetings and the occassional 2 to 5 hours of sleep I’m getting every night – I’m just totally amped to share with you. :)
Today I have got a really colourful and fun Engagement Shoot that I recently photographed of Adrienne and Matt at the Fullerton Arboretum.
Adrienne and Matt are going to be having their wedding this winter at the Fallbrook Wedgewood down by San Diego and one of the things that I’m doing with them was their Engagement Shoot. We had chatted about what they would like, the fun they share together and enjoy being outdoors too and the one location that kept coming to mind for their Engagement Shoot was the Fullerton Arboretum, which was quite literally… Perfect!
We had a total blast during their shoot! From the intimate and romantic portraits of them together, to the playful shots with our new duck friend that just couldn’t sem to get enough of them near the pond – it was a perfect morning with them! What’s great too – is that I got a taste of how much fun they are and I’m soooooo totally looking forward to more of it at their wedding.
So I’ll pretty much wrap it up & say that if you’re an Bride or Groom that wants to not only have a blast like we did for their Fullerton Engagement Shoot at the Fullerton Arboretum – but also be able to share with your family and friends some of my Signature Romantic, Playful and Dreamy portraits – feel free to get in touch with me anytime.
Without further ado, enjoy the delicious treat of a few of my favourite portraits from their Fullerton Engagement Shoot at the Fullerton Arboretum & have a fantastic Baby Friday – cheers!
PS, I shared a really inspiring message on Twitter earlier tonight & in case you missed it or don’t follow me on Twitter, here’s a little something that Oprah’s World said earlier today: ”Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” I like that & can totally believe in it. Nothing more like nails on a chalkboard when I hear someone say “I’m trying my best.” Uggghhhh! So what does that mean? Is the person not doing their best? They’re only sampling their best?. What do you think?
PSS, I also wanted to share a couple of websites with you that will help in dealing with the upcoming “Car-Mageddon” that is looming upon us here in Southern California THIS WEEKEND starting tomorrow; Friday, July 15th through Monday, July 18th. These two websites have some great tips on how to deal with driving in and around Los Angeles along with a ton of vendors helping the public get through the experience with discounts, events and great ideas on how to come together socially.
Check out: The Carmageddon Resistance (http://beatcarmageddon.com/) and Car-Mageddon (http://car-mageddon.com/cmg/Home.html). They’re both on Facebook & Twitter as well – sharing all the awesomeness that the people and businesses in Southern California are doing to help each other prepare and get through next week. If you have any ideas, totally be sure to share them here on the website or on my Facebook Fan Page orTwitter as well.
PPSS, I’m also the furthest south down in Newport Beach and… the ONLY photographer participating with Car-Mageddon! I’m getting crazy and taking $405 OFF any Wedding Photography package (not applicable to other discounts). The $405 off applies to anyone here in Newport Beach, Los Angeles, San Diego or even out of town. So if you know anyone that is getting married and wants to save some $$ on their wedding photography, have them contact me ASAP because this is only available until July 31st.
