Good evening from Orange County everyone! This is one Wedding Photographer in Newport Beach was sooooooooo totally loving the gorgeous skies we had today. It’s one of the best things I love about being “behind the curtain” in Newport Beach, or Huntington Beach or pretty much any of the other awesome beach cities in Southern California.
Over the years I have had the honour of meeting thousands of people. All the way from San Diego to Seattle, from Chicago to New York, from Miami to London and even here in Newport Beach. Well among my many travels and people I get to work with, I get to really know some of my clients really well. One of which is Terri – my long time client turned “Dinner & Shopping” partner-in-crime to BFF over the past 11 years.
A few months ago when Terri went with me to see Curt Smith from Tears For Fears perform a private concert for Brit Week at the Whitefire Theatre when I got two free tickets from the British Consulate in Los Angeles – we inevitably turned it into a business meeting because she wanted to hire me to do portraits of her parents.
Fast forward after several emails, text messages, calls and even an outing in Santa Monica where I discovered my favourite mojito made with oranges & jalapenos – the portrait shoot of her parents came to life in Seal Beach.
Along with the classic green belt where Terri’s parents went for a bit of a stroll, I have a few secret spots in Seal Beach that I love to use and are totally perfect for doing portrait photography. In fact, I had a few I really loved and wanted to share with you tonight now that I’ve finished putting on my Esquire Mojo on them. I even used some proprietary techniques I’ve been working on this year to take a few years off along with enhancing the symphony of colours that were abundant that day.
So! Before you check out some of my favourite portrait photographs from Terri’s family portraits in Seal Beach and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Newport Beach Wedding Photographer (Previously a Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer) that loves music & fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime.
I hope you had a great Baby Friday & stay tuned for some fun that Duran Rex & I will be having this weekend. I will be photographing Adrienne & Jeremy’s Newport Beach Wedding on Saturday. If Adrienne & Jeremy’s names sound familiar, it’s because I recently photographed their completely EPIC Laguna Beach Engagement Shoot at the Montage Resort Laguna Beach. Then on Sunday, I’m heading back down to the Wedgewood Fallbrook in San Diego to photograph Christine & Ralph’s wedding. So definitely keep a watch out on my Facebook Page or Twitter for some fun iPhone photos with Duran Rex – cheers!
PS, If you’ve been keeping up with my Facebook and Twitter updates – then you have seen my Rock Star Client Concierge; Linda chiming in every now & then. Linda is a long time client, turned BFF for nearly 9 1/2 years. She’s recently joined this Nacho & Newcastle lovin Newport Beach Wedding Photographer and is already keeping up with my awesome signature service I deliver to my clients. I’m receiving notes from brides – some of which saying: “OMG, I LOVE Linda!!” and “She should be a life coach!” Uhmmm… Between Linda & Duran Rex getting all that attention – I’m starting to get a little jealous. HeHeHe!
