Good evening from Orange County everyone! This is one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer who’s still coming off an awesome creative high over the past two days. As you have been witness to – this year has been bursting at the seams with so many things happening. It gets my brain spinning (in a good way)!
So if in the past 48 hours you saw any of my Facebook and Twitter updates updates throughout Sunday – then you more than likely saw some of the fun photos I was sharing with you from Sarah’s Huntington Beach Photo Shoot for her portfolio for the Ford Modeling Agency. Then later that afternoon – Ashley & David’s very romantic Costa Mesa Photo Shoot at the OC Performing Arts Center. Both of which were a lot of fun & totally gorgeous!
Then the cherry on top of the cake… All Hallow’s Eve at Sutra Orange County in Costa Mesa.
I’ll keep it brief, but let me just say I “thought” I was taking a few hours off this month at last night’s event, but ohhh how I thought wrong. I actually had the amazing experience of photographing the Paul Oakenfold; “We Are Planet Perfecto Tour” Halloween event. That’s all I can say right now, but there are a few photos on my Facebook Fan Page I captured with my iPhone last night/morning.
Ok… nerves are calm again. HeHeHe! Tonight’s Long Beach Wedding I’ve been dying to share with you & had the honour of photographing is a tsunami of colour, love & laughter all colliding into a symphony of an incredible wedding day.
The wedding I’m referring to that I photographed is LaJoy & Jaron’s Long Beach Wedding held at the Betty Reckas Cultural Center. LaJoy & Jaron’s wedding day was under the canopy of a crystal clear blue sky that lent itself to some absolutely amazing and colourful wedding photography.
From the minute LaJoy’s Mori Lee bridal dress by Madeline Gardner was laced up, her Badgley Mischka pumps slipped on & Jaron stepped into his custom fit John Salley tuxedo to the end of their wedding day and drove off into the moon-lit night – it was quite literally an incredible wedding day enjoyed by everyone. BUT! Not until we snuck in a few minutes so I could capture a few of my Signature Night Romantic Portraits. Which they rocked of course!

PS, I’m sure you’ve seen some of the quotes I’ve been sharing on Twitter keeping the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. Well, today I thought I would share some of my current favourite quotes & I would love to hear which one you like or which ones you have that are important to you. Here are mine:

- “A Man Can Change His Stars.” – The late Heath Ledger in “Knight’s Tale”
PSS, 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!
