Framing the Light of Life


Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue

My first wedding of 2015, Matt and Griselda it was a pleasure. Their beautiful wedding took place at the Eagle Glen Golf Course in Corona California. Their blue themed wedding got me thinking about the something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue “ritual”. Most of the weddings I do brides still follow this ritual. I looked into it recently and found out that this phrase started as far back as 1894 the Victorian period. Participating in this ritual is suppose to be lucky for the bride according to The original phrase goes like this

“Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe”

It’s a Puritan Marriage Custom. The sixpence was a silver coin which was in use in the UK between the 17th and 20th centuries. It’s crazy how this one rhyme has lasted us hundreds of years. Wow! Anyways, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoys these images. They’ll be plenty more to come this year.

Robert and Kristins Fabulous Fall Wedding

Robert and Kristin’s wedding was one of my last weddings for 2014. Their wedding took place on a rainy fall day, it was a perfect backdrop to their fall theme. Congrats you two, it was a beautiful day and an honor to photograph your wedding.
I would also like to take the time to say thank you to all my wonderful clients from this year. At times being a wedding photographer can be extremely challenging. There’s a constant doubt and comparison. I can’t help but think I’m not good enough for the job. However, I have had constant support and I am so thankful for that. When I look back I have grown so much and will only continue to get better. I hope to capture pure, true, and real moments. I want to bring joy and meaning through my photography. Thank you so much to all my wonderful family and friends who have supported my art. Thank you to my clients for believing in my talents. I am looking forward to next year. Welcome 2015!

Kimmie and Randell

Kimmie and Randell tied the knot in Big Bear California. It was a beautiful sunny day and took place at a unique rustic venue. This was one my favorite weddings from this year for one specific reason. This couple gave me a lenghtly amount of time for portraits throughout the day. We weren’t rushed or bombarded with family, we had a good amount of time to explore and have fun. We were able to take pictures freely with no real time limit and then during the reception we snuck out to take even more portraits. This allowed me the opportunity take some beautiful portraits of the bride and groom. I cannot stress enough that time is of the essence. If you set aside enough time for your photographer this allows them even more time to create beautiful portraits for you. Nevertheless, a good photographer is able to take some great portraits with even the least amount time; however, I guarantee that any bride or groom will not regret the extra portraits and creativity that will come from this time. I mean after all photography is one of the only tangiable things left after the big day. With all that said congrats Kimmie and Randell may you guys have many many years together and enough your beautiful pictures.

The Flag- A Mini Series

In honor of the Fourth of July I did a mini series with the American Flag. The flag has so much power. Our flag symbolizes our freedom, our country, all that was done and all that continues to be done. I am so thankful to live in this country. Thank you to those that fought and continue to fight for this country, to those that serve and their families that give up so much. Happy Birthday America.
