Santa Ana Wedding | Christy + Pauley

It's always a cool thing to me when we book clients who were guests at other weddings that we've photographed. So many different paths have crossed and friendships have developed that otherwise wouldn't have if it weren't for our awesome job. We booked these two lovebirds online and officially met Christy and Pauley for the first time in person on their wedding day! I love that it wasn't awkward at all - that all of their friends and family treated us as one of their own. 

You get to know a couple really well on their wedding day - a day full of highs and (sometimes) stressful lows that exhibit their character. Their dispositions were unperturbed, humble, and gracious. They exuded love towards so many others not counting the love that they have for one another. Their wedding was all things wonderful, pure, and beautiful with lots of tears, heartfelt speeches, laughter, and happiness. 

Together, they got married in the chapel at Calvary Church of Santa Ana (with epic Star Wars music, might I add) and ran off into their future through hundreds of bubbles blown by all their loved ones!

Orcutt Ranch Engagement Session | Ciera + Stephen

Steven and Ciera were such an enjoyable couple to be around.  So easy-going, yet certain of their desires.  They had just been engaged a couple of days when we shot their engagement and Ciera had already gotten her dress, chosen their colors, and sealed the venue, etc!  

This shoot took place in West Hills as we ventured throughout the Valley just after a few rain-showers which finally gave us some green out here - so we took advantage of the rolling hills!

Enjoy, and stay tuned for pictures of their wedding coming up in August!
