Vance & Joanna DeGeneres Wedding {Ojai. CA}

Oh Ojai.. Where do I start? this place was the perfect place for a wedding.. for a vacation or just a get away.. so when i got the Msg from Jenn that she needed a 2nd shooter for her upcoming wedding I was stoked  not only because she is an amazing head shot photographer & she wanted ME to join HER! (you can view her headshot work here..& the  location of this wedding was at the BEAUTIFUL OJAI VALLEY INN.

we went right to the Pent house suite and got started…  & the day just got better I got to meet Joanna and she was a Doll!  Joanna was  calm and the room was quite,  being a wedding photographer that is Rare.. usually wedding mornings can be a bit crazy but not this morning..

the backdrop of the ceremony couldn’t have been better – the sun was out, the sky was blue and the chairs were filled with guest anxiously awaiting for the couple to say I do.. & Joannas best fried sang a song that Vance wrote just before the bride came out the door…

Ontario, CA Engagement photo session { Carolina & Julio}

First off A big congratulation to Julio & Carolina on their engagement!

Carolina & Julio were such a FUN couple to work with & they were my first couple to ever bring the baby along.. OK well not a baby baby but their dog who is their baby and if i have to say to myself he was pretty well behaved!

I’m not going to lie after chatting with Carolina over the planning process i was getting anxious to shoot this session

the location details sounded awesome and we all know I LOVE great locations!  & to make it even better Carolina mentioned 2 more locations that I had been wanting to shoot at!
