Wesley and Jim: Engagement

OK….we got a little crazy with this engagement blog post, but it was just too fun to hold back!  The weather was perfect (a little windy, but we escaped it!) and the couple was perfect!  We look forward to their October wedding in the new grandstand on the fairgrounds.  Here’s a few images that caught our eye….





Jason and Annie: San Diego Portraits

We experienced a bit of San Diego last week and had a great time.  The food was so good!  We couldn’t leave a beautiful city without a portrait shoot!  Thanks, Jason and Annie, for being such great subjects.  You both look incredible.  Six years and counting….awesome! 





Eliab: 1 year!

Cute…yep, he has it written all over!  Eliab made us smile!  Jen and Lucas….you’re raising a great little boy.  Keep it up and congrats on #2 coming in December!

Kasey and Dale: Wedding

There’s nothing like a mid-week wedding.  Yes, Kasey and Dale were married this past Wednesday and what a treat!  The weather cooperated and everyone was so happy and relaxed.  The Holiday Inn Riverside held the spot – all of it….the wedding, reception and dance.  It was so nice being in one location most of the day and enjoying the spirit of two wonderful people starting a new life together.  Kasey and Dale…congratulations!  Enjoy your honeymoon in Oregon!

The dress:

Lowe’s Floral were responsible for the beautiful flowers….

Getting her hair done at Artistry….

The one thing we loved so much about Kasey was her constant smiles and laughing through the day.  She’s full of life and it shows….

Back at the Holiday Inn for makeup….

The ceremony chairs…..

Very beautiful….

The wedding party was fun!

Awe yes…especially these wild and crazy guys!

Kasey and Dale chose not to see each other before the wedding.  We went outside after the ceremony for our outdoor shots.

Our favorite of the day….

We really wanted to blog what came next!  Hey, some pictures are just meant for the bride and groom!

Tucker….this little guy was amazing!  Smiles….all-the-time!  Do we need to say more?!  Here’s some of the fun….





Kaydence: 1 Year

This little one year old doll stole the show during her session – easily!  What a sweatheart.  Full of life, smiles and lots of love.  You made us smile during and after the shoot – and again while loading this blog post!  We started inside and ended with a few outside since the rain stopped.  Here’s a few of our favorites…
