Veronica and Justin - Engagement Shoot

Veronica and Justin are getting married! They love spending time together since they started working together 3 or 4 years ago. They no longer work at the same restaurant, but they are both going through the Cicerone Certification Program for Beer! They are Cicerone certified beer servers and are studying for the next level as Cicerone Certified.  Who knew?

They have planned their wedding in March to be held at 32 North Brewing Co., but it's a little far away for an engagment shoot. Justin contacted one of their favorite breweries in town, Tenaya Creek, and they allowed us to use their brewery on a Sunday morning! Here are some of our favorites.

A little attitude



Justin proposed in Harry Potter World in Florida, but decided this was good for the pictures! I agree!

Thanks Brian for your hospitality!

Love is Brewing!

Roseann and James - Summer Wedding

Roseann and James had their first date many years ago but the timing wasn't right. Fast forward to years later after life happened and they found each other, again. This time, they made the commitment to love each other forever in front of God and many witnesses. I want to say, "we had a blast" but I've been using that expression for years. It still fits. Thank you Rosie and Jimmie for such a great time for everyone.

While every aspect of the wedding was enjoyable, except for the pastor scolding me for using my flash towards the end of the ceremony, oops, the details were probably the most delightful. You can tell the amount of love that went into planning this wedding. Love that my sister asked me to photograph their wedding.

The yellow ribbon was in honor of Jim's daughter, serving in Afghanistan

The work is done - it's time to have some fun!

Most fun bouquet toss ever! Roseann faked them out the first time by keeping the bouquet and then everyone was out for blood!

Noah and Ashley - Engagement Shoot at San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park

My husband and I went with Ashley and Noah for their engagement shoot to the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. It was the perfect place because they both have a love for animals - and Ashley had just graduated as a Veterinarian. San Diego just happens to be my favorite city in the U.S. dating back to my Marine Corps days! I'm a little biased because Noah is my nephew, but this may have been my favorite photoshoot ever! But, then I often say that right after I've had a photoshoot.

Besides having fun and getting a feel for each other at engagement shoots, you can also use the pictures for the guestbook and other details at the />

Class of 2013

High School Graduation! What an exciting time of life! I am so proud of the seniors of Class of 2013 and want to post a few of my favorites from each of their sessions. All of them are so talented from singing to sports to musicians. I am grateful for the opportunity to photograph each and every one!
