Hector and Malorie's Engagements

Monday, October 20, 2008

With the change of the season, I find myself loving being outside more and more...especially for pictures. I met Malories and Hector at one of my favorite venues, Still Waters Vineyard. We had a great time taking their engagement pictures and enjoying the beautiful fall and harvest time. They both have a sweetness about them that was fun to capture. To finish the session off, they got to enjoy a little wine tasting for a job well done. I look forward to their wedding next year!

Astor + Nicole {Paso Robles}

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

Saturday was an amazing day on all fronts...I had the joy of shooting Astor and Nicole's wedding in Paso. The morning started off with a bit of a rain scare but the weather held off and provide a great setting for the wedding. Astor and Nicole have something that is contagious to those around them. Their friendliness, sincerity and liveliness were characteristics that had me thinking of them even after the wedding. One of the sweetest parts of the day was to watch a new family formed. Nicole has a beautiful daughter who was beyond thrilled to have a new dad and both Astor and Nicole are expecting a little bundle of joy in only a few months. Thank you, Lawsons, for allowing me to share in your big day!

Ken + Candice {Villa de Buena Vista}

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

There is something definitely special and sincere about this couple. Ken and Candice were a joy to work with and be around. We started out in Cambria for an intimate ceremony and ventured back up to Paso for an amazing reception at the Villa de Buena Vista (I think it has become one of my favorite places to shoot). I find that at toast you can often get a quick picture of a couple...during their toast, it was evident the integrity that both Ken and Candice have and the blessing they are to everyone they are around. I find weddings like this speed by and I too enjoy myself as much as the guest.
