SISTERS | Family Session

It’s always exciting for us to see how much Dylan & Chloe grow each year. But this session in particular made my heart melt just witnessing how much these sisters love & enjoy each other. Like many little sisters, Chloe copied everything her big sis did. It was adorable! Of course, their little fairy tutus may have helped…just a little.








ANNA & PHONG | Coronado Wedding

We met Anna about 3 years ago. I like to call her my first “big girl” hair stylist. :) Before Anna, I had my hair cut by whoever and it usually cost me about $10 cause i just didn’t care enough. Till one day when i got the most crooked hair cut with bowl cut bangs. Since then i vowed to go to someone that knew how to cut hair especially thick hair like mine. I’ve been going to Anna ever since and so does Stan. So if any of you need a great haircut from an equally great person…look Anna up! :) She’s awesome!

Now on to their wedding day! It was a day full of laughter, DELICIOUS food, more laughter and of course, love. We saw a side of Phong that we never expected. For one, he had to work hard to be allowed to see Anna during the tea ceremony. And when I say hard I mean sing & dance “Slave for You” by Britney Spears in front of all his friends & family. :) Ha, Anna’s bridesmaid, did an excellent job spearheading that venture! :) Second, he cried during his sister & brother’s toast. I knew he was a teddy bear inside! We already know Anna is a softy so seeing Phong’s soft side further exemplified how perfect these two are for eachother!

And we can’t forget to mention the food at their reception! Wow! Crab legs, sushi, crepes, sliders…you name it, they had it! :) it was unbelievable!

Anna & Phong — to our fellow dog lovers…well, you guys already know how much we adore you! thank you for having us be a part of your day! it was soooooo much fun!!!!

RICH & GRACE | Crosby Wedding, Rancho Santa Fe

We’ve only known Rich & Grace for under a year but they have fast become two of our greatest friends. They know that the best way to our hearts is through our stomachs and let me tell you, these two can COOK! :) Beyond their culinary skills, they are also two of the kindest, most laid back, sincere, and fun-loving people we know. Needless to say we were more than honored to be a part of their wedding day.

I can’t end this post without saying that Grace is every guy’s dream. First, she’s hot. Second, she’s smart. Third, she’s warm hearted. Fourth, she has phenomenal skin. Fifth, she watches football. I have to admit, i’ve never been in a “getting ready” room where 8 gals are in 4 inch heels, eating bagels and hooting & hollering over a football game. Oh and running on time….way ahead of time. :) So Rich…you scored!

As for Rich…yes, he’s a steal too. He’s good-looking, loves to cook, has mad conga drums skills and can tumble like a roly poly stealth ninja! ;P

All-in-all these two are perfect for eachother and we couldn’t be happier for them!

Lastly, some awesome vendors we worked with that day:

Florals: gorgeous flowers by Organic Elements

JEREMY & CHRISTINA | Long Beach Wedding

During the toast portion of a wedding it’s pretty common that the bridesmaid speech makes you cry and the groomsmen speech make you laugh. Well, lately it’s been the dads who’ve been stealing the show! And at Jeremy & Christina’s wedding both of their fathers gave the funniest speeches with some tidbits of touching moments. First was Jeremy’s dad whose term “NG” we’ve adopted today. He described how growing up Jeremy tried all sports and did really well at basketball but when it came to soccer or football he was…NG. :) I’ll let you guess what it might mean! Then Christina’s dad followed up recalling her failed attempts to lie about sneaking out when she was younger. :) It was a lot of fun!

Jeremy & Christina — congrats, guys! what an awesome wedding! we’re crazy about you guys and hope you enjoy your pics!

Minh can always make us laugh!
