Second with Amelia!!! Come see Matt and Melissa's Wedding

I have been a bit behind in posting some really cool stuff!!!! I had the amazing privalige of second shooting for the Great Amelia Lyon. She is a wonderful friend and and even better photographer! I really don't know how she does it all! We worked together on the beautiful wedding of Matt and Melissa and it was absolutley AMAZING! Their reception was at the Summit House in Fullerton. Here are just a few of my favorites from their special day.

BRIDES L O V E Amelia!!!! I have proof right here! They come to her so happy and so amazed. It is beautiful to see her brides connect with her at the end of the night. Sometimes they even start to cry when they see her slideshow! Now thats really how to tell your photographer you love your pictures!
There was a ton of dancing at this reception! It was a blast!
Thanks for checking in and I still have more catching up to do.. so stay posted! =)

Francis & Melinda-Vow Renewal-10 Years of Love

Me and my wonderful hubby, Alex, had a great time on May 5th. We had the pleasure of photographing the vow renewal of Francis and Melinda. They held nothing back for this beautiful ceremony in Montery Park. All decked up in an amazing dress, Melinda was as stunning as a brand new bride. Francis was looking sharp as well, but it was their 4 spectacular children who really added to the sense of love and compassion that this family carries for each other. What an amazing family to spend the afternoon with. We had great time, visiting with thier friends and family and of course documenting this special day of celebration!

We took a few portraits before the ceremony.

The venue was beautiful, Montery Hill Restaurant, had so many great spots to shoot. I loved that we had a few minutes to get so fun shots before the vows were exchanged.

This image of their 3 boys, is one of my favorites from the day.

I love how much in-love Francis and Melinda are. It was a very sweet and emotional ceremony. I caught myself a bit teary-eyed as Melinda gave her vows to her husband of 10 years.
How cute is this.. the officiant had their kids slip their wedding rings back on their fingers for them, promising that mommy and daddy love each other!!!!

Don't they look great!
Just a moment as Melinda stepped out of the elevator. As happy as a newly married bride.

I really had fun with their rings, here is my favorite shot of the day.

The happy family.
And the happy couple!
I pray that I share the same passion with my own husband in 10 years. To see a slide show with more images from Francis and Melinda's day click here.
