Happy Anniversary Kelli & Jonathan/ Long Beach Wedding Photography

I don't always get the opportunity to get the chance to really thank people for being outstanding clients.   A couple of  years ago one of my former clients Jessica was helping us at our booth at the Brea Bridal show when Kelli walked in.  Jessica and Kelli hit it off and  through another freak occurance we all met once again at La Palapa Del Mar.  Jessica just had her wedding at La Palapa the year before and just loved the place.  It was an ideal Long Beach  venue which was affordable but offered a very nice ballroom reception.  Since they met again they started hanging out together and now both couples are good friends.

Anyway, Kelli is one of the most asked about weddings I've had in years.  People want to know where she got her dress.  She said she got it at Alfred Angelo.   That's a little secret tip for those who are smart enough to read this blog because it's classified information.  The first thing that everybody says when they look at Kelli's demo album is "Wow, she's beautiful"  and "What a great looking couple!"

There we were at this state park in North County San Diego with this legendary beautiful bride ready to start our photo session. Just as she was finishing up her hair and makeup someone walks in and asks her 'Hey, what do you want to do about . . ." An hour later she was still outside directing the 20 friends who were setting up her tables what to do. The hour we lost in photography couldn't be made up, and the stress this added made her a bit tense.

The first bridal show of the season will be at Brea Community Center next weekend.  We'll be be in the "Art Studio."  It should be a good turn out because Brea always puts on a good show.  I've had to step back from my content creation this week to get demo albums and new literature ready for the show.  

There is going to be a new option coming out fairly soon on the price list.  All I can say for now is that it's going to really turn some heads.  It seems like it's going to fill a missing aspect of what our clients have been looking for from us.   But it will be done in such a way that will be uniquely us.

chino ca wedding engagement portrait 10Chino, CA Wedding Engagment Portrait Session/ Justin & Iris


Many years ago  I had a client in my office that had just signed up for wedding photography.  When the topic about where to have the engagement portrait session came up the groom had a big smile and said "The beach."  So, I asked (you folks out of state will get a kick out of this) when the last time they went to the beach was.   And it turned out it had been a while.  Though they live close enough to the beach to get to it within an hour it had been before this couple had met that either of them had been to the beach.    But for decades the ocean was the 'go to' spot for engagement portriats.  I have nothing against the beach, it's beautiful for photography, when it's a nice clear day.  When it's cold and ovecast the sky and water is grey and uninteresting.

It was time to come up with a header for the blog and I didn't want to use "Lifeline" once again.  It's a bit too obvious.  Actually I really liked the term I came up with known as "The Deckled Freckle", it kinda has a "Reagal Beagle" vibe going for it. But,  I'm actually weary of cutsy names.   I could have used the wedding theme ideas like "two hearts and a ring."  That's a bit too ordinary and it seems to be all over the place.  I don't want to be conventional, I have something different to say and I'm not afraid to say it.
