Smiles, Fun, Sweetness, Smiles, Dancing… did I mention Smiles? And some Disney love for added fun!

filed under: Weddings

Announcing Daniel and Serena Hinojosa!  We couldn’t be more excited to share this day with this amazing couple.  From our first meeting in Starbucks, we knew we were on to something good with these two!  We had so much fun with them during their engagement session in Disneyland earlier this year, and knew that their wedding was going to be a blast.  We couldn’t wait!  This sweet couple is full of love for each other, and those around them.  In case you couldn’t tell from these pictures, they’re also some of the happiest people you could ever hope to meet.

Daniel and Serena are also fellow Disneyland lovers, so they have a special place in our hearts.  If that weren’t enough, Serena had a hidden Mickey sewn into her dress!!  Check out the last picture of this set.  I couldn’t help but giggle like a little boy (or probably more like a little girl) when she showed me.  I hope you enjoy these pictures!  This day was so much fun!

Thank you Daniel and Serena for letting us be a part of your day.

Wedding coordinated by the incomparable Tracey Buys of Attention To Detail.  This is the 2nd chance we’ve had to work with Tracey, she’s amazing!  Seriously!

Disneyland. Carousel. Proposal. Exciting! Beautiful. This time, an ACTUAL ENGAGEMENT! :)

filed under: Disneyland, Engagements

What an experience this was!  At work last week, Tivon pulled Melissa aside and said, “I’ve been dying to tell SOMEONE!”

He pulled out the ring box, opened it and said, “I’m going to propose to Brandi this weekend!  Is there ANY way you guys can make it down?”

Well, lets see… Disneyland, engage…. of forget the reasons!  Of course we’ll be there!!  “We’ll find a way!”  Melissa told him excitedly, after catching her breath.

So here we have it, two amazing people who have chosen to spend their lives together… AND they’re planning an amazing wedding in a special place, but I won’t share that here just yet.  We’ll probably do an official engagement session soon with these two, but wow!  What an emotionally exciting day this was!!

Tivon told us as we were getting on the Carousel that he was going to do it, Melissa and I both experienced small heart stoppages.  We were excited and nervous for him, and didn’t want to spoil it with our excitement.  We tested our best poker faces.  Apparently it worked, because Brandi had no idea!  If you look at the third picture down, you’ll notice Tivon pulling the box out of his Chewbacca backpack, then “counting down” with his fingers behind his back (I only got “two” sadly).  After he opens the ring box to Brandi, she didn’t notice at first.

I love the last picture.. I was walking behind them, and Tivon just raised his arm winningly.

Thank you Tivon and Brandi for letting us be apart of this special moment in your lives, it was definitely special to us.  We are honored.

Oh.. The craziness! The family and guests at Jeremy and Michelle’s wedding left nothing on the dance floor… or in this photo booth.

filed under: Photobooths, Weddings

I always like to set up the photo booth right off of the dance floor.  People love to get crazy when they’re dancing, and get their picture taken!!  Even at the Bell Tower Club!  I’ll post more from this blast of a wedding soon!  For now though, enjoy the craziness!   Jeremy and Michelle, we LOVED your wedding!  Thanks again.

Head to the ordering gallery to see more photos!

Photobooth in Bakersfield!!

filed under: Photobooths, Weddings

Melissa and I LOVE doing PHOTOBOOTHS!  We have so much fun with the guests!  For our weddings we always offer a Photobooth as a popular add-on.  The images that come from our photobooths are always high quality and super fun!  You can see why these are so popular to include at a wedding.  In and around Bakersfield, you may see us at a wedding or company party, and sometimes even a house party!

Misty and Greg [Higgins] asked us to be a part of their beautiful wedding day.. and after the sun set, the dance music triggered the start of the photobooth!  Take a look at these fun pics!  Misty and Greg.. Your wedding was so fun!

The Gardens at Mill Creek are a great place to host a wedding!  A really beautiful venue.. Check it out!

Fun. Epic. Busy.

filed under: Disneyland, Engagements

In case you couldn’t guess from the title of this post…  Fair warning: It includes gratuitous pictures of people in love, in The Happiest Place On Earth (can I get sued for using that title?).

Fun. Epic. Busy.

That about describes the 2 fantastic days we all got to spend together.. in Disneyland.  Melissa and I have been itching to shoot a couple in Disneyland for some time now.  Jeremy and Michelle are almost as obsessed with Disneyland as we are!  Knowing they had gotten engaged at Disneyland we knew we had to try.  We casually (read: not so subtly) mentioned that there was a “strong possibility” we could all hang out at Disneyland, and call it an “Engagement Session.”

We had So. Much. Fun!  These two are hilarious!

It was everything we hoped it could be, and BUSY.  The park was so packed!  We didn’t really expect the park to be as full as it was, but whatever.. We had a blast!  The thing I love most about these images is to see Jeremy and Michelle’s honest feelings for each other.  They’re just pretty people inside and out… and as you can tell, they just adore each other.

Anyone would be lucky to call these two friends, and after this trip.. We get to.  :)

We can’t be more excited for their wedding this November!

PS.. It was tough to work around the crowds, BUT I was able to do a little homage to one of my favorite pictures of Walt Disney.  See if you know which one I’m talking about… ;)
