A very handsome couple with a great love and appreciation for one another and a beautiful child to prove it. Stefanie contacted me last year for their “destination” wedding in Oxnard, CA . It was a fun road trip for Brett and I (except the drive through LA ) and it was a beautiful location for a wedding. It was held at the Embassy Suites in Oxnard, a full day of wedding bliss. I loved the colors that Stefanie chose and there was so much personal detail from their history together poured into this wedding. They had friends and family from all over come for this celebration and it made for a GREAT party at the reception.
Drew and Stefanie – it was our pleasure to photograph your wedding. You are an amazing couple with a great future ahead of you. Blessings to you both!

This is one of my favorite ring pictures we have ever taken and it was taken by master Brett. Love it!
Stefanie was absolutely gorgeous!
I loved the back of Stefanie’s dress.
Drew was very dashing and he had “the look”. He was great in front of the camera.
The ring bearer was Drew and Stefanie’s little two year old. He was absolutely adorable.
The next couple of pictures are a sequence from their first meeting together. So precious.
I had to include a picture from this moment when we were waiting for the ceremony to begin and the flower girl and ring bearer were playing with the petals. SO stinkin’ cute!
This little flower girl was precious. She stopped halfway down the aisle and just dumped the entire basket of petals.
A beautiful setting.
The minister was hilarious and had us all laughing.
And then it was time to party. Brett and I love to have fun at all of our weddings and we love to dance. At this reception they had formed a circle on the dance floor. Well, Brett and I hopped right in and did a little dance while capturing some laughs on camera. So much fun!!! DJ Matt Graumann from www.mattgraumann.com was excellent!

Dan and Patty’s wedding is in May, but they asked if we could do a Bridal Session before their wedding with her real wedding dress and everything. Of course we were extremely excited! When thinking of locations to shoot at, I always ask my client what kind of feel they would like, what kind of location characterizes them or has some sort of significance. Dan and Patty immediately jumped on that and said that they would love to end the shoot at UTC ice skating rink because that is where they first met and Dan threw out there the idea of starting at the Air and Space Museum because he is really into planes (part of his job). I LOVED their creativity. In the midst of that we also wanted to think of somewhere grand and fortunately the Grand balroom of the Prado was available at the time of our shoot. In addition to all of these fun locations, Dan and Patty provided very classy and stylish looks that added to the awesomeness of this couple. When Patty showed up in her actual wedding dress, my mouth dropped as she looked stunning. This dress is one of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen and the best part is that she and Dan designed it together. Isn’t that so cool???
This couple has a great sense of humor and were laughing throughout the entire shoot. I love the way that they interact with one another, sometimes it is as if no one else is in their world but them. It is so cute to watch. They have true love and admiration for one another and their wedding is going to be total beauty and hilarious fun!
Dan and Patty, you were troopers and it was such a fun shoot. I can’t believe that you actually went out on the ice in skates in your dress, but it made for some fabulous pictures!
Thank you to the staff at the Air and Space Museum, the Prado and the UTC skating rink!
