Rekindling relationships that go back a few years is always exciting. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time has flown by when you’re playing catch up with friends. With Caroline, I am brought back to my time spent at Moorpark Community College taking Human Physiology. Fast forward 4 years later and she is a nurse who obtained her M.S.N. from her dream school, UCLA, and is marrying the man of her dreams, Dr. Mike Beak.

I can tell you all about the great time Connie & I had photographing Caroline & Mike’s Engagement Lifestyle Session, but what hits it home for me is the personal attachment they have for the locations we shot at. My words can’t do it any justice, so I would like to share with you the caption from Caroline’s Instagram.

“UCLA will always hold a special place in my heart. I knew I had to request to @stewartuy that some engagement photos be taken there. As a child, it was ALWAYS my dream school for studying nursing, it’s where I completed my MSN, and it’s where my dad is currently being treated for with the best hem/onc team! Lastly, the only reason why my dad was re-considered for surgery… well that’s all thanks to the handsome guy holding my hand who keeps me smiling everyday! Just had to share :) Thanks Stewart, I will always cherish these photos!”

Rereading that reminds me of how blessed I am. I not only get to do what I enjoy, but I am invited to the places that mean the most to my friends. I’m overwhelmed with joy knowing that these portraits hold a special place in their hearts. Without further ado, I’m proud to present Caroline & Mike’s El Matador and UCLA Engagement Lifestyle Session! Enjoy!

Yvonne & Brandon | Mira Vista Country Club Wedding

October 16th, 2014
share Yvonne & Brandon | Mira Vista Country Club Wedding

Every so often, I get the chance to photograph two beautiful weddings back to back during the same weekend. To travel to northern California for this double header was the icing on the cake! This time around, Yvonne & Brandon’s Mira Vista Country Club wedding date followed Lauren and Moe’s lovely day (I’ll be posting their wedding soon!). Most would agree that after a 10+ hour day of shooting, doing it all over again the next day would be exhausting! But when I have the privilege to photograph a couple who is fun and welcoming like Yvonne & Brandon, all the energy I thought I had used comes back to me as I thrive off of their liveliness.

From Yvonne’s first look with her father to the emotional toasts, I felt like I had known them for years before their wedding day. I’m proud to call these two my friends and I wish them the very best in this next chapter of their life. I’m stoked to know that every time I photograph a wedding up north, I’ll be able to catch up with them at church the following day! Without further ado, I present to you Yvonne & Brandon’s Mira Vista Country Club wedding!
