Lauren & Moe | Birdstone Winery Wedding in Madera, CA

It’s not often that I receive speeding tickets before I arrive at a venue to photograph a wedding (confession: my foot can get a little heavy on the gas ^_^). I find it funny that I usually can’t stay upset when such happens, however. I ultimately find that the joy of serving others outweighs my personal problem(s). Lauren & Moe’s intimate Birdstone Winery wedding in Madera, CA was no exception to that.

I emotionally invest myself into capturing each unique moment- during Lauren and Moe’s wedding, I remember how awestruck I felt when photographing Moe as he laid eyes on Lauren for the first time while she walked down the aisle that day. I love how spontaneous they were with one another, slow dancing to no music as the sun began to set. I have the privilege of seeing people let their guard down in the midst of their love and happiness which I get to share with everyone- it is always an honor for me to capture such special moments.

Without further ado, I am pleased to present to you Lauren & Moe’s vineyard Birdstone Winery wedding in Madera, CA. Enjoy!

Caroline & Mike | El Matador and UCLA Engagement Lifestyle Session

October 23rd, 2014
share Caroline & Mike | El Matador and UCLA Engagement Lifestyle Session

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!
