Ruche | Downtown Fullerton Vintage Styled Bridal Shoot

Earlier this month I had the dreamy opportunity of shooting a styled vintage bridal shoot for Ruche in their new 38,000 sq. ft. warehouse location in downtown Fullerton. Ruche is one of my favorite independent online boutiques that features affordable vintage inspired dresses and everything else in between from shoes to sweaters – all with a modern touch. Established just four years ago in 2008 by husband and wife team Mai and Josh Olivo, the business all began with Mai’s hobby of selling vintaged inspired beaded sandals on Ebay. As the fashion for those faded, Mai continued the hunt for new items she adored. What began as a hobby after their 8-5 jobs, has quickly grown into a dream for the two today. I love when dreams come true! Today they are able to support small boutique brands and indie designers. You can view their newest Lookbook here featuring their vintage Bridal Collection.

I will confess that I have been eyeballing their collection since wedding planning days so when I was invited by Ning to join this special styled shoot, I did a somersault in the air! Not to mention the fact that I have been fantasizing myself shooting in a warehouse in an discrete location for quite some time. Alas, I am so honored to be featuring their clothing collection in my work.   Major props to Ning, Brett and Steph who made this happen. It was an incredible honor shooting alongside you all. Thank you so much for including me in this sweet opportunity.

Tanya | Los Angeles Bridal Photography

I’m finally posting the final Part 5 of the bridal themed shootout as promised, which was my first glimpse at Moroccan charm. I was apart of a recent shootout of about 40 photographers rotating in groups of 7 or 8 as we photographed about 5 models posing as brides. This was a really great experience being challenged to direct in an environment with tight time constraints and squeezing among others to get my shot in. We had Tanya modeling for us as our Moroccan bride. Tanya had a beautiful grace about her and though I caught her at the very end of the day I was able to capture some of these keepers. I love being surprised over and over again at the beautiful shots that are unveiled during post processing time. As the shadows were dancing away while I took these, I was able to capture the light bouncing off of her hair and the last few lingering sun rays of the southern california air filtering into my lens. Pure beauty.

Thanks for stopping by! Check back next week for my first newborn session!! :-)

Ami | Southern California Bridal Photoshoot

Part trois of the bridal shootout ensues as promised! For those of you who have not seen the part 1 post, I had the opportunity of shooting at a shootout featuring 5 models modeling as international brides back in October. I have been waiting to post these for awhile. I’ve just been a bit busier than usual.

The thing about this shoot was that no matter what angle I shot in, the lighting just danced off of her skin so elegantly. That and not to mention, Ami is probably one of the most photogenic women I have ever shot. With the help of the location, we were able to pull off the look with a stone background, garden, pots and stairs.

Ami is also the first Indian bride I have had the honors to shoot. If there’s one thing to know about me, I love cultures and photographing the intricate details in them. Ami’s dress is a beautiful one and I wanted to be sure I got all of the details. Thank you Ami for allowing me to photograph you. Enjoy!

Sara | San Juan Capistrano Bridal Shoot

I won’t lie, taking these stylized bridal shots with Sara modeling for us probably summed up to be one of my favorite sessions done to date. Part Trois of the International Brides series ensues. I had the opportunity of shooting with about 40 other photographers, rotating in groups of about 7-8 with each model. What I love capturing the most are the emotions of it all.  Elegance and poise were imbued into every shot taken of her. Not only was the lighting stunningly perfect, I loved the purity of her gorgeous white gown topped off with the poofiness of the silk chiffon, mixed in with her reddish locks. As always – way too many good ones to choose from!
