Looks like a painting!

Not a bad iPhone pic.

Hey folks! I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and hope that you have an extremely joyous day! May the miracle and hope of this glorious season fill your hearts. Be sure to spend time with the ones you love, and soak it up! It goes by so fast. :) God bless!


Dan & Taylor ~ Click the slideshow!

Here it is folks...Dan & Taylor's wedding slideshow. The ceremony and reception were held at Chaminade in Santa Cruz, but what made this such a special wedding was the absolute love they each had for each other. It's a pure joy to capture real love, and I am blessed to know this couple now as friends! They had the violinist learn how to play "This I Promise You" by 'N Sync, so it's only a fitting song... :) I'm looking forward to their "Day After" bridal session...it's gonna be fun!


Part two...

3 less teeth

Hello my friends! You might find this a funny blog post, but I sit here bored with a swollen cheek. I've finally gone through with it. Since last April I've rescheduled the extraction of my wisdom teeth about 6 times, but yesterday I bit the bullet (haha no pun intended) and got three out of four yanked. Let me tell ya, the being put to sleep was kind of cool yet scary...but the day after is the big doosy. Check out the following iPhone pic...The bottom right is the worst! To those of you who have gotten this done, I now know your pain. Overall though, it's not as bad as I imagined. But it still stinks.

I hope you're having a great week!


Welcome to the Monterey Peninsula!

The shot of the day:
I was driving the opposite way, and had to detour to the beach for this awesome sunset! The weather today was fantastic, and I hope you had the chance to enjoy it. I have to run to a birthday party, but wanted to quickly share this. I hope it brings a smile to your face! Have a great night.


Parade of lights

Here's Jk at the parade waving to everyone. It was so cute cause he'd
get upset if the people wouldn't wave back! :) Of course, the photo
was taken with the iPhone, so no judging! Haha.
