Marizol's Quinceanera-LA, California

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to travel to California to document a dear girl's transformation into a young woman. I first met Marizol 2 years ago when she came to visit family (her aunt is a zumba friend ;) We joked around then about me flying out to cali to photograph her Quinceanera. Little did I know that a little joking around would actually come true :D So...the boys and I flew out last week and not only did I get the chance to photograph this amazing event, but I finally got to meet a dear friend I have known for years but had never actually met in person. AND we spent almost 5 days together with my two boys and her two boys. You can't even imagine what an amazing week it was, it didnt last nearly long enough (Mililani I still miss you!!!)

Anyway..the day started out with a little hair and makeup prep

The ceremony was very touching, I love how she is escorted down the aisle by her Chambelan de honor

My favorite part of the ceremony was when Marizol offered a bouquet of flowers and sang to the Virgin, she has a beautiful voice

Check her out, so beautiful!

No party is complete without the pinata :)

Again with her Chambelan Edward :)
With her Damas!
With her mom and dad :)
The reception was amazing, the food yummmmmy,lol. My favorite part was when she hopped up on stage and sang with her dad <3
Now thats a party group!! Thanks again guys, it was an awesome experience!!

Heather and David :)

ok so you may recognize Heather, Ive been sharing images of her for years as the model for Lisa Welch Designs. I have known Heather for awhile since we used to work together at the old GS *flashing my gang sign here*..ok yeah not really,lol. I couldnt be more happy and excited for her to get married! We had a lot of fun with their epics at Wegerzyn. Its quickly become a favorite park of mine to shoot this year. After park pics we snuck in a little urban scenery at the Oregon District. David is great, especially for Heather, so I am very excited for their wedding next year!

Brittney and Brian :)

They are gettin hitched really soon and I couldnt be more excited! I just love these two, they are so much fun :) We went out to The Willow Tree Inn, one of my favorite places in Tipp, and then spent some time on my "turf" lol, in the downtown area . Cant wait til the wedding! <3
