Leica + Ryan | Bali Hai, San Diego

Wed, Apr 6 2011 02:47 | Permalink We met Leica at a Bridal Bazaar just two months before their wedding. When we met them in our office we were blown away by how nice they were and Bob was excited to work with them at the newly remodeled Bali Hai!

Their morning ceremony was bright and colorful, a really joyous occasion. The Barongs (traditional formal Filipino shirt) worn by the groomsmen looked great in the sunlight, accented by the purple of the bridesmaids dresses and flowers. They ended their celebration with a gorgeous dove release and boated off to their new life together :)

Thanks Leica and Ryan! Hope you enjoy your photo preview!

I was blown away by these two photos of Leica. She looks amazing









Leica was actually named after a high end old school film camera! Her father enjoyed photography and loved the camera enough to name his daughter after it! Our photographer, Bryan has a Leica camera sticker on his iPhone....we thought it was an ironic coincidence.

Kami + Christian - SURPRISE PROPOSAL SHOOT

Mon, Feb 14 2011 07:31 | Permalink Some days I just absolutely love my job.

Christian contacted us a few weeks ago to do a photo session with him and his girlfriend, Kami, while she was visiting him from Utah. As the session drew near Bob and I started to suspect he was going to propose during the shoot, but we didn't say anything. Sure enough as Bob and Bryan were setting up and Kami finished getting ready, Christian took me aside and pulled out a ring box!!!! He asked me to pick a great spot and we arranged a signal (talk about pressure). I tried to keep my composure, but I was definitely shaking, over-talking with excitement and fighting back tears. I don't want to say too much more or spoil the surprise in what you're about to watch, but I'm SO SO excited for Kami and Christian to see this slide show and share this special moment with their families!





About the video: Tara (Bob's wife), being the genius that she is, sent me a text message during the shoot. I normally ignore my phone on the job, but she called and texted so many times I thought it was a serious flood/fire/death emergency. Her text read: "I put the video camera in the car just in case he proposes to her :)"  At that point the video camera was too far away and I couldn't (quickly) find a way to get the camera. But her text came just at the right moment. SO, I essentially forced Bryan into switching from photo to video mode on his camera while Bob and I snapped away. SURPRISE!

Thank you both for allowing us to take part in such a special and important moment. This was a first for us!
