Rebecca and Spencer ~ A Wedding in Fallbrook

He’s from back East, and she’s from the West coast, but God had planned that the meet during the one year that Rebecca attended Biola University, the school Spencer had chosen a year earlier. While Rebecca wouldn’t spend her four years of schooling there, two schools and 50 miles of distance wasn’t enough to turn their budding relationship into a distant one. In fact, it only made their love for each other stronger.

While clouds and rain greeted their wedding day, it wasn’t enough to dampen the joy that was jumping from Rebecca’s brilliant and joyful smile. What’s a little rain when you’ve got a lifetime together? Spencer was as cool as the day and the two, along with a hundred of their friends and family, soaked in a day of laughter, love and good cheer.

It was a privilege to be part of it, and to get to document their day. Here are a few of my favorites from the day at the Pala Mesa Resort. Enjoy!

Rebecca and Spencer ~ Engagement

I’ve known Rebecca for going on ten years now, in fact, she was one of my first senior photo shoots back in the day! She’s all grown up and fallen in love with Spencer and the two are counting the days till their January wedding!

They met on the Biola University campus in La Mirada, during the one year Rebecca got to attend the university. They were on the track and cross country teams but then God called Becca to finish her degree at Cal Baptist in Riverside. Time and distance did nothing but establish a stronger love and bond between the two. Their relationship has matured and grown through the years and is a fun one to watch from a distance.

It was a FUN photo shoot! They were naturals together and in front of the camera. We walked through the Biola campus where they met then headed over to a local park to finish up. Can’t wait ’till January!

A Pt. Loma Wedding – Sarah and John

On a bluff overlooking the vast Pacific, before a crowd of friends and family they gave their vows.  The size of their promise was only outdone by the bigness of the ocean over their shoulders.  And there, on a patch of grass hidden on the campus of Pt. Loma Nazarene College in San Diego, Sarah and Jon promised to each other to love and to cherish until death.  The solemnity of the moment was only broken by the occasional laughter and smile that revealed the joy that could be found laced into the beauty of the moment.

It was a beautiful wedding that seemed just right to celebrate their love and commitment to each other. Here are a few of their images that tell the story of the day.


Dad and Sarah busted a groove. It was cool!

Courtney and Jason ~ Baby Coming!

Last July I had the opportunity to document in photos, the wedding of Jason and Courtney! What a delight! And now, with an arrival set for August, the two are anticipating their first baby! What a blessing!

Here’s a few images from our time together, documenting the impending arrival of their Little One.

JD ~ Senior Year

The sports fan in me draws me to athletes … I’m enamored by their skill, impressed by their discipline and willingness to work hard. For me, to be called “an athlete” is the highest of compliments.

May I introduce you to an athlete named JD? He’s got “stud” written all over him — a top football player, All-CIF in wrestling and then a three-event competitor in track and field. Yea, that’s right, a three-sport letterman in the 21st Century! Pretty cool.

I hope you enjoy the images!
