I don’t know if it gets much more beautiful than this! We traveled literally from coast to coast to document Carolyn & Cristofer’s beautiful wedding at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle, NY. It was such a gorgeous setting for their wedding, and even though it wasn’t a small wedding it still felt very intimate. They both come from large families, and it really felt like two families joining as one. That’s what a wedding should be! No detail was overlooked, and it all came together beautifully! But the most beautiful of all were the bride and groom. I mean… could they be any cuter? They are so great together, and you can see how happy they are to be husband and wife at last! It was hard to choose photos for the sneak peek, so I hope you don’t mind that I have more than usual! More coming soon!

I was so excited the other day when pinup model Dianna Prince told me that our shoot was featured on the cover of this month’s Vintage Boudoir Magazine! Dianna also does pinup hair styling and runs the Dianna Prince Pinup Academy. She has since relocated to Las Vegas (the perfect place for pinup) but I had fun shooting with her and the other models she worked with. Also featured in this magazine were burlesque dancer Dee V’ous of the Drop Dead Dames Burlesque Revue and the lovely Frawy Ayazo. All 3 ladies are wearing pieces from my Etsy shop, Sweet Bisou! Dianna is wearing a 70s Miss Dior nightgown. Dee V’ous is wearing a vintage nightgown by Harvey Woods. And Frawy is wearing a vintage lace dress (which had a matching bolero). She loved the dress so much that she actually bought it!

Thanks so much to Vintage Boudoir Magazine for the feature, and to Dianna for organizing the shoot and submitting the photos! Make sure to pick up the magazine to see some more lovely vintage boudoir photos!

Before we get into the fall season, I wanted to share with you our final wedding of the summer! Trisha & Patrick came out from Arizona for their beautiful destination wedding in San Diego! They chose Imperial Beach as the setting for their nuptials and were joined by their closest friends and family. Trisha couldn’t hold back her happiness as she walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm with tears in her eyes. They are so incredibly sweet and so much in love! Thank you for coming to San Diego and allowing us to share in this happy day with both of you! We wish you tons of happiness!

Jay Chu Album Release Party

September 19, 2014

Earlier this year, Matt did an album cover shoot with his talented friend and coworker, Jay Chu. Jay is an incredibly talented musician, singer, and songwriter and he is launching his first EP at an album release party this weekend! The show is on Saturday, September 20th at 3:30pm at Tin Roof in the Gaslamp. You can find more information by visiting his website (http://www.jaychumusic.com/). While you’re at it, go ahead and give his page a like: Jay Chu Music Fan Page

The album is called Change, and it features a combination of still images shot by Matt and artwork by Pol Sena using Matt’s shots as inspiration. It’s so awesome to see Jay’s vision come to life, and I love how the photos and artwork represent what the album is about! You can listen to the music on Jay’s website, but hopefully you’ll make it out to his show! If you do, make sure to find us and say hello!

Nattaya & Zachary’s beautiful wedding at the Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center in Fallbrook was perfection! I think it’s safe to say we had a really fun time shooting this one! The details were gorgeous, the wedding party was awesome, and our couple couldn’t have been more in love and excited to marry each other! They were so overwhelmed with emotion that they hugged each other in the middle of the ceremony. It was so sweet!

The reception was one huge party as everyone danced, visited with friends and family, and jumped into the photobooth. We took the newlyweds outside for a few more photos and a very memorable view of the amazing supermoon that graced the sky on this incredibly special day! I don’t see how this day could have been any better. It was amazing from start to finish!
