Happily Ever After ~ Malibu, CA

All weddings have ups and downs and Emily and Neph's big day was no different. From fainting spells to the photographer getting stung in the face by a wasp, their big day was full of surprises. But even with all the little bumps in the road the sincere love and joy of the day came shining through. From the moment Emily walked out, to the smiles on their faces when they looked at each other, every part of this day was priceless. Congratulations, Emily and Neph, on your first steps together as husband and wife. Enjoy the little things about each other every day and remember how much you love each other. We can't wait to photograph more memories with you both.

Welcome Little Jordyn!! ~ Whittier, CA

Newborn sessions are an absolute joy. The beauty of life and love you see in a newborn are beyond anything you could ever imagine. This past Friday in Whittier, California, Kelly Lynn Jordan Photography had the blessed opportunity to have a session with Little Miss Jordyn. These photographs are definitely among our favorites! Jordyn was particularly peaceful and gentle. She made it through the entire 60 minute session without even crying or using the backgrounds as a diaper! This is truly an incredible feat, and like "Brigadoon", appears only once every 100 years. Jordyn's parents were an absolute joy to work with and we are so glad we were given the opportunity to be a part of this special moment in this family's life.

Welcome Little Olivia! ~ Sacramento, CA

We were privileged to visit Pricila and her husband, Randy, at their new home in Sacramento, CA to photograph their newest family member, Olivia.  What a pleasure to meet this sweet girl! One of the best things about this session was that Pricilla had a clear vision about the décor of the baby's room. This allowed us to create beautiful images while still matching Olivia's newborns outfits and props to her room colors and/or themes. What a great way to decorate your home by using photos of your very own baby. It already looks like Olivia will grow up to be a beauty just like her mother! Help us welcome Olivia into the world:

Fuentes Family ~ Woodland, CA

What a great day!  Beautiful weather, beautiful setting, and three gorgeous women! We had fun at Woodside Park last weekend with the Fuentes girls and their little friends. This family is full of love and are so incredibly vivacious. I think the photos showcase their best qualities, don't you?

Wedding Photography Tips and Tricks: Must-Have Photos!

With all the excitement and stress associated with your wedding day, there are some images that you may not think of as important. I have found that, soon after the wedding, brides wish they had asked me to take this shot or that pose. To avoid after-wedding photo regret, here are some images you thought you might not want, but probably will!

Just Hanging Around!
A pre-dance floor dress is the perfect memory to capture. A personalized-hanger and/or clever backdrop 
will also make this image. 

Stop and Smell the Flowers!
This is a must! Unless you have a bouquet that will last forever this special bundle will soon wither away. The best way to keep it's beautiful color is through an image only your photographer can capture. 

Forget the "Say Cheese"!
No one looks amazing in stiff and stuffy formal portraits - make sure that your photographer captures a few candid moments with everyone being themselves. 

Location Location Location!
This is an awesome one for those of you having a destination wedding. Make sure to think about your wedding destination: Is there a notable landmark? Also, attaching fun props to your wedding theme is a great idea as well.

Intimate Moment with the Man of the Day!
Always make sure to have the photographer capture a few amazing moments with your new husband!

Happily Ever After ~ Irvine, CA

Jenna and Mikey met on a Christian dating site in October of 2014.  Mikey's profile caught Jenna's eye right before she was about to delete her account. She shrugged and figured she would give it one more try. That one more time was all it took for fate to take over. Jenna fell in love with Mikey's love for the Lord and was inspired by the faith he had. They had your typical modern day courtship from text messages to emails to Skype sessions. After about two months of internet courtship Mikey decided to drop everything and make his way to his future bride. From the moment they met they knew that the Lord had placed His seal of approval. So this past Saturday evening we joined them at the Irvine Clubhouse in Irvine, California to congratulate Jenna and Mikey as they exchanged vows and then partied the night away. We have known Jenna for many years and can see the joy that Mikey brings into her life. Excited to see what the future holds for you both!

Baby Baptism ~ Irvine, CA

Last Saturday morning, we were fortunate to be invited to Irvine, California to the St John Neumann Church to photograph the baptism of Garrett and James. Garrett took in all the sights and blissfully soaked up the attention. Little Mr. James, our  home body, wasn't quite sure how he felt. However, when it came time for the ceremony, both of them were peacefully sleeping . The ceremony was a joyous occasion and we wish this lovely family much happiness and blessings.
