wedding albums :: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can’t even begin to tell you how giddy I am right now over these new studio albums that arrived in the mail today!!!! As soon as I saw the box, I grabbed my camera and the albums had their very own photo shoot. The albums are from KISS and their philosophy at KISS is all about simplicity. Simple is Hot they say and I couldn’t agree more. I know that if I have too many choices I get way overwhelmed and can’t make any decision. So for my clients I offer three sizes of albums: 4×4 (the mini album that fits in your purse!), 10×10 or 12×12

First I’ll show you the 10×10 in Forbidden Green – because you know how much I love green, don’t you?:

All pages are printed on Fuji Crystal Archival paper that will never discolor – unlike the arm of my chair. I didn’t even know that stain was there till after I put the pictures on my computer. What do you think – lipstick? punch? frosting? sharpie? blood? We may never know =)

Check out the no-cut, lay-flat binding:

Look how thick the pages are:

They come with a super duper cute dust cover:

And here’s the 4×4 mini in Virgin White:

Isn’t it cute?!?!?

And here are the colors the albums come in:

Smouldering Brown,  Sultry Blue, Virgin White, Passion Pink, Forbidden Green, Voluptuous Black & Redlight Red

Susie - Michelle,
I want to get married again just so that you can take the pictures and make one of those albums for me. Maybe for our 25th anniversary…

Rachel :: Spirit Academy High School Senior Photographer

Seriously, how cute is Rachel?!? We had so much fun hanging out the other day taking some fun senior portraits. Rachel plays guitar, sings and is so sweet.

Then she helped me with a little project (more details to come) I have in the works for my favorite town….can you guess what town?????

Judy Bowman - Love these shots you took of me and my girls – what an amazing way to commemorate their special days. You truly have a gift. Can’t wait until you shoot Amber’s wedding!!!

Alison + Paul :: Rancho Bernardo & The Palms in Miramar San Diego, CA :: Wedding Photographer

Alison and Paul are an amazing Godly couple and I had the pleasure of capturing their special day for them. Alicia Martinez did Alison’s makeup and Bekie Edwards did her hair.  They choose to do a first look (and I’ll love them forever for it!) and it was so sweet to witness. Then their ceremony was held at Lifebridge church in Rancho Bernardo.  The church burned down in 2007 during the Witch Creek fires that destroyed so many wonderful things.  The doors of the newly reconstructed church building opened recently and this was the very first wedding!!! It was super emotional – especially for Pastor Tim who has watched these two grow up and serve God wholeheartedly and then fall in love =) And the reception was at the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar at The Palms restaurant and Golf Course. I love it when a reception has dancing and people actually dance – what a fun group of people! Thank you so much Alison and Paul for letting me be a part of your day!

Fiona - Michelle,

I absolutely LOVE your photography. I find myself browsing your site on a regular basis. Tim and Natalie’s photos came out so well as did Paul and Alison’s. :)

Hopefully someday you can do the same for me!

Best,
Fiona

Those photos are so amazing! I cried at the “first glance” photos. They so captured the moment. Thank you so much.

Suzy Ubry - Michelle,

To say these photos are AMAZING is an understatement! Even the hillside pics at LifeBridge looked great … wow! So many favorites to pick from, but I did manage to see one that I love the most.

Did not get to attend the reception on Miramar, but your pictures definitely told the story of how much fun everyone had.

Thank you for such great work and for sharing some of Paul and Alison’s special day with the rest of us.
