Sammy and Chelsie married April 22, 2017 in downtown Bakersfield, at St. Francis Church. The high school sweethearts along with their  family and friends present to witness their beautiful new union as husband and wife said their vows in a beautiful traditional ceremony. The bridesmaids wore long fitted light coral gowns and the groomsmen wore grey hues with their tuxes. We traveled to historic downtown Bakersfield for bridal party photos and The Padre, the weather was beautiful and the reception to follow was held at The Westchester. The couple danced, shared toasts and mingled with guests all night and it was such a pleasure to capture! Enjoy highlights from The lovely Morales wedding. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and love!

The Fuller wedding was such a dream to capture. I am a lover of all things vintage, farmhouse inspired touches and of course detail. Natalie the lovely bride had all of those components included in her wedding day.

Brian and Natalie said I do at Rankin Ranch, Ca on an April afternoon. Light showers off and on throughout the day and even ceremony (hilarious pics below by the way) forced us to relocate inside the venues rec hall but that did not put a dent in plans, the clouds parted just in time and the most beautiful sunlight shined down during photos of the bride and groom. I love my clients dearly, I enjoy telling their love stories and it was such an honor to take part in their big day! Within you both a lifetime of happiness Fuller Family!

The Jimenez wedding was such a pleasure to be apart of. I have really enjoyed getting to know Jerry and Raquel over the last year since they booked me for their big day. They’re such well rounded, kind and loving people, it shines through their photos & everyone had such wonderful well wishes and memories to share for the pair at their big day.

Jerry and Raquel married on April 1, 2017 on a beautiful spring day in downtown Bakersfield,Ca at St. Francis church. Surrounded by their loving family and friends they said I do in a traditional Catholic styled ceremony followed by an amazing night of celebrating at JC’s Place . We loved capturing your day Jerry and Raquel, you guys are amazing together and we wish you and your family a lifetime of happiness, health and love, congrats!

Clinton and Julia’s love story was really special to capture for me personally because I have known Julia since she was just ten years old. I have watched her grow into the beautiful woman she is today and Clinton has played a significant role in Julia’s story. They both compliment and bring out the best in one another, truly and honestly they are the perfect match.

They have a long history, their love story dates back to teen years (as in Junior high) and throughout High School. Like a true fairytale ending the pair found their way back to each other and married on March 5th, 2017 in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Bakersfield, Ca. This special day was many years in the making and it was so beautiful to capture. Enjoy a highlight of their amazing wedding day! Wishing Mr. & Mrs. Wills a lifetime of happiness and love!

It all started with an elopement in Vegas (that I had the honor of photographing) with these two lovebirds.

Elvis walked Heather down the aisle as well as serenaded the newlyweds as they said their I do’s. A  few short months later Heather and Christain had a reception for family and friends back in their hometown to attend. The chic Padre Hotel was the reception location located in downtown Bakersfield. Mint design along with the Heather the bride styled gorgeous details from beautiful florals, tall candles and gold accents for a romantic evening. Heather wore two beautiful wedding gowns one for the beginning of the evening and one for the reception festivities, her sweet girls matching their beautiful Mom. The pair celebrated an evening with close family and friends and danced the night away, enjoy a few highlights from their amazing reception!
