few more faves- kelly & blake’s engagement session

I couldn’t help it, I just had to post a few more of my faves from our session a month ago in Balboa Park.

This tree was sooo amazing. The color of the flowers is unreal, but actually real 🙂 (no crazy digital effects here, folks).0905030008_kelly_blake

The simplicity of this shot is nice.

My fav shot of the day- the look on Kelly’s face is just so in love. And the backlighting, how romantic!

My fiance- Albert’s best friend James just got married this weekend. I attended as a guest, but of course had to take some photos. Here are a few:

They had their ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in National City which has a beautiful interior.

Immaculate Conception Church is great for weddings- it has beautiful light, and of course the amazing mural behind the altar.
