Salt of the Earth

Matthew 18: 2-6

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

I've been photographing the Vasquez children for the last 9 years, what a gift to see them grow. It's an honor to spend time with all seven and seeing their unique personalities shine through. Their aunt Norma had commissioned me, we worked together to make her vision come true. Grateful!

Madi + Ryan Engagement Photography | Disneyland Resort | Anaheim

When I heard the news of Madeleine and Ryan getting married last December, I was thrilled and in tears.  It began February 2016 with a phone call.  Madi called me to check in & follow-up about the self development courses I had committed to, we connected immediately and talked for an hour.  What we talked about was not chit chatting, it was getting to the meat and potatoes of life: the nitty gritty of emotions and what she was currently dealing with.  We both were in tears and laughing, it was crazy cool how the conversation evolved and little did we know that after our talk that she would be talking to her future husband.  

I'm grateful to visually share the love story of Madi & Ryan's engagement in one of their favorite places on the planet: Disneyland.  Being with them all day photographing, eating and going on rides was amazing.  I felt like a kid again.  Lots of fun, play & ease during our togetherness.  I am sharing a wedding verse from the Bible...
