I had the privilege of taking portraits of the students at MorningStar Christian Academy and those with the Hands of Grace Christian Support Group. This is a great bunch of kids from all over the Temecula Valley, and range from kindergarten to high school seniors.

Here’s a random sampling of shots in no particular order:

Sibling shots are always fun to do!

Some camera/shoot information: All of the individual portraits were taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark II and 85mm f/1.2L lens. When viewed at full size, the clarity and sharpness of these images are simply amazing. The sibling shots were taken with the same camera, and a 24-70 f/2.8L lens. The backdrop is by Silverlake and the lighting was done using Alien Bees.

Megan and Matt got married!

September 19, 2009

Megan and Matt were married on a very warm September 5th at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, CA. This is a beautiful venue with waterfalls, arches, a gazebo and a very impressive staircase. Their wedding was a beautiful combination of American and Filipino traditions–some of the barongs the men were wearing were very ornate and intricate. After the ceremony, Matt changed out of his tuxedo jacket and white shirt and put on a beautiful blue barong…you’ll see it in the photos below.

Here is a short slide show of some of the wedding images set to music

Anyway, on to the photos:
