Becky + Francisco ~ A Bruin Kinda Love | Fullerton, CA Wedding

People always laugh when they learn of the internal strife between Tommy and I. He’s a UCLA Bruin, I’m a USC Trojan. Blasphemous, I know. 😀 But like PB&J, cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, and  cake and  … more cake (what? I told you I have a cake addiction), we click, we work. It works … despite our school allegiances 😉 Perhaps because we’ve come to an understanding — I get to run my mouth during football season, and he gets to own basketball season. Which of course means, I am currently having a ball!! *HOLLA* 🙂

Well a few months ago we had the pleasure of documenting a very special wedding celebration of one of Tommy’s dearest longtime friends, Becky. But unlike Tommy and I, she happened to find the love of her life on the same team. Yes, Becky + Francisco are both UCLA Bruins, which is why it was only fitting that we shot their engagement session on the Westwood campus as well. And if you follow my blog, you know that Becky actually gave us our first shot at documenting a celebration event a little over a year ago when we captured Francisco’s mom’s surprise birthday party.  That festive celebration was full of love, incredible energy and awesome dancing, so we knew their wedding would be equally epic. And of course, it did not disappoint …

Here’s a few images from this lovely couple’s Wedding Day at The Summit House in Fullerton. Being a part of a couple’s Big Day is truly a blessing, but when we get the chance to capture a friend’s Wedding Day, it is extra special …

And yep, these little guys took part in the “Getting Ready” festivities too 🙂

Have I told you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE couples who opt to do a “First Look”? It truly makes for some of the most intimate and wonderful photographs. Francisco was so eager and excited to see his beautiful bride and his reaction to her was priceless …

I truly love this moment <3 …

Remember what I said about the dancing? Need I say more …

This was our first wedding with a sparkly exit, and I certainly hope and pray it’s not our last ~ truly a gorgeous way to bid the happy couple farewell!!!

Becky + Francisco, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us our first big shot over a year ago and of course for giving us the wonderful opportunity to be a part of this special day in your lives. You two are wonderful people, but together you are even more incredible. The love you have for one another is evident in the smiles and laughter you share together and it’s clear to see you two are the perfect pair. We’re blessed to be able to call you both friends and wish you the best that love and life have to offer *Hugs* and much love to you both!!!

    I was recommended by friend and coworker, Jeremy Tu.

    I’m curious about your travel pricing. We’re getting married at a renovated water mill building in Beacon, NY (an hour and half from NYC). We’re hoping to have a simple, but elegant wedding with lots of friends and family and FUN. When looking for a photographer, we’re hoping to hire someone (and an assistant) for the day to shoot and SHARE our celebration with us. We’d like high-res edited photos and an engagement/feeler shoot.

    Look forward to hearing from you, Emily
