Bianca + Michael :: Mexican/Filipino Desert Wedding

When Bianca first contacted me about her + Michael’s Mexican/Filipino Desert-themed California wedding, I thought ‘I have to shoot this wedding!’. Thankfully my dreams came true :).

They did such a fantastic time executing the theme. The details and colors had me swooning! The only thing that was easier to photograph were the bride and groom themselves.

There love for one another is so evident, it definitely made my job an easy one :). On top of that, they treated me and my second shooter for the day (Brian of Pixel That Photography) with such kindness and gratitude. It’s couples like them that make my job everything that it is.

Bianca+Micahel, congrats again on your new life together. It was an honor to share in your day with you. I hope these images allow you to relive the joy and beauty of it all.

I could not get enough of this girl. She radiates joy!

One of my favorite bridal images…EVER! Bianca, you are contagious :)

Love Brian’s image of the church on the right below :)

I could not get over the cuteness of these kiddos!

I was so grateful that Brian was able to capture this series below.

Best bridesmaids dresses…EVER!

This ring shot? It makes me swoon. Thank you Brian and thank you 100 2.8 macro!

Romantic much??

Their peach and mint desert-themed details stole my heart…

Amazing live music!

Even the bride and groom joined in!

    What a beautiful wedding. I love how the Mexican and Filipino details mix together so well, but I suppose it makes sense since both cultures are evolved forms of Spanish culture. I can’t wait to blog this.
