Heres how I see it, there are two types of people in the world: those who like Mexican food and beer, and those who don’t. Erica and Andy are the former, and so am I. I like that. After this shoot we had some good ol’ artery clogging food a.k.a carne asada fries and beer. If you’ve had those two together, then you’ll know exactly how glorious that can be.

I’ve known Erica for a while, we went to college together, and we were also coworkers in Housing. Erica’s known to be loud (in a good way) and very very funny. Then she met her match, both in personality and in funniness. She met Andy… Garcia, oops, I mean Andy Aros, but he kinda looks like Andy Garcia. Right? Andy and I get along well because most of our conversations are about Super Smash Bros (Wii). We had talked about it all day, so finally we played against each other. I won’t tell you who won, but I’ll tell you I was very rusty icon smile Meet Erica and Andy (Engagement)

Our session was shot at the Ponte Winery in Temecula and downtown Riverside.

Presenting Erica and Andy!

Meet Juan, I shot his wedding last year. I”m glad he didn’t injure himself after the splits like Andy Bernard did in “The Office”

Matt and Brittany are one of the easiest couples to work with. Plus they’re a lot of fun! Who ever said that people who work in insurance aren’t fun people? And they’re very very beautiful people!

I had so many great images from this wedding, that just in this post alone are only the photos of Brittany getting ready. There are so many more, that I don’t know what to do with myself.  I’d also like to thank my second shooter Kristen Hanson for shooting this with me.
