Rolling Hills Country Club Bar Mitzvah

Dan’s 13th birthday celebration at the Rolling Hills Country Club was absolute blast. The entire country club was put to good use, from the greens to the clubhouse, all the rooms were in full swing. From providing exciting and numerous games for the kids, to the dance floor with DJ and wall to wall candy bar, to the main dining hall with 5 piece band, to the photobooth guys.

Dan’s Bar Mitzvah was my first in recent memory, and I had as much fun as the kids. Having booked a couple of Bat Mitzvah’s for this Summer I tagged along with Eric of EHG Photography for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah refresher.

Your Wedding Day Magazine Launch Party

Your Wedding Day is throwing another over the top incredible launch party. These parties are absolutely breathtaking. Expectations are high and I’m positive YWD will deliver. The over the top Launch party at the Ebell was a site to behold. From the Marie Antoinette themed main ball room to the Indian room complete with henna artists, to the Euro Discotech room with live band, and rockin’ photobooth. My heart is already excited just thinking about it. Sarah of Fino Photography and I are going on Wednesday, Feb. 24th. I’ll be bringing one of my cameras along to take pictures of the magnificent event. Check back later this week to see what it looked like.

Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse Wedding Photography : Dawn + Ben

at the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse was filled with loving family and friends. The weather was on our side without a drop of rain.  Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse is the last bathhouse built in California.  Back in the day people would work in downtown and take the red train down to Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse and use the facilities for their weekend at the Shore.  Please click here to view the slideshow.
