I have received over ten inquiries about the very special 10/10/10 date over the past year, and I really feel bad for not being able to fulfill every one of them.  But I ended up reuniting with a very special couple – Krystle & Jake.  I originally shot their elopement beach wedding at Point Dume, Malibu last year, and it turns out to be one of the most special weddings this year which brought me and Shirley to Arizona.

It all started back in 2009 when I stumbled across Krystle’s posting on craigslist.  She and Jake were looking for a wedding photographer to take pictures for their Malibu beach elopement wedding.  I’ve always loved the beach and I replied to her posting along with my portfolio.  Out of the many, many candidates I was the lucky chosen one to be a part of their very special day.  I’m still very thankful til this date and this really is one special wedding with many memorable moments I’ll never forget.

Fast forward to 10.10.10.  We started that morning walking into the bridal room with Krystle doing her own makeup while she’s having her hair done!  That’s not what you’d see everyday… but Krystle herself is an awesome makeup artist herself as seen inhttp://www.makeupbykolor.com!

Hmm… with a bunch of cool looking models what would I do with them?

Again, I’m just very thankful and honored to be a part of their wedding.  Having the opportunity to witness love as events unfold and being able to capture these precious moments is something that I treasure.  Congratulations again Krystle and Jake!
