the torres’ | family | san juan capistrano

how adorable of a family are the torres’?? i had captured photos of them as a family of three and this year, they added a new family member! i love seeing how families grow and am so grateful to see the little ones grow into their personalities. little aven isn’t as little anymore and has the cutest personality and is such a good big brother to baby asher. asher is one of the happiest babies i’ve met and his chunkiness is amazing…i just wanna bite him!

here are some of my favorite captures of the torres’ family portrait lifestyle session in san juan capistrano:

thy + jimmy | wedding | historic old towne orange + royal restaurant

thy & jimmy’s wedding was such a fun celebration, especially since it was on 4th of july. thy & jimmy had a traditional vietnamese tea ceremony in the morning before the church ceremony to introduce each other families & welcome each other. during the tea ceremony, jimmy’s family presents thy’s family with gifts that were brought in by his family members & thy & jimmy also pray to the ancestors. afterwards, there is a luncheon for both families until they head to the ceremony at la purisima church.

the beautiful reception was held at the royal restaurant in westminster. jimmy has mc’d a few weddings for friends and family and hosted a game during the reception and also presented his new bride a surprise special rendition of “because of you” by ne-yo that lead into their first dance. the celebration continued with an after party at a nearby dance club. it was truly a night to remember. here are my favorite images from thy & jimmy’s beautiful wedding!
