SHINE the fashion show by Mini & Me Boutique {event}

April 25




Mini & Me Boutique, located in Scripps Ranch, hosted a Fashion Show benefitting AJ’s Kids Crane for Rady’s Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Susan Swafford, the owner of Mini & Me Boutique knows all to well the importance of the toys that are administered to the children at Rady’s. Her son was a patient not too long ago and was diagnosed with brain tumor. Now, with the cancer at bay, Susan supports the Children’s Hospital in any way she can.

The SHINE fashion show was particularly special because she invited several patients and doctors from the oncology unit to be a part of the show. The kids and adults had a great time showing off the latest fashions and doing a twirl on the runway.

La Jolla Rough Water Swim {event}

April 17


Swim in the ocean? Me? No, not me! I don’t think I could swim a few feet let alone a mile. The La Jolla Rough Water Swim is an annual event that takes place in the La Jolla, CA cove. It is an impressive event, with over 2000 participants of all ages. We were asked by an out-of-state family to film their daughter and her friend as they braved the water and swam the mile race. This event has become a tradition for this family and they make the trip every year.

Standing at the top of the cove you can see the hundreds of swimmers entering the water and disappearing into little specks of color. All you can see is their swim caps until they swim back to shore, racing through the sand to the finish line. Even if you are not a swimmer, the Rough Water Swim is a great day of family fun with lots to see.

Here is a short recap of what you will experience.

Twin Oaks Garden Estate Wedding, Emily & Cody {highlights}

April 15

Tucked away in San Marcos, CA is a quaint garden filled with full grown trees and flowers. The Twin Oaks House and Garden Estate is a perfect mix of a victorian school house and modern wedding venue. The bridal suite is beautiful and decorated with sparkling chandeliers, plush sofas and items from another era. You will feel like you took a step back in time.

The Groom, Cody, is a fellow wedding professional and I was excited film one of the most important days of his life. Afterall, being a photographer, he knows the importance of documenting life events. Although it was a very hot day, everything turned out beautifully. We also had the pleasure of working with Hoffer Photography. They took AMAZING photos of Cody and Emily.

Coronado Beach Proposal, San Diego

July 1

Shooting a proposal film is no easy task, but we are always up for the challenge. When Michael contacted us to film this special moment, we were more than honored. He was a true rockstar in his planning and we were very impressed with his proposal ideas. His soon to be bride, Jackie, is a very special lady and we learned why on the proposal day.

Set on the beach right next to the Coronado Ferry Landing, Michael told Jackie that there were going to be setting up for an engagement party. He had a special blanket created with pictures from dating, her favorite ice cream shipped in especially for her and her family waiting at the end of the dock to watch the event. All in all, this was a very special occasion. Watch to see her reaction… we just adore this couple!




We also want to give a special shout out to Stephina Photography. They were there with us to capture those special moments in pictures. If you are considering a proposal in the near future, make sure to document it! You’ll want to remember every detail.


Congrats to Michael and Jackie!!!
