Welcome to the Quinceañera!

We had the great fortune of being able to shoot a Quinceañera yesterday and what a spectacular event. It was our first and we hope it is not our last! We were welcomed in like family and I have to say thank you to Brian, Silvia, Gerardo and Melissa for being wonderful hosts. Not only did they choose us to be the photographers, but they treated us to a fabulous dinner and they allowed us to be free when it came to photographing the entire day. Kymberli and I both got some fantastic shots. She posted some great ones on her blog.

Not only was it our first Quinceañera, but we were also given strict instructions by the father at the church. "No flash, no walking around and I will tell you if you are in the way." The spot I had to choose was with the light from the windows coming directly at me, so I improvised.

Then we got to head to Rancho Capistrano. What a beautiful place for the dinner and party. Great place for photographs, too. The backdrop was beautiful and the gorgeous family made our job easy!

Here's a sneak peak at what I captured yesterday. So much fun...

I LOVE almost all of these shots, babe. The one of Melissa outside is so pretty! Also love the one of her standing up in church, the one with her friends and the boys outside for portraits. Can't wait to see the rest!
