I’m so excited to share with you guys Part 2 of Morgan & Matt’s elegant country club wedding! The team of vendors and designs that all came together were so much fun to work with and photograph.

Jared looooooves his wife, Veronica, and for their 2 year anniversary he got creative! I received an email from him about a month ago saying he’d like to surprise his wife, who had been following my work for 2 years, with a photo shoot! I absolutely love when this happens and quickly created a beautiful custom gift certificate for him to frame and present to her on their trip….and 3 weeks later finally got to meet his beautiful wife for their Anniversary session! You could quickly see the chemistry between these two and what a special time in their lives that I feel so blessed to capture for them! Jared – high five for being husband of the year and Veronica – thank you for all of your sweet comments- it was such a great afternoon getting to know you two and happy anniversary!!

Wow. Yesterday was our last day of 3 traveling with 91 WWII veterans from Bakersfield to Washington DC for their Honor Flight to visit their WWII Memorial. I know the guys were all ready last night to get home, see their families and sleep in their own beds but also were so humbled to be able to go on this journey and make so many new friends with other service members. After being awake yesterday for 22 hours and being by their sides for 3 days, I would have to agree! It was the most memorable, exhausting, emotional trip I’ve taken in a while and I wouldn’t trade those 3 days for anything. I feel so blessed to have been asked to photograph this journey and after getting to know many of these heros, I think I may have taken away more than I gave. Their stories are incredible and it was an honor just to sit and talk with them and capture their emotions at each stop in our travels. I hope some of these photos and the ones to come give you a glimpse at how special this organization is…please, if you can donate or attend an Honor Flight in your area (there’s 100 hubs around the country!) PLEASE give!! If you want our local Kern County hub to receive your donations, please call 544-VETS !
I’ll have all the photos up soon (hopefully next week) and will be posting the gallery link in as many places as I can (http://www.JFPClients.com/HonorFlightKernCounty), but today….after some much needed rest, I want to share just a few photos and Ch. 17′s video of our amazing welcome home last night at the airport!!

Hi everyone! Today’s blog is short and sweet…it’s 6:30am here on the East Coast and I’m gearing up for Day 2 of our Kern County Honor Flight!! We met and traveled with 91 WWII and Vietnam Veterans yesterday at 6am from Bakersfield…landed in DC just as the sun was setting. It’s already been such a blessing meeting these men, hearing some of their stories and photographing their arrival departure and arrival. Today, we have the opportunity to visit many of their memorials and DC monuments and I cannot wait!
Thank you Kern County for an AMAZING send off – we’ll see you tomorrow!!!
