Parquita and Mike  are some of the most photogenic clients I’ve had; they have this cool collected confidence in front of the camera.   More than most people, they are able to inhabit their own little private space and have authentic moments without even seeming aware that a camera is there.  Their first dance to me was illustrative of their wedding and their relationship.  While they were in a room full of people, their seemed to be a force field around them, making this incredibly intimate extended moment out on the dancefloor.  Thank you guys so much for inviting me into your lives.  It has been a blessing to get to know you.

When Mike decided to propose, he put off buying this Tivol watch, and got Parquita a Tivol diamond ring instead.  She surprised him on the wedding day by getting him that watch he thought he gave up.

Parquita admires her brother in law a lot, and asked him to walk her down the aisle.  Here he waits as she comes out of her dressing room.  The next two photos are Jewel’s
