I COUNTED ONLY 14 GUESTS!!!
The headcount went from 450 to 14 guests at his ranch. Una carnita asada, some drinks and REAL conversations about life. This here wedding is already a top 10 wedding for me because of how it made me feel..... like FAMILY!!
This just further proves that it doesn't matter where you're at.... IT'S WHO YOU'RE WITH!! ... I truly believe that!!
THE QUINCE is cancelled.
First COVID... then both grandparents passed away within 2 weeks. It's been a rough 2020 for the family.
It rained all day on shoot day EXCEPT the two hours we shot! I'm a huge believer in signs! You already know why I had her look up. 👵🏼👴🏻🙏🏻

Mom said "She's going to be wearing a black Quinceañera dress, and the reason we came to you[from Houston] is because we would like something different. :) "
OMG... say no more!!!! :) One of my favorite sessions ever!!!!! Thank ya'll for showing love!! :)
"I'M SO SORRY, I'm not available to shoot her quinceañera." I replied back. [UGHHHH... I hate sending back those email replies.]
Mom kindly asked if I would at least shoot babygirl's portraits....... "YOU DANG RIGHT I WILL!!" I replied. lol

THE VENUE doesn't matter....
I have been entrusted to create beautiful images and capture the most beautiful moments! I NEVER stop chasing the story. THIS is how I rock out! :)

THE SHOOT was over... we were walking back to our cars and dad asked if I could take just one pic with his truck.
... SURE!! [I ran around the truck, placed 3 lights under the truck and handed him one so that he could point it to her]
He wanted something quick and simple... but that's not how I roll! lol! Behind the scenes video in comments!
// SHARE and TAG someone planning a quinceañera.
THEY WERE KIDS!!!! ... they weren't allowed to be dating, talk on the phone or even have social media. lol
To make things even worse, they lived in two separate cities. She in Dallas and he in East Texas.
BUTTTTTTTT.... they had a mutual friend who would travel back and forth to East Texas often... so for the next couple of years THAT would be the only way they would communicate.......BY HANDWRITTEN LETTERS!!!!!
That's so dang cool!! Truth is, some things are just meant to be!!!
F E A R
I GET TO the location early to scout, I make my way over to this spot and tell myself.. "THERE IS NO WAY THEY'LL AGREE TO THIS...." The water is freezing, the rocks are mossy and slippery...
"The best part of life is on the other side of fear
The best part of life is on the other side of fear
The best part of life is on the other side of fear"... I keep telling myself over and over and over.
"The last spot is over there on that rock, are y'all down?" I asked. With out hesitation...
"BRO, LET'S DO IT!" he said!!
The best part of life is on the other side of fear... BE FEARLESS!! :)
EXIST IN PHOTOS [[Please Read]]
THE WORLD was jolted yesterday with the news of Kobe Bryant's untimely passing. I honestly can't remember when someone's tragic death touched so many lives in just a short amount of time.
Other than being a mega badass on the court, the dude was probably a better father to his girls... and THAT'S the Kobe that touched most of us. The most heart wrenching part of yesterday was seeing all the images of he and his baby girl Gigi. Images of both of them in the gym, the arena, the car, taking selfies... THAT IS ALL that's left now. He will forever be 41 and she 13 in these images.
IF THIS isn't a wake up call that you need to EXIST in PHOTOS, I'm not sure what is. I'm able to speak on this subject because I see it every weekend. So many of us refuse to take pictures because we're self conscious of the way we look.....NO ONE will ever care that you had a double chin, had no make up, a beer belly or were not photogenic. NO ONE will give a shhhhhtt about any of that when you're gone and they're looking for pictures of you.
EXIST IN PHOTOS... this is the best gift you can leave your family.
Our deepest condolences to the Bryant family and to the families of the other victims. Que DIOS lo tenga en su Santa Gloria.
ALMOST 6 MONTHS since I last checked in here on FACEBOOK.
I'M BACK!!! ... As you can imagine... I have sooooo much work that has never been seen. Can't wait share it!!
Here's a sneak peek of Daniel and Rosy's Wedding!!
||| HIT that LIKE and SHARE button if you enjoyed these! 😌 |||
THE MOST heartwreching groom reaction I've ever experienced.
His mom was denied permission to enter the United States and his dad had passed away. His bride wanted to make sure he didn't walk down the isle without them... and surprised him with a small gift.
As you can hear in the video, I took 2 or 3 shots and then .... out of pure respect, backed away.
"RICK, we weren't going to do a Quinceañera!!" mom told me when I asked her why she was so emotional all day. [extra long pause]
"The ONLY reason we planned her Quince años is because of my dad......[Clarisa's grandfather]."
"I'M NOT GOING TO DIE AND NOT SEE MY BABY [his only granddaughter] IN HER DRESS!!" - Grandpa
Grandpa didn't make it to the Quince... y se quedo con sus ganas de bailar with "My baby".
MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT !!!
Five years of hard work & late nights... Five years of crying "quitting/not quitting" because the road got tough....
Five years later and not only am I STILL using the HoldFast Gear brand, but I'm HONORED now to have been named as their brand ambassador!!
The industy leaders, the originators, the ones that set off a camera leather strap revolution... THE BADDEST IN THE WORLD... I'm part of that team now!! #blessed

Me: "When did you get engaged?"
Them: "See what had happen was.... [lol] We're still not officially engaged!"
Me: "Dafuq??" HAHAHA
Truth is, Jessica knows how fast I get booked and wasn't going to wait on homeboy to propose!! SMDH!!! HAHAHA
All kidding aside, that right there got to me! The fact that someone wants me to document their big day and is not even engaged yet!!! I'M HUMBLED!!!!!!!
Rafa called me and asked me how much I would charge him to capture the engagement... I told him...
"NADA guey! Es mi regalo para ustedes. You vibe with me, Ima vibe with you! I gotcha!"
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! #blessed #ThankYou #Humbled #RealMomentsforLife

I put one of my extra cameras on a tripod and hit record just "to see", aver que!
This is my PERSONAL RANT VIDEO! THIS is what blew me away!
/// SHARE this vid. Maybe it can help someone.
THANK YOU all for this journey!! [de todo corazon]
In 2014, I left a 12 year Human Resources career to pursue a curiosity. I left behind my "safety blanket" of a steady paycheck after figuring out two major weaknesses in the game.
Those "hotshot" photographers at the time had NO IDEA what was about to hit them. They had NO IDEA how the local photography game was about to change forever!
GONE were the days of just sharing "PRETTY PICTURES"!!!
GONE were the days of NOT HELPING OTHERS!!!
//// SHARE this video. Help me inspire some to follow their passion. Help me inspire someone to be kind to others. De todo corazon... GRACIAS!
///// Special thanks to Jaime Maldonado Films. [continued in comments]

I went to New York y'all! We shot all day at Central Park. After the shoot, I asked for a HUGE favor!
"Can we please go to Times Square for just 1 shot?"
These last couple of years my life has been going 100 mph. My own ambition and drive has been my curse. I've made it a point to really slow down and enjoy life. Enjoy my girls.... enjoy my BEAUTIFUL CHOAS!
THIS was the only photo we took. My own life was the inspiration for this photo.
M Y L I F E C H A N G E D forever that one day the doc told my wife and I that we were having a girl!!
I froze!! I had a blank stare as my wife is laughing and telling me... "What's wrong!?!?! [lol]. Why are you scared!?!" [LMAO!!!!]
It's funny now, but at the time... I was SCARED AF!!!
GOD'S GREATEST GIFT TO ANY MAN.... A baby GIRL!!!
|||Thanks for always showing love! Keep SHARING!! ||
O R G U L L O M E X I C A N O !! [[ Personal Rant ]]
In the middle of the shoot, he looks around and pauses for a little bit! Then he looks right at me and tells me...
"Se parece al desierto que cruse. Dos días en el desierto! [long pause] Yo nomas quería venir a trabajar y acer una vida mejor!"
This isn't a political rant y'all! I don't think you're an idiot if you don't agree with my views. All I know is that there are some real humble people in this world who just need a chance!!
GIVE ME A HARD WORKING, HUMBLE DUDE WITH DRIVE AND AMBITION! [sin papeles] OVER A LAZY ENTITLED MF'r [con papeles] ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!!!
