Malia Bates Graduation Session https://www.michellesmithphotography.com/blog/2018/8/malia-bates-graduation-session       Have you ever seen true beauty captured in one photo? No? Take a look at Malia and her Graduation Session! This girl did it! Graduated from Redlands University and now right on her way to Michigan State! We had such an enjoyable time taking these pictures at her home campus, and I'm telling you we had a blast! With every flash or snap of a picture, a glorious smile was formed! From the historic structures of the school to the open greenery, we had captured every angle of true bliss of Malia! She may have completed this chapter in her story, but now she begins another and I wish her the best in making the greatest memories possible! 138_BatesMalia_032718138_BatesMalia_032718 025_BatesMalia_032718-Edit025_BatesMalia_032718-Edit 048_BatesMalia_032718048_BatesMalia_032718 175_BatesMalia_032718175_BatesMalia_032718

Kristin & Jose's Wedding https://www.michellesmithphotography.com/blog/2017/8/kristin-joses-wedding Kristin and Jose's wedding at the Mission Inn in Riverside, Ca was absolutely beautiful. Of course, you can't go wrong with stunning architecture like that of the Mission Inn. However, the real stars of the show were Kristin and Jose and their breathtaking love for one another. I had a great time photographing this wedding and am thrilled about how the photos turned out.

Cindy & Luis Prom Session https://www.michellesmithphotography.com/blog/2017/7/cindy-luis-prom-session Prom is always such an exciting time, and it's even more exciting when you have a special someone to spend it with.  We had the privilege of photographing Cindy and her boyfriend, Luis, in a prom-style photo shoot.  Luis was dressed in his formal attire, while Cindy stole the show in a stunning and elegant prom dress that passersby couldn't help but admire.  Their positive personalities along with their willingness to follow direction really contributed to the success of the shoot.  It was an absolute joy taking their photos, and I look forward to working with them again.

Murillo Family Session https://www.michellesmithphotography.com/blog/2017/1/murillo-family-session You never know what you're going to get when you plan for an extended family session outdoors.  We had planned to photograph the Murillo family at the Wildlands Conservancy in Oak Glen. It's a beautiful area that any family would love to enjoy the outdoors while doing their family session.  When we got there, there was so much fog that you could barely see 10 feet in front of you. So, what would we do? Cancel? No, we had planned this for quite some time. We drove down to the Ranger Station and found a perfect, private location.  It really pleasantly surprised all of us and we had a blast.

Mestes Wedding Video https://www.michellesmithphotography.com/blog/2016/12/mestes-wedding-video On November 20, 2015, I had the privilege of photographing the Mestes Wedding at the historic Mitten Building in Redlands.  I am so glad that I was able to be a part of their special day.  The love between Steve and Kathy is very real and there were so many beautiful and emotional moments that it was difficult deciding what should stay and what should go in this condensed version of a wedding video.  Despite the shorter length, though, their video still captures all of the love and emotions that were felt that day.  We hope you enjoy it! Mestes Wedding
