YOU GUYS JUMPED IN THE WATER! I still can't believe that it was Liz's idea. Caleb & Liz's Engagement Session at Emerson Point Preserve was so much fun and absolutely gorgeous. It was hot...it was very humid and bugs were attacking us. You'd never know it because when these two are together they are just perfect and in their own little world. Caleb absolutely adores Liz...you can see it with the way he holds her and the way he looks at her. Liz is so happy and comfortable around him. He puts her at ease.

I've been getting a lot of questions and compliments on how I use and maximize social media. I'm frequently told "I want to use it just like you do. Whats your secret or strategy?" Honestly? You just use it!! I've been blogging and tweeting since 2007. Somehow convinced my former Fortune 50 employer to let me start and lead them in social media just so I could use it at work....ha! Just use it...all the time! Well folks that's my social media workflow....not fancy by any means. Start somewhere and start tomorrow!!!! Good luck!! less https://instagram.com/p/1CYj0oRN_v/

Do you ever fall in love with people when you first meet? I do! And that's exactly what I felt when I first met Tricia and John! She booked me sight unseen. We had never even talked. I kept thinking... don't you at least want to hear my voice? A few short months later I finally got to meet the lovely Bride-to-be and her Fiance. John & Tricia's The Powel Crosley Estate Wedding was every bit of who they are. Very elegant and FUN! On the blog: http://www.naomichokr.com/blog/?p=7175

We have been planning their engagement session since late 2014. I was so excited to finally meet them. Then when we finally were scheduled to do the shoot....the very dry and drought-ridden city of Los Angeles was forecasted to get some rain. And by some rain... I meant a downpour. Something the city definitely needed but....we didn't need on the one and only day we could shoot. We had our afternoon downtown all planned and mapped out exactly the way we wanted...but we had to transition to plan B right away. Plan B didn't happen until 3 hours prior to the shoot. Sounds dreadful right? Not exactly! Read on....

Everything turned out better than expected!!! And I love that so much! We ended up meeting in Pasadena instead. Sam & Brenda's Pasadena City Hall Engagement Session was everything and more than we all hoped for. On the blog: http://www.naomichokr.com/blog/?p=7156

It's a boy! Renée & Bracy Maynard are having a baby boy!!!! Congratulations to the loving and amazing couple!

What a huge honor to be the one to make the formal announcement online!!!

I had the pleasure of documenting Renee & Bracy's Sarasota wedding reception at the Hyatt Regency. 100 of their closest family and friends were in attendance. During the reception the happy parent's-to-be made the announcement of the baby's gender using confetti pops. Everyone was cheering, jumping up and down and laughing in pure joy. Family members were hugging and in tears....it was beautiful. 

Their full wedding reception in Sarasota is now on the blog: Enjoy! http://www.naomichokr.com/blog/?p=6591

‪#‎FBF‬ Happy Flashback Friday! This image was shot back in Feb of 2012. It was the very first wedding I shot on my own within 2 months of starting my wedding photography business (I launched my business in January). This first dance image of Lauren & Michael Mincberg definitely still is one of my most favorite images that I've captured.

Lauen & Michael now have a sweet and lovely baby girl. So happy for them!

I was reminded by the bride herself that it was their Anniversary…shame on me! Last year I travelled back to my home state in CA to shoot one of my High School best friends wedding at Half Moon Bay near San Francisco. And now I'm choking and tearing up as I write this…. it was such a happy and special day. It was also the first time we reunited after more than 10 years or being apart and the first time I got to meet her husband. I was just so glad to be there to document it. To Chiko & Michael…. happy anniversary you two. Enjoy Martha's Vineyard (or Aling Maria as you call it…it's a Filipino thing folks)…. Love you both so much! Be sure to check out their wedding here: http://www.naomichokr.com/blog/?p=5634
