Love. The Universal Language : Kim and Manny



Te Amo.  Je t'aime. Ti Amo.  Te quiero.  Taim i' ngra leat. Ich liebe dich.   No matter the language,  It all comes back to that one thing....   Love.   It is the universal language.   One person can fall in love with one person from the other side of the world.  Different languages, different cultures, different traditions,    the chemistry and connection take over the power of words, logic or anything else they knew before.  No words need to be spoken, because real love, real chemistry is felt.  Everything else falls into place where it should.

Meet Kim and Manny.  We decided to incorporate the culture of both of the backgrounds into their engagement session. We started out on Cherokee Street to showcase Manny's Mexican heritage.  Bright colors, the best taco stands in town, margaritas and fun make you want to dance music.   Then we made our way to The Hill.  It is the Italian district in town.  The Hill may only encompass a one square mile area, but when you are there, you know you are there.   The aroma of authentic Italian cuisine immediately stirs up the growling in your tummy.  The two cultures definitely have their little things that make them what they are, but through the differences, one things was clear.   They share a passion for their family, love and life.  Kim and Manny your cultural upbringings have lead you to the love I was able to capture and am so looking forward to capturing at your wedding this weekend.  :)




And that Behind the Lens LeLe fun.......

Simple quality testing for our clients......
 I am hands on, in your face, showing by doing kind of photographer.  I touch.  I demonstrate.  I am such a visual person that for me, this is the only way I can truly depict what I am trying to capture between the two of them.
Senorita!!!!!
