Michael and Pauline Same Day Edit June 2016 by Archi Prudencio

There’s nothing quite like getting the pre-wedding jitters. As a married couple ourselves, we’ve experienced this feeling firsthand. For several months you stress and plan for this special day and now it’s finally here! An overabundance of mixed emotions comes at you like a wave, but it’s exhilarating nonetheless. Ask any married couple—they’ll tell you it’s a rush you’ll never forget!

For Mark and Pauline, we really wanted to showcase the making of a happily ever after.We shot the beginning scenes at St. John Baptist De La Salle Church in Granada Hills. This location is very near and dear to the groom’s and Archi’s heart. This parish is actually where the two friends went to elementary school.

The remaining scenes were shot a few miles down at The Vineyards in Simi Valley. As you can see from the charming reception footage, smiles never left the faces of the newlyweds and guests.

To us, this wedding was like witnessing a fairy tale come to reality. 

Congratulations, Mark and Pauline!

Raskin Family Maternity Portraits by Archi Prudencio

Celebrating family has always been the essence of who we are. So it comes to no surprise how delighted we become when our good friends share news that they’re expecting.

David, Cherry, their beautiful daughter, Skyla, and baby number #2 posed perfectly during the golden hour at O’Melvyn Park in Granada Hills. Having grown up in this neighborhood and creating fond memories in this area as a child, Archi found this location fitting for the new family of 4.

For this shoot, we really wanted to capture the excitement and elation parenthood brings. Lucky for us, the Raskin’s were naturals at highlighting these feelings on camera. The positive energy coming from their intimacy and smiles were equally contagious and admirable.

From one happy parents to another, congratulations! We can’t wait to meet your new baby!
