{Krista+Ricky} Engaged

We had such a fun time with Krista and Ricky. Ricky is in the military, based in Arizona, so his trips here to California are few. Luckily the timing of our schedules allowed us to spend the day capturing the engagement time of their relationship. We look forward to shooting their wedding in August. Enjoy the photos and have a blessed weekend.

My Father's Day Gift

We'll I'm blogging this a day later than I planned, but that's the way it goes sometimes. I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves, but I'll give this intro: This is the Father's Day gift my beautiful wife Jessica gave to me.

This is just one of several pages with photos of Me, Jessica, and Micaiah.

I didn't know what to expect.

This is where the shock, disbelief, and utter JOY came in!

Needless to say this made my first Father's Day one I will never forget.

Sneak Peek...

Yesterday we went to beautiful Crystal Cove to take some engagement photos of Krista and Ricky. They picked the location and we couldn't be happier. As you can see from the photo the sunset was AMAZING, as was the photogenic couple. This is just one of many keepers we will post soon. Enjoy and happy Father's Day to all you dads.

P.S. Tomorrow I will post the AMAZING gift Jessica gave me today for Father's Day so be sure to check back in TOMORROW!

Elijah Rees

Last week Jessica took some photos of little Elijah Rees. He's 3 weeks old and I'm sure he'll follow in his dad's footsteps by playing guitar and fighting fires. Hope you enjoy them.

"Neither rain, nor sleet..."

For weeks we had an extended family shoot planned. The day came last week and wouldn't you know, in the month of JUNE, down came the rain and HAIL! Needless to say we had to make some changes in our plans for the location of the shoot. Luckily we were able to shoot at the wonderful home of the Siegerts, the grandparents of the clan. By the time we got there the rain had subsided and left an overcast yet serene atmosphere. We had a great time with all 13 of this fun family. Hope you all enjoy the photos.

The grandkids.

Family Shoot by Morgan

A little while back Jessica and I were blessed with a family photo shoot by Morgan Taylor, a good friend and fellow photographer. He just recently posted the results of the shoot and we couldn't be happier. Thanks so much Morgan.

Be sure to check out his blog.

Massey Insurance Services

As some of you know, I have my B.A. in Graphic Design. It has been a passion of mine for quite sometime and I enjoy the freelance work I get throughout the year.

A month back or so I started working on some design work for Massey Insurance Services. The company has been around for almost 30 years and has had the same corporate logo and identity for the same time period. The new owner wanted to take the look of the company into the 21st century. We had some good talks and after awhile I came up with look we are all proud of.

I know I haven't posted a lot of design work on here, but I figured I would show you all the other side of Jacob Mariano Photograph+DESIGN.
