Friar Tux Feature

Well this was way too cool not to share.

My pictures I took for my bros prom last year were featured on Friar Tux Shops blog today! Take a look!

Write up by Friar Tux Shop:

Location: Mission San Juan Capistrano
Photographer: Alaina Kraning of A Kreative Kraning
Friar Tux Shop Selection: Black Lorenzo Tuxedo

Mission San Juan Capistrano couldn’t be a more perfect place for a prom photo shoot! Kalen and Celest were lucky to be shot by Kalen’s sister, Alaina Kraning, who is a professional photographer. It’s not always easy to know how to pose for prom photos so these ideas are very helpful. Some of the poses they did are: a kiss, holding hands, dancing, laughing, dipping and sitting on a bench. Try various poses for your prom photos so that you’ll have lots of options to choose from when you see the final images.
The mission has a natural beauty with Spanish culture that goes perfect with the style choices for Kalen and Celeste of Yorba Linda High School. Kalen is wearing our slim fit Black Lorenzo Tuxedo with a black bow tie. His tuxedo has a shawl lapel, which has been a popular trend for celebrity red carpet events. Celeste is wearing a prom dress with a mermaid silhouette from the Los Angeles Fashion District. She accessorized with a rhinestone hair brooch to match her earrings for some sparkle. For couples that want a little bit of color, the roses on their corsage and boutonniere had just the right amount of red for a slight pop of color. Overall, it was a beautiful neutral palette for their prom style.

fall mini sessions are here

fall mini2-01

I’m SO excited to announce that I will be offering a limited number of mini portrait sessions this fall!

These are perfect for:

-Families {of all sizes!} looking for a few amazing photos for their holiday cards
-Moms-to-be who want maternity photos
-Engaged couples needing a few photos for their save-the-date cards
-Those who don’t want to spend an arm and a leg (these are 1/2 the price of my regular sessions!)

I know, I know. The Holiday’s already? Well as my sweet father reminded me… “only 98 days until Christmas, I have my list ready!”  It will be time to send out your Holiday cards before you know it and wouldn’t it be nice to have updated photos BEFORE the craziness smacks us in the face?

I am offering a limited number of sessions at these locations:

October 12th — Orange County — Yorba Linda, CA
October 19th — Riverside County — Corona, CA  (above pictured wooded area — yay for cooler weather!)

If you book by September 27th, you will get the session, an online gallery of 30-40 images, and a choice from my custom fine art holiday cards for $100 (regular price is $215)!

We have some super-cute card options. Just sayin’.

In addition to the basic package, extra add-ons are available and include:

-50-60 images
-Longer photo shoot time of 1 hour

Sessions are limited, and they will fill up fast! If you are interested in securing yours, contact me at
