Creative Vision Design & Photography:

Hi my name is Seanny and I'm the designer & photographer at Creative Vision, a design & photography boutique located in Orange County. Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to get to know me. I graduated from Woodbury University with a degree in Graphic Design and have worked in the Music/Entertainment Industry and Publishing world since 1999. But because I'm a true romantic, my passion was weddings, whether it was designing for them or photographing them.

Design can play an important role in a wedding. It sets the tone of the wedding beginning with the save the dates, to the to the invitations, all the way to the little personalized tag on the favors. Your wedding is all about you, the bride and the groom, and I can design everything to fit your personality and taste. I believe that every little detail is important, and it can make your guest feel how special your day is to you.

My love of photography began a few years ago when I fell in love with the photojournalism used to capture the event. Having been a bride myself, I know how important photography is to the bride and groom. My goal as a photographer is to capture all of the little moments, emotions and details, and to tell the story of the day through photography. I photograph a wedding, the way I would like my own wedding photographed.

    Sylvia & Michael’s Wedding at Summit House, Fullerton, CA

    Monday, October 17th, 2011

    Wedding I photographed with Youkeun Oh Photography .

     

    Meet the groom Michael. He’s a little camera shy, but eventually we got him to loosen up a little.

    Toasting with the groomsmen.

    Here comes the bride.

    One of the best parts of the Korean wedding is that the children give the parents flowers and gives respect to them during the ceremony, it’s always so emotional.

    The first dance….so sweet together :)

     

    During the slideshow we find out that Michael got the gold medal for one of the best proposals. Sylvia had always wanted a puppy, so Michael bought one and it came running into a party at Sylvia’s house, of course Sylvia had no idea (but everyone else knew what was going on), she picks up the dog and on the tag it read “Will you marry me” and Michel basically said, now that I’ve made your dreams come true, will you make mine come true and marry me……awwwwwww, I had tears in my eyes and all this was video taped and it was shown during the slideshow at the wedding. Good job Michael!!

    And here is the dog who quickly became one of the most loved family members…..he was the ring bearer :)

    Hilary and Joe’s Wedding at Brand Library & Ramsey’s at the Club, Toluca Lake

    Monday, July 25th, 2011

    Last month I got to second shoot again with Pye Jirsa of Lin and Jirsa Photography. The last time I got to work with him was last summer when I was still pregnant, so it’s been awhile. It was nice to work with Pye and shoot weddings together again.

    I met up with the groom first at the hotel where they were getting ready. It was fun hanging out with the guys, they are quite funny. One of the groomsman even wanted pictures in the shower….fully clothed though…don’t get any crazy ideas. Later on we all met up at Brand Park/Library. I use to go there when I went to college at Woodbury in Burbank, so I knew the park well. The ceremony took place at the Japanese gardens…I always thought it would be a nice place to have a wedding and now I got to take pictures there, how cool is that. After the Jewish wedding ceremony, everyone headed off to the Ramsey’s at the Club for the reception. This place was a very cool place for a wedding. It was a cozy, classy, elegant and an intimate setting, and because they had the whole club to themselves, everyone had room to spread out between the lobby, bar, patio and ballroom area.

    It was a gorgeous day for a wedding and Hilary and Joe looked amazing and together they made a beautiful couple. Congratulations!

     

     

    Red Bull seemed to be the drink of choice that day for the groomsmen while they got ready.

     

    Cutie patootie flower girls.

    Hot Bride!! That was my first thought when I saw her….so pretty.

    I love succulents in flowers…such a pretty bouquet!

    Love is just written all over their faces….this is why I love weddings so much :)

    Susan and Hyun’s Wedding at Sportsmen’s Lodge, Studio City

    Friday, June 17th, 2011

    Last Saturday I had the pleasure of second shooting with Youkeun of Youkeun Oh Photography. It was my first time shooting with him and I had a great time. I met Youkeun a couple of years ago at a B-School fieldtrip and I finally got the opportunity to work with him.

    The wedding was at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. It started out as a gloomy day, but then the skies cleared up for Susan and Hyun. It was my first time meeting the couple, but you could tell how much they cared and loved each other. It was emotional for the both of them when they saw each other for the first time and during the ceremony. The bridal party also was a fun bunch, always laughing and joking around with one another.

    Congratulations Susan and Hyun!!

    The first look.

    Alyssa & Wesley Are Married! {Downtown Disney, Anaheim Wedding}

    Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

    A few months ago I met Alyssa, and we pretty much hit it off instantly. Maybe it’s because we both have an art background and love design, but I think also because we both love to chit chat about everything and we just click so well. She told me about the man of her dreams, Wesley, and how he was serving in Afghanistan right now. I could tell how much she loved him and missed him. Then she told me about how she was planning her dream wedding at Disneyland and her love for Disney. Originally she booked me for their wedding for this September, but then I received an email about Wesley not being able to come back in time for the September wedding, so it was moved to next year. Then they decided that when he did come back this year for R&R they would get married first and renew their vows again next year. But with the uncertainty of the military, the dates kept changing. But finally we got one date sort of set in stone, May 28, 2011, which also happened to be the day that Alyssa would also graduate from Biola University. What a day for them and the whole family! First a graduation ceremony in the morning, then a wedding ceremony.

    I met up with the couple in the evening at Downtown Disney, Anaheim, to first do an engagement session with them. This cute couple surely did make my job easy. The key, I think, to great pictures, is to have the couple not see each other for months, then every shot you get turns out to be the most romantic picture….haha! Alyssa was a little shy at first, but then with Wesley there she forgot about my camera for a sec :) Afterwards we met up with her family and we did a quick, under the radar, ceremony under the Fantasia Hat. They said their own vows, exchanged rings, and now their dreams had come true, they were finally together forever! Thank you Alyssa and Wesley for inviting me to share your special day!

    “Once in awhile in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.”

    This past year, I had the pleasure of second shooting with Lin and Jirsa Photography. I’m a little behind on these blog posts, but I just wanted to share some of the weddings I’ve been to. One of the best things this year was that I was able to go to all sorts of different cultural weddings. I started the year off with a Persian wedding, a Chinese wedding, an Indian wedding then a good ole American wedding (pics to come in the next blog post). First off is Sapna and Sudesh’s Hindu wedding. It was absolutely amazing! The details were gorgeous!! I’ve never been to an Indian wedding before and I have to say it was such a beautiful ceremony filled with symbolic rituals.  Check out the pictures from the day.

    Lisa and Nick – Trash the Dress Session

    Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

    A few weeks ago I met up with Lisa and Nick again, for their trash the dress session. It was so much fun!! I’ve never done a trash the dress session before, and I was super excited for my first one. Most brides don’t want to ruin their dress, but Lisa was not messing around when she said she wanted to trash the dress. We started off at the fire station where Nick works, and we got to use the fire truck as our prop…..funness! Then at the park, Lisa decides she wants to climb a tree. So in her skin tight dress and heels, she shimmied up the tree…..quick too…..that was super impressive. Finally we ended our shoot at Newport Beach, where Lisa practically swam in the ocean….I was loving it! All I can say is thank goodness for my 70-200 mm lens, cuz I wasn’t gonna go in that water :) I think the pictures turned out great, and if I was able to fit into my wedding dress again, I would totally do a trash the dress session too.

    Lanchi & DeGuan’s Wedding – Huntington Beach Hilton Waterfront Hotel

    Friday, June 11th, 2010

    On May 29th, I had the pleasure again of second shooting with Pye from Lin and Jirsa Photography. We first started the day at the bride’s house where they did the traditional morning ceremony. In the Chinese and Vietnamese culture the wedding ceremony actually takes place in the morning. The Groom arrives at the bride’s home and there are gifts given to the bride’s family as a symbolic gesture. There is also praying to bless the marriage and honor those who are not with us. Both sides of the family also have representatives to speak for each sides families and the union is formed. However nowadays couples will not only honor the Asian traditions but they also have an American ceremony and that took place at the beautiful Hilton Waterfront Hotel in Huntington Beach. It was my first time meeting Lanchi and De, and they are the sweetest couple. They met in Boston while Lanchi was there getting her college degree. Then unfortunately she had to move all the way back to California. But with commitment and hard work they made the long distance relationship work and now they get too live happily ever after. They are quiet and reserved, but yet fun and silly at the same time. It was a very emotional ceremony and there were some great speeches that night and you could just feel the love that surrounded the couple and how happy everyone was for them. Congratulations Lanchi and De!!

    A little liquid courage before the ceremony, with the guys.

    Cutest little flower girl….she kept saying sewww (in chinese, which means smile) when she saw a camera.
    I just love Harpists at weddings. So romantic :)

    Beautiful cake with such a pretty backdrop.
    I love how the groom had his speech on his iphone….and I love, love how the bride looks at her husband :)
    Oh and check out the wedding teaser video from Film Foto Fusion.

    Lisa and Nick are Married!!

    Monday, May 31st, 2010

    Last weekend May 22, Lisa and Nick were finally married!! Yay! And now they are one big happy family. I met Lisa last year. It was the funniest thing, we met, because she interviewed me for a graphic design job thru Apple One which is where she worked at the time. Well, I didn’t get the job, but Lisa remembered my portfolio with my invitations in it and gave me a call when she got engaged. In the last several months I’ve worked with Lisa on all of her wedding designs, from save the dates, to the favors all the way to the logos on her candles and napkins etc. Then Lisa decided to hire me to be her wedding photographer as well, and I had the honor of not only designing for her, but photographing all her memories from her special day. It’s been such an amazing time getting to know Lisa and her new family. Lisa is one of those people who you instantly become friends with the first time you meet her. She has a wonderful personality and a such and kind heart and I’m so glad that we became friends. I first met Nick and his daughter Addison when we first did the engagement/family session last winter. Addison is the cutest little girl who is full of energy and Nick is a very manly sort of guy….well he is a firefighter after all, but he is also has such a soft side to him, which you can totally see when he looks at Lisa and his daughter. They make the most beautiful family, and last weeks wedding was not only a uniting of 2 people, but it was the uniting of a complete family. Thank you Lisa and Nick for the opportunity to share in your lives. Congratulations!!!

    We did the photo session before the ceremony at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, what a beautiful place!

    Check out some of the pics from the day!! There’s so many details and photos from this wedding, that you might hear about this wedding in the next several postings, so stay tune!!

    Lisa and Nick chose to do a First Look before the ceremony…..and I’m so glad they did, isn’t this series of pics adorable!

    Another view from the perspective of my second shooter and best friend, Kimmy.

    Nick and his daughter Addison.

    Aww, it’s the picture perfect family!

    This is Lisa, always smiling and laughing.

    I like how Addison’s face always lights up when she sees Nick and Lisa.
