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.

    Meet Holden Hess {Newborn Photoshoot}

    Friday, February 10th, 2012

    Meet Holden Hess, he was born on October 5, 2011. His mama, Doris,  is a good friend of mine. I even took her engagement pictures, click here.

    Holden is now about 4 months old now, but I took these pictures when he was about 1 month old when I got to meet the little guy in person. I know, it took me long enough to post these. But he is such a cutie pie, I just had to share!

    He’s probably thinking…”mama, what am I doing in this box?”

    I just love cute little baby feet!

    Abbe + Bryan are Married! {Newport Beach, CA}

    Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

    It was a beautiful and sunny California day on Saturday, January 7th, the perfect wedding day for Abbe and Bryan. They make the cutest and sweetest couple and I enjoyed capturing their day as it unfolded. They made photographing them so easy, because you can truly see how much they love each other in every picture, so not much effort is needed on our part. Check out the pictures from the day and remember to view the slideshow here!

    The wedding was at the Bayview Marriott in Newport Beach.Add an Image

    Choi Family Photoshoot {Tustin, California}

    Thursday, December 15th, 2011

    I got to hang out with this cute little family last Saturday, meet the Choi family….

    To see more pictures check out the slideshow, click here.

    They had just moved into their beautiful home, and were still unpacking. I’m glad that they unpacked the Christmas tree first, it made for a very cute first Christmas picture in their new home :)

     

    Adri (the mom) wanted to have pictures taken  of the girls in their traditional Hanboks (Korean Dresses), before they outgrew them.  They look so cute!

    The girls loved their lollipops….Rylen wouldn’t let it go!

     

    After lollipops, we had to let the kids work off the sugar :)

    Blowing Kisses.

     

    Wild Family Photoshoot {Oceanside, California}

    Last Sunday I got to hang out with the Wild Family, check out the fun pictures.

    To see more pictures, click here for the slideshow.

    Meet Hailey, the older sister.

    It was funny when Katrina decided to feed Hailey the dirt :)

    Wheee!

    If Katrina looks familiar to you, it’s because she was Aidan’s first playdate…look how big and mobile she is now.

    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 :)

    Aidan’s Circus Train Party – 1st Birthday!

    Saturday, October 8th, 2011

    I still can’t believe a year has past, and my little boy, Aidan, is now 1 years old. It seemed like just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital and our whole world had changed.

    We decided to celebrate big and throw him a circus party, since I’ve always wanted a circus party, but then I found a train you could rent at trainpartyexpress.com, and it evolved into a Circus Train Party extravaganza!

    Of couse as you already know, it all begins with the invitations. It was printed on both sides and even included a train ticket you could tear off. Artwork was from Nitwit Collections (license #33615)

    If you are interested in ordering this invitation, contact us at info@invitationparlour.com for more information.

    My friend had made me onesies for each month, which was great because then we would remember to take pictures every month for a year. I used the pictures for the invitations and had them at the party as well.

    Custom address labels are a must with my invitations & cards….presentation starts with the envelope. As I always say, it’s not necessary…but it surely does look cute!

    And here is the centerpiece of the party…the circus treats table, it was loaded with different candies, candy apples, cotton candy and animal cookies. There was also mini cupcakes & a yummy chocolate cake from A Piece of Cake.

    Here’s all the details from the treats table. I decided to decorate the cake myself so that the cake would match the party, there was mini bunting flags and a circus train on there, that I cut on my sillouette. The mini cupcakes were bought from Walmart (I was so lucky the colors matched) I bought cute little clear gable boxes and put animal cookies in there and they had labels saying, “Aidan’s Circus Animals” The polka dot background was wrapping paper I found at Paper Source and all the popcorn containers I found at the Dollar Tree store (that place is a like a treasure chest for finding random things you need for parties)

    This display was my prize counter for the carnival games we had in our backyard. We had a raffle for bigger prizes, but everyone is a winner at this party and all the kids got to choose from yo-yo’s, clown bouncy balls, train bubbles/whistle and circus ducks.

    I found the vintage circus train toy on ebay, and when it arrived, I was so happy to see how big it was, which gave me the idea to fill it with lollipops. We didn’t have a real clown, but the 3′ clown balloon was floating around greeting people. I think the signs were great addition, we had a train stop sign, signs for the games, even a sign for the “snack bar” where guests filled up on hot dogs, pizza and nachos.

    Here is the train that started all this party madness. Funny thing is that when I booked it I was afraid it would be like a boring tram ride, but when I saw it and rode on it the first time, I felt like a kid. There was music playing like the rides at Disneyland, and it actually went pretty fast (definitely put your seat belt on). The conductor was wonderful & everyone had an awesome time on it…even the adults :)

    I found the cute little clown costume on Zulily. I was so happy when it arrived the day before the party.

    See the rest of the pictures on the slideshow…click here.

    Camacho Family Photoshoot {Laguna Beach}

    Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

    A few weeks ago I met  up with the Camacho family in Laguna Beach for a family photo shoot. Check out the pictures from the day. And remember to check out the slideshow too! Click here for the slideshow.

    Look how cute these girls are….they made my job easy.

    Kaylie is older by a year and definitely takes on the older sister role.

    Sabrina is the goofy one.

    What a beautiful family :)

    What’s a photoshoot without lollipops? Candy is the best bribe in the world.

     

    Some mommy loving :)

     

    And some goofy faces with dad.

    Yellow tongues!

     

    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 :)

    Jackson’s Baptism

    Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

    On July 3rd, I got the chance to be a part of Jackson’s Baptism. I can’t believe that he’s gotten so big already. Remember the pictures from the newborn shoot? Click here to see that photoshoot. Now see how much bigger he’s gotten….

    Awww, a sweet little smile.

    Big sis Addy, playing with Jackson.
