Let's get Trashy!

We've recently introduced a new segment to Nick Corona Photography called "Trash the Dress" Sessions! Don't worry, it sounds more intimidating than it really is! We've had the pleasure to work again with one of our most favorite brides, Amanda! She was outstanding and so natural! Here are a few of my favorite glam shots of her!

P90x - The Proof

The new fitness craze.... P90X. I recently introduced my old EMT partner, Zach, to the program..... Sure it's not wedding or engagement pictures but the results are definitely picture worthy! Here are a few snapshots I took!

This is a fitness program that guarantees results within 90 days.... hence the name P90X. The routine consists an hour to an hour and a half work out 6 days a week with rest or stretching on the 7th day. You alternate your strength training and cardio days, so 3 per week each. You repeat your workouts for 4 weeks - then the muscle confusion hits!! Your strength training days become new workout for the next 4 weeks... then again the strength training workouts change. So each month you are doing cardio and 3 new strength training workouts. All this combined with a wonderful nutrition plan and the weight will fall off. Just check out the results!

.... and here's what P90x did for me!!

Julie & Brandon - Love Story

Brandon proposed to Julie by serenading her to Taylor Swifts top hit "Love Song". Of course, she said "Yes!", which is where we come in. In the shakespeare like setting of the historic Mission Inn in Downtown Riverside, CA, we spent some time with this devoted duo and took some fantastic pictures!

Sarah & JP - Lookout Point

Sarah & JP have a magnetism about them that draws you in and when you are around them you cannot help but enjoy their company! Down at the Lookout Point in Corona Del Mar we trashed around the beach, climbed on some rocks and snapped some amazing pictures of these two love-birds. Besides being JP's favorite beach, this is where he got down on one knee and popped the question! We had such an awesome time, we did not even know we were working!

Grace & Ryan

What a way to kick off the New Year! Grace and Ryan got married January 3rd at The Grand in Long Beach. The excitement shared between the two was contagious! With such an amazing couple, and beautiful scenery, its no wonder their pictures are breath-taking.

Bridal Parties

Bridal Parties are usually the bride and grooms closest friends and family. Because of the lifelong relationships that exist between party members, stories from childhood, troubled times, and embarrassing moments make up most of the conversations. These relationships also provide substance for amazing pictures. The openness and friendship releases walls of discomfort that are typically constructed during pictures. As a photographer, if you just hang in the background of the bridal party getting ready, you will get some intimate shots of the bride and groom just being themselves with friends and family. Posing them up is a cinch as well; they are willing to go the extra mile to make the bride and grooms pictures "picture perfect"!
