Mika and Tom

Amanda Thomas, the Catering Sales Manager at the incredible Renaissance ClubSport Hotel in Aliso Viejo (yes, we have a hotel in my city), recommended Mika and Tom to us. Tom met Mika in Japan and fell in love. While waiting for a visa for Mika, they started planning their wedding. This would be our first wedding at the Renaissance, and we were very excited. As soon as Mika arrived here, we immediately did their engagement shoot. We really like doing the engagement shoots since it helps us to get better acquainted with the couple prior to the wedding. Mika is not only beautiful but very animated. Tom’s face beams every time he looks @ his beloved which makes for great photographs and a fun shoot. The Renaissance as you can see has many fabulous backdrops…we love the wall of water, the lobby @ the Renaissance, the outdoor patio with fabulous lanterns, it is a good fit for a modern wedding.

Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo

A lot of great things have been happening at my end. I am most excited about my wedding photography business, Studio 656 Photography, which I started with my business partner, Ben Craig. We are lucky enough to be one of the preferred vendors for the fabulous new Renaissance ClubSport, a 174-room boutique hotel, sports club, and day spa that opened up in Aliso Viejo this past weekend.

Ben and I have been taking before and after photographs of the Renaissance for months. Here are three images of the Lobby in different stages.

I live in Aliso Viejo and this is a wonderful addition to our city. For more information go to or better yet go see it in person. They’re located at 50 Enterprise in Aliso Viejo.
