Bakersfield CA Newborn, Maternity & Wedding Photography | Jess Cadena » Wedding & Portrait Photography for Lovers, Expecting Moms, & Newborns.

Back in April of this year, two very special people I love very much were married at the Rio Bravo Country Club here in Bakersfield, CA. For a change, I wasn’t the one behind the camera ♥ I’ve been meaning to blog this one for a while now but it is way overdue that I share the awesomeness that is Rob & Jeni’s wedding!

Jeni has been a close friend since…. well since before either of us were baby-making ;) I feel very honored to have been able to stand by her side bawling my cry-baby eyes out while she & Rob exchanged their life long vows ♥

I have to take a moment to tell you about the amazing team of people who worked this wedding because they’re all so incredibly talented and worked so amazingly in this wedding! I mentioned that I wasn’t behind the camera for this wedding because I wasn’t… instead my favorite business and everything partner, David, teamed up with our friend Ro as photographers. Our incredibly talented friends Patrick & Tim worked behind the cameras as videographers. If you haven’t already, you NEED to jump over to Patrick’s site to see Rob & Jeni’s wedding video! Our favorite lady Amanda gave us all beautiful hair for the day & our sweet friend Ande Castaneda was our steady handed makeup artist!

What a great busy newborn season I’ve had! I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with this beautiful new mom & dad, their precious new baby girl & their visiting families through this session. I’ve never been so welcomed by so many heartwarming sweet people! She’s a lucky girl to have so many loving family members come to celebrate welcoming her to the world!

Mom & Dad, I know I’ve said it too many times now, but I cannot get over you two and the love you have for your sweet girl!

Mom had several items available for me to use, like this gorgeous heirloom, her own quilt from her childhood ♥

Boy has it been awhile since I’ve posted some personal stuff! Sometimes it’s important for me as a photographer to step back and remember exactly why I’m here and it’s always my children. I’m not afraid of my mommy goggles and I’m bearing them proud while I post this that’s for sure! I’m so in love with these two people. The love they have for each other and the pure joy they have in the simplest of things. They are so beautiful ♥
