Sumerle and Tom

Sumerle and Thomas Dyer
Wedding Date: April 17th 2010

Sumerle and I go back to Freshman year in high school. It really takes a special friendship to keep in touch with somone years after you graduate. I won't tell you how many years, I don't want to age myself but lets just say it has been more that 2 years.
This year I had the honor to do Sumerle's hair and makeup for her wedding! I was so excited to help! She didn't need much help, she is already such a beautiful person not just on the outside but also within. She chose to go for more of a classic look and I feel that we acheived it 100%. She looked so glamorous and regal.

The photographer did an absolute wonderful job it was so hard choosing the images I wanted for my blog. You can view more of thier work at The pre-wedding photos were taken at the beautiful Mission Inn of Riverside California.

The ceramony took place at the Historical Citrus Park. Followed by coctail reception at the lovely Ciao Bella Restaurant.

Best Wishes to Sumerle and Tom. May your journey together be filled with love and laughter!

Commercial Shoot for John Elway's Crown Toyota

Photography by: Dean Wilder Photography

Toyota Auto Center in Ontario Photo shoot

Working with the staff of Toyota Auto Center in Ontario as well as Mr. and Mrs. Elway was definitely a pleasure! This photo shoot was put together for commercial purposes, you may have already seen one of the billboards off the 60 freeway in Riverside. Handcrafted Media and Dean Wilder Photography are a group of talented, laid back yet so professional group of people they make work feel like play time. The photo shoot consisted of 6 models and over 15 staff needing hair and makeup, so as you can imagine it was a pretty busy day for the makeup and hair department which consisted of myself and Adela Benavidas. So many thanks to Adela!
