Happy New Year everybody!

I am so sorry, but we have been so busy. It's not easy juggling a full time job, and trying to run and manage Weddings 9-1-1 AND The YStudio Photography business, but boy are we blessed and grateful! We just finished the last wedding of 2009 this past week, and now we can take a deep breath!!!

We would like to thank all of the happy beautiful couples that made this year a success for us, we look forward to keeping in touch with them all and we look forward to news of new babies arriving...wink wink....

Christopher & Jacqueline Bucini, Duke & Michelle Pahulu, Kenneth & Natalie Jamaca, Alfredo & Jacqueline Chavez, Robert & Raquel Rothenbeuscher, Jose & Lucia Vega, Michael & Theresa Burk, Nick & Elisha Cortez, Chris & Amanda Dunne, and John & Amber Schultz! You were ALL a blast to work with!
