Hi there!

To all who have supported me over the years, I send you a very special virtual hug! I'm still photographing (mostly film now) and you can view all recent work on my new site www.AraliWest.com. Lots of change in the works, including a jewelry website my husband and I created called West Clove, you can find us on instagram - @westclove

Again, thank you for the continual support!

Upland, California Wedding: Evelyn + Sal

A good friend of mine named Gladys who is also a wedding photographer gave me the pleasure to help photograph her sisters wedding on Saturday, April 26, 2014 in Upland, California. Unfortunately, we can't be at all places at once, especially whe in the ceremony :) Evelyn and Sal were so cute together and the weather made for great photos. Congrats to the two of them! Here are a few of my favorites...

Callaway Winery Wedding - Temecula, CA

I had the pleasure of photographing Diana and Matthew's Temecula wedding at Callaway Winery. It was so beautiful that it reminded me how much I enjoy outdoor weddings. We were surrounded by nature and a beautiful sunset. What more can you ask for?

Tim, Jamie & Carter Await a New Addition to the Family

It really is fascinating to see where life takes you and the experience you share with someone else, like building a family and home together. I've known Tim and Jamie since before they were married and it has been such a joy to see them grow individually and as a family. I photographed the two of them when Carter was still a baby and now they have a second one of the way! Looking forward to continually see their amazing little family grow.

Belmont Shore + Michael's Pizzeria

Saturday I scheduled a shoot later in the day before sunset; I've been so busy I haven't been able to "stop and smell the roses," so Jonathan and I decided to catch some sun before it went to into hiding for the Winter. We walked a couple blocks through Belmont Shore, spotted some great fashion folks and some pretty awesome rides. We also made our way to Michael's Pizzeria in Long Beach which was named the best pizzeria in the U.S. and Los Angeles. Being a foodie, I had to see what the fuss was all about. It was a great experience overall and reigns as top tier pizza choices...
