Noche de Altares


This was my fourth year attending Noche de Altares in Santa Ana, California. If it wasn't for my good friends, Jack and Jess, I don't think I would have ever known about this beautiful event. Each year Jack and Jess participate and I can't believe how much everything has changed since 2009. Their altar grows larger each year, as does the event itself and the crowd. Although it's more difficult to take photos these days, I still tried my best to snap a few yesterday. I thought I would take this opportunity to not only share yesterday's photos but to share a few of my favorites from past years...
