This will always be one of my all time favorite weddings because it was Loren’s wedding. Loren is basically my sister. She’ been my sister’s BFF since high school when we lived a block a way from her. Funny thing, Loren and my my BFF, Michelle, grew up together since their dads are besties. So we are all basically sisters! When Loren got married she didn’t want me to stress all day taking photos but did ask if I could bring my camera to capture some classic candid photos that Josh and I are known for. Of course I had to! I also did a bunch of getting ready photos and just a few extras of the day for her.
I love all their gorgeous rustic fall pieces of decor! The handmade ring box is to die for. Congrats Loren and Grady! You guys are made for each other!
This amazing location hold weddings! The Point Vicente Interpretive Center near Rancho Palos Verde in California was the perfect place for an outdoor wedding with a nighttime party. This beach wedding was so gorgeous! We had perfect light all day and a perfect couple! We even captured the beautiful Point Vicente lighthouse in the background which was super meaningful to Maggie since it reminded her of her dad. I hope every wedding going forward is filled with as much love as this one!
This military country club wedding was nothing short of perfect. With massive views of the rolling hills and perfect glowing skies all day long, it was easy to capture the romance of the day.
Hereʼs a few highlights from Malissa and Buckyʼs wedding near Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
What did we do to celebrate our first anniversary? We went to a friendʼs wedding and watched them get hitched! The best part is that now we get to celebrate wedding anniversaries with them from here on out! It was such a fun day celebrating in Huntington Beach. And the best part is that we totally take credit for them getting engaged since Jonathon caught the garter at our wedding 🙂
Itʼs wedding day in Costa Mesa/Newport Beach Country Club! Like every wedding I started the day documenting the ladies getting ready. What I wasnʼt prepared for was seeing dad hanging out with amazing daughter and loving every minute of girl time.
Did you see that look her gave her as he walked her down then aisle? This dad and daughter have a fun connection that will never be lost!
Everyone seemed overjoyed to have Maggie and Steve finally join together as husband and wife. I loved seeing the smiles, laughter and pure joy spill out from everyone!
Maggie and Steve had way too much fun at their engagement session at the Montage in Laguna Beach. I couldnʼt get these two to stop laughing! If this session is what their wedding day will be like then I canʼt wait for wedding day!
There is something very romantic about a Catholic wedding, especially when red is the color of the day.
You canʼt beat Laguna Beach at sunset for an engagement session! Loving the rocks and this sweet couple!
Dulce is a photographer friend of mine who I absolutely adore. We met when she was dating Joshʼs old roommate. We were always hanging out together with our boys and we become great friends. Then she met Chris and fell in love! Knowing that she wanted a photographer she could trust for her wedding day, she asked me (and Josh) to be there to photograph every moment.
It was a simple backyard wedding full of joy! I can not get enough of the photos of Dulce and her grandparents crying after the ceremony. Sheʼs going to remember their joy forever!!
Cynthia and Thomas fell in love in Hawaii and wanted to capture some of that sweet Hawaiian beach love in their engagement photos. I took them down the tide
pools where we played in the water and they got romantic in the sand. They even sent me a sunset photo from their Hawaiian trip to photoshop into one of their engagement photos, since it was a bit overcast the night of their session. I think it looks great!
I just have to say that this was the most fun wedding Iʼve been to! I even was able to dance with my fun bride, Ashley, out on the dance floor as we captured fun candids of their crew having fun!
Ashely and Erin are so much fun! Tivoli Too was an amazing location since they could have all their guests at one place all night long, making it so easy for everyone to have fun. We met up with the couple for a few getting ready shots at the hotel up the street. Ashely loved the gazebo at the hotel and asked if we could do a first look and photos at the gazebo. Of course!! And they are beautiful! After words, we met up with the family and wedding party at Tivoli Too for group photos. What a fun group! The ladies even did jumping photos.
I have to say, outdoor nighttime ceremonies are the hardest to photograph. I never want to be a distraction to the guests with flashes going off all the time so we had to really choose the best time to take each photo. I think Josh and I did an amazing job capturing all the fun of a Catholic-Jewish wedding ceremony.
Even though their ceremony was a little tough, their reception was easy, beautiful and so much fun!! I love all the emotion-filled candids we were able to capture!
How gorgeous is their cake? The grand display stand that Tivoli Too provided totally complements their 3 tier wedding cake. And the flowers just pop!
