Marissa and Randall’s wedding was a day to remember. There is nothing we love more than a wedding that is heart felt and filled with so much emotion. Streams of tears, smiles so wide, and endless laughter filled this day beautifully.

We shot Paul and Maggie’s Engagement Session a while back, check it out if you haven’t seen it :)

We photographed their wedding at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach, California.

Many wedding days go without a hiccup, many go slowly, many go quickly, but no two are ever alike.

Paul and Maggie’s wedding is one I won’t soon forget.

Their ceremony was small, quiet, and sincere. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

While walking around their ceremony, I ran into an old friend. I stumbled upon my childhood neighbor, Timmy- who played beautiful music during the ceremony.

For their romantic session, we walked around and shot around Main Street.

Just like before, Paul was extremely goofy- which came very appreciated as I sometimes get too caught up with taking photos and can get too serious.

Their reception at the Grand in Long Beach, was just as special.

Surrounded by their friends and loved ones, the night went on filled with captivating music, laughs and good times.

This past winter Paul and Maggie had their daughter and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Congrats Paul and Maggie!

Randall and Marissa had their engagement session in the Art District in Downtown Los Angeles.

We started about midnoon and enjoyed the colors other artists had painted on the walls.

Engagement sessions are a great time for us to get to know our clients better.

We spoke about what they looked forward to most about their wedding, what was left to be planned, and what excites them most about married life.

We learned that Marissa is absolutely in love with Randall and love his jokes. It was hard not to photograph her laughing.

I learned that me and Randall are both Louis CK fans.

Stay tuned for their Orange County Wedding!

I completely forgot to blog Dave and Louise’s engagement sesssion! We took this during the summer a while ago. We started the day off with a short hike in the Los Angeles Forest, went for a bike ride, and the hit the beach. Dave and Lo couldn’t get enough of each other.

We enjoyed the fact that they were more adventurous than some couples out there and that they wanted to show everyone what they do on their dates.

It was a particularly hot day that day and the stream at the trail we hiked provided some refreshment. After hitting the trails, we went down for a bike ride around Lo’s house, they zig zagged all over the street and made faces at each other the whole time, I’m not gonna lie- it was pretty cute to watch. We finished the day off with a trip to the beach where we eventually watched the sun go down.

Enjoy Dave and Lo’s adventurous engagement session!

 We photographed Kris and Jordan’s Engagement Session, last time in Los Angeles. Today we join them for their wedding.

We started the day at the Sheraton in Cerritos, where both Kris and Jordan got ready.

We then moved to their wedding venue at the Rolling Hills Church.

Their reception was held at the Grand in Long Beach.

We had a lot of fun during this one. Every venue we were in that day looked stunning and the bridal party was always full of energy.

Their wedding took place on a Sunday this past spring. On the many weddings I’ve covered, it sometimes is hard for get people on the dance floor.

Even with a workday looming nearby, there was no shortage of people dancing that night, making this one of the rarer occasions.

The crowd loved them, during the speeches, tears flowed, laughter filled the hall and made the night perfect.

Congrats Kris and Jordan!

Laura and Austin at the Balboa Inn

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re there to provide just the right amount of moral support.

On my weekends free, I’m usually more than happy to help other photographer friends shoot weddings. These weddings give me a chance to sharpen my skills, try new angles, and meet some awesome people.

I photographed this wedding alongside my friend, Craig from Craig Norris Photo, sometime last year.

I’m grateful for every wedding I photograph and the awesome people I meet in them.

During this wedding I met a hilarious cast of characters from the bridal party. The almost serious, but not quite so, groom, Austin and his amazingly wild bride, Laura.

I loved their attitude about everything, super laid back and so easygoing that it wouldn’t have been hard to forget I wasn’t a guest at their wedding.

Special Thanks to Craig for allowing me the chance to second shoot this :)

 Me and Joanna go way back we first met literally over 14 years ago. I believe we had history class together in 7th Grade.

When I heard that she was getting married, I was very glad that she contacted me for her San Diego Wedding this coming summer.

This engagement session was the first time I had met David, I try not to judge a book by its cover, but David looked like a pretty tough guy.

So I tried using tough guy (he works with chemicals so automatically thought Breaking Bad) things to connect with him, come to find out that he’s actually super down to earth and crazy easy to work with.

Either of the two barely had to be posed. As we walked through each location we photographed that day I would tell them to stop when I saw an area photogenic enough.

Their candid moments seemed like they were practiced and it all worked together to the benefit of my camera.

The Chemistry between these two was very obvious and it made my job super easy that day.

Enjoy the images!
