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!

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!

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!

We photographed Lisa and Kimo’s Destination Wedding in Las Vegas this past fall.

The day started out as most weddings do, I noticed it was a bit cloudy for that day, but it was fine because I figured it was a good way to be spared from that Vegas heat we’re all so familiar with.

Everybody involved in the wedding was a bit more on the wild side- which I enjoyed. Lots of goofy moments, which to me, are the best in weddings. It’s nice to be able to slow down and enjoy those silent magical moments between a bride and groom but sometimes, it feels great to be able to laugh out loud- (not text message LOL where you just chuckle silently, but a hysterical cackle.)

Right before the first kiss, the clouds became dark and we heard thunder. And as soon as they shared their first kiss it began to pour.

The rain didn’t stop Lisa or Kimo. A little rain never hurt anyone so we all got a laugh out of it and proceeded with the rest of the wedding.

My favorite moment of this wedding was their wedding cake- or actually the lack of it. We were all crazy hungry and needed something to put in our stomachs. Now, because Lisa and Kimo’s reception was taking place at a later date, I wasn’t going to be able to cover their first cut of the wedding cake. What to do… what to do… I came up with the idea that instead of a cake, we’ll just do their first slice of pizza together! Lisa took a bite from Kimo’s slice and Kimo took a bite from Lisa’s. It was adorable. We’ve also seen the cake, cupcakes sometimes, but how many of us have seen pizza for this part of the wedding?

This wedding, like Las Vegas, was all about having fun and making memories. I’m just thankful I got to be part of it.

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged, so I thought I’d kick of the year by doing my first full Black and White post. *Their wedding was shot in color, I’ve just been wanting to do one of these for a while now…**

We photographed Julie and Carlos gorgeous wedding in Orange County this past year.

I met Carlos through my wife, who went to school with Julie. I got along with Carlos very well, we’re both into cars and his interest in the military kept our conversations long and pleasant.

The thing I remember most about Julie was that she’s into Video Games as much as I am into photography, her gaming system trumps my photo editing set up. She showed me her gaming room and my jaw dropped.

Their wedding day was filled with joy and laughter along with the occasional happy tears followed by a very emotional and eventful wedding ceremony.

When I dropped off their wedding album last month, I met their adorable firstborn, Elijah, who quickly took a liking to me.

I’m very happy to report that this couple was as happy as the day I shot these photos. They looked a bit sleep deprived but after meeting Elijah, I knew it was worth it.

Here’s to you and your beautiful family Carlos and Julie!
