This was our second time photographing Jaja and Jeremy, our first was their Engagement Session in San Diego.

We arrived at her hotel with a couple hours left before their big moment.

Jaja began to get ready. With the a grin on her face from the moment she saw us, we knew how excited she was!

Upon arriving at Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, I noticed this beautiful walkway. We proceeded to taking some portraits of Jaja and her girls while Jeremy signed his half of the wedding paperwork.

The timeline was lean, so we rushed to the main Chapel.

Built by Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy in the 1950’s, this tree chapel sits amidst redwoods and a spectacular view of the Pacific. Large clear windows with long awnings make this photographer’s dream enjoyable for anyone. If you get a chance to visit Wayfarer’s, do it. You won’t regret it.

Giggles and chuckles were exchanged at the altar during the ceremony. The sounds of happiness echoed off the bare glass surrounding the chapel.

After the ceremony, we brought the couple to a spot overlooking Catalina Island to take their first portraits as husband and wife. It’s a good thing we decided to slow down and take some portraits, slow points like these are fleeting and can sometimes be the only time couples can enjoy each other’s company during their wedding day.

The first things I noticed when we arrived at the wedding reception were the facecakes. Each table at their wedding reception had a different flavor cake with photo from Jaja and Jeremy’s travels throughout the years.

The room settled as it was that special time in the wedding reception for speeches. Jaja’s parents could not be there at the wedding, so when her sister read her father’s letter to her, all the eyes in the room watered. Even yours truly.But let’s not forget about the groom. I watched Jeremy dance with his mother during the reception. With every sway, every step, we all felt the emotion and love between mother and son.

As their families danced the reception away, I stole the bridal party away and went for a quick portrait session next to shore. The group was literally jumping for joy as their best friends shared a kiss together, I’d never seen a group so happy for the bride and groom.

Congratulations Jaja and Jeremy!

I had the pleasure of joining Jaja and Jeremy on their date to Julian, San Diego. With Blue skies overhead and the grass looking oh-so-green, it was a great day for photos.

Jaja and Jeremy met a few years back and quickly hit it off. Jeremy is the head contractor for a small Los Angeles based company and and Jaja is full-time Physical Therapist.

With every kiss shared these two sent giddy shivers down every romantic bone in my body, Cupid couldn’t have put a better couple together.

Their wedding will be taking place at the Wayfarer’s Church in Palos Verdes.

Probably one of the most gorgeous weddings I’ve ever photographed filled with Beautiful colors and a wonderful, loving family. Congratulations to Josh and Lisa.

We started the day out at the epic Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. Their hotel room had a bangin’ view of the coast. Lisa and her bridesmaids were getting ready for what was to be one of the most memorable days of her life.

When we arrived at  La Venta Inn My jaw dropped at the view and at how gorgeous the location was. The place was beautifully decorated with the roses.

The live band played into the reception. Setting a great mood and getting the guests going.
