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!

I had the pleasure of being the wedding photographer for one of my oldest friends.

Their wedding took place at the David L Baker Golf Course in Fountain Valley.

Stay tuned for the more gorgeous images from these two!

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!

Elizabeth and Jon both share a hobby with me and my wife. They love hiking, here’s a quick peak (see what I did there? ;)) at our latest engagement session/hike with this awesome couple. These two have so much love for each other, it made my camera melt. All joking aside, I have to applaud these two. An 8-mile hike in dress shoes/heels isn’t anything to laugh at, but these two, astonishingly excited throughout the whole session, were great.

This won’t be the last you’ll see of Elizabeth and Jon. Stay tuned!

While Carmageddon was wreaking havoc in Los Angeles, we were in the Inland Empire photographing Brigitte and Elliot’s intimate wedding.

If you recall, Brigitte and Elliot joined us last time in Fullerton for the engagement session.

Brigitte got ready at her sister-in-law’s house, where her daughters did her make up. There was a stillness in the air that I can’t describe. Brigitte was extremely excited, yet calm.

Our favorite part of the wedding while Brigitte was getting ready. These two cute little girls were having what seemed like the time of their lives dancing around the house, and when Brigitte got her dress on, it stopped them in their tracks. One the girls began to cry.

The little moments are what makes a wedding special. Most weddings have the dress, bouquets, a processional, a first dance, but the little moments are the ones that separate a wedding from the rest. To me, they stick out the most and make the best stories.
