Kat and Jan were married at the end of summer at the Retro Ranch in Temecula, California. They were referred to me by one of our  favorite second shooters, Ferdinand.

Kat and Jan both love to rock climb and paintball- I doubt they do both at the same time, but I may have just created a new sport.

From what I can remember, it was 110 degrees on their wedding day- people were anxiously fanning themselves to stave the heat.

A dry hot wind blew and it made it hard for the mothers’ to light the candle as the ceremony started.

The anxiety went disappeared and time slowed as soon as Kat began walking down the aisle.

There were several tears that dropped and laughters shared that day.

My favorite moment was when Kat’s dad had pulled the trigger a bit too soon and mistook Kat and Jan’s first dance as the father-daughter dance. Jan played on like a true gentleman and kept his cool.

Right after the first dance, a flashmob broke out and a large group of cousins, colleagues, and friends danced in celebration of the beautiful newlyweds.

Enjoy their photos as we enjoyed being a part of their wedding.

 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!

 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 Jon and Liz’s wild engagement session this past summer. If you haven’t checked out those photos, go ahead and do so!

 Jon’s day started in Seal Beach, in a quaint little beach house with his father and a few of his friends and his dog.

 While Liz got ready at the comfort of her Father’s house in Orange County.

Not everything goes according to plan when it comes to life in general, Jon and Liz’s wedding was not the exception.

Right after Liz’s mother laced up her dress, her brother walks up to her and tells her news that would change the course and drastically effect her wedding day.

Ari, her brother, told her that he had been on and off the phone with the Limo company for the past hour. At first they were running late, then nothing. The last call was to tell him that her sister wedding did not have the reserved limo available. Their limo broke down on the way to Orange County and the back up limo went out of commission on the way there.

Liz, takes the news kinda hard. But just like our 8 mile hike of an engagement session , she kept her chin up, moved on and figured out the ride situation for her and her wedding party.

We arrived at St Leon’s Cathedral for her wedding an hour later, with enough time to spare…

Her wedding was gorgeous, one of the most colorful I’ve been too. Her and Jon make the perfect couple, both funny, and quick witted.

Their family, just as funny. They approached me with a pretty funny request- they wanted a Mafia Style photo. Of course I obliged.
