One of the main reasons why I love photographing weddings is how easy it is to capture the essence of the love a couple shares in the months leading up to their wedding. It is at it’s peak, so pure and openly worn on their sleeves, it’s hard to hide and when couples look back at the photos of this time in their lives, they are reminded of why they committed to each other to begin with. No marriage or relationship is without it’s rough times and hopefully these images help to rekindle old feelings that may have gotten lost in the daily grind of marriage and family life. Dustin + Mimi were so easy to work with–their love, mutual respect and admiration for each was so evident–it made our job that much easier and that much more fulfilling to do. Can’t wait to celebrate their marriage this weekend!
It was a pretty HOT day when we photographed these two back in June, but I love how sweet Lily + Matt are with each other despite the crazy weather. Both easy going, fun to work with and all smiles!! One can evidently see how well they mesh and fell in love in the first place. Ecstatic to see their day finally come together this weekend with a grand celebration at the Fairmont in Newport and the VENUE in HB.
I’ve known Frances for probably 8 years now and have seen her make the big move from Texas to adapt to the California lifestyle. She’s always been incredibly kind, down to earth and so chill to hang with. I’m proud to call her my friend and so very happy to see her find the one in “gentle giant” Brian. We’re flying to Houston this weekend to capture their wedding day and of course to party it up to celebrate their union.
