Last Saturday I had a blast capturing Erica & David’s wedding day at Villa Cascata in Malibu. Villa Cascata sits high up in the Malibu hills overlooking the Pacific. This breathtaking private residence in Malibu has been used for many Hollywood productions and photoshoots; among the most recent is the America’s Next Top Model season 16 premiere.
Erica is originally from Texas and David is from the United Kingdom. Both came to LA for separate reasons but I can see how they make a perfect match with David being a very talented graphic designer and Erica being in the printing business.

I always love when my couples opt for a 2nd photographer for their wedding day. My amazing 2nd shooter for the day was Doug McNamee. Doug captured some amazing images, more than enough to make this post twice as big. Make sure you don’t miss two of my favorites from him in this post.
Here are some of my favorites from this “across the pond” couple.
These pins were being given out to celebrate the new couple’s wedding day.

I love how Doug captured the recessional using his Canon tilt-shift lens
Such a good looking and fun wedding party
Erica made a beautiful bride
I love this shot of David
Erica made sure I knew that she wanted at least one good picture of her and David together. I always do my best to go above and beyond what my clients ask. Here are just a few of my favorites of Erica & David.
