Orange County Wedding Photography – Jason & Marina 04/21/2013

Last weekend I tagged along with Christopher Wren Photography to help him capture Jason & Marina’s wedding day.  I have only been a 2nd photographer a handful of times in my photography career so it was a little different to be working at wedding without being the one in charge when it comes to photos.  A 2nd photographer is responsible for capturing different angles, going to a separate location if needed while the couple is getting ready, and backing up the main photographer.  One of the nice things about all this is there is less stress and responsibility as a 2nd photographer so you have a little more freedom to take more risks.

Here are a few of my favorites from Jason & Marina’s special day!

Marina picked these bright blue comfortable TOMS shoes to wear on her special day.

I love the deep breath Marina is taking as she is approaching Jason for their first look.

After we arrived at the church I spent time with the girls and captured this great moment as Marina and her girls prayed before the ceremony.

Thanks again to Chris for letting me join him last weekend. It was great to see him work and I made a few mental notes on how I can continue to grow this year as a photographer!

Los Angeles Engagement Photography – Lorne & Elizabeth

Just before we had baby Tabitha, Claudia, from Stacy Porras Wedding Consulting, contacted me letting me know her best friend, Elizabeth, is getting married later this summer and needed a wedding photographer!  Claudia and I have worked together in the past and she knew I would be a perfect fit to capture Elizabeth and Lorne’s wedding day!  After communicating with Elizabeth and Lorne, who live in Arizona, over the phone and email about their wedding plans they chose me to capture their special day.

This past weekend Lorne & Elizabeth were in town so we spent some time in Downtown Los Angeles shooting their engagement session.  Both Lorne and Elizabeth are kind and dedicated to helping others: Lorne is a cardiologist, and Elizabeth a physician assistant.   Lorne and I enjoyed chatting about baseball and my favorite team, the Phillies.   He is related to a former Phillies player, who became very famous with the Oakland A’s after being released by the Phillies.  I am so excited to capture their wedding later this year at the Montage Laguna Beach!

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session! Thanks again to Natalie Fong for assisting!

[…] Last Friday I was blessed to be able to capture Lorne & Elizabeth’s beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Montage Laguna Beach. When I arrived at the Montage, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, it looked like it was going to be a beautiful day with bright blue skies and hopefully a beautiful sunset. We were not let down! I am so thankful that Elizabeth’s best friend Claudia connected me with this amazing couple. You can read a little more about their story on my post from their engagement session. […]

Los Angeles Engagement Photography – Brian & Jenny

Yesterday I spent some fun time with Jenny & Brian wandering around a couple blocks of the Los Angeles Arts District for their engagement session. I have known this lovely couple for a while, as they were guests at Adam & Victoria’s wedding! Once they decided they were ready to start planning their wedding they reached out to me to set up a meeting. That initial meeting in my studio was nearly two years ago!

During our meeting we talked about their hopes and plans for their wedding day and the personal goals they had before tying the knot. The biggest one was for Brian to finish up law school and pass the bar. Brian rocked his final classes in law school and passed the bar and most recently landed his first law career job!

Later this summer, a little more than two years after that meeting in my studio, they will make it official. I am so excited to for Jenny & Brian and blessed that they trusted me to capture their special day!

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session yesterday. Thanks again to Jonathan Narvaez for assisting.
