Last Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting Dylan & Christine’s wedding day! The weather was amazing and so was the light! You might remember Dylan and Christine’s engagement session I posted on my blog late last year. I had so much fun shooting this awesome couple at Paramount Studios last year I knew that their wedding was going to be amazing!! There are so many amazing images from Dylan & Christine’s wedding day that I couldn’t post them all here on my blog!

The day started off at the gorgeous Redbury Hotel with Christine and her girls getting ready.
Christine is a very talented make-up artist who has helped many of brides look amazing on their wedding day, so it makes sense she would handle her make-up herself.
After some shots of Christine getting ready I captured some of Christine’s details from the wedding day.
Christine’s wedding shoes are one-of-a-kind hand crafted from scratch by her father!!
Christine helping her mother get ready for the big day!
I love these next ones of Christine getting help with her dress
Who better to help Christine with her shoes that the man who made them!
We had a few minutes after Christine was ready before the limo arrived to grab a couple portraits in one of the hallways of the Redbury Hotel. I just wish we had more time!
After arriving at Wilshire United Methodist Dylan & Christine did a “first look” and then we shot photos of them together in front of the church. Here are some of my favorites!
Dylan & Christine’s dog Cappy was all dressed to be the ring bearer.
Dylan and Christine broke tradition a little. Dylan and his “guys”!
Christine and her “girls”!
Here are the more traditional groupings! I think it’s great they didn’t let tradition determine who they chose to stand with them on this special day!
The whole wedding party!
Now for the ceremony! Christine’s dad walking her down the aisle
I LOVE the next 4 photos in the sequence!
I love the way Christine was looking at her soon to be husband at the start of the ceremony!

Just before their grand entrance we were able to capture the last bit of sun before it went behind the mountain.
