Amanda & Read

» View Full Post

Friday, April 25th, 2008 -

Yesterday was a day I’ve been looking forward to for sometime. Stephanie and I got to attend and photograph our best friend and one of my studios star photograher Amanda’s wedding. Amanda has become such a close friend to Stephanie and I over the years. We consider her family. She calls us her California family. It was such an amazing wedding. It was a very small event. I believe there were about 25 people total. It was one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever been a part of. It was a full day of tears and laughs. It was a roller coaster ride of amazing emotion all day. Everybody shed tears. Including Stephanie and myself. We were a mess. I loved it!!! It is always so great to see a couple so happy and full of love on their wedding day. Besides the love between Amanda and Read. The love that both of their families have is so amazing. It was such a blessing for Stephanie and I to be a part of it.

Amanda and Stephanie worked together on so many details of the day. The went fabric shopping together for her amazing dress that Stephanie made for her. The went feather shopping to pick out amazing feathers for her shoes, her bouquet and more.

Check out these cool shoes

Her cute dress.

Check out this feather bouquet. We are going to start selling these in our dress shop. Feathers are a great alternative to doing a flower bouquet if a bride is looking to do something different.

Amanda got Read an amazing pocket watch for a gift.

Amanda picked the famous Don Johnson to conduct the ceremony. A very good choice. Don married Stephanie and I 3 years ago.
Here he is giving Read some words of wisdom.

Another great use of feathers.

Time to get Amanda in her dress. She was so excited. Stephanie and Amanda’s mother helped her get into the dress.

I could have kept posting more images. This is already a very long post. I had to stop. There was just so many great moments. It was so great to be a guest and a photographer at the same time.
Amanda & Read I wish you an amazing life together.

ALi & Rich Jamaica Wedding

» View Full Post

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008 -

Much of the week before the wedding was raining. We were very happy to see a beautiful sunny day for the wedding. The only thing we had to battle this day was the heat. This was not your typical destination wedding. It was more like a hometown wedding for Ali. Since she grew up in Jamaica. The ceremony took place at a local church and the reception was at a beautiful property called laughing waters. Many of the guests at the wedding actually lived in Jamaica.

I just love that beautiful blue water.

Ali was so excited all day. I loved it. Here she is when she first put on her dress.

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008 -

It was such great weather on Sunday and Monday I was excited to get to hangout at the beach doing engagement sessions. Sunday was a blast with Kathleen & Renzo. It was perfect weather to jump in the ocean.

I like to start off with a couple safe shots.

Enough of the safe shots.

This doesn’t look good. They better hold their breath.

I had to put this shot. They are under this wave somewhere. I hope they don’t hate me after they make it up for air.

I love the look on Renzo’s face after just getting rolled by that wave.
