Sometimes inclement weather can actually make a wedding more interesting. Southern California has hundreds of sunny days per year, most of those weddings take place under the blue skies, and a bright sun. But Jason and Virginia took places at one of the most beautiful venues under dark clouds and some downpour.

Things may not fall into place beautifully, though. Situations get hectic and sometimes chaos takes over, but then right when the weather seems its darkest the clouds part and moments just seem to magically work themselves out.

The way we see it, bad weather isn’t something to frown about during a wedding. Although it may seem like it’s destroying your wedding, but it’s actually creating a more interesting wedding story for your children.

While we were photographing Kevin and Brittany’s bridal prep photos we noticed a photo in a frame of two little kids standing next to a drinking fountain, the little boy had a smirk on his face and was looking at the girl next to him. Later on in the day our Associate Photographer, John, asked them how they met. Apparently Brittany and Kevin met at during first grade, we were shocked, we’ve been to numerous high school sweetheart weddings, but it’s very rare to see a couple who had seen eye to eye since the first grade.

After the stunning wedding at St Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, on the way to our romantic session with the Brittany and Kevin, we passed by the Elementary School where they first met and we were able to reenact the photo that was taken so many years ago.

We saw sparks between Kevin and Brittany during their first look. From the moment Kevin first saw her in her dress, his eyes teared up. He walked briskly and nervously and tapped her on her shoulder. As soon as she turned and saw him, it was like we stopped existing and time slowed down, we don’t intervene during moments like these and we gave them their privacy and the intimacy that only a first look can give them.

When Marlene & Fernando got married it was all about tradition. One of those traditions being not seeing each other prior to the ceremony. The nice thing was that they allotted plenty of time after their ceremony for their romantic session together. We started out at Union train station for some of their pre wedding photos. Then after the ceremony were ran over to the Disney Concert Hall for their romantic session. I’ve been wanting to have an all B&W post for a while. So here it is. Please feel free to leave comments. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

Who should I pick to be my bridesmaids? After you get engaged, your first thoughts are, what date will be the best for us and our family.  Then you proceed to think, I have always wanted an outdoor wedding, where should we have our wedding? Locations add to the fun of your wedding. After all the hub-bub of when and where, you ask yourself, who?   Who should I choose to be my bridesmaids?

Bridesmaids are usually chosen based on how close certain people are to you.  Maybe a childhood friend or and very close cousin.   In my opinion I think the people you choose should make you, the bride, happy, laugh, and have your back.  After all, this is the most important day of your life and you will need the people who can detour stress, fears and create an easy going environment during your wedding day. After 13 years of shooting weddings, I pretty much have seen and heard it all.  It makes me cringe to hear after the wedding that you and a certain bridesmaid or MOH are no longer friends based on events that happened at your wedding. Choosing your bridesmaids needs to be like choosing your girls that will go to war for you.  That being said, enjoy the images below.
