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.

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.

I had the pleasure recently to deliver this beautifully designed, custom, leather album to Anthony and Lauraine.  Anthony is a dental student in New York and should be finishing his DDS very soon. Anthony and Lauraines’s wedding ceremony took place at  St. Martin de Porres  in Yorba Linda Ca.  Right after the ceremony we were able to run out to a couple of local near by locations. The Fullerton Arboretum and the Downtown Fullerton Train station for their romantic session.

Our Signature Albums are all handcrafted, and completely custom made for all of our studios clients.  Our album supplier uses only the finest Argentinian leather made.  Anthony and Lauraine chose to go with the signature classic leather style with a signature design album design.  Our signature design style is one of my favorites for its clean, fresh and simple style. Remember folks, more is not always better. Many times I will have clients who will want to place a large number of images into an album. Our studio tries to tell your wedding day story using only the best images of your wedding day to create a timeless story.  In doing so we treat all of our Signature albums as a work of art.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment to congratulate Anthony and Lauraine.

Daisy likes Beretta and Rob likes his Glocks. Sometimes two people that work together can have amazing chemistry with each other. These two are no exception. These two met at the range after they were assigned to the lanes next to each other. After trying each other’s pistols, they found that they have much more in common than their weekly range trips.

Several rounds and a couple years down the road, these two have decided to get married. Their Wedding taking place in San Juan Capistrano, these two could not have found a better to venue for their wedding. After getting ready, Rob and Daisy elected to have a first look right before their ceremony.

First Looks are a great way to get romantic photos before the wedding ceremony. It does break tradition, but don’t let that fool you. The anticipation, the romance, and all the emotions are all still there. A first look is one of the few times during a wedding that a couple can take some time to slow down and appreciate each other before their day goes from 0-60. During this time a groom has a chance to appreciate the details in her dress, her hair, and smell her perfume before it fades, even her lovely smile. While the bride can embrace him before anybody else can and inspect the little details that makes his suit his, it could be his cuff links, his tie, and in this case, the pistol he chose to carry to his wedding. While breaking tradition is generally frowned upon, it’s a great idea to slow down and enjoy the little things.
