Intimate Wedding in Newport Coast

Congrats to Shervin and Aida!  They got hitched at the courthouse and wanted the photos to prove it!  We shot on location at her mother’s home.  I first met Aida when I photographed her brother’s wedding 4 years ago. Not only is Aida beautiful, she has the brains too,  as she runs her own thriving Dental Practice.

I shot this image with my Lensbabies, the blur was captured in camera, I love the way the light illuminates the left side of her body and beautiful curly hair.

Lensflare is an amazing effect, ‘breaking the rules” and shootdirectly into the sun, it creates such a warm romantic feeling.

look how the light just illuminates part of her face and the flowers in her hair, then falls to the blackest of blacks, and you see just a hint of the relfection of her dress in the window.

I love the mood of the above image, cropping in close really reveals the love and intimacy these two feel for each other.

This image was captured using the ambient light and my 85mm at 1.2.

This was the fimal image of the day, her shoes were off, so I asked them to run towards me, I love how Shervin is looking at her, she is winning the race!

Pasadena Wedding and A classic car for icing on the cake

Peter and Patil were married in Pasadena, with reception to follow in Glendale. To transport them to the reception- they hired a classic car- my favorite part of the day. Just me, the chauffeur and the couple, documenting that magical moment of just being married.

13.5 hours married, celebrating in the pacific ocean- sunrise- with a broken foot

13.5 hours married, celebrating in the pacific ocean- sunrise- with a broken foot

me: “How’s Your Ankle?” “Broken, Sprained?!”

Bride: “Oh Yes, i found out today I broke my foot on the dance floor at the reception. Confirmed with X Rays”

me: “You are my hero.”

Bride ” Sacrifices must be made to get the shot!”

They showed up at 6:30 am the next morning, broken foot and all.  Matt carried her piggyback down to the beach, and around the beach, then back up the stairs, to their hotel #marriedlife.
