Major props to Kim & John–they managed to close on a house all in the middle of wedding planning. And not only that, they finished enough work on it in time to use the wonderfully lit space for morning prep shots and first look. We love shooting in spaces with great light and minimal clutter, and this was exactly that.
Location aside, it was a pleasure to work with Kim & John. They were both great to work with, and we had a blast working alongside other friendors. Congrats again, you two!
Theresa & David came all the way from Florida to have their June wedding in Southern California. As such, we didn’t get to meet them until the day of the wedding. In our short time with them though, it was clear what sweet and amazing people they are through their interactions with one another and the way in which their closest friends and family spoke about them. We’re so happy for Theresa & David and wish them all the best on their new journey together.
There was a point when we were shooting sunset portraits with Annie & Lu where he just kept telling her how beautiful she looked. We didn’t tell him to do that for a shot, it wasn’t a first look, and a large chunk of the day had already passed. He said it because he was still awestruck by his now wife. Genuine moments like that are one of the things we love most about weddings, and this is easily one of the clear moments from the day that stand out to us. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.
As Andrea’s father said in his speech, this truly was the wedding of not only the century, but the millennium. Andrea and Alex celebrated their love surrounded by so much love. You could get a sense of the joy of the day by all the happiness from everybody in attendance early on in the ceremony, but it became evidently clear during the speeches. As Andrea’s bridesmaid (and roommate to both Andrea and Alex) said in her speech, it’s truly rare for such amazing people to exist and even rarer and more amazing for these two people to find each other.
