Just a few images from this weekend’s wedding at the River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard
Can’t wait to edit the rest!
Gregg contacted me asking for me to document his proposal to Kayla on a beautiful Friday evening.
He had it all planned out; they were going for a sunset cruise on a friend’s boat, I was to “hang out” at the end of the jetty in Marina Del Rey (with my non-obtusive 400mm lens), they would turn the boat just right, he would get down on bended knee and pop the question.
The days leading up to the big evening, fires were raging in San Diego. Gregg was concerned with air quality and ash, I told him it shouldn’t be a problem, but in fact, it will work to our advantage and create an amazing sunset!
And it was an AMAZING sunset!
The whole evening was perfect! Kayla had no idea what was about to happen!
I met Kristin and Sara at a coffee shop for a wedding consult, and I instantly felt their love for each other.
They were so excited to plan their wedding, and I just knew I wanted to be part of such a momentous occasion.
Only in the past few years have same-sex couples in California been legally able to solidify their relationship by getting married.
Kristin and Sara are a beautiful testament to what true love is….
They got married in my hometown of La Canada, CA, at the Thursday Club. A beautiful venue that lent itself perfectly to such a perfect wedding.
And thanks to wonderful Rachel, who allowed us in to Descanso Gardens for the most amazing wedding portraits ever.
Descanso Gardens has such a special place in my heart, I grew up going there almost every Sunday as a child. It was blossomed (ha! no pun intended!) into the most beautiful place I’ve seen in years.
Thank you Kristin and Sara, for allowing me to be a part of, and to capture such an important milestone in your lives!
I am truly honored!
My “little” cousin got married!
I call him my little cousin, although he’s only a couple of years younger than I am, and I don’t think he’s ever actually been shorter!
He and his new wife asked me to photograph their wedding, and I was absolutely thrilled!
Despite having a broken leg, nothing was stopping me from shooting his wedding!
(I fell down a month earlier and broke my leg, had surgery the next day and am now walking around like Bionic Woman with a plate and 7 screws holding it all together)
I rented a knee scooter, yes, these exist! And have been more mobile, and working, than I would have been ever with crutches!
I love intimate weddings, and generally when I photograph my client’s backyard weddings, it makes me feel like part of the family. This time, it was my family and we had such a great time.
The backyard was beautiful at my Aunt and Uncle’s house, everything was in bloom and we had the most perfect warm spring night.
Thank you Frankie and Cecilia, it was truly an honor to capture your wedding!
