Not only was the couple beautiful inside and out, they were very photogenic and made our jobs easier.
This was a first for me... they had a "self adornment table" set up in the woods so everyone could have a boutonniere or corsage. I've never seen that at a wedding before and I've been to a bunch.
The redwood grove is a spectacular place for a wedding ceremony:
I think this is my favorite shot so far (I still haven't gone through all of the photos... so many!). I love this one because it's straight out of the camera, no Photoshop. I love how the light is peaking through the trees, bouncing off the orange, yellow, red and pink flower petals at their feet, and bouncing some colorful light back up into her face and under her arm. Her expression is perfect and she looks so happy and excited to be getting married.
I also love this one and the couple is about to sneak another kiss before being escorted up the aisle by a piper.
A real moment only seconds after coming up the aisle. I'd like to thank the tree on the right for bending perfectly to help frame my image. (the trees on the left did a fine job as well).
The reception inside of this old rustic barn was incredible.
The light pouring through the windows during the first dance was special!
It truly was a very joyous occasion:
After the first course, I snuck them out of the reception for 5 or 6 minutes to catch some tasty light at the end of the day:
The bride & her dad sharing a special moment.
A view from just outside of the barn. By the way, the LA AllStars had the crowd rockin' all night long. They were amazing!
Thanks for checking out my latest work. I'd love to hear your feedback so please leave me some feedback below. Scott Andrew a friend of mine from the [ b ] School also came along and shot with me and should be posting some images soon. Here's a sneak peak:
