The bride wanted candid photos and it was so much fun to be a “fly on the wall”… capturing real & natural love & happiness.

Cessily & Tom: Married

Just sharing a peek into Cessily & Tom’s beautiful wedding! These two were married at the Newport Beach LDS Temple. I was so happy to have Tonya Joy alongside me to shoot this fun wedding.

I love all of the details of the day….

…that come together…

…to make the day, lovely….beautiful…and perfect.

Cessily and Tom are beautiful.

Cessily, you are gorgeous!

I always love to photograph a couple….to capture the little things they do that speak so clearly of how they feel for each other. The little touches, laughs, soft kisses, the way the groom looks at his bride…. I am always honored to witness, to capture those moments. Those looks. Those feelings.

Cessily & Tom-You two are beautiful! Thank you for inviting me to be present to capture your moments, memories & love! Congrats you two!

Miranda & Jordan: Hitched, (last year!)

I love this couple. They are hot hot hot…and they kinda met on my blog. (long story, but it’s a rad one!) I was so happy I got to take pics of these two during their short visit in California last month! (These two just moved from Brazil…to China!)

I love my cute little train station location :)

Miranda…you are hot hot hot.

MJ & Jordan- good luck in China! We will miss you two! xoxo

Like I said, Jenn + Byron= Gorgeous.
