I have so much to blog, but will try to stay sequential and work my way back to the present. I begin with another fabulous wedding! Congratulations to Nancy and Al, who were married in the quaint little town of Monrovia, CA on September 15th. I must admit that I was nervous before this one! This marked the first wedding in which I had never met the couple. Nancy and I had some conversations over the phone and exchanged e-mails, but hadn’t officially met. Well, both the Bride and Groom turned out to be incredibly gracious, accommodating, and kind people. They made me feel very much a part of their special day. In fact, this ended up being one of the most enjoyable weddings to date! I’d like to thank Nancy and Al and their families for this warm welcome, it really meant a lot.
A few anticipation shots:
A friend designed the invitations, they were absolutely stunning.
The bride was stunning as well.
I love this series…
The Maid Of Honor was gorgeous.
I truly believe that the photojournalistic approach yields the very best portraits. Here are some of my favorite candids:
And a few prompted (not posed) shots…these two did not need cueing, they were naturals!
I used my macro lens to get a close-up of this yellow rose on the cake. With no Photoshop at all, this somehow ended up looking like more of a Georgia O’Keefe than an actual photograph. My photography instructor would’ve called this one a happy accident:
The ceremony took place under a nearly 100 year old fig tree. This location, drenched in the setting sun was both majestic and romantic. Nancy’s vows referenced the tree as a symbol of her love for Al. Beautiful…
Congratulations you two! Thanks again, I had a blast!
