Corey & Brianna - The James, Chicago

Finally getting around to posting this amazing wedding. Corey & Brianna make me want to be a better man. I wish I had half the chops, charm, wit, and style they have. (*smiley face*). They had an absolutely stunning wedding, and in spite of some nasty weather we still managed to sneak outside (Art Institute of Chicago) and grab some pics between rain drops. We even got to visit Sue (ya know - the T-REX!!) at Field. Basically, this day was awesome.

Anthony & Yvette's Angellic Engagement Session

The longer I live here the more I fall in love with this city. Such a vast array of things to be explored, amazing light year round, and some of the best people you will ever meet. This session was the perfect combination of everything of all these things. Anthony & Yvette  nailed this session and I had so much fun spending the day with them capturing some awesome moments and some fun portraits. They made my day by exploring the city with me and I can't wait to photograph their wedding! I especially love the Angel Wings found at Angel City Brewery. Gonna add some more soon, but couldn't help but to share these for now. Enjoy. 3W6A6558-2

Mark & Brianne's Garden Wedding - San Diego

I knew after Mark & Brianne's engagement session (see those pics here) that their wedding was going to be one beautifully fun day packed with laughs, lots of PDA (wink wink), and awesome details. I was right. Plus Levyland Estates was such a beautiful and fun departure from some of the more traditional venues. was Congrats you guys! I have had so much fun being part of your creative team and I wish you both a life filled with daily reminders of just how much you love and cherish each other. Thanks for being so much fun! You guys rock! Event Planning by: The Dainty Lion

Vintage Bridal Session - Pasadena California

We had a little fun designing and executing this bridal session (I even got to play florist for a day. How did I do? Like that headband? Haha). Such a stunning couple and a truly beautiful day. I especially enjoyed creating an entire living room space in the middle of the forest (be sure to check out the full blog entry to see what I mean). Chelsi & Matt you guys are amazing!! Special thanks to the whole team (especially Sonja!) for an awesome day and a special shout out to Mags Cathey on her always amazing makeup work. Be sure to check her out!!3W6A1495PS6

Matt & Brittany's Epic Wedding!

Can Awesomeness be a theme? Cause that's what this wedding was. Featuring: Iron Man on the dance floor, glow sticks, silly string, bubble gum, and a Les Miserables themed flash mob that will blow your mind. Plus, any wedding where the bride and groom dive off a stage for some amazing crowd surfing has to be labeled as "awesome at its best", right? If all of that wasn't enough, the pinnacle of the whole day - our lovely bride and groom - have to be two of the coolest cats in town. Seriously amazing people literally bursting with personality, fun, love, and kindness. Separately these two are a forced to be reckoned with. Together? Unstoppable. Congrats to this super-power couple. I am blessed to know you and so stoked I got to be part of your epic day!

San Francisco Wedding - Vigen & Cristina

Road trip! Kicked off the first of many bay area weddings this year with Vigen & Cristina's San Francisco wedding. Let me tell you, this was one fun, elegant, crazy, and beautiful day. All I can say is Vigen and Cristina, you guys rock! But don't take my word for it, I think the pics speak for themselves. Plus we got to shoot at the infamous Palace of Fine Arts as well as The Bridges Golf Club. Hard to go wrong there.

Thanks heaps and heaps to Vigen and Cristina for having us as a part of your unforgettable day. My cheeks are still sore from smiling. You two are an absolutely perfect match and we wish you nothing but a life full of love, beauty, adventure, and laughter.

Wedding at Castle Green - Till & Roxanne

This wedding felt like something out of a James Bond movie. Tuxedos, bow ties, cool cars, and of course the beautiful love interest. Or in this case, Roxanne, an absolutely stunning bride. But above all, what really stood out to me about this wedding was the overwhelming sense of love and family. Two different families from different parts of the world came together to form one new family and to embrace Till & Roxanne as they took their first steps as husband and wife. The whole day hummed with the buzz of excitement, laughter, love, and unity set to the backdrop of the famous Castle Green in Pasadena as well as the beautiful Pasadena City Hall. Congrats to Till & Roxanne! May you both have a life full of love, family, adventure, and success!
