Troy and Aimee – Strawberry Farms Wedding Photography

December 7th, 2009

Troy is a great photographer in his own right, and I was shooting alongside celebrity wedding photographer Robert Evans, so I was a little nervous to say the least!  Robert amazed me with his calm attitude and willingness to teach while getting amazing photos and even some “fusion” video.  Robert has shot weddings for stars like Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes, Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston, to mention a few.

Troy and Aimee are two of the kindest people you will meet, and their wedding reminded my why I do what I do.  Their wedding was expertly decorated, executed and documented, while still retaining the true essence of matrimonial love and commitment that no wedding should be without.

Helen and Michael – Wayfarer’s Chapel

May 13th, 2009

Helen and Michael had one of the classiest weddings I’ve seen in a while, and it was on a Thursday!  I went to High School with Helen, and she is such a beautiful bride.  The guests were so much fun, and the food was awesome, plus, the amazing Troy Grover shot alongside me.  I made a slideshow, which can be found by clicking here:

Kathy and Fred’s Wedding – Strawberry Farms, Irvine, CA

April 22nd, 2009

Fred and Kathy are the kind of couple you know will be together forever.  I’ve known Fred since we lived in Kazakhstan together in 2004, and it’s been fun to go through a similar stage in life as we both returned to the US and found the loves of our lives.  I had the incredible Troy Grover assisting me, as well as my wife Masha.  Check out Troy’s blog for more of his shots.  I shot their awesome engagement shoot at Irvine Park back in March, and as soon as they described it all to me, I knew this was going to be an amazing wedding.  Don’t forget to see their slideshow here (with music).  On to the images!
