Tim was my first college roommate at Cal Poly SLO. I’ve known him for 15 years now, and I was super excited to be a part of his wedding. I don’t take it lightly when friends choose me as their photographer, since the photos are the one thing you hang on to for the rest of your lives. This wedding had too many hand-crafted details to display all of them, but the way it all fit the forest surroundings made the entire thing feel like it was planned by the ferns and moss themselves. It was one of the many weddings I’ve shot where 2 cultures (and languages) were mixed to create something even more beautiful than the sum of their parts. They are currently on a road-trip honeymoon to Yellowstone!
This wedding was held at an estate in Newport Beach, rich with family history and TONS of details. These guys thought of everything! Also, they basically didn’t stop laughing the entire day. It was truly an honor to be there and capture the moments on this special day. My pal Rustin was there to help me capture it all, many of these below are his.
Andrew and Katie were married on Saturday in Corona Del Mar at the Sherman Library and Gardens. I had driven by hundreds of times but never stopped in. What a hidden gem! I knew this would be a beautiful wedding but I was still taken aback by the variety of flora as well as the bride’s careful use of the different areas that could be decorated. Special thanks to Rustin Michael for being a great 2nd photographer.
Seeing your little girl as a bride for the first time has to be one of the proudest moments as a father. Having a daughter has changed my perspective on this so much.
The “blind prayer” is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and finally someone did it!
The Matron of Honor (Christina) chose me be her wedding photographer at her wedding a few years ago, and referred me to Katie. It is always fun to have familiar faces at a wedding, and she was fantastic support to Katie as well.
Their ride into the sunset was a classic Bentley, accompanied by a sparkler exit!
