Mission Inn Wedding Photographer ~ Nancy and John ~ The Wedding

Friday, May 28th, 2010

When Nancy called me, literally, two weeks before her wedding at the Mission Inn and said she needed a photographer, I thought she was kidding. Then, when I met her and John, I was still in disbelief. Here’s this super nice, really attractive couple wanting to book me 14 days before their wedding?

Well, OK then.

We met and about 45 minutes later we had all the details worked out; it also helped that when we did need to meet before the wedding again, our families literally live about 10 minutes from each other. Bonus.

I am still in disbelief as to how smoothly the entire day went-it was actually, AHEAD OF SCHEDULE (with Nancy being a chemist, I can’t say I was that surprised, but still…it’s a wedding, things happen). It was so ahead of schedule, in fact, that it allowed us to take advantage of a rare, quiet afternoon around the historic hotel grouns for some amazing photos.

These next two photos are why I *always* encourage brides and grooms to hire two photographers. Here is my version:

Malibu West Beach Club Wedding Photographer ~ Nancy and Mike ~ The Wedding

Friday, May 28th, 2010

When my friend Debbie from Get Reel asked me to shoot Nancy and Mike’s Malibu West Beach Club wedding with her, I was so excited. I’ve been working with Debbie for years, just as a videographer, so I was excited to work with her as a photographer! We had a great time; nice couple, fantastic location, and beautiful details. Thanks for asking me to shoot with you, Debbie-looking forward to doing it again.

Baby James

This is another of Brian’s amazing infant sessions. Baby James was so sweet and took to Brian right away; it was like he was born to pose for the camera!
