Jenn and Shane ~ The Wedding

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

So, the one thing about being a terrible blogger is that when I go through photos to post, it’s like getting to relive the day again (yes, they got their photos AGES ago). This wedding was particularly bittersweet for me. This was the last wedding I did before deciding to cut back to part time and make my MSW program my full time priority. Tears may have been shed-which, is a good thing. To me, it meant that being a wedding photographer for all these years was the right decision, and it’s definitely not something I want to give up entirely anytime soon. And Jenn and Shane were just the right couple to end my terrific run with. They were super sweet, didn’t seem phased by anything that went wrong, were just incredible to be around, and if you ever get the chance to attend a wedding with LAFD firefighters-truly a great group to be around (even in light of their um, “cake customization” tradition).

Alyssa and Kevin ~ The Wedding

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Recently, I finished designing Kevin and Alyssa’s album, and like I told them, I LOVED their choices. The images they chose out of the many hundreds they received really showed their love of friends, the importance of their families, and their love for each other. It also brought back what a beautiful they they had. Their wedding was at the stunning Hartley Botanica complete with Sparkler exit! (It was pretty exciting). Here are some of the other vendors that helped make up their incredible day:

Officiate: Rabbi Barry Lutz
Flowers: Mr. B’s Flowers (love these guys)
Coordinator: Bella Dia
