Jessica and Jacob are a sweet couple from North Carolina who wanted to have a fun wedding in Southern California close to their family. Their day was filled with laughs, love, and lots of fun! Jess wore custom converse shoes in mint and yellow, and Jacob wore his Marine uniform and their dogs were right by their side all night long from their first dance to the last! Here’s some of my favorite images.
As Marnie and Scott played on the sand and shared loving glances, it made me remembered why I love my job so much. Marnie and Scott are a photographer’s dream couple. Not only do they have All-American good looks and charm, they also have great style, and were open to having lots of fun. Marnie and Scott are both from the Ohio area, and will be transplanting to the Southern California area later this year. They ended up coming out to one of my favorite photo spots in Laguna Beach, staying at the Art Hotel right along PCH for the weekend. As a highlight of their trip, they wanted to celebrate their engagement with a fun photo shoot.

I’ve never been to a wedding before, were the number of guests wearing white, out numbered the bride 6 to 1. Julie and Travis celebrated a sweet brunch wedding last weekend at the Long Beach Museum of Art. Travis, the groom, is a pilot in the Navy and wore his dress whites. A few of his military friends also wore the same, and everyone looked sharp! This wedding had a couple of firsts for me, being a morning wedding as well as the first one of the year. For some photographers, shooting in all natural lighting sounds easy because you don’t have to mess with lighting, but I took the opportunity to use a blend of all natural settings as well as fill flash. I think it really helped some of the images pop, especially with the processional sword arch. That might be my new favorite image of the year.
After Julie and Travis saw all of their images, I received a wonderful message from Julie that I’d love to share.
“Thank you so much for everything! It was such a pleasure getting to meet you. I am usually such a disaster and am so awkward in front of a camera and you magically got some amazing shots! You were really, really awesome to work with and I hope that we get the opportunity to work with you again some time. We feel truly blessed and so fortunate to have someone as amazing as you photograph our wedding. The pictures are absolutely amazing. Thank you for all the time you spent with us!” ~Julie & Travis
