Melissa and Greg had a beautiful wedding in Long Beach this past weekend at the Long Beach Museum of Art. I first met them back in March, as they described a “fun, beachy, and relaxed” wedding with a balance of colors of pink and navy with succulents and orchids. On their wedding day, they chose to have a first look before the ceremony followed by formal pictures of their family. I’ve photographed weddings at the Museum of Art a handful of times, and it’s always a challenge to do something new and unique. For the first look, we found a beautiful spot in the lobby by the fireplace where the light was coming though the windows, overlooking the ocean. Some fun elements of their evening included a photobooth and ice-cream (of which I had 2 helpings, guilty!). To check out the progress of their album design click HERE. Friend and family can see all wedding images online HERE.
Emme and Rick had a beautiful wedding this past weekend at Ponte Winery in Temecula, CA. Emme is a clothing designer and Rick a firefighter/ aspiring wedding photographer and together they have a sweet little girl who is almost three years old. Most of the family and guests traveled from Ohio to celebrate their destination wedding. Planning her wedding from out of state, Emme had to rely on her instincts with many details of her day. The first moment we ever met in person was when I walked in the door to her bridal suite and she was smiles all day long. The wedding was intimate and everyone danced well into the night. I’m so honored to have been part of this special day.
Gina and Issy had a beautiful intimate ceremony overlooking the beach at the Long Beach Art Museum this past weekend. Unlike most of my couples, Gina booked me for her wedding over the phone, without ever meeting me in person. One of her first questions to me was if I have photographed an older couple before followed by her second question if I had ever photographed a Jewish wedding before…. After sharing some samples, she felt confident we were a great match and I’m so glad she did! Gina would describe her wedding as “untraditional” with a mix of bright colors of yellow, blue, and pinks. She wore a navy evening gown with crystal beading and Issy wore a suit. Here’s some of my favorite pictures from their day!
