Marie + Todd | Brief Hipster Wedding in Altadena

Wedding

Like I’ve shown before in many of my posts, not everything about weddings need to be extravagant or over the top to be something special. While there is nothing wrong of course with some decadence and flair to a wedding, sometimes keeping it intimate is the better route to take. Truthfully, the reason this is happening is because of two people and their love, so what matters is what they want to do to celebrate that, not to give into norms. Most of my couples have this way of thinking, which is one of the reasons why they are so awesome.

That’s how Marie and Todd felt about their wedding. After having a very private ceremony with family and friends, I met them in Altadena at the Sam Merrill Trail for a quick shoot of their awesome wedding duds.

Fans of that vintage style and glamour, both Todd and Marie’s amazing looks made for some very cute photos in the short amount of time I had the pleasure of working with them. A bit of a hipster mix styled with vintage Hollywood pizazz, these shots came out fantastic and I think shows their style, humor and adoration for each other.

Vanessa + Aaron | Seaside Colorful Wedding in Pacific Grove
When I found out that Vanessa and Aaron booked the Asilomar Conference Ground in Pacific Grove as their venue I of course immediately looked online to get an idea. I was not disappointed. The images I found where beautiful and I knew that any venue walking distance from the beautiful beaches of California is going to be amazing. I’ve said before that having a personal relationship with your client is integral to making sure they get amazing photos. I think as a photographer it’s of course about observing; watching the world as it happens and documenting. But weddings are far more intimate in their closeness of the family, the new connections ...

Kelly + Scott | Gorgeous Summer Wedding at Sequoyah Golf Course
This beautiful wedding was shot at the Sequoyah Golf Course in Oakland this past year. Not gonna lie, it was probably one of those most fun events I’ve had in a while. Life gets crazy sometimes. Unfortunately due to hectic schedules for the couple, there wasn't a chance for us to spend a lot of time together before the big day. Lucky for me though, Scott and Kelly are freaking awesome. I am still amazed about how easy going and open of a couple they were. It wasn’t much into the wedding before I felt I had made new friends with them and the family. You could really tell how close all of their family and friends are. They all have been togeth ...
