Brian & Kellly

July 25, 2007 | Filed Under Wedding by emi | 6 Comments 

It was such a joy to go back to Rancho Capistrano (where Michael and I got married) for Brian and Kelly’s wedding. We actually had two weddings there in the same month! So keep watch for more shots from Rancho Capistrano. It really is neat to see how the same venue, but a different couple, details and different light change the feel of the location. We challenge ourselves to shoot at locations as if it is the first time we’ve shot there, making the most of the venue, backgrounds, and just getting creative, seeing things differently.
Kelly was such an excited bride, she simply glowed all day and didn’t stop smiling. Kelly surprised Brian with a bagpipe player at the ceremony because Brian is crazy about bagpipes. He was truly surprised. Of course, with all the beautiful hills and giant Oak trees we had to bust out the IR for a few shots.

Loyola Love

July 19, 2007 | Filed Under Wedding by emi | 3 Comments 

Jared & Jamie met while attending Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and it seemed only fitting for them to go back to where Jared proposed to have their wedding ceremony. Just outside the chapel is the John Patrick Hanna Bench where Jared asked his love to spend a lifetime with him. The bench has a plaque that reads “Intended for occupancy by couples of marriageable age with reasonable expectations that their present relationship may lead to holy matrimony and that in this beautiful setting, they may seriously discuss the future and such other matters of mutual interest.” There are a few images of the bench below.

Our great day with the couple started off at Casa Del Mar, then onto the Loyola Marymount Chapel and back to Casa Del Mar for the reception. It was a wild night on the dance floor and Michael got a fantastic action shot! I was also excited about some of our night shots. We’ve been playing around with off camera flash and the results are really dramatic. I love the feeling in the images.

Table Tops & Photo Ops

July 13, 2007 | Filed Under Check it out, Editorial by michael | Leave a Comment 

We basically started off our weekend yesterday (wednesday) for 4 days of consecutive shooting.  It was off to an all day table top shoot at the West Lake Village Inn for Ceremony Magazine at 6:00am. Today we headed down to the Naval base in San Diego for Teresa & Dallon’s wedding which was cool ( complete post with photos later ).  My good friend Ryan Phillips (one of L.A’s top photographers) asked me help him with a wedding down in Orange County, so I’ll be working with him tomorrow. Then on Saturday we have Paola & Eric’s wedding close to home at the Atheneum here in Pasadena.

I was hoping to get a few more weddings on the blog by Sunday so keep your fingers crossed, because it might end up being a really long weekend!
