I believe there is some sort of blogging etiquette somewhere that states something along the lines of, less is more when it comes to your images. Although this is primarily a portrait photography blog which would stretch the grace of those rules at least a little bit, I would think. However, there is a line. I would like to start this blog acknowledging that I am aware of that line, and I’m quite sure that I’ve crossed it. I would understand if you skip right by this post in favor of something a little more, um, to the point. 😉
If you continue reading I’ll hope that you are just as smitten with these images as I am. This is a lovely couple that my husband and I have had the opportunity to love for a very long time (especially the bride) and you may remember them from an extremely fun engagement session we had down at LACMA in Los Angeles, California. Even though we’ve relocated to beautiful South Florida I was thrilled to fly out for their Southern California nuptials a few months ago.
Most of the images I selected to blog here are from their first look, or bridal portraits. This isn’t really a walk through their day, honestly these are just some of my favorite, plain and simple. She really turned out to be more of a fashion forward bride, and their portraits were just a whole lot of fun when they were all done. Their First Look was done in at the venue that their wedding was held at, it was a large park, and I found a bit of a hidden stair case to set up their moment. Then we relocated to a train station. They were just that bride and groom that had enough ‘fashion forward’ to them that we could really play with the contrast of locations. Ah and then the girls! Really, both the groomsmen and bridal attendants were just such neat people we had so much fun together so I had to include a few of those as well.
The last thing I’ll say about this beautiful event, (the reception was lovely next to the setting sun) was that I have never been at a wedding that had better chosen or more beautiful music. Now, considering both the bride and groom were music majors at Biola University it certainly makes sense, but hands down the most well done music I’ve ever heard. Everything from the 3 talented young ladies playing the theme song from Disney’s Up on strings instruments as the couple’s exit song. To the music to dance the night away with, it was lovely, all around. If you need ideas for wedding music, talk to this bride and groom!
I Hope you get lost in the images of this beautiful couple, and appreciate the 400 images I didn’t blog.
