I don’t think there’s a better way to say how much I love this wedding other than “I really love this wedding!” It was nice, beautiful, simple yet elegant. This Marriot Newport Beach Wedding provided such a nice space for both Jenny and Kevin’s ceremony and reception. The ceremony was outdoors in really, really, really, nice and cool weather. I didn’t even break a sweat shooting this wedding, and the lighting (overcast) during the ceremony was sooo amazing. It couldn’t have been any better! And the reception…gorgeous! Look at all the cute little details! Jenny, you’re an artistic genius!

I think I want my own wedding like this. I really think I do. I can say that right?

Congratulations to the both of  you, Jenny and Kevin! And thank you so much for being such a sweet, easy-going, and amazing couple. I know I say that a lot, but you guys are so amazing, thank you thank you thank you for having me photograph your wedding.

I’ve photographed in snow, rain, darkness, hotness, coldness, and even in fire but during this shoot, I encountered something I’ve never encountered before: extreme winds. Notice I said extreme. The winds were in fact extreme. The ice cream we bought to use in our photos would drip horizontally. That’s how extreme it was.

Speaking of extreme, it was also my first time working with nerf guns. Freakin’ awesome (and extreme.) Whippin’ those bad boys out was reminiscent of my good old youth. I loved them, and I had so much fun with them. Anybody remember the Super Soaker 200? Yeahh, good ol’ days.

Meet Kim and Randy. We photographed their engagement session in Santa Barbara so I had plenty of time to chat up a conversation with them on our mini trip. I think I asked Randy (who’s a vet) every single question about animals that I ever wanted to know and every hypothetical animal question that I could think of as well such as “Would you give CPR to your dog, mouth to mouth?” He replied yes in case you were wondering. That’s how I knew he was a good vet.

So enjoy our beautiful and nerfy photos!

The first time I met Sheila and Joel, Kaden didn’t exist yet, so meeting Kaden was a nice little surprise! And he’s pretty cute! On top of that, he’s so easy to take photographs of! He’s got chubby cheeks and has hair like his father, and of course his outfit was put together by his fashionista mother icon smile Meet Sheila and Joel. Theyre engaged. Oh and meet Kaden! His favorite toy is a giraffe! I think his second favorite toy is my camera.
