Despite the sweltering hot 118 degree weather, Erika and Ted were incredibly cool. I’m kind of proud of that little pun I just threw in there. But really, the incredible journey to Palm Springs, during which I saw my thermometer increase every ten minutes, was worth it when I got to meet Erika and Ted who are so, so, so, refreshing!! Their kindness, bubbly personalities, and easygoings nature made this engagement session a breeze and makes me love my job more and more, and more. We photographed this engagement session at the Parker Hotel which is a very artsy, swanky, and nice hotel, giving us plenty of spots for awesome photos. Two bottles of wine, a round of margaritas, a nice sit down dinner, and a gallon of sweat later we called it a day. I think I get the best couples ever and have one of the coolest jobs ever.

I was talking to my friend John earlier today, who’s also a wedding photographer and he emphasized and reminded me that it is such a great privilege for us (wedding photographers) to be part of a couple’s most important day of their lives. And it truly is amazing to be around people who are so happy and so excited to have their photo taken. And knowing that they’re depending on you and trusting you to do what we love to do is such an amazing feeling.

Thank you so much Erika and Ted!

Sue and Gan are like Multi-grain Cheerios. They’re sweet, wholesome, lovable, multi-faceted, fun, and amazing. Talking to them makes me smile and makes me so happy!! I can see why they’ve married each other–they’re so perfect for each other. Well, other than the fact one’s a die-hard Lakers fan and the other’s a hardcore Celtics fan, they’re perfect for each other.

I can’t express how sweet Sue is. She’s such a sweetheart, and I’m super thankful to have her as one of my brides this year! She’s so incredible and awesome! They had a really cute ceremony and reception! As part of their ceremony decoration they made 1000 paper cranes! For their reception they had little honey bottles as a favor, and best of all, they had lots of little cupcakes!

Thanks to Kaysha for second shooting with me!

I love that Stacey and her bridesmaids love to jam to old school R&B! It brings me back to elementary school and middle school, and it makes me smile. If names like Babyface, Kci & Jojo, Boyz II men, or Tony Rich Project make you smile, then you know what I’m talking about.  Stacey is probably one of the most relaxed brides I’ve ever seen, no anxiety, no anything. Just excitement icon smile Meet Stacey and Raymond (Wedding) It turns out one of her bridesmaids was an old childhood friend of mine, I haven’t seen her (basically) since elementary school, so I didn’t recognize her and felt kinda bad afterward, but when I realized who she was it was awesome! After seeing her I was really reminiscent and brought back to my childhood.

Old school R&B isn’t the only thing that I haven’t exposed to for a while, I haven’t photographed a backyard reception for quite some time. Stacey and Raymond had quite a cozy little reception topped with Chinese lanterns and catered by a taco truck! The tacos were delicious!

And finally, this is my first wedding where two of the groomsmen had mohawks. I used to have a mohawk by the way icon smile Meet Stacey and Raymond (Wedding)
