I’m back today from a 1 week trip from NYC, and it was a very wonderful, interesting, exciting trip! I’ll post some of those photos soon.  But as much as I love traveling, it’s becoming harder and harder to enjoy traveling when TSA makes it harder and harder to get through security. I wouldn’t be surprised if eventually one day everyone has to go to the airport in their underwear, and in their underwear only. That might be easier than waiting in line to strip down and put it into plastic tubs just to put it back on again after you wait till everyone in front of you does the same. Bleh. Today, TSA pulled me aside to do a ‘random’ search, which only made my traveling experience less fun.

Anyway, this is Patty and Randy, they’re a happily (and sorta newly) married couple.  In case you can’t tell, Randy’s in the Air Force which is why I shot him with jets, airplanes, and hangars in the background. I loved this shoot! This is some of my best work yet, I had a great looking couple in front of aircraft. Uber awesome.

This is Bridget and James! And this is also my last wedding for 2009. It was a small wedding, and a nice change from the larger weddings that I’m used to. Less people means less stress icon smile Meet Bridget and James (Wedding)

So for almost every wedding I can always pick out something that I haven’t seen at other weddings. For example for one wedding there was a moon bounce and s’mores at the reception. This other wedding was held inside a museum, and as an art-lover I thought that was fantastic.  There was another wedding where the bride was covered from head to toe and wasn’t able to see anything until the end of the ceremony since it was an orthodox Jewish wedding.

For this wedding, there was a big ‘first’ for me.   This was the first wedding that the bride made her own dress. Pretty impressive I’d say. I’m able to hem my own pants, and I thought I was good. But I got nothing on making dresses, let alone a wedding dress.

So long distance + long term relationships do work! Long distance as California to Alabama.  Long term as in 6 years? I believe. Love conquers all right?

Meet Jenefel and Quentin. Jenefel’s (pronounced jen-uh-full) quite the comedian. Quentin’s (pronounced like Tarantino’s first name) one of those really nice people with out a single bone of malice in their whole entire body. It was a beautiful church wedding, and quite frankly an action packed day.

True story. I was shooting the shoes in the house, and the mother of the bride who’s quite a joker herself, told me I should shoot the shoes on the stove and in the microwave.  I replied by laughing nervously, because I wasn’t sure if she was serious or not. But then I thought to myself, maybe that might be a cool shot. I didn’t end up doing it because I thought the shot below was really really good already.

Ceremony: White Memorial Adventist Church

Reception: American Legion Post in West Covina

Um…there was this really awkward looking mannequin outside the house. So I decided to make it look even more awkward by putting shoes on it. But it’s so cool.

Kids as adorable as these make any wedding a lot more fun.

Let me tell you the story of the shot below. The make-up-brushes and compacts had a century long feud, and one day they decided to have one final battle on the land of the towel.  Bobby pins and nail polish were hurled at their opposing enemies for hours and hours.  This is what remains of the battlefield.

Putting the dress on can be a very, very exciting event.

Now on to the gentlemen. This isn’t the groom, but I just like this photo because it’s a very interesting photo to say the least. Haha. It’s probably not what you probably think it is.

This is the groom, Quentin.  The jolly chap.
