This is news that I’ve been holding back for a while, because I didn’t want to announce it until it was published. But recently I entered into the Look of Love Photography Contest associated with American Photo Magazine and also Destination Weddings and Honeymoon Magazine. and I won! I won!

I am very esctatic to tell the world that I won for the “Getting Ready” Category and received runner-up for “Couples Portrait” Category. Considering it was my first photography contest that I won, I was very surprised to win. When I got the call one morning I was speechless, it was one of those moments in life where you’re really happy and your brain has so many thoughts going on but nothing comes out of your mouth.

This is the winning photo for “Getting Ready”

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.

This of course, is the lovely bride Jenefel

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.

Matt and Brittany are one of the easiest couples to work with. Plus they’re a lot of fun! Who ever said that people who work in insurance aren’t fun people? And they’re very very beautiful people!

I had so many great images from this wedding, that just in this post alone are only the photos of Brittany getting ready. There are so many more, that I don’t know what to do with myself.  I’d also like to thank my second shooter Kristen Hanson for shooting this with me.
