I’ve always wanted to shoot a bride and groom with a lightsaber. Now that that’s off my photography bucket list, I present to you the beautiful images of Mindy and Ricky’s wedding!

Now that I’ve been to so many weddings there’s not a WHOLE lot of things that impress me that are wedding-related. But I was in awe when I found out that Ricky and his friends built their own photo booth for their own wedding! Wow, but I guess I’m not to surprised knowing that a lot of his groomsmen are smart engineers. Okay I’m going to be honest. I don’t even know if I could build a photo booth and I’m a photographer. Maybe one day I’ll do it for my on wedding (which probably won’t be for a while.)

This beautiful wedding took place in this little hidden gem in Pasadena called the Athenaeum. I don’t even know how to pronounce that word, but it doesn’t matter this place was gorgeous like many of the Pasadena venues. It’s inside the campus of Cal Tech so a lot of the architecture is shared with the campus itself (I think.)

Congratulations to the both of you!

Hello!

This is the lovely Sherri and Santos. That’s what most people call them. But in my mind I call them the ‘musically-gifted world trekkers.” Have you noticed most people who are musicians are cool people? Have you also noticed that most people who are travelers are cool too? If you haven’t you must be neither of those, and you must suck.

Sherri has lived all over the U.S. because her family’s in the military. She’s got this cool accent, I’m not really sure where it’s from. But it’s cool nonetheless. Santos has spent some time in west Africa which is one place I’m dying to go to. I always love talking to people from other places or who have been to a lot other places because their stories both inspire and excite me.

So this session took place in Old Town Pasadena–one of my favorite places to take photos because it has a lot of character and different backgrounds, much like this lovely couple!

You are viewing “Teasers Part I”

Briana and Devon had their wedding at the beautiful, quaint, and cozy Shakespeare club located in Pasadena, and I was going to try to speak “Shakespearean” to describe the photos that I put up, but I can’t because, to be frank, I suck with that kind of stuff. English was never my forte.  That’s why I’m a photographer icon smile Meet Briana and Devon (Wedding) So instead I’m going to throw in a few Shakespeare quotes here and there.

“Love from one side hurts, but love from two sides heals.”
William Shakespeare

I like the shooting the preparation stuff because it’s a lot more relaxing, and I get to talk a little bit with the bride before craziness starts at the wedding.

I almost never use this type of ‘selective coloring’ style of post-processing because I think it’s overused and cliche, but for this photo I really think selective coloring suited it the best. What do you think?

Bubbles!

So you’ve heard of people crashing weddings, but have you ever heard of a bride and her bridesmaids crashing another party? Ha! This awesome bride (Briana) went straight across the street where there was a kids birthday party and had a mini pre-party with the folks and kids there. Soooo cool icon smile Meet Briana and Devon (Wedding)

Priceless. For everything else there’s Mastercard.

On the left you have a Rabbi, on the right you have a Catholic Priest. I think this photo would be great for a fill the in the caption contest.

Hm I’d like you to meet Father O’Brian. He’s one of those people that have an amazing ability to draw you in with his gentle, intriguing, magnetic, and calm personality.  I talked to him for less than a minute and I could sense what a great person he was.  He asked me to photograph him and his dog in the near future which I really look forward to.

My bounty is as deep as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

– William Shakespeare

Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts.
