So the weather did not really want to cooperate with us, but we pushed ahead, with fifty dollars worth of new umbrellas (that’s what happens when you leave every umbrella you own 100 miles away at home).

A Sign of the Times  APR 18 11

We were only there for a few hours, but there sure was a lot happenin'! Heather and Eric's rambunctious little ones were giving us plenty of things to capture. Heather had wanted a lot of photos of them and the kids, and I think we delivered! They were hopping all over the place while Heather was getting ready in one room, and Eric in another. Heather was escorted down the aisle by Eric's two sons, and it was really emotional.

Exciting and dramatic images don’t often happen by accident...When the timing was right I took my couple outside and was all set to get the images I had planned in my mind’s eye. We were looking for high contrast, silhouettes, sun flares and strong shapes to make these images pop.

A Natural Pair  MAR 14 11

from Jennifer Bowen Photography : site | blog

 

They met in college. Zach first saw Tyeler in a Spanish class and thought he ought to sit a little closer to her, to get to know her. He, the tall, outgoing football player. Her, the gorgeous and kind girl-next-door. They developed a friendship and gradually fell in love, but what still exists seemingly first and foremost between these two, is that the enduring, very natural friendship. The kind of friendship that will get you through so much in life. Love, passion and all the other complexities that make couples unique to one-another certainly there as well, but a natural playfulness and happiness seems to always exude from Tyeler and Zach.

Something to Hide?  FEB 28 11

from Jared Wilson Photography : site | blog

Who are Jennifer and John? Why are their engagement photos so mysterious? What have they to hide? And why the yellow balloon? Is there a secret? Is there something we shouldn't know? Are their foreheads hideous?

NO! Of course not... This beautiful couple ain't hiding a thing! Especially their teeth... Jennifer and John were all smiles!

Down to Earth  NOV 01 10

from Josh Goodman Photography : site | blog

Niko and Joshua are two of the nicest, most down to earth people you’re likely to meet, so we felt really fortunate that they chose us to be their photographers! They’re the type of people that you feel like you’ve known for years, even if you’ve just met them. We started their e-session off at the amazing Walt Disney Concert Hall to get some architectural/urban images, and we ended up at the LA Arboretum to balance it out with some greenery.

from Becker Photographer : site | blog

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to be a part of an amazing celebration of love. I can't get over what an amazing day it was. It was as close to a perfect wedding as I've ever shot. The venues were incredible, the weather was gorgeous, the couple was quite photogenic not to mention how wonderful they are together, the families were so warm and hospitable, the bridesmaids were smokin' hot, the groomsmen were hilarious, the details were amazing, the wedding planners were on it, and the band was awesome.

Field of Flowers  AUG 30 10

from Jennifer Bowen Photography : site | blog

I met up with Elizabeth and Matthew a week ago at Mount Lemmon in Tucson for their engagement session. Elizabeth had several ideas for her shoot, including going to the top of the ski resort there, which I loved because above all I want to capture the essence of the couple more than anything. And finding a field of sunflowers at the top is pretty awesome too.

Visual Highlights  AUG 23 10

from Ulysses Photography : site | blog

We got progressively more excited about Melissa & Alex’s approaching wedding day. We knew how much thoughtfulness they each put into its preparation. That’s always a great sign there will be lots for us to photograph. High heels, a 1957 Cadillac, beautiful venue decor, and an outstanding view of the Mid-Hudson Valley were some of the visual highlights of the day. But even more inviting than the details and decor was the spirit of remarkably close friendship that was so evident throughout the day. Following a heartwarming ceremony just before sunset, we were able to spend some invaluable time alone with Melissa & Alex for some fashionably romantic portraits. They knocked it out of the park, just like we knew they would!

I had a lovely recent trip out to Santa Barbara to spend some time with Danielle and Erik [and crazytown maid of honor Shyla] and, dare I say it, fun was had by all.  I did enjoy hanging out on a bluff feeling the warm air from the mountains and the cool air from the ocean doing a little dance around my face while I was exploring with my camera.

They met for coffee on a Thursday morning and Josh was instantly attracted to Vanessa's long curly hair and big blue eyes. They both felt like they were chatting up an old friend and what was only supposed to be coffee, turned into an entire day spent together. Vanessa got home, cancelled her date for the next day with another guy, and they've never looked back since.

Overcoming Challenges Together  MAR 02 10

from Melissa Jill Photography : site | blog

Jay and Lisa met in 2003 when mutual friends started dating. Together, these two are travelers -- adventurers with a love for finding new places, discovering new things, eating new food. It was on one of these adventures that Jay proposed and they knew they had a lifetime of adventures to come.

However, there was one adventure they weren't expecting. Lisa was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. It was a devastating verdict for both Lisa and for Jay, the man who loved her. The weeks and months that followed were some of the most challenging the two have known. However with Jay's generous spirit and Lisa's unwavering strength, they overcame one of life's biggest obstacles and Lisa is now cancer free!

Jay and Lisa made their committment to one another official on Saturday at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale. This retro-style hotel was such a fun place for a wedding. There were so many bright popping colors and fun pieces of art to work with.

Every now and then I like to spotlight a vendor that I have met that has great style and a desire to make an impact through their business. These are the kind of people I get excited to share with my clients and anyone out there looking for great people to work with on their wedding day.

I recently had the pleasure to meet Amanda and Tony of Spilled Ink Press and photograph several of their amazing designs. They are trained designers and architects which is evident in their great style. They love to get to know their clients so that each invitation is a original piece that reflects their clients style and personality. Much the same as how I like my photos to be so of course we hit it off great! Check them out and there are many more samples on the Vrai fan page.

Blissfully in Love  JAN 04 10

from Becker Photographer : site | blog

Here are a few of my favorite "real moments' of the past year. Of course I love shooting my relaxed portraits, and I take pride in capturing some amazing details, but the real moments are what really motivate me. It's the unposed, unplanned moments that just happen. They are moment that would have happened whether I was there or not, and the subjects are usually not even aware of my presence (due to my awesome ninja skills). Whether it's a little look the couple gives each other, or the emotion that that is written all over someone's face, or the split second moment that only happens once in a lifetime... I love capturing these genuine moments. These are the kinds of photos that people don't forget.

I truly enjoyed being a part of Elizabeth and Bryant’s fantastic, elegant, sophisticated, beautiful wedding. What an amazing, gorgeous, sweet couple who are truly so in love and happy.

Their first meeting was sweet and so cute. They got to enjoy each other for a few minutes before heading to the ceremony location. So many great moments I got during their first meeting – sweet looks, smiles, hugs, bowtie fixing. I really love those moments when my couples meet before the ceremony. So much more emotion for the two of them and so much more of “them” shows in those few minutes. Love it, love it.

An Indian Tradition  OCT 22 09

from Seshu Photography : site | blog

The wedding was no ordinary Hindu ceremony. Veena's family trace their roots back to Shenkottai, a town bordering Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, in India. As Sankethi, they are Brahmins (the priestly caste) and so one of the most interesting parts of the wedding was the chanting of the "Purusha-suktha" by family and friends.  Find out more about the Sankethi community at the North American Sankethi Association.

Lucky Bamboo  OCT 20 09

from Keith Simonian Photography : site | blog

One of the challenges of wedding photography is getting a unique and different shot of the bride and groom’s wedding rings. At some weddings a theme just pops out, at others a little more hunting for a theme is involved. At Lillie and Jeff’s wedding the idea was right there on the table at the reception. Each table was decorated with a Lucky Bamboo Plant which is thought to bring good fortune in Chinese culture.

The Color Purple  SEP 18 09

Now stronger than ever, the color purple and its varying hues are flooding the fashion world as one might notice from looking at magazine covers and clothing racks.

Today’s inspiration board comes from Julie and Sang’s magical wedding.

At Linn and Annie's reception in Honolulu, Linn unleashed surprise after surprise, including giving a welcome speech in his family's native Korean, re-enacting a scene from the movie "Love Actually" for Annie (customized for her, of course), and to top it all off, singing to her in front of everyone. He had secretly been taking voice lessons to prepare.

Anywhoo she was in a speedo, I was in a speedo... it was pure magic (lol) or something like that. She had just started swimming on the same swim team I was on, and I had been away for a while, and when I came back, there she was... and I was like, cool! Here's a girl who is crazy, has fun, and doesn't care what other people think. There wasn't love at first sight or anything like that, I just remember thinking “what a cool person!” The love came a couple of years later."

So, fast forward nearly 10 years and I get to witness Eric marrying Anne, overlooking the Rocky Mountains.  And as luck would have it, the very next weekend, I had a wedding in Hawaii on the same island Anne and Eric were spending their honeymoon.

High School Memories  JUL 12 09

from The Wiebners : site | blog

A few weeks back we photographed Troy and Melanie. Melanie is also 7 months pregnant with their first child (yay!) so they wanted to document this special time for them. And of course, what better place to go than the high school where it all started? They both went to McCaskey High here in Lancaster, so we took advantage of the warm summer weather and no students on the grounds, to play around at the school. We found some cool places to play and ended up in the football stadium. An empty stadium is a lot of fun to play with :)

Reflections on the First Kiss  JUL 03 09

from Ryan Brenizer Photography : site | blog
It's tough to enter artistic choice into a situation where you have to play it utterly safe. For example...The Kiss. You can't come up to a couple and say, "I tried something crazy, and it didn't work, so …no Kiss shot."

 

But trying crazy things is the entire basis of creativity. So here I am poking at the edges of a very tough envelope.

We had the pleasure of shooting Nikita and Nick’s E-Session last Saturday at the Los Angeles Arboretum.  It was really fun walking around the grounds with them to find cool places to shoot.  We did a lot of walking, and Nikita admitted her feet were hurting a bit after trekking around in heels for hours :-) But the images we got were totally worth it!

Aaron and Brianna will be celebrating their wedding day at Bridal Veil Lakes in June. We threw caution to the wind last Sunday and photographed an engagement session that ran through two hail storms, rain, and occasional sun breaks. What can you say - we live in Oregon and take it all in stride.

It was a beautiful Southern California morning when Nahoko and Yoshiya got married. It was the perfect spring wedding. The weather was amazing and the view of the ocean was stunning. They had white tulips and pink roses…. such a great start to spring!  Is there anything better than this view?

Anything Goes  APR 02 09

from Ohana Photographers : site | blog

we got to go exploring around point loma shooting san diego wedding photographer, the smoking hot blair and her husband sean (his real name is spiderman). the best thing about shooting photographers (and superheros) is that they will do anything we say. including, but not limited to, pelting each other with beachballs, dumpster diving, shooting in strip clubs, and jumping in seedy 1960's hotel pools.

We headed down to Philly for Christina and Brad's wedding.  The entire wedding party was so great to work with.  We had some fun with the whole gang prior to the ceremony (Christina and Brad saw each other beforehand) and then a Jewish ceremony was followed by dinner and dancing. Here is a very serious, formal portrait in the library. :)

Chuck Taylor Duo  MAR 31 09

from MERGE weddings : site | blog

How many people do you know opt to wear Chuck Taylors on their wedding day? One of the most iconic shoes in the country, Chucks have a special place in my pseudo-hipster heart! I love these two photos together: both Robin and Erik are tying up their right Chuck on the morning of their wedding. It’s a sign of the compatibility and uniqueness that ties them together.
