Hawaii here we come!

My hubby and I are off to Hawaii! It's our last trip before this beautiful baby girl rocks our world:) I will not be answering any emails or phone calls while we are gone, so I will get back to you next week! Enjoy all the blog posts I got done before I leave...

Mike and Liz: Married!

Mike and Liz got married in Huntington Beach and I was so happy to be a part of their day! The weather was amazing, their friends and family were amazing... it all made for a fun and special day! It was one of those days where I didn't even want to leave the reception:) A special thanks to Matt for being my second shooter that day!

My first favorite part of the day... seeing the look on the grooms' face as he sees his bride walk down the isle:)

This images perfectly defines Mike and Liz. They laugh with/at each other all the time! 
They have so much fun together.

Ahhhh, the last bit of light outside... beautiful! 

The first dance is something I look forward to every single wedding. For some reason growing up, I always thought of my wedding day and other than the ceremony which of course is the most important part, I always dreamed of my first dance with my groom. I love getting to experience it with my brides and grooms. It is just so full of emotion and pure happiness...

Mike and Liz are so fun... they even had a ping pong table outside for their guests! We had to do the ring shot on it:)

Matt and Tawney: Married!

Matt and Tawney got married up in LA a month or so ago. I feel so blessed to have been referred to them because they were so wonderful to work with! They are so obviously in love and perfect for each other, and no matter what happened on their wedding day, it was perfect because of that:) Tawney had many stressful things happen to her the week of her wedding, and was so great at keeping it all in perspective and realizing she is marrying the man of her dreams so who cares! Matt and Tawney decided to do a "first look", which means they wanted to see each other before their ceremony, so the first set of portraits of them is from that, then the later ones are from after the ceremony.

Tawney said the minute she put this dress on, she KNEW it was made for her... I agree! She looked absolutely fabulous!

I love capturing the first look:)
