Mr. & Mrs. P : Wedding // Southern California Wedding Photographer

I absolutely love LOVE love weddings. Capturing genuine interactions, raw emotions, and overflowing joy is the goal for me when shooting a wedding. Brides and grooms plan for months (sometimes a year+) to make every last detail of their wedding perfect; from the larger details like wardrobe, flowers, catering, etc. to the tiniest of details like the favors, water bottle labels, napkin embossing. The fact is, no matter how much planning goes into the details, no matter how hard you try, there is just no way for a couple to be able to soak in all of their hard work when the day finally arrives. 

That's where we come in. My husband and I, as a team, soak it all in. We know the stresses of a wedding day can be overwhelming so why should the couple need to be bothered with anything other than enjoying their day? I don't think we ever stop moving or planning or thinking or coordinating during a wedding. We want to capture all of those details, all of the laughter and tears and anticipation these days bring. We always hear the same thing when we deliver a wedding gallery from the newlyweds.. "There was just so much we missed, and you didn't!" I honestly can't think of a better compliment to be honest. 

This couple was so fun, so in love, and even though we met the day before (they traveled in for the wedding) it was absolutely evident that their foundation was solid. They started their marriage in a way that took me and my husband years to figure out. When you have a biblical view of marriage you have an opportunity to live in an incredible sweet spot, not without it's sour notes, but it is so blessed. That's my hope for this couple as they grow together. 

Here are some of my favorite's from this gorgeous Southern California wedding.
