Wow… I am so flattered

As seen SMP Wow... I am so flattered

Twice this week I was featured on wedding blogs. I had no idea. Thanks to my bride Chandra for keeping me filled in on this great honor.

My Marvimon House wedding is on Style Me Pretty (more of this wedding is also on this blog)

And the same beautiful bride Chandra’s engagement photos from Santa Monica’s Viceroy and Pier are featured on the Love and Lavender blog

Feeling good…thanks everyone for taking the time to submit these

Dana and Cory, Sept 5-6, Viceroy Hotel, Santa Monica

 Dana and Cory, Sept 5 6, Viceroy Hotel, Santa MonicaI am not going to lie. I was a tad nervous coming into this wedding. Dana and I have mutual friends so when she called me last year she she already had her mind made, I was going to shoot her wedding. Of course she had seen my work and new it was a good fit but there is an extra level of pressure when you are shooting a friend or acquaintance. On top of that she was having an intimate (20 people) family only wedding with a brunch to follow the next day with friends. This sounds easy but often smaller weddings are more difficult to shoot because there isn’t “much” going on. Luckily I had been to and shot at the Viceroy before so I knew I had lots of fun options. After the first 10 minutes with Dana and I saw how truly stunning she looked I started to relax, then when I took the dress photo below and now consider it one of my favorite dress photos, I really started to calm down. It was a whirlwind 4 hours that first day, don’t look for a first dance or garter toss but check out these kick ass (Dana’s words) portraits and more.

Cheers to Dana and Cory. Huge Congratulations.
