I’ve gotta tell you, I’m a total softie. It’s not unusual for me to cry at weddings where I am the photographer. Sometimes it happens during the vows. Sometimes during a really moving speech, or the father-daughter dance. But the moment that pulled at my heart strings at this wedding was when Michael saw Sara for the first time that day. Love, joy, and gratefulness was written all over his face. That really set the tone for the day, where I witnessed how considerate and supportive these two are for each other, and how that love is an extension from their families. So check out all the great moments, and the REALLY cute kids!
Congratulations, Michael and Sara!!!
Special thanks to Kara and Winnie, and the entire team of talented vendors who worked on this wedding.

For how simple Shanda and Alan kept their big day, I was wowed by how gorgeous it all came together. The day started with a casual ceremony at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. Afterwards, I was like a kid in a candy store working with this stunning couple. Between this fabulous looking couple, two dresses (and two ties!), two fabulous pairs of heels, two locations, and loads of chemistry, we got so many great shots it was hard to narrow down the selection to what you see here. The evening ended with a meaningful dinner of close family and friends at a champagne and dessert bar in Old Town Pasadena. Check out the photos and you’ll see that Shanda and Alan rocked their day with style and grace.
Congratulations to Alan and Shanda! Thank you for being such an inspiration to work with.
