A Magical Carmel Engagement Session

Carmel Engagement_G&T_Vivian Lin Photo-85Doing a photo session in Carmel has always been on my photo bucket list.  From the picturesque town of Carmel By-the-Sea, to the natural diversity of Point Lobos, to the expansive sand dunes hugging the Pacific, it’s pretty darn close to paradise.  Gillian and Tim hail from the East Coast and have been blessed to come out annually, as Tim performs in the Bach Festival.  Gillian says there’s nowhere else like Carmel (so far, I completely agree), and that it would mean so much to have their engagement session there.  Check out the gorgeousness!

Loews Santa Monica Wedding_Vivian Lin Photography-643I get super excited when a couple tells me they love black and white documentary style photography.  I get super excited when the venue they’ve chosen is glowing with gorgeous light, long lines, and inspiring architectural features.  I get super excited when I see the whole bridal party is rocking sophisticated chic with a touch of retro details.  Liz and Tim’s wedding was a triple whammy.

Four Seasons Westlake Village Wedding

Four Seasons Wedding_Vivian Lin Photo_001Will & Jheralyn are some of the sweetest, most selfless people who’ve crossed my path.  Both hating to be the center of attention, they were more concerned about everyone having a good time on their wedding day than they were about anything else.  Jheralyn’s amazing sisters really stepped it up to make her day memorable, from helping with the planning, designing the details, and keeping everything on track.  One of her sisters, Jenn, even reached out to me and we worked on transforming one of their photos from their engagement session into a mega vertical panorama that could accommodate 150 guests signing in.  One of my favorite moments of their day was when her sisters organized Will and Jheralyn’s exit from the church.  They walked out  the entrance to a sea of loved ones waving pink and white wands.
