Balboa Bay Club Corona del Mar Wedding Photography

I had the honor of photographing Suzi and Chris on their gorgeous wedding at the Community Church of Cornona del Mar. The reception took place at the Balboa Bay Club, which has one of the most beautiful ballrooms I've ever seen. Click here to see a slideshow of some of my favorite images we captured.

My second shooter for this day was Sean, who did an awesome job as usual. One of my favorite shots by Sean:

On the day after their wedding, Suzi and Chris were at the airport waiting to leave for their honeymoon. They decided to leave me a voicemail describing how thankful they were and what a great job Sean and I did! How cool was that?!

Wedding Photography Sherman Library and Gardens Corona del Mar

A hidden gem, the Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona del Mar was the perfect venue for Melissa and Kevin's wedding. Drew came out to shoot with me again and we were able to do a fun romantic photo shoot of Melissa and Kevin within the beautiful gardens. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Ritz Carlton Wedding Laguna Niguel Wedding Photography

Shannon and Adam's wedding took place at the beautiful Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel. I've always wanted to shoot here, and I finally did!

I'll never forget this special day because I hurt my ankle the day before (I'll never go jogging again the morning before a triple wedding weekend!), and it just got progressively worse as the day went by. At the end of the evening I was in so much pain that I had a fever! Thanks to Britney (again) we still managed to pull off some nice shots and captured special moments. Here are a few of my favs:

Wedding Photography Mountain Meadows Golf Club San Dimas

Dianne and Bradley are a fun loving couple who's ceremony took place at New Life Assembly of God followed by their reception at Mountain Meadows Golf Club in San Dimas. It was awesome to have Britney Alves shoot with me because we always have a great time and she's an excellent shooter (a few of her shots below). We took Dianne and Bradley on a photo shoot on the golf course and I never had so much fun on a golf cart!

Dianne is tall and elegantly showcased her Maggie Sottero gown.

Wedding Photography Maravilla Gardens

Jamie and Shaun's wedding took place at the Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo. It's a gorgeous setting atop a hill surrounded by rolling hills, trees, farmland, and vineyards. The bonus was that it wasn't extremely hot as I anticipated. The weather turned out to be perfect and it was one of the nicest outdoor weddings I've photographed. Click here so see the slideshow!

Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Huntington Beach Wedding Photography

Barbara and Lars were blessed with a beautiful day for their wedding. The ceremoney was to be held at the Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa and the reception was at the Meadowlark Golf Course in Huntington Beach.

The first little surprise was that the officient ended up being none other than Pastor Chuck Smith! I've heard his Bible teachings quite a few times on the radio - KWAVE 95.9 FM, and he's instumental in the Calvary Chapel churches.

I was very fortunate to have Drew Bittel shoot for me on this day because she's a very talented photographer, but when we were shooting Barb and Lars' portraits at the golf club poor Drew was hit by a golf ball! Fortunately she wasn't hurt even though the ball hit her forearm form midair. And she was standing just a few feet away from Barbara! I just can't imagine if did hurt any one of us... needless to say, we got away with some nice shots of the happy couple!

This gorgeous cake was created by Goldilocks Bakery.
