Yay or Nay?

For a while now I have been debating whether or not I should try textures. Well, today as I was playing with some images I thought it would be a good idea to see how some of my images would look. While I like the artsy look it gives them, it's way different than what I am used to. I love for my images to be vibrant and sharp...these have more of a romantic, for lack of a better word, look to me.

What do you think? Should I keep exploring this post process? Yay or Nay? I definitely want to hear from my brides! So I am calling you ladies (the grooms, too!) out! Tell me what you think :)

Lynsey & Matthew ~ Engaged!

Pasadena, California

Art and I met with Lynsey and Matthew at the Pasadena City Hall for their engagement session. I love doing session late in the afternoon because the light is oh so yummy! Lynsey and Matthew know exactly what I mean because they were the ones who offered to have their e-session late in the afternoon to have fantastic and warm-a-licious light.

We had a great day exploring Pasadena. As an added bonus we got some awesome shots :P

Here are a few of or favorites:





My favorite!


It's also Art's favorite, but in black & white.




This is another favorite!










While I had Art go up a few flights of stairs (please do not pay any attention to the "do not enter" barrier tape)...


I enjoyed a nice nap on the job :P

Kim & Joey ~ Married!

You may remember Kim and Joey from their engagement session.

They are a super cool, super laid back, super funny couple :) Their wedding was really fun and full of laughs. All the images (with people in them :P) are full of many emotions.

Kim and Joey: Thank you so much for being so awesome. You guys seriously rock!



















During the toasts Kim and Joey, laughed, cried, laughed, smiled, looked at each other lovingly, laughed...you get the point!



Like I said, their images are full of emotions!




Once the sun went down...


it was time to party!!!


I almost slipped after I was done snapping this shot! Thankfully Art was there to catch me!

Jennifer & Scott ~ Married!

Holy Family Catholic Church - Glendale, California
La Canada Flintridge - La Canada, CA

As soon as Jen told me we should meet over breakfast I knew she was a girl after my own heart! I was right! She said her favorite meal was breakfast, which just so happens to be my favorite meal, too! Honestly, I am not a morning person, but for breakfast I will get up :P Actually, I can have breakfast any time of the day!

So Art, Jen, Scott and I went to breakfast and talked about photography, how they met, how Art and I met, details about their upcoming wedding and other random stuff that would pop into our heads. I left the meeting, if we can even call it a meeting since it felt more like breakfast with friends, knowing that I was going to enjoy every minute of photographing their wedding. I also knew their wedding would be beautiful, fun and pink (my favorite color)! What a great combination, don't you think?!

I was right! Their wedding was beautiful, fun and pink! Most importantly, they had a lot of love surrounding them. One of the best moments was when Jen's mom gave a toast to the newlyweds. It was very touching. I don't think I've ever heard a speech radiate so much love. Every single word came from her heart and you could just feel it. She really brought tears to my eyes. She truly is a special woman :) After the toast it was time to party, though, and they sure did PARTY!

Jen & Scott: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate your kindness, openness, and all the time you guys allowed for portraits!!! lol I know I say this a lot, but I really feel blessed to be able to do what I love and call it a job. Having couples like you make me fall more in love with my job and makes it truly rewarding ~ Nat

Get comfortable, there are a ton of images for your viewing pleasure :)























I love this one! A bride can keep planning until the very last minute, right?!














Did you notice how cute Jen's shoes are?


Here's a close up. Even the bottom of the shoes were cute!


Moving on to the reception:







How I love it when someone does not play nice! :P


First dance




Art, working hard!


Not only am I a photographer, but I can bustle the bride's dress as well! I've also been known to give a few tips on how you should put on a veil ;)
