Calamigos Ranch Malibu Wedding

Melody & Jason ~ Married!

Even though it's already 11:19 p.m., I decided to type this blog right after getting home from the wedding because I wanted to make sure I put down exactly how I felt about Melody and Jason after their wedding today. When I first met them I thought they were nice people. As much as you want to get to know the couple whose wedding you might possibly photograph, you can only get a general idea of who they are at a short meeting. We had the pleasure of getting to know Melody and Jason a little better during their engagement session and we thought we had a really good sense of who they are as a couple. We were right thinking they are a great couple, but I would have to say that we still had no idea exactly what a beautiful couple they are.

Melody is somewhat reserved but the way she smiles when Jason is near her lets everyone know how much she loves that man. Jason is a funny guy and a smooth talker when it comes to Melody. He knows exactly when and how to give Melody a compliment that will make anyone say "aahhhhhh!" It's more than sweet talking, though. You can see the honesty, love, and meaning behind it. Witnessing their love today made me remember and confirm why I love documenting weddings with our cameras so much. Being able to not only witness two people completely in love get married but also capture those memories for them is such a special feeling. You would think that after doing this for over 5 years I would be desensitized but NO! I still LOVE weddings! I am totally in love with love and I love being able to see others happy and in love. Melody and Jason are truly a perfect match and they balance each other out perfectly. The way she laughs at all his jokes and the way he cares for her and looks at her adoringly is a great example of what love is. They are truly an inspiration and I feel honored to have been part of their wedding.

I think being a 2 dress bride is cool but being a 2 pair of shoes bride is what it's about to me!

I fell in love with their venue and details. They were so creative using books as part of their centerpieces.

I love seeing your work AND I love seeing you guys work. I love the behind the scenes shots because they remind me of how just how hard you both work and how hands on you both are with what you do. You HAVE to frame that picture of you. You look stunning! And that was just "practice?" WOW! Imagine if you were really trying? :)

Melody's wedding was gorgeous! I love the intimate/forest feel and all those touches like the books and the flowers in jars. Everything was so pretty! And their "first look" was one of my favorites that you've ever shot! I'm so glad you haven't been de-sensitized! Your love for what you do truly shines through and I love it!!! :D
