Downtown Disney Wedding

Downtown Disney ~ Anaheim, California

Today I'm sharing a very small weekday wedding I photographed a few weeks ago at Downtown Disney. I was only there for 3 hours but loved every minute of it! They got ready at the Disney Hotel and had their ceremony at their gazebo. They had only their immediate family and closest friends there to celebrate with them. Probably no more than 20 people. I love, love, love small weddings. They are so intimate and full of love, every single time! Here are just a few of my favorite shots of the day.

Not because this was a Disney wedding, but doesn't Patty look like Princess Jasmine?!

Los Angeles Athletic Club Engagement Session

Martha & Dilberg ~ Engaged!
The Athletic Club ~ Downtown Los Angeles

Martha and Dilberg decided to do their engagement session in downtown LA. We were so over the moon with the two locations they chose because they both have beautiful rooftops with an amazing view of our downtown LA skyline. Their wedding, which will take place later on this year, will also have a beautiful view of the skyline so it was very fitting that we incorporated it in their engagement session.

We started off at a rooftop that's not too far from the Athletic Club and then we walked over to LAAC. We even stopped at the jewelry district to get a few shots. I love downtown and it's what we call home so I loved getting to photograph in so many amazing spots that we pass up on a daily basis with Art. We always feel like downtown has many hidden gems. So happy to share some of my favorite shots!

You see that building that says 608? I worked there when I was about 15-16 years old. My dad's friend owned a jewelry repair shop there and my dad thought it would be a good idea that I start learning how to be responsible and what working was all about. I remember I loved working there and getting to spend my money on whatever I wanted. Oh what fun it was to be a teenager! Anyway, moving on! :P

I love that this is so them, so candid. Just getting a drink at the bar and chatting <3

And up to the rooftop!

And we're bringing back the behind the scene shots :) (In case you didn't know, I have no problem taking a photo with your iphone but I don't promise they'll be as good as the ones with our camera :P)

First United Methodist Church of Pasadena Wedding

Stephanie & Chris ~ Married! Wedding Ceremony: First United Methodist Church of Pasadena
Reception: Rococo Room ~ Cafe Santorini

Stephanie and Chris were our last wedding of 2013. It was very special to me because it was my last wedding before our baby girl made her arrival. I was huge (almost 9 months pregnant) but I still had lots of energy to do what I love! Stephanie and Chris hired us back in 2012 so I had a lot of time to look forward to their wedding. We got to know Chris and Stephanie during their engagement session (you can click HERE to check that out). They are a beautiful couple, inside and out. On the day of their wedding it was fun to get to see them again on the most special day of their life. Stephanie is a very kind and sweet girl and the day of her wedding was no different. She is one of those people that naturally has a warm personality. This showed when we got to the room she was getting ready in. Everyone was enjoying themselves and just having fun because Stephanie set the mood for that. When we got there she greeted us with a bag full of snacks for the day, which was much appreciated by a pregnant girl :P I'm telling you, she is such a sweet person and very thoughtful. Chris is also a great person. I loved seeing how eager he was to see his soon to be wife. The love these two have for each other is undeniable and so sweet!

Now I can't wait to show you a few shots from their wedding.

Let's start with some Jimmy Choo shoes!

Time for the first look! It was so cute to see how impatient Chris was to see his beautiful bride. He kept asking if it was time to turn around as she was walking towards him :)
