EMILIE & LOWELL | Crossings Wedding

From the moment we met Emilie & Lowell, it felt like we had known them for ages. During the engagement session, it was all laughter and it just felt right! The more and more we got to know about them, the more we understood why! They are foodies…so are we! Lowell loves playing basketball, I (Stan) also love playing basketball. They love hiking…we love hiking! Lowell has a passion for photography…obviously we do too! Finally, Emilie loves to bake…we love to eat baked goods! ;P

On their wedding day, we had the incredible honor of witnessing their love one more time.  And this time, we could totally feel it if that makes sense.  They were all smiles, so relaxed and so in the moment as if they were the only two people on earth.  And Lowell who normally isn’t the mushy type was sneaking kisses with Emilie all day! We have proof! ;)  It was a perfect day from beginning to end.  From the perfect weather, to the touching father/daughter dance and even a singing performance by Emilie’s sister.  She sang a song from Wicked, Lowell & Emilie’s favorite musical, and one of our all time favorites as well!

Lowell and Emilie- We have a ton of images coming but we hope you enjoy this little snapshot! See you guys real soon!!  Thank you again for choosing us to be a part of your day!  We are blessed to know you guys!

We can’t leave out the awesome vendors we worked with that day!

BEN & VANNESSA | Wedding

We are so excited to share these next images with you all! Not just cause we’re in love with Ben & Vannessa’s images but because we’re kinda in love with Ben & Vannessa! :) haha okay, that sounded borderline stalker. But seriously, we’ve never come across a couple who would constantly ask how we are doing while shooting their wedding and always offering us food & drinks. They were the ones wearing multiple layers and/or wearing 4 inch Louboutins and here they are asking us if we’re comfortable! :) But that’s just Ben & Vannessa…two of the most caring, sweetest, most genuine people we’ve ever come across. Add to that list, good looks, great sense of humor, intelligence, mad dancing skills and a love for all things disney! now do you see why we’re smitten with these two?

These two were married up in Rancho Cucamongo and while scoping out the area for “picturesque” spots one thing kept popping up — power lines! So rather than avoid it we decided to use them in some of their photographs. And boy are we glad we did! Thanks to Ben & Vannessa and all the bridal party members who were sweet enough to make these photos happen!

Lastly, we can’t forget to mention all the amazing vendors we worked with that day. Charmae & Cyril of Bellz & Whistlez always seem to go above and beyond for their couples and this day was no exception. They truly are the epitome of professionalism. Also, we had the pleasure of working with the team of Loyd Calomay Films (Loyd, Hazel and Louie) who are exceptional videographers! They are the nicest, least intrusive, funniest and downright most creative people we’ve worked with. Their same day edit was pretty darn spectacular and had a seamless fusion of Ben & Vannessa’s actual first dance with their “practice” version. The moments they choose, the timing of the music to their footage, the sound clips they incorporate….every video is unique & unexpected. They are true artists! Seriously, check out their work and see for yourself! And we can’t leave out FLoralworks who did the beautiful flowers, Katie B who did the girl’s amazing hair & make-up & Eddie Cruz, their dj, who kept the dance floor packed ALL NIGHT LONG. Even their limo driver whose name we don’t know but we will get soon was so incredibly sweet. I mean, really? Everyone so nice?!?!? That’s just the kind of people that Ben & Vannessa deserve to be around!

TO SEE MORE IMAGES, CHECK OUT THEIR SLIDESHOW AT THE END OF THIS POST! :)

JENNIFER & PETER | Hyatt Huntington Beach Wedding

As we drove up to Orange County to photograph Jennifer & Peter’s wedding we thought, “After 8 years of shooting weddings, this could be our very first wedding in the rain.” But as we left their tea ceremony and headed toward the Hyatt, the rain ceased and only made a small cameo in the form of a drizzle during the ceremony. They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck and even though Jennifer & Peter don’t need it, a little lucky charm on your day is always sweet.

There were so many fun & endearing moments during their wedding but I have to mention the slideshow that Jennifer’s brother created for them. It was something out of an Apple commercial…or google…or both! Either way, it was very cool & super funny! And Stan would kill me if I didn’t mention a certain guest of theirs, Chuck Lidell, an MMA legend who was kind enough to take some snapshots with Stan and many of the guests.

All in all it was an amazing day for an equally amazing couple. Jennifer & Peter — we can’t wait to show you the rest of your photos! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day!
