Linda and Joe found me through the Fearless Photographers website and I was so glad they did. It was an absolute joy to be a small part of their wonderful San Gabriel Wedding last month.
Linda stayed at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena the night before the wedding and got ready in her gorgeous room prior to heading over to the Grapevine Arbor Park in San Gabriel for the outdoor ceremony. As far as rooms to photograph a bride getting ready in go, this was pretty special. For the first time since March I was shooting a wedding with some clouds in the sky so the light was great and the room setup allowed me to get creative and produce some wonderful images of Linda and her bridesmaids. We were treated to some beautiful late afternoon sun for the ceremony and portraits. We didn’t do an engagement shoot but seriously, no other couple took to posing like these two did, with no prior practice or global modelling experience…..apparently
Linda and Joe are such a cool couple and were so kind to me on the day. You’ll see by the images that this was jam packed with plenty of emotion and some incredible energy during the reception. Where possible I always stay right to the end of every wedding and the last set of images below show exactly why I do this. The thought of missing some of these final shots would keep me up for days after the wedding. The only wedding nightmares I have are about missing a moment I could have captured – should have captured. I’ll do anything to avoid fuelling those nightmares……and to be a part of some epic dance floor mayhem.
