Ariel and Tim’s rehearsal reception and party took place at The Chileno Valley Ranch in Napa, Ca.
It is not that often that we get to photograph an entire weekend of amazing events. Ariel and Tim invited us to Napa to photograph their special wedding weekend which was created and designed by the talented Scott Corridan. Since most rehearsal dinners are not this elaborate and since most rarely end up in a magazine, I decided to design this feature post as I imagined it was featured in a magazine. The barn itself was stunning to look at, and as guests rounded the corner the excitement began. There were servers with trays of mini cocktails. Food stations lined the barn, each with a special meaning to the bride and groom. Baja tacos for Tim and deli sandwiches with pickles for Ariel. At the center of the long family feasting table was a huge selection of all American pies. The furniture and decor, along with the folk music for ambiance, made it the perfect warm up for an even better wedding day.
The band for the night was The Shots and sang late into the evening while guests danced and mingled.

Lindsay and Justin’s vow renewal took place at their home in Los Angeles, Ca.
Lindsey and Justin said “I do” for the 2nd time, surrounded by friends and family in an intimate ceremony in their own backyard. Their daughter, Isabella, was sweet and funny and loved seeing her mom dressed up. One of my favorite images is Isabella covering her eyes when her parents kissed. Dinner and dancing soon followed around the pool and the night finally ended with the cutting of the cake.

Alison and Chris were married at The Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs, Ca
Besides the fact that this was by far one of the sexiest weddings we have ever been to, Chris & Alison’s wedding was also incredibly stylish. Vintage post cards, mint green dresses, skinny suits for the guys, and a pool to call their own. The night got wild as most Colony Palms weddings do, and of course someone ended up in the pool. I just was not expecting it to be the B&G! Check it out for yourself!
Alison and Chris were featured on the WEDDING CHICKS.
We love photographing everything bridal and were honored and excited to not only shoot the cover for Your Wedding Day Magazine, but also the inside spread. The concept was the Diary of a Bride who day dreamed about her big day. Cathryn Van Breene was the talented stylist behind the concept and also was the stylist for hair and makeup.
Emma and Andres were married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Ca.
We love these two people and all of their family and crazy friends. What an honor it was to photograph this very special day. After many many years together Emma and Anders finally said I Do. The location was the perfect place for all of their out of town relatives and friends to gather. Its honestly really was so perfect. It was fun and easy and mellow. The groomsmen had no idea how to tie a bow tie so I did it for them. My crew played and joked with the guys and everyone cried when Anders said his vows including us. Everyone danced and laughed the entire night and Emma and Andres pretty much got roasted during speeches. The night ended with some impromptu break dancing on the deck.
You can catch Anders and some of his groomsmen on his show Workaholics on Comedy Central.
California Wedding Day Magazine brought us on to shoot the cover and feature spread for the Summer 2012 edition and loved the photos so much that they used two more images for two other covers. This shoot was styled and designed by Cathryn Van Breene and the location was The fabulous Ojai Valley Inn and Spa.
