Matt was the happiest I had ever seen him. He never stopped smiling on his wedding day and he couldn’t get enough of his stunning bride. He is a man in love! Sarah completes Matt. She matches his smiles with bigger ones. Everything she does is about them, the two of them. Their wedding day was centered around their union in Christ, and their family and friends surrounded them in that commitment. It was a beautiful day and I was honored to be a part of it!

 Daniel and Matthew Sienna the flower girl! curls, ribbons, and bows Getting ready to see his bride! First look! I love how he’s so focused on her :-) I love First Looks because now we had plenty of time for portraits! adoration I asked them to kiss because in order for me to get the whole window in the frame I had to crouch below them and it would not be flattering for them to look down at me. I suppose I could have said something funny to make them laugh, that would have been a great shot…but I’m not funny. This has become my signature shot. Everybody looks good from above, and it really opens the eyes! love, love, love Matt and Sarah got married at one of the original homesteads in Simi Valley so I wanted to use the house itself as a backdrop and prop. And I love porches! and kissing photos :-) I also love sun flare! this corrugated metal barn was a perfectly gritty contrast to these beautiful people A green door! She rocks it! doesn’t this photo feel like it was your mother’s? time for just a couple more photos before hiding the bride. in the garden a garden bench under a tree, and two people about to marry each other! I love weddings! hahaha! He’s a goofy guy. A handsome one, though. with his guys Brothers! Her daddy coming to see her before she became a married woman. This moment was so precious! Sarah with her girls this photo cracks me up! Sarah was talking to someone and started walking and forgot her maid of honor was attached to her and holding her dress off the ground! This little guy was not one to be photographed, so I snuck one while he played on the porch waiting for the ceremony. watching his bride come to marry him wedding march I’m posting the giving away shot because it’s so rare for me to be at such an angle to actually capture the exchange of the bride from father to groom. I love the hands! since they were married in a gazebo I had the opportunity to walk behind it to capture the sand ceremony. they noticed me and posed for a picture during their ceremony! So happy to be married! Sarah with her flowers rings I love candids, too! This was during the family pictures after the ceremony. Sienna and sun flare! my dear, darling friends goofy groomsmen delicious light! yummy cake detail of rings in a calle lily first dance :-) cake cutting! I like to get a close shot of the hands together cutting the cake. Kinda classic. and of course a cake cutting’s not complete without a kiss. Bubbles! and good-byes It was a true privilege to photograph your wedding, Matt and Sarah. May the lord bless your marriage!
