My Brother, Tobin, Gets Married!!

I had the pleasure of photographing my Brother’s wedding to his lovely bride Kirsten in Portland, Oregon at McMenamins Edgefield, a gorgeous setting. The wedding was very much a family affair. My sister, Lara, got ordained to marry Tobin & Kirsten. Kirsten’s cousin, Rickey designed the flowers and Kirsten’s niece, Ashleigh did the hair and make-up. 001 LogoMcMenamins Edgefield has a vineyard. A perfect setting for photographing the rings. Great image and I got to eat grapes right off the vine!!DSC_8187 logoThe day before the wedding, I walked the grounds of McMenamins Edgefield and was enchanted by these birdhouses and knew that would be a perfect setting for the Bride’s Dress. I got up at sunrise and had my sister hold an off camera flash to illuminate the dress. I just love this image. DSC_8240 B&W LogoThe water tower and this garden shed was another great backdrop for the Bride’s dress.DSC_8216 LogoSuitcase belongs to the Bride’s Aunt.

I put this look together the night before the wedding as I was inspired to use another light source besides natural light or a flash. We were staying in a house on the grounds of McMenamins Edgefield. I saw these velvet drapes that looked so dramatic, I dragged the chair and lamp from other rooms. Next day got this great image of the bride. 076 Photographer's Favorite080 Blog Photographer's FavoriteHere is my handsome brother! 003 LogoDSC_8290 Logo171 Blog Photographer's FavoriteThe very happy Bride and Groom!004 Logo156 Photographer's FavoriteDSC_8506 Logo cropped and Photoshop333 Photographer's FavoriteThese photos are my wedding gift to my brother and my beautiful new sister-in-law, Kirsten of their special day.

002 logoWe got married at the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana, the oldest courthouse in Southern California. It is a historical landmark. I saw it the first time last year when I photographed a family at the courthouse. I was enchanted by the architecture, and all the movies that have been filmed there as Mikko and I are movies buffs. I thought it was a good fit for us to get married. My photographer, Alyssa Michelle Photography really captured my vision. Thank you Alyssa Michelle Photography for the wonderful images you created on our special day.

Magical Weddings – Orange County Wedding Photography

 

I had the most amazing workshop with Rick Ferro, a legend in wedding photography. He created the wedding department @ Disney World. An entire day spent with Rick was like a dream come true. We had models dressed in gorgeous gowns, hair and makeup beautifully done. I learned so much about lighting and posing. How hand placement properly done can really enhanced an image. It was such an inspirational day for me. Here are some of my favorite photos that I took.

These photos were taken inSanta Ana at City Place. So many great back drops to inspire us. It was a perfect over-cast day creating soft diffused light with only a silver reflector to bounce light on our bride’s face. Love the red and white contrast.

Vintage Wedding – Orange County Wedding Photographer

My first entry in my new blog. Thank you Andrea of Lucky 19 Branding for creating my wonderful new blog. This wedding that I photographed is very special to me as I have known the Bride, Val for a couple of years and have documented events in her life through my camera lens. Capturing her lovely wedding was a great experience for me. To see Val so happy with Charles was icing on the cake!!

 

Details at a wedding deliver the most breathtaking images. I love capturing the nostalgia of the day with shoes, rings, flowers, cake, etc. It is a visual narration of the day.

Classic black and white, showing the beauty of the dress!

 

 

 

Getting Ready! Here is the bride, Val getting ready. What a fantastic mirror to capture this moment.

 

 

 

Vintage Bride! Val reminds me of a vintage Vogue magazine cover from the 1930’s! Very Art Deco! Love that we had her bedroom to create many wonderful images. 

 

Tender Moments! Val and her parents

 

 

Flower Girl -Val’s flower girl is the groom’s lovely daughter, Charlie!  I always like keeping one thing in color and turning the rest of the image in to black and white. Charlie’s stunning hair wreath was perfect for keeping in color.

 

Very 1930 era! Love to do close-ups and profiles, too!

 

 

My favorite image of Val and Charles, This tree is very close to where they live. Val is very fond of this tree so it was important that we had this photo taken there.

 

A cute moment with the Bride & Groom!

 

Sweet!

 

The Bridal party consist of Val and Charles, children. Which I thought was so sweet!

 

The rings and cake one of my favorite images!
