Southern California Wedding Photographer – Bandy Canyon Ranch Wedding Sneak Peek!

I’m not feeling so hot so I’m having a work-in-my-pajamas-on-the-couch-with-terrible-daytime-tv sort of work day.  When I came across this moment in Ashley & Corey’s wedding it put a huge grin on my face.  What a perfect moment for a sneak peek.  So freakin’ cute.

What the heck, who says I can’t post two photos in a sneak peek?  No one!  That’s who.  On a more serious (in a super awesome way) note…

MUCH more from this beautiful day is coming soon!

Southern California Wedding Photographer – Elisabeth & Joey are married!

I enjoyed every moment I’ve gotten to spend with Elisabeth and Joey.  It’s been such a pleasure getting to know these two throughout their engagement and finally through the eyes of their friends and family on their wedding day.  I love getting to know the best versions of people through different aspects of their wedding.  With Elisabeth & Joey though, I can honestly say that they live up to their best every day.  They are just such wonderful people with impressive ideals and close relationships and it’s really been an honor to spend some time with them during this incredibly special time in their lives.  I hope they love looking back on this beautiful day as much as I do!

Elisabeth had not one but TWO amazing dresses for the day.  She sported the sweet short dress for the first half of the day which shows her more casual, easy-going style.  The second gown she put on just before the ceremony and it was downright stunning.

I absolutely love that these invitations were handwritten by Elisabeth herself.  She felt it was important that asking her and Joey’s most loved ones to attend their wedding should be penned by her own hand.  She also lined each and every envelope with that gorgeous paper.  These were so beautiful and perfect that I had no idea she had actually written the original herself!  Impressive, no?

I’m in love with the photo of Elisabeth on the right.  Everybody deserves to feel that great on their wedding day.  Pure joy.  Love it.

A special thank you goes out to Nancy Orozco and Harmony Pyper for all of their wonderful help throughout this wedding day!
