Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! I’ve got some uber-sassy romance to share with you over a cup of coffee in rainy Orange County. I recently had the honour of photographing Laura & Jorge’s Riverside Wedding at The Mission Inn with clear blue skies and a gorgeous starry night for some of my Signature Sexy and Romantic night portraits. Oh wait. the gorgeous night was for the swinging party that was going on for the reception in the Spanish Art Gallery. Hee hee hee!
You might remember The Mission Inn from Angel & Brian’s Wedding Reception that I photographed earlier this year back in June. So returning to photograph not only Laura & Jorge’s reception, but their romantic wedding on the staircase made for an absolutely perfect day. Plus, I’ve photographed many weddings at The Mission Inn over the years and it’s one of my favourite locations to photograph weddings.
Laura & Jorge’s Riverside Wedding was one of those days that seemed more than perfect. When I arrived at The Mission Inn, I was able to capture some fun candids with Laura’s ladies in waiting along with a few boudiour portraits as well. After everyone had their finishing touches wrapped up, Laura & Jorge opted for a first look with each other with their family & wedding party. I absolutely love doing first looks. They give my couples an opportunity to have a more private moment seeing each other for the first time or along with a small group of their friends & family.
ALSO! It lends to a huge time saver for the wedding day. We’re able to take care of quite a few portraits prior to the wedding ceremony and then have more time for my Signature Sexy & Romantic portraits.
I loved the touches that Jorge’s colleagues in the honour guard added to the ceremony, portraits and the group portrait with everyone giving a hearty cheer while tossing rose petals in the air celebrating the day. I also had the opportunity of working with a great videographer and DJ for the first time too. Walter Pawluck is a super cool and easy going videographer and DJ Jim Smith from Sure Shot Entertainment services rocked the reception making sure everyone was having a great time.
