Good morning from caffeinated Esquire Photography in Orange County everyone! I’m one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer who is MEGA excited to share a totally romantic Santa Monica wedding I recently had the honour of photographing.
With all the exciting Engagement Shoots, Portraits and Weddings I’ve been capturing photographs of from Newport Beach down to San Diego and all the way up to Oakland – this particular wedding that I’m sharing tonight of Elaine & Lee is one of the most infectious weddings of love, happiness and unity.
I’m going to “cut to the chase” as it’s said & say that Elaine & Lee’s Santa Monica Wedding at Crescent Bay Park was not just filled with passion, romance, tears of joy, and an enourmous sense of community – it was filled with “Mitzy Mitzy.” I didn’t know what that was until I witnessed it when I was photographing their wedding ceremony and all of their friends & family were bestowing a personal wish, blessing, power, thought, prayer, etc on their wedding rings. Basically an overall and overwhelming sense of oneness & energy with everyone. Can I just say… AWESOME!
I would like to give a shout out to Brent Segorski, the Manager at The Lobster in Santa Monica. He and his entire team of attentive professionals made sure everything was perfect for Elaine & Lee’s wedding reception. If you’re ever in Santa Monica, love seafood & want incredible service – be sure to go to The Lobster, you’ll LOVE it!
I’ve put together a beautiful slide show of just a few of my favourite photographs I captured during Elaine & Lee’s Santa Monica Wedding below. But before you scroll down to check it out and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Newport Beach Wedding Photographer (Previously a Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer) that loves music & fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime. Perhaps you’re a fan of Nachos & Newcastles (My favourite snack!) like Duran Rex and I & if so – we could always meet at Fred’s Mexican Cafe on Main & PCH in Huntington Beach. They’re awesome there!
I hope you’re having a great weekend & an awesome start to your holiday season! Be sure to stay in touch for some more absolutely incredible events that I’m sharing this week. From San Diego to Newport Beach and all the way up to Ventura – I’ll have some fantastic Weddings and events that I’ve had the honour of photographing. And of course soon to come; the party at LA Fashion Week with the Kate Mesta Crew and be sure to check out the Huntington Beach Photo Shoot of Sarah for her portfolio for The Ford Modeling Agency – Cheers!
PS, If you haven’t already seen on Twitter & Facebook the two very HUGE announcements I shared last weekend – check this out. One is the Military Promotion that launched last Saturday. I had the honour of giving it to Ali & Justin when I was up at Edward’s Air Force Base with both of their parents location scouting and going over details for their Lancaster Wedding Day I’m photographing next August. The other HUGE announcement I shared is the Workshop I’m teaching with my good friend & fellow photographer Danny in Paris France. So if you’re in Paris over Christmas break, totally let me know because the workshop is very affordable & only 100 Euros per person.
PS, Check out this awesome quote I shared on Twitter keeping the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. It’s a totally new one & I really think it is so very true. “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves” -Shakespeare AND “We are all made of stars” -Moby.
