Good evening from Orange County everyone! Being a Wedding Photographer centrally located in Newport Beach for weddings in Southern California definitely has quite a few advantages. I’m a hop, skip & a jump in nearly every direction to photograph weddings from San Diego to Orange County & Los Angeles, all the way up to Ventura & Santa Barbara or perhaps to head inland to Riverside as well. I’ve even traveled internationally, which was a total blessing.
One of the great things about being able to travel so much around Southern California is I am blessed with meeting and working with some of the most amazing couples in the world.
Recently I had the honour of photographing Melissa & Justin’s Ventura Wedding at the Wedgewood Buenaventura. From the beginning of their wedding day – everything was absolutely beautiful. Melissa’s was absolutely stunning her wedding gown from Alfred Angelo & rockin’ pumps from My Glass Slipper, their wedding flowers were from Floral Designs By Roni in Ventura, an absolutely deeeeeeeeelicious cake by A Gift of Taste. I’ll have you know that the Sexy D Rex behaved and didn’t have his cake & eat it too. LOL!
Melissa also partook in the age old tradition of having something old & something borrowed for her wedding. When you see the beautiful veil that Melissa had on for her wedding day, it has been in the family and used for her sister’s wedding as well. Her family keeping traditions and special momentos alive is just one of the many romantic stories that I love about weddings.
If you’re checking out the portrait in this article of the four of them on the beautiful golf course during sunset just after their wedding ceremony and they look familiar, it’s because I photographed their Harley Davidson inspired Engagement Shoot / Family Portraits up in Mentryville. Which you can see in their photographs – was a total blast!
I also want to give a shout out to Sarah, Amy and the team at the Wedgewood Buenaventura. Those two ladies seriously rock and are a team of seasoned professionals that will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that their couples receive the red carpet treatment.
But before you scroll down to check out some Melissa & Justin’s totally gorgeous Ventura Wedding at the Wedgewood Buenaventura 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 being a photographer celebrating more than 28 years capturing Weddings, Portraits and Engagement Shoots from Southern California to London, feel free to contact me anytime.
PS, Here’s an awesome quote I recently shared on Twitter that I think helps keep the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. “”Great photographs are not made by a camera, it is made by a human being with a mind” – Arnold Newman” Love it!
PSS, I’m still on the search for a ROCKIN assistant and a couple KILLER replacement Portrait and Wedding Photographers to join the Esquire Photography team in Newport Beach, San Diego and Ventura. If you or some you know may fit the bill, totally contact me ASAP. I’m not sure how much longer I can keep up the 18, 22 and even 24 hour days. Thanks!!!
