Good afternoon from Orange County everyone! There are weddings and then there are “weddings.” Well…This is one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer that has one of “those” weddings for you & recently photographed in Anaheim and I have a feeling this wedding will get the emotions stirring in you as they do in me.
The Anaheim wedding I’m referring to is Amanda & John’s that I had the honour of being invited to photograph at the White House Event Center and freeze the memories of for the rest of their lives. I was introduced to Amanda & John from my client & awesome friend; Ms. Kathy Miller at Activities So Cal – who also happens to be good friends with Amanda, John and their families. Amanda & John wanted a photographer that not only could capture the day, but also would be a lot of fun to be around. Hmmm… I wonder?!? HeHeHe!
Through emails, phone calls and me making some personal visits to their home, I really got to know Amanda & John along with their family members that were involved in the wedding day planning. Let me just share with you, that one of the things I love about being a photographer – is getting to know my brides & grooms along with their stories. Especially since I’m a story teller myself, both in words and in photographs.
Fast forward to the big day and Amanda & John’s Anaheim wedding at the White House Event Center was nothing shy of incredible. Amanda was totally stunning like an Audrey Hepburn movie in her wedding gown by Castle for Brides and John’s grandmother’s pearl necklace while John and his men were crispier than a plate of Nachos in their tuxedos from Friar Tux and brown Converse.
Anaheim’s very own; Amazing Cakes provided the delicious wedding cake, Amanda’s Aunt Elivra made all the beautiful floral arrangements and DJ Amal kept the reception rockin’ throughout the night.
Also, can I just say that once again Kathy and her entire team of expert professionals at Activities So Cal rocked it and made sure that Amanda & John’s Anaheim wedding day was completely perfect. From the moment everyone arrived – to the last dance everything was perfect. They even made sure the timeline was so dialed in, that there was a break in the night where I could invite Amanda & John out for me to do some of my signature Night Romantic portraits of them.
So! Before you check out some of my favourite photographs from Amanda & John’s wedding at the White House Event Center in Anaheim 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.
I hope you’re having a terrific “TRex Tuesday” and speaking of – be sure to pop over to my Facebook Fan Page for some of the latest fun photos with Esquire Photography’s mascot; “Duran Rex.” He’s definitely been Getting Silly with everyone lately – cheers!
PS, If you’ve been keeping up with my Facebook and Twitter updates – then you have seen that I’ve brought on two new people to join me in Newport Beach to be a part of the Esquire Photography family. YAY!
Here is the really cool part. Both people joining me I’ve known for nearly 10 years. Crazy! The first person I brought on board is Linda and she will be the official new “Client Concierge” handling a lot of the back end of the business and a lot of my correspondence. Linda is a long time client, turned BFF for nearly 9 1/2 years. She joined me this past week and is already keeping up with my awesome signature service I deliver to my clients. I’m receiving all sorts of notes from brides – some of which saying: “OMG, I LOVE Linda!!” and “She should be a life coach!” Uhmmm… can I just say; “Wholly Nachos & Newcastles!”
