EMILY AND MATT’S WEDDING

Emily and Matt are total badasses!! I love them! I had so much fun working with them because they completely embraced the concept of allowing an artist freedom to create. There are two ingredients for great wedding photography: the first is that the couple has fun with each other and the second is that they love and appreciate their photographer. Emily and Matt were absolutely perfect to work with.

.

When I first met Emily and Matt; they were accompanied by Emily’s parents Bob and Li. It was a pleasure talking to all of them about the wedding plans and what I could do for them. From the start they told me that Emily and Matt were going to be out of town and that Bob and Li would be doing all the planning. When I hear about parents taking on the full job of planning a wedding; I always get a little concerned because I know how overwhelming it can be. I was just worried about their sanity :-).

.

We had the opportunity to meet a few more times after that and Bob and Li just blew me away with their calmness, organization and overall happiness. They are now on my wall of fame as the best BPUs (Bridal Parental Units) ever.

I had the great pleasure having Dexter Lo of Dexter Lo Photography fly in from San Diego to be my second photographer; he did a great job. I also want to thank Oscar Morales for assisting me with the assembly of the Badass Booth and also for getting some great shots as a third shooter..

The Valley Ho hosts a great pool party every Saturday and these two girls wandered by and were caught up in the emotion of the wedding day:
