From the moment I met Marisa and George I knew that they were such a special couple! They had such an awesome connection! They've been dating for five years and they still make each other blush! After shooting their engagement session (here) I couldn't wait for their wedding! Marisa was so detail oriented I knew that it was going to be an affair to remember! And you betcha it was!!! From the Gorgeous Estate that they rented from the Sunrise Locations -to the custom tux that George had made just for him -it was all fabulous!!! We were all wondering what the weather was going to be like for this winter wedding, but thankfully it was gorgeous! No rain!! Woo hoo! Just a little wind -but that doesn't hurt anybody! :) It actually came in handy for the portraits -giving Marisa a gorgeous wind blown editorial type look! Loved every bit of it!!!!
I feel so grateful to have shared this special moment with Marisa & George, and I cant thank you enough for allowing me to be apart of your special day!
Marisa got each one of her bridesmaids a fancy designer bag! Can you say Michael Kors :)
Checkout this totally cute sister moment!
Im loving her BCBG heels!!! Gawgeous!!!!
Marisa you are STUNNING!!!!
Every wedding needs Gold Sequence!!! Marisa's party dress that she changed into during the end of the reception. LOVE!!!
On the other side of the house my friend/second shooter Adam was catching the guys getting ready!
I was thrilled that Marisa opted for a "First Look"! She wanted to enjoy some alone time to soak up this awesome moment with her handsome groom before their big day began!
You guys look like your straight out of a magazine! So fierce!
Its sooo awesome having my second shooter Adam there to capture a totally different angle during the same moment!
Im dying over the back of her dress!!! Breathtaking!
Did I mention how handsome George looked in his custom suit! He was rockin that suit!!!
Such a fun wedding party!!!
Get it girls!!!
Rockin their "Respect the Classics" hats!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
