Nielsen Family

Here are a few shots from a recent session with the Nielsen Family. We did an early shoot in Irvine on what happened to be a very fogy morning. Shooting a portrait session in fog was definitely a first for me. At first I was a bit worried but it ended up adding a cool feel to the pictures. The sun popped out for just a few minutes towards the end of our session which I was thankful for...Can't beat the golden sunlight!

Matt + Sara: Wedding

I have been looking forward to blogging this wedding for a while now but it has been hard to find time to blog as often as I would like. Matt and Sara got married last summer at a beautiful house up in Santa Barbara. For a photographer, wedding's don't get much better than this! The wedding and reception were in the backyard creating the perfect balance of an intimate, low-key setting yet classy and elegant celebration. Everyone was having a great time, everything was beautiful, and the lighting was perfect...so my job was easy!

It was hard picking out my favorites from the day so this will be a bit longer than my typical posts...Enjoy!

Not a bad place to get married!

The reception and details!

The kids and I came up with a plan to surprise the happy couple (who thought I was pulling them aside for a few more portraits). As you can see, it worked perfectly :)

Priceless expression!

The first dance...

Dinner and the reception went into the night of what had been a near perfect day!
