Shannon + Rob | Newlyweds | Irvine Wedding Photographer

It is with much joy that I introduce the newlyweds, Shannon and Rob! I couldn’t have been more ecstatic to document their wedding. Why? Well, because last year on my journey to become a wedding photographer, the very first engagement session that I photographed was Shannon and Rob’s. That was on 2/13/11, just one day before Valentine’s Day! It is so ironic that the first engagement session and first wedding, as a main photographer, that I photographed were of Shannon and Rob! I am extremely grateful that the lovely couple entrusted me with the important task of documenting their wedding! Shannon and Rob, from the bottom of my heart I want to say “Thank you!” Thank you for trusting my vision, thank you for being so amazing to work with, thank you for being YOU! OH! Also one big “thank you” to my second photographer, Gabriel Mora, for supporting me and believing in me!

The gorgeous Shannon prepared for the first look at the lovely Main Street Village Apartments in Irvine right across from Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine restaurant where the ceremony and reception would take place. Shannon’s make up and hair was stunning!

I just adore how Shannon’s invitations matched her cake topper! Those felt birdies are adorable!Breathtaking right? The hair, make up and beautiful lace halter dress just enhances the beauty that is Shannon!

The first look took place at Woodbridge Lake in Irvine on the bridge. Rob was adorable so full of emotion and love for his bride! Loved capturing his reaction seeing Shannon for the first time.

Ahh….the handsome men! Yes this is a perk! 😛 I love these last two images because it captures the love these two have for each other! Congratulations! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your trust in me!
