China + Chris Wedding | Orcutt Ranch

A beautiful May wedding at Orcutt Ranch in West Hills. I had an incredible time photographing this wedding. The beautiful rustic venue and the fun and bright details were a joy to capture. I have to thank Eric of Eric So photography for having me as an associate photographer. 🙂

We met China and her bridesmaids at the Marriott Warner Center in Woodland Hills where she and her bridesmaids prepped for the day.

The ranch had a library where the wedding cake and cupcakes were displayed. They was such a wonderful idea! As you walk in the room, the couple had displayed some of the books they brought from home as well as some photographs. kkcs_china_chris_orcutt_ranch_18 kkcs_china_chris_orcutt_ranch_17 kkcs_china_chris_orcutt_ranch_16 kkcs_china_chris_orcutt_ranch_15 kkcs_china_chris_orcutt_ranch_14 I’ve never seen a navy linen jacket on groomsmen before, but this was spectacular!

Lizz + Davis Wedding | Newport Coast

Here’s another O.M.G moment! This extra special wedding is something that I have never captured before….a brunch wedding! Yes folks, you can have a brunch wedding…why not? Who doesn’t love a good brunch? I must give a huge shout out to one of my favorite photographers that I’ve worked with, Wai Reyes of Wai Reyes Photography. Without Wai, I would have never experienced this amazing wedding nor captured such delicious details! Huge props to Halleigh of Moment Privé who did such an incredible, INCREDIBLE, job at styling the entire wedding!

Lizz, or Lizzie, as her family calls her was such a joy to work with. She is the sweestest and cutest ginger bride I’ve ever photographed! I absolutely loved working with her! kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_01 kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_02 Lizz got prepped and pampered at the gorgeous Marriott Hotel in Newport Coast overlooking the OCEAN! Ugh, I would love to have my honeymoon in this suite! Actually, these aren’t hotel rooms, they are villas!kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_03 kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_04 kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_05 For the first look, we drove a short distance to a secluded park way up in the Crystal Heights residential area. The day started out chilly and gloomy, but when it was time for the first look, the clouds parted and beautiful, soft light appeared! Needless to say it’s a photographer’s dream. 🙂
kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_06 kkcs_lizzie_davis_canyon_club_newport_coast_07 I absolutely adore Lizz’s vivacious personality!

Phuong + James Wedding | Disney Concert Hall

Congratulations to Phuong and James on their wedding! It was a cold, gloomy and rainy day, but we made it work!

After the tea ceremonies at both houses, the sun peeked out long enough for all of us to have a traditional dim sum lunch in the patio. Afterwards, we headed to the Disney Concert Hall for some fun portraits of the bridal party! A huge thanks to Kevin of Kevin Dinh photography for having me be his associate photographer of the day!

Andrea + Mark Wedding | Orange

When the groom drives a classic Ford to the church, you know it’s going to be a great wedding. 😛 I want to thank Michele Menier of Smooch Photography for having me as her associate photographer.

I met up with Mark and his groomsmen at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Orange on the most beautiful fall day in October. Although it was fall, the weather was just beautiful. I mean look at that sky!
