Holly + Oscar | Long Beach Wedding Photographer

Another fun wedding shooting with Nolwen from Between Lenses and Roses!ย Thank you for having me as your associate photographer for this fun, care free wedding!

It was an extremely hot Friday afternoon in May when I documented Holly and Oscar Santos’ wedding in Long Beach. Although the weather was not ideal, Holly and Oscar were an absolute joy to photograph.ย We spent the entire day being silly and laughing. We were on time, which is always good! ๐Ÿ˜›

Holly and Oscar chose The Grand in Long Beach for their ceremony and reception. I adore The Grand because the outdoor space was beautiful. Can you believe that sky? It was seriously that blue when I captured it. ๐Ÿ˜›


Holly’s Jack Purcell chucks are such an awesome idea! Oscar and his groomsmen also wore Jack Purcell chucks. I love when a wedding party add special personal touches to their wedding.

Holly was so relaxed and carefree on her wedding day. I love it when a bride is enjoying her day and not worried about all the details. Holly was an absolute joy to work with!


On our way to the “First Look” at the Long Beach bluffs on Ocean Boulevard near the Long Beach Museum of Art. Holly gets a call from Oscar, “where are you?” ๐Ÿ˜› Ok, so we were a little behind.

Holly and Oscar are so silly together. I adore their energy! Another great thing about them is that they are so appreciative of Nolwen and I and made sure that we had everything we needed. LOL. Such great people…

Isn’t the space great? You can really have a large party here and still have enough room to dance.
