ching & james: wedding

“all of the above”

A few weeks ago, I received the opportunity to shoot with the wonderful Brian Khang for Ching & James’ beautiful summer wedding at the Pacific Palms Resort. Be sure to check his blog for more amazing photos. I am always thrilled to shoot with other talented photographers, meet new & fun people and visit gorgeous venues. This day was no exception. Ching & James were all smiles from the start.  They were at perfect ease throughout their wedding day – maybe that’s because they did such a great job on planning the entire celebration! Every detail was carefully planned out and in the midst of it all, they always took the time to make sure their vendors were doing ok. *Sigh*….I love summer weddings and amazing couples…

I just love “first looks”. It really puts the couple at ease and results in some amazing, spontaneous moments. Here’s James waiting for his beautiful bride.
