anna + ryan: los angeles villa wedding

“i’ll be loving you forever”

What I can relate to most about Anna is our mutual teeny bopper love affair (i.e. NKOTB, Edward Cullen and dare I say Justin Bieber?!). But what I admire most about Anna (besides her height) is her success in finding such a good man and carrying out such strong bonds with her family, all the while continuing to pursue her teenage dreams. Anna + Ryan compliment each other in so many ways (besides their height): Anna is gorgeous, spunky, and fun and Ryan is handsome, strong and most importantly supportive. I am glad Anna made the first move in pursuing Ryan because I would never have gotten to fulfill my wedding photographer’s dream of photographing such an amazing couple and finding someone other than my crazy sister to share my love of NKOTB with. Thank you Anna for becoming Mrs. Metz because now Mrs. Wahlberg and Mrs. Knight are all mine! 🙂

Ok you just knew I had to:

Someone recently mentioned to me how much I love photographing feet. I said “no, I love S-H-O-O-Z!”

I almost cried when the pianist at the church played the instrumental version of NKOTB’s “I’ll Be Loving You Forever” for the bridal party procession. Tears of joy of course.

Ok everyone was dancing up a storm that night (how could they not when SoCal DJ was spinning NKOTB?! and btw did I mention the DJ was coincidentally an old high schoolmate of mine?!), but this lil’ lady caught my attention the whole time and deserves this blog spotlight. Not only did she have all the right stuff, but she even knew all the lyrics!

    lol I love how the lil lady was singing her heart out.. (third pic from the bottom) and a girl behind her on the right is crying her heart out lol

  2. Anna posted your blog on a site I am on with her and I just wanted to tell you how very talented you are!!! Absolutely breathtaking! (and I share the NKOTB love too!

    Beautiful pictures Kim. Could you please talk to David Mai who helped you as the 2nd photographer. We (at least 5 of his clients) are still waiting for his response in our photo albums, one client has been waiting for more than 2 years.

    As a photographer, I am sure you understand how much a photo album means to each client. David and Ham are not responding to us, this really hurts. I hope this won’t affect your career because this is really unprofessional from David and Ham.

    Thank you.

    I <3 Anna's dress!!! I am completely in love! <3 Do you by chance know who the designer is? I thought I might have a chance of finding it with the venue listing but no such luck 🙁

    I also am in love with this bride’s dress! Any ideas where it was from? Or any contact information for the bride where I could politely ask her? I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect dress and haven’t found anything that comes even close to this dress!
