James and Lindsay_head

James and Lindsay started dating way back when they were 16 and 17, and amazingly managed to survive dating long distance throughout college.

Their wedding was held at the beautiful Palmdale Estates.

This wedding had a ton a details to photograph, she rode up to the wedding in a horse drawn carriage, the boys showed up with the groups favorite beer in hand, "Pliny the Elder" (which was a fun prop), and the couple even peddled up to the reception on beach cruisers (yes Lindsay did ride a bike in her wedding dress, loved it).

The wedding was beautifully decorated, the location was amazing, the weather was perfect (look at those clouds!), and the couple picked the perfect time of day for it all to happen (sunset of course), enjoy!

Rochelle and Travis_head

Rochelle and Travis… where do I start. I met Rochelle about 15 years ago, she was a bible study my Mom lead at our house, which I believe was called G4G or girlies for God… which is so horrifically cheesy that I’m ashamed to be apart of this family! (Just kidding Mom, love ya). Any way, Rochelle was a “girly” (girlie?) and we stayed friends pretty consistently from that point on.

Rochelle would occasionally call me, wanting advice on what to do about this and that, or she would just need to talk about some boy that was causing her trouble… but then there was Travis, there wasn’t anything but good flowing in from Rochelle about Travis. In fact she talked about how great this guy was A LOT, so it came as no shock to me when I found out they were getting hitched! Lucky for me, I got the calls like I usually do, but now she needed help with all the “creative stuff” for her wedding.

Her wedding was photographed at the beautiful and popular venue, my favorite local venue, Koetsier Ranch. The wedding highlight video was shot by us (see below), and the photos were shot in collaboration with Christopher Robb one of Rochelle’s friends from college.

This is one of the first times we focused a lot more heavily  on videography, everything was shot on the amazing little Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR, the equally fantastic  Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* , the Canon Telephoto EF 135mm f/2.0L and everything was supported by a Redrock shoulder mount and follow focus rig. Audio was recorded on the Zoom H4n.

Chris and Alisa wedding_head

Chris and Alisa where a blast to work with, I’m always appreciative of a laid back couple. I’m even more appreciative of brides who wear fun shoes.

There are two things that make this wedding stick out in my mind:

-The first being the new technique we came up with that consists of “Super Clamping” and “Magic Arming” our Nikon D700 camera to the limb on a bush right behind the ceremony and camouflaging it with leaves. We then set the camera off using our Pocket Wizards at the appropriate times throughout the wedding. But the funny thing is, the little ring bearer who was also the son of the groom, heard the camera clicking during the ceremony and walked over to the bush to investigate (see photo below). We will do an entire blog post on this technique soon… Just got to finish editing all my spring weddings that piled up.

-The second thing is something Alisa did during the ceremony. After finishing her vows to Chris, she leaned down and made the same promise to Chris’ little son, which I thought was a very cool gesture and just about cried, I had never seen that done before.

All that being said it was good to be back at Seven Sycamores Ranch again, I’ve had really good luck so far working with that venue in the past.

It was also good to be back taking some good group photos at Goods Goods =)

James and Jennifer finally tied the knot! According to friends and family James and Jennifer dated for approximately 349 years before making it official. The couple was married by long time friend Tanner Boley (who I’m convinced decided to shorten the ceremony to three minutes just to screw with me). This beautiful backyard wedding in Los Angeles came complete with a fire pit and trampoline! Enjoy.

The following is an example of what I got while experimenting with using my close up lighting kit as a quasi “ring flash”. The kit is definitely not made for this purpose, but it created cool effect none the less. Robert's2 Robert's3
