When Weston proposed to Chelsey he wanted to share the experience with their closest friends. He planned a night out for dinner and wanted to pop the question on the cliffs at Trump National Golf Club at sunset. After a bit of persuasion to pull Chelsey away from the delicious baked brie that had just arrived at their table, Weston grabbed his bride to go enjoy the sunset. As he got down on one knee, Chelsey nervously ran away. After the utter shock subsided, she hugged her man and affectionately answered yes.
Chelsey surprised her groom by having me shoot a boudoir session of her. I made a photo book for her and she gave it to him the morning of the wedding- he loved it!
“Now introducing, Mr. and Mrs. Jones!”
Such a gorgeous couple!!
During our engagement session, I had a chance to know this awesome couple and I thought they were perfect for one another. Watching them interact on their wedding day confimed it.
As we took the couple shots, the sun was setting with the ocean and Long Beach as the backdrop. I was in heaven!
I don’t just take pictures at weddings. I play hair dresser, make up artist and bride’s assistant. I carry hairspray, extra bobbi pins, shout wipes, the bride’s powder and lipgloss, tissues and some Xanax.
(Ok, maybe not Xanax, but I may have access to a shot of tequila at last moment’s notice to cure wedding day jitters.
When the bride and groom has the most insane candy bar I’ve ever seen, you better believe I’m including lollipops in the ring shot!
Thank you so much, Chelsey and Weston! I had such an amazing time photographing your wedding! What an amazing day!
