It’s been a while since I’ve blogged because I’ve been trying to keep up with weddings almost every weekend among other exciting responsibilities.  I decided a few days ago I need to at least showcase one or two recent weddings during this month.  Typically, I try and post an image on Facebook after each wedding since it’s much easier than blogging it.  Here’s wedding from last month I’m just now finishing up.

Not only did we have the privilege of photographing Russel and Maureen’s special wedding day event on the west shore’s Sugar Pine Point State Park, but we had the utmost treat of cruising to their reception in a classy Tahoe Yacht.  Getting ready photos were taken at the quaint Cottage Inn where Maureen stayed, which had knotty-pine walls and pine furniture matching their rustic lake theme. Both the west shore and north shore have a certain cool vibe about them and it was a perfect place for their personalities.  The wedding was held at the famous Hellman-Ehrman mansion which sits on the beach.  As usual, we photographed this wedding the anticipation and creativity.  Russell and Maureen were so gracious to be around, relaxed, and very friendly.  We are grateful to have spent time with them on their special day to capture their story.  Congratulations to you both.

I just returned from a destination wedding in Maui, with fun couple, Beau and Marci.  This is where Beau proposed to Marci, so this place holds special meaning to them.  I was honored to fly out to capture their Hawaii wedding with my wife.  And although I have photographed many weddings and heard great stories, after this weekend, I don’t think anyone can top this fun group.  This wedding party knew how to create excitement, and as a result,  made some great memories. The wedding on Sunday was at the Sugarman Estate, south of Wailea and Makena beach, and next door to Steven Tyler’s home.  Some of the bridesmaids saw Steven in Lahaina and invited him to the wedding, but I’m assuming by the fact I have no photos of him means he never came.  For the rest of the week, my wife and I stayed at the Marriot Wailea to celebrate an early 14th anniversary while it was roasting hot in 110 degree weather back home.  Beau and Marci and their families were very kind and hospitable to us, and we’re so thankful to be a part of their wedding.  Thank you and congratulations to you both.  Here are a few images from their Maui wedding!
