Driving down to southern California to photograph weddings and engagement sessions is actually something I love, even more than flying down. Time in the car allows me to think, be quiet, pray, catch up on calls, listen to audio books, dream, get inspired, and breathe. I had come down to southern California to photograph Michael and Marissa’s wedding in Diamond Bar, California, the last of several soCal weddings this 2011 year. Michael was a true gentleman as I observed throughout the evening, and Marissa, a fairy-tale princess bride for sure so excited and happy. They both were in love and it showed. For this wedding, we had three photographers, with three locations to photograph (the getting ready location in one city, the ceremony in another city, and reception in another city), with a good hour of Friday traffic in between each destination.
After arriving at the reception, we didn’t have much light to play with for the wedding party/bride and groom photos,…but we made it work! I was able to play around with other lights we could use to be creative. Here are just few image teasers from the day.
