Emily and Johnny

Last Thursday I had the distinct pleasure of shooting alongside a great friend and photographer, Amelia Lyon. There’s something fantastic about watching photographers capture moments, so whenever I’m free to assist a peer, I’m always excited. Seeing Amelia in action was awesome because she wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty. Literally. In a matter of 25 minutes, she had managed to hunch, crouch, lay, and roll in the wet grass…at the end of our time at the LDS Temple in Newport Beach, Amelia’s pants were soaking. One thing’s for sure: If Amelia ever decided to quit photography, she could make a living as a contortionist. Or as a Capoeira instructor :)

The beautiful couple we were fortunate to work with was Emily and Johnny. I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such a genuinely sweet and laid back couple. The afternoon passed pleasantly because Emily just let us do our thing and trusted we’d produce the type of images she wanted. Working with Emily made me feel like I just an old friend who just happened to be taking pictures on her wedding day…I had such a great day!

Here are a few…
This is Emily's radiant face after walking out of the temple with her new husband

Here is Johnny trying to kiss his wife in public for the first time...he was more than a little nervous :)

I think brides look gorgeous when they laugh...and Emily is no exception

After leaving the temple, we when to Fashion Island to get some pictures on the carousel
