I have never seen a bride get ready so quickly! We had to hurry to beat the rain that was coming any moment. I blinked and Monica was ready to go. No stress, just pure excitement about seeing her almost hubby for the first look and knocking out some great images around the Mitten Building. (I could shoot here for every wedding and be happy.)
Monica and Justin pulled off a great DIY, rustic wedding with great fall colors. Wait until you see some of the fun details. And you gotta love a bow tie! Congrats you guys!
And man, these guys knew how to let loose...
Dress: made by Monica's sister!
Cake and Cupcakes: Sweet Treats

I enjoy being around Nicole and Jessica so much. One of the reasons I'm so passionate about what I do is because I'm around love all the time. And these two... these two have been together for eight years already but they act like they just started dating. They are just so cute together. I'm looking forward to crying at their wedding in March.
And by the way, Jessica's family owns and runs my favorite valley restaurant. When we first met and they mentioned it, I had to get up and hug her with joy. Do you want some of the best southern/creole food in LA? Head on over to Les Sisters in Chatsworth. I like so many of their dishes that I often go for lunch and get a ton of side orders so I can have a little of everything! You can't go wrong with a restaurant whose tag line is, " So many hushpuppies, so little time"!
I'd been excited to shoot Reiko and Scott's wedding from the moment we met last year. I loved the way these two laughed together, what they wanted their wedding to represent and all the fun details they were planning. Plus they were having it at the Inn of the Seventh Ray, one of my favorite local venues.
Once again, it was hard for me to pick my favorites so make sure to view the slideshow below if you'd like to see more of their day. Congrats you guys!
