This was a beautiful wedding day, which started with Hotel Irvine Wedding Photography for prep, followed by driving to Rowland Heights for their ceremony, after that, we went to their reception for some gorgeous Pelican Hill Wedding Photography.

Bridal Prep

Katherine had the biggest room I have been in at Hotel Irvine! It was so nice having space to move around in. We started off getting ready with some final touches on her make up.

Once she was all done, I had one of her bridesmaids give her a letter from her soon-to-be husband. She got a little emotional which is totally understandable, but she got through it since she had her friends with her.

I got a few detail photos of her wedding dress and accessories before she got fully dressed.

I always try to incorporate friends and family in helping my clients get ready. If they are important enough to be in the room then they definitely should be photographed. It makes the photos a little more personal to them and helps tell a complete story.



They decided to do a First Look before the ceremony. We placed Eric in a way so he wouldn’t see his bride-to-be coming up behind him.


From Hotel Irvine, we had to drive a little ways to Rowland Heights for their wedding ceremony photography.


After their ceremony, we came back to Orange County to finish off their big day with some Pelican Hill Wedding Photography.
