Weddings

In Part One, we saw Yvette & Gil preparing for their unique & intimate July wedding in La Habra at the Westridge Club. If you missed any of their portraits or candid reactions on the aisle, then don’t forget to check out Part One – Westridge Club Ceremony Blog. Now, without further adieu, we bring you Part Two of Yvette & Gil’s Westridge Reception Blog. These two are surrounded by charismatic¬†friends, loving family, and it really shines through when you see the lighthearted bridal party portraits we captured. Using the picturesque background Westridge offered, we were able to show-off with some sweeping bride & groom portraits. These two gaze at each other as though we’re not even there. Meanwhile the setting sun perfectly washes out their gorgeous, back-lit, & sun-kissed portraits – a perfect example why it’s called the golden hour. After the portraits, we headed to the reception. Yvette and Gil had a modern, chic room in fuchsia¬†— a Read More

Weddings

The Westridge Golf Club in La Habra was the perfect setting for Yvette and Gil’s elegant, classic July wedding. The luxuriant, green grounds provided a great backdrop to catch the fun-loving bridal party and our overjoyed couple. We captured the intimate moments of Yvette preparing for the day with her mother. She accentuated her gorgeous dress with a simple, beaded headband that made the blonde bride look like a princess. We were also able to take some unique closeup shots of the rings, combining their sleek industrial chic with a spot of nature. Yvette’s bridesmaids were a whimsical group, clad in rich, royal purple. These ladies were more than willing to pose for some cute, memorable shots, and their excitement really shines in our candid captures, too. Yvette had both parents walk her down the aisle, and what a beautiful moment! You can tell how proud they are of their daughter on her special day, and her expression of joy Read More

Engagements

When we first spoke with Yvette & Gil, they mentioned their plans to have a completely one-of-a-kind engagement session. Quite frankly we had never even seen it being done anywhere, and we’re thankful to have such creative couples with great ideas! We’ve seen holi powder used in marathons and other random events before, and of course in Indian holidays, but never before for engagement sessions. We had the opportunity to get some more typical “before” shots…before they blasted each other with color. But our favorites are the in-between candids & real reactions right after they landed a giant fist-full of powder. Those gasping expressions and uncontrollable laughter are quite spectacular moments! It’s nice to be back into engagement season! Late fall and winter are typically slow for weddings (obviously), but it provides some well deserved down time to relax, re-coop, and enhance offerings for the coming wedding season. We just re-launched the website last month after a complete overhaul to Read More
