  • The Stories!

    I believe the camera is the most incredible invention ever invented. It captures actual moments and emotions connecting those in the picture forever to the photographer, which is why I love it when the clients become my friends.

    Weddings, Wedding VenuesA Story in Time Photography, Best Wedding Photographers in Los Angeles - 2013 Bride's Choice Award Winner
     

A child at a wedding means that child is loved. They have a special tie to the bride and groom. Sometimes they are their younger brothers and sisters, their nieces and nephews, the children of their friends or even children they once babysat. Sometimes, they are even their own children. I always look forward to photographing kids at weddings because I never know what they are going to do… No one does.
Some will follow instructions and take their responsibility so seriously that the childish one is me. Other run, giggle, and laugh… right in the middle of the ceremony, and it’s adorable. Girls will twirl in their dresses and boys will fidget with their ties.

I have seen children stare at awe at a wedding dress. I have seen them sit down in the middle of the aisle, refusing to take another step and others that run to the arms of the groom. I have seen kids be the first one on a dance floor and others that slept under tables the whole time.

If you are going to have young children at your wedding, remember the following:

1. Explain to kids what they are doing by showing them pictures,  videos…practice by playing.

2. Remember they will be nervous. That aisle is long. A lot of people are watching. Let them hold on to someone and it’s okay if they sit during the ceremony or  do not walk in during grand entrance.

3. Give them something kid like to do… yes throw flowers, but also hold balloons…let go of balloons, blow bubbles, play with ribbon wands etc… And um… the real wedding rings might not be safe on a pillow in a little boy’s hands.

4. Remember children do not have be in every group photo. Candids of them being kids will be the best memories ever.

5. Enjoy their antics, their laughter….their presence. They are kids. Kids that were special enough to be in a wedding.

Steven noticed the pretty girl with the sweet face and kind eyes. He didn’t know her, but they had mutual friends and so he found himself taking her to the movies without her parents knowing. He felt horrible leaving her alone in the rain, but Jessica had insisted he leave before her father arrived. Jessica went home and as any young girl does, she had to tell someone about the boy who was capturing her heart. Her aunt listened and told her she had a week to tell her parents that she had a boyfriend. It could not be a secret.
Fast forward to Downtown Disney where Jessica was sitting for a cartoon artist. In the crowds, she believed she saw her parents watching her. But then she dismissed the thought. They had no reason to be there. The cartoon artist motioned her to come look at the drawing. There were the words, “Will you marry me?” Jessica turned to find Steven on one knee and her family watching the boy she had once hidden from them, proposing to love her forever. She said, “Yes.”

It was a virtual meeting that began this love story. Donny contacted Michelle when he saw her profile. He was driving back from Vegas. His first words to her would be…”Hey! What’s up?” Even though this was not the most thought provoking line, it still got Michelle’s attention. After scoping his profile, Michelle answered and numbers were exchanged. The conversation and the texts would go on for hours. Donny knew he had to meet her. Within a week they were sipping on Starbucks, talking, laughing and bonding over the fact that they both loved Family Guy. (“Lois, Lois, Lois, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy”..”What?” “Hi!”)
They both proclaimed to be shy, but Donny saw confidence in her and Michelle didn’t have to rationalize why she liked him. The nagging feeling of doubt was replaced with the nagging feeling that this relationship was right. They were the couple that flowed and click.
The following year began with a hike in San Francisco on New Year’s Day. Donny fidgeted and insisted they climb a boulder which sat above the ocean. It was on top of this rock, with jagged rocks and ocean water below, where Donny asked Michelle to stand and where he proceeded to get down on his knee. He asked Michelle to be his wife and she of course said, “Yes.”

Lacolle wrote a letter about Chris… about the boy she liked. She mailed it to her friend, his cousin. Years later, it was read in front of family and friends by her Maid of Honor and the boy sat beside her… now her husband. You could see their playfulness had stayed throughout the years. After their First Look and their First Kiss they did their traditional, “hand shake.” The hand shake they automatically did when they celebrated winning…when they were happy.. when everything was perfect. Today, they had won at love. They were happy and everything was perfect.

The first thing Victoria noticed about Jessie was his broad shoulders and nice arms. She knew that he would be a phenomenal hugger. An entire year would go by, before she would get to feel that hug. It was at the Queen Mary for Halloween. Victoria and Jessie ran through the mazes. Whether they were scary or not, Victoria made sure she was held tight. Phone calls and Myspace conversations finally led to a New Years Party. They talked, they danced and Victoria knew that something was about to happen. She stood next to him and waited as the countdown began. “This is it. Something’s gonna happen. 3! 2! 1! Happy New Year!”….and nothing. That’s right NOTHING! Suddenly, one of their friends came up to them and asked Jessie, “Did you do it?” Jessie turned to Victoria and mumbled, “Oh, yeah,” and kissed her…on the cheek. Yup…sigh.. on the cheek. Not wanting to wait another year, Victoria just looked at him and said “Really?” and grabbed him and kissed him. Jessie then asked Victoria to be his girlfriend on January 1st, 2009.
Jessie might have had to have been kissed, but he knew he wanted Victoria to be his for the rest of his life. So he planned his proposal. Unfortunately, Victoria figured out what was going to happen when she saw Jessie hug her mom on the way out to a special party. She even practiced in the bathroom of the restaurant how she would react to seeing the ring and hearing the words. Dinner ended and no question. It was on the Gondola ride where Jessie proposed and she was not expecting it. Suddenly, emotion took over and all the practiced facial expressions were forgotten. Tears of happiness overcame them both. The arms she admired the first time she saw him, would hug her forever.
