This past weekend I had the great pleasure of shooting with Bree from Brienne Michelle Photography in the beautiful wedding of Lisa and Dali. They were married in the beautiful city of Pasadena and held their reception at the Athanaeum on the campus of Cal Tech. Most of the wedding party met at harvard, so I was around very smart people all day, but they let me take their pictures anyway. They had a very interesting and engaging "east-coast-ness" to them which I liked a lot. I haven't had a lot to blog lately, so I'm putting up a few more images to make up for it. Here are some of the images.
Loved this dress shot
Love in an elevator, livin' it up as I'm goin' dooowowown
Who doesn't like an elevator?
Dali, the groom is in the middle of the seven.
She and my camera had a staring contest. She won.
They had a fabulous candle lighting part of the ceremony
where the dad's lit their candles from the big church candle
and then walked to the back of the church, where they sent
the flame up through the congregation sitting in the pews.
Then the mothers lit their flames from their sides, and
placed their candles next to the unity candle, which the
bride and groom lit together. Kind of cool imagery.
I thought this balcony of the church looked straight out
of Indiana Jones, complete with spider webs and a silhouette
shadow of a statue through the window. I started to look for
numbers on the floor, or a secret passageway, but then Bree
told me I had to take pictures. Oh well.
The getaway car was incredible.
I'll let the picture speak for itself.
It is common in Pasadena culture to give high-5's to brides
passing you in the hallway of really nice hotels.
We wanted City Hall, but another group got the permit before us.
So, we walked in the street in front of city hall, technically not on
the sidewalk so we were safe, and still got some fun pictures there.
