Nicole and Paul's Wedding

Woo Hoo! They're finished! One fantastic wedding this summer was that of the Kent's. They were married way back on July 11 at the beautiful Faith OPC campus in Long Beach. Thanks to my good friends Steve and Bree, we had the day covered from all angles and had a ton of fun along the way. Steve even had some crazy shooting out of my sunroof as we drove. The whole day was beautiful from start to finish, and Paul and Nicole were so relaxed and "in the moment" the whole time. I love shooting weddings that not only feature beautiful brides, but feature our beautiful savior, Jesus Christ, as the ultimate treasure. Here are a few images from the day. Enjoy!

The preparation:

Paul and Nicole each exchanged gifts and letters before the ceremony.

complete with their monogram.
Nicole was a stunning bride.
You can tell by just the hair!

A delightful bunch of bridesmaids
One of my favorite portraits. ever.
We're cool. We know it.
The picture says it all

We did it! WooHoo!
Now we're allowed to do this
and this...
...and this...
...but not this. ever.

An oldie but a goodie!

So, I'm back in the saddle, so to say, through galavanting around the world for now, and it's time for a Post. and a Kent. These shots are of Nicole Post and Paul Kent, who recently became Mr. and Mrs. Kent (I'm just about done editing the wedding, no thanks to Bree and Steve who helped me take 10,000 from the big day). But before I post the shots from the wedding, I wanted to put up a few from their engagement shoot which took place earlier this summer. Also, I had a blast at camp with the Jr. Highers from my church (an exciting video coming from there soon) as well as a killer trip to the Midwest with plenty to post, so I should have enough to do in the next few weeks. Also, Band Camp starts tomorrow for the students at Valley Christian High School, where I teach, so we'll be having fun there all week. Paul and Nicole, thanks so much for letting me capture your day. I am spoiled having such incredible and good-looking people to work with!
