I left off yesterday with the end of the ceremony at Woodland Hills Country Club in California. Today, I’m picking up after the ceremony, and after I shot the couple’s portraits around the golf course (in what looked like I had stepped into Florence, Italy, for a wedding!). This cocktail hour took place at the perfect time to get Benny Backlight with the guests. I love catching candids like this…
And then I pulled Kris Allen and his wife, Katy, aside for a quick pick. I was like, “do whatever.” This is whatever:
And then this. On a side note, I don’t have any tattoos, but Kris’ ring tattoo is something I’m totally jealous of. Not that I want that, particularly, but what an incredible statement he is making. I love the meaning of marriage the more and more I shoot it, understand it, and learn it more deeply.
Then it was reception time at the Woodland Hills Country Club. A cool entrance, no doubt.
And this ROMANTIC first dance. Love the lighting, love this couple, and love this emotion.
And they just kept kissing and I just kept shooting.
Haha… Morgan’s face.
And this party was hopping! I was impressed with the amount of dancing from Morgan and Jon’s guests!
Aww…. isn’t this sweet?! This is a good shot to end on for today.
Tomorrow I’m going to post their wedding portraits, and I have to say… you’ll want to check out this location!
