Marcy & Pablo // Santa Ana|Tustin|SJC Mission Wedding

All through out 2009, Pablo would sent me comments and compliments and that he liked my photography. I never took him too serious, I just figured he was being nice & supportive. I had no clue he was even engaged. It wasn’t until I got message that he wanted to schedule an appointment to inquire my services for 2010. Wow.I got together with Marcy & Pablo, and knew they were great couple and it would be my pleasure to photograph their wedding. Marcy had these great imagination and vision of how she wanted her wedding and how important the photography was to her. A photographer’s dream!

The wedding day was not without bumps along the road that include four location changes, timing miscues, and not to mention the rainstorm that lasted all day long. But no matter what, Marcy & Pablo took in stride and I was there right along for the ride. As the photographer, I’ve experienced it all and I adapt and keep on  moving forward. The Ceremony was held at the beautiful Waverley Chapel in Santa Ana. The Chapel offer a beautiful intimate backdrop for a wonderful ceremony, we were lucky the rain held off enough for portraits. After the ceremony we drove south on the 5-freeway down to Mission San Juan Capistrano and whole time I wonder if the rain would stop for portraits. The weather graced us with only minutes to take some gorgeous portraits before everyone had to run back into the limo or we risked being soaked. Back on the 5-freeway to our final destination, the Tustin Center for the Reception.  I’m sure the bridal party was ready for a stiff drink after our long day of trying to guess the weather. It was a wonderful wedding  and I’m happy I was able to capture the memories of two wonderful people. I wish  Marcy & Pablo many years of wedding bliss.

    I know not everyone loves super wide angle shots, but I think you killed it with the fisheye view of the church!
