After shooting Rocki and Joe’s engagement session, I was so excited to shoot their wedding. Even though I’ve known Rocki for a long time, when she first contacted me about shooting her wedding. I originally passed. I was over the top excited about the idea of shooting her wedding, but nervous because I don’t normally shoot weddings. After a lot of thought and consideration, I decided it was probably time for me to start shooting weddings. I’ve been putting it off for a long time and have turned down many of the years. I wanted to be sure to pick one that was something I wanted to shoot and was comfortable shooting. Rocki and Joe’s wedding seemed like the perfect opportunity for me. A small, intimate, outdoor, Glendora backyard wedding. And I’m so glad I changed my mind and they booked me. They’re wedding was so much fun and was exactly the type of wedding I want to shoot. They are perfect for one another. They are laid back and so in love and their day really showed it.
Glendora Backyard Wedding
Their wedding was so perfect for them. Their son was an adorable little ring bearer. He got a little fussy during the ceremony and mom and dad were able to hold him. I love the way the three of them look up at the altar. It was absolutely adorable.
They had a cigar bar and wanted some fun pictures of all their guests enjoying their cigars. We were also able to capture the groomsmen partaking as well.
Their first dance was adorable. They were both singing to one another and laughing and just having a great time.
Rocki looked absolutely stunning in her dress. It was perfect for her.
I love ring photos. They are some of my favorite things to shoot. I love being able to search the area for something that is unique to the area. I found this lovely wooden tray and used the flowers that were on the table to capture a really beautiful picture.
They chose to shoot at Big Tree Park in Glendora. We did their first look there as well as all the formals.
There were so many wonderful pictures from this day and it was so hard to narrow it down to even these. I had an absolute blast capturing their special day. It was a perfect first wedding for me and I really hope to book more like it in the future. If you’re having a backyard wedding and looking for a photographer, please contact me.
