When a California girl meets a Canadian boy at the Bangkok airport sparks fly and the rest is history. Scott and Tami currently reside in Toronto, Canada but returned to Tami’s San Diego roots to tie the knot. Lucky for me to get to know such a great couple who were hospitable and lovely, and whose family and friends mirrored those same qualities. I’m so thankful to be a part of days like this. Enjoy!

Marc and Ann-marie; A chef and a mixologist/entrepreneur fell in love and shared their day with me this June in Pasadena. I’m not sure if it’s the mutual love for food, cocktails and baseball that made this couple so perfect for me to shoot, or the fact that they are the total package power couple with awesome chemistry. Either way, when I walked into her suite at the Langham Hotel and saw that dress, I knew it was going to be a good day. From getting ready at the Langham Hotel in San Marino to the beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Dominics in Eagle Rock, to the gorgeous reception Imperial Palace in Pasadena, the day was full of beautiful moments that I had such fun capturing. Ann-marie comes from a Sicilian family and the day was rich with Italian tradition and dancing (which I ultimately got pulled into..cameras and all!). The hospitality from both families was something special and made everyone feel part of the family during this joyous occasion.
Within a month of getting married, Ann-Marie opened a Zagat rated restaurant in Los Angeles that is getting rave reviews! I think it just might be the perfect date night excuse very soon. enjoy!
