Balboa Beach Wedding

The weather for our couples wedding day here on Balboa Island (Newport Beach) was pouring rain, and with the ceremony to be held outside I was ready for plan B.   I had my rain proof plastic camera sleeves ready to go and the groom's family had purchased a few dozen umbrellas for the guests just in case.  Miraculously, 30 minutes before the ceremony was going to take commence, the rain stopped and the sky cleared!  The sun light was perfect and beautiful which only complemented the intimate wedding and the lovely bride and groom, Ryan and Nadia.  It was such an honor to be a part of their wedding day.

A quick back story on Nadia and Ryan.  Nadia is originally from Chile where she met her husband Ryan while he was down there on a surf trip. Although he only was expecting to catch some good waves he ended up meeting his future wife who then moved back with him to California.  Imagine leaving your family, friends, country, and coming to a brand new place where you only know your future husband and where you are still learning the language. Yes love is wonderful but at the same time there are sacrifices that have to be made to keep it strong given all of life's surprises and challenges.  I'm no expert at love or with relationships but that's been a realization I've had by just getting to know Ryan and Nadia.  Both of them are now my friends.  We will hang out and do a beach day or just hang out and eat bomb homemade Chilean food at their place.  🇨🇱🌶💙

5000 miles from home to marry her husband.

Angel & Helen - OC Wedding

Whew, it was a hot outside (95+ with humidity), but it didn't stop Angel & Helen from enjoying every bit of their wedding day even in full wedding attire, and making sure he dipped Helen a half dozen times throughout the day.  Angel was the happiest guy in the world the entire day, especially after reacting to his first look at his gorgeous bride Helen (photos below).  I loved Angel's intense passion and love for his bride. He even wrote his love for Helen on his car windows for the world to see.🚘💜 You know a guy is in love when he can do that. 

Scripture of the day:
"It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, 
and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain"
🌳☀️💜

Every wedding I mix it up with a few rolls of 35mm black and white film and also some infrared film. Check out the black and white photos taken on the @pentaxk1000_ 50mm f2.0.  Nothing better than a classic black and white exposure on your wedding day!

Thanks again Angel and Helen for the beautiful moments!  It was awesome to be there!  And thank you to my amazing 2nd shooter Hania Hussein (@haniahusseinphotography).


Enjoy the photos and '¡Muchos Besos!'
