Weddings make me happy (Inspiration from Elings Park)

“So very beautiful! We looked through the photos again and were so completely overwhelmed. You were able to capture such emotional and joyous moments. We are grateful to you for that. Your strength, no doubt, is your ability to capture “expression” in either one person’s face or in a shared moment between two. More than anything we wanted to have a very intimate wedding and your photos really reflect this. Such a blessing. You really captured some amazing human moments. Thank you!”  — Lauren and Michael

Whenever I feel sad, I like to paint. I also paint when I’m happy, so the fact that I’ve been painting abundantly doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m blue, except when I have painted myself cobalt or turquoise.

Another thing Another favorite activity is looking at wedding photos. Yesterday, I lost myself in the photo album from a wedding I photographed last September. It was great to revisit them. They made me feel good, and I even found some five-star photos which originally I had only rated with one star.

The most difficult thing about editing photos is detaching yourself from the memories of the emotions you felt when you took the photo, and judge just by the emotions the viewer may feel in the instant they are looking at the image.

I love photographing weddings so much that pretty much every photo out of the camera brings happy memories and makes me feel great. I look at the beautiful light, composition or expression, but, ultimately, they remind me of joy and happiness. For the photos here, I chose a few that I thought would bring joy to the reader, or some inspiration to the wedding planner.

I work/play hard at a wedding to make sure I do everything possible to make it the best for you. If these photographs fill you with tears of joy, I’ve succeeded.

If these pictures inspire you in rekindling your love for your partner, I’ve succeeded.

If these pictures bring you closer to your family, closer to other human beings, or closer to nature, I’ve succeeded.

If these photographs inspire you to get in communication with a loved one, I’ve succeeded

If these images inspire you to write poetry, to paint a picture, or to take photographs I’ve succeeded.

What’s not to love about photographing weddings? There are some many occasions for success!

I posted these photos here so that you can also get ideas to plan a wedding. This dress is from David’s Bridal.

You can consider a wedding at Godric Grove, at Elings Park, Santa Barbara (as long as the music is not so loud that it would disturb the neighbors).

You can consider Pure Joy Catering (delicious to the eyes and the taste buds).

You can dance if you want to.

Mazel tov!
