Nelly & Bryan Wedding at The Hacienda in Santa Ana, Ca.
Such a honor to be a part of Nelly & Bryan's Wedding day! I instantly clicked with Nelly at her bridal makeup consult a few weeks before the big day. She has a smile that lights up a room! Bryan is such a cool guy and makes everyone laugh. Together they are so happy and make such a awesome couple. The wedding day started at the hotel doing Nelly's makeup :) She wanted a sexy look to pop her eyes and make Bryan melt! So of course we did smokey eyes with a tad of a cat eye mixed, for a instant vixen bride look!!!
You wouldn't know it from the photos but, we did have a mishap. Unfortunately while Nelly was putting on her gorgeous wedding gown, the zipper in the back of the dress broke. :( Even my husband ( my second shooter ) was trying anything to fix it. I was trying to keep Nelly calm and remind her that every wedding has a mishap... and hopefully one day you can look back at this moment and laugh. Nelly's bridesmaids got to work sewing her back up, as we headed over to the venue to start taking photos of the boys. Because of the slight delay, we had a moonlit ceremony. Everything turned out amazing and romantic! The best advice I can give to other wedding photographers is stay calm and go with the flow - nothing goes as planned. Thank goodness I always have my studio lighting with me because it was pitch black by the end of the ceremony. We were able to get some really cool shots, that in my opinion give a dramatic look with the lights :) Hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos :)
