Nicky and Nick : Wedding

Photography

Last Saturday I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Nick and Nickyโ€™s wedding with David Jay at the Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades. The day was just beautiful and watching two people very much in love pledge their lives to each other made for a stunning November nuptial.

Nicky was one of the sweetest and kindest brides, and her smile was infectious. I believe what draws people to her is an inherent longing to possess what she gives freely: love, generosity, and compassion. Together she and Nick will make a beautiful life together and I wish them the best!

Here are a few of my favsโ€ฆ

We met the ladies at Forme Salon in Santa Monica for their wedding preparations…

The radiant Nicky…as shot with the much coveted 50mm, 1.0 lens…so buttery smooth…

Again with the 50mm, 1.0…DJ literally had to pry it out of my hands! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I told him that if the lens just happened to find itself in my Shootsac at the end of the night, it was A TOTAL ACCIDENT! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kimberlee and I then headed over to the Viceroy Hotel for the groom’s wedding preparations…this hotel is beyond sick…I could’ve shot there all day!

Nick has this air of gentleman regalness…he was gracious in allowing me to follow him all morning long ๐Ÿ™‚

Dean, Nick’s brother and Best Man, came to the rescue and tied everyone’s bow ties… ๐Ÿ™‚

All the florals were designed by Tricia with Hidden Garden…who was also the wedding coordinator…LOVED her! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nicky looking stunning…

A special thanks–again–to David Jay for allowing me to shoot alongside him and watching him work his magic. I’m so blessed to have met him and I’m honored to call him a friend…he’s done SO much for JD and I and we’re completely and wholeheartedly indebted to his kindness.

**On a completely unrelated sidenote, I’m so unbearably swamped with emails. If you’ve emailed in the past eon or so, and haven’t heard back, my bad! I’m gonna try to hammer out a chunk of responses today…thanks for your patience as I’ve been away from home for the past week…**
