Whitney + Steve were married at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana. This venue was beyond gorgeous and a little piece of heaven on earth right in the LA County!

Whitney + Steve had Justin and I come out and photograph their rehearsal dinner the night before. We don't normally photograph rehearsal dinners so it was a treat to participate in some of the pre-wedding festivities. We stole Whitney + Steve away for a quick thirty minute shoot that night and had fun with our surroundings. Here are few from that night.

Hey guys. The ringshot...I don't get it, but I like it. Wait let me look again....nope, still don't get it, but I still like it. You guys are good enough to actually go pro at this wedding photography stuff. I don't know, just something to think about. Maybe you'll heed my words and make something of yourselves someday. I only wish the best for you. That's why I want you to get off the couch and do something. Pay your dues to society would ya!? I'm sorry for yelling. It's just that I see your talent and know that you could take it so far and still you only shoot weddings on weekends. You have the power to make it cool to get married on a Tuesday and you don't. Maybe if you were only available for weddings on Tuesdays.....people would take you more serious as artists. All I ask is that you think about it. Give it a chance to breath. You can't suffocate an idea with so much promise. Then other photographers would follow in your footsteps, only choosing different weekdays. Then as a group you could cover/specialize in everyday of the week. But all of this I've just said is dependent on you going pro. I've slacked in commenting in recent amazing posts and for this I am sorry. I hope I've made you smile today. This was my intention. I love you guys.
