Austin + Jean were married on February 7th at the Occidental College in Los Angeles. This was an interesting day as it was a 100% forecast to rain the ENTIRE day. Not only were we praying for a break from the bad weather, but we heard that Austin's grandmother praying hard as well! Upon arriving to the Langham Hotel in Sierra Madre for prep photos the clouds parted and the sun shined on through...the day could not have been more gorgeous! See, prayers do get answered! Oddly and lucky enough, we had no rain until, literally, the minute the reception started and then it came down like cats and dogs!!!

While Justin attended to the men getting ready I found Jean waiting in her room and all beautified, thanks to talented make-up artist and hair-dresser extraordinaire Nicole DeAnne.


Jean was apparently excited:)


Austin played it cool...



Jean seriously makes for a gorgeous bride!





LOVE this shot by Justin!

The first glance.



My favorite shot of the day, simple, classic, elegant...

Second favorite, artistically shot by Justin.












Austin + Jean were the best to work with!!! We also had such a fun time hanging with them at the WPPI Convention a week later in Las Vegas! Click here to see their slideshow with more awesomeness from their wedding day!

WOW, these shots are ALL amazing. In Justin's favorite is that a reflection and a mirror? I love it slash I'm confused by it, haha!!! Also, quick question, the grain in most of the photos, is that from PP or is that in camera?

These are beautiful, no...Enchanting, yes enchanting is the word! Nice work. :) I don't want to look at anyone else's work today to be inspired I just want to keep running the shots from the slide show through my head and lock those feelings and moments in as to what everyone and anyone would want to walk away from a wedding with (couple or photographer). Thanks for sharing your amazing work and being such an inspiration (I read your blog often and it never disappoint's).
