November 15th, 2008 was an eventful day to say the least! Not only did this lovely couple tie the knot, but it was also the day the all of the crazy fires broke out not too far from our house. We were just about ready to head out the door to Kenny + Nhi's wedding when we saw up in the sky a huge black cloud and flames just miles away! So we quickly packed up all of our hard drives, 72 hour kits, important documents, and arranged an emergency plan for our boys. We then said a quick prayer and headed out the door, we feel so blessed that we were able to come home at the end of the night to a perfectly sound house with just ash outside our patio and surrounding grounds. Nhi + Kenny were extremely kind and concerned for our situation and we wanted to personally thank them for that (also for the brownies they sent to us a few weeks after the wedding was over :), loved them!). Despite the crazy circumstances we were still able to have an amazing day! Here are some of our favorite shots:



My favorite shot of the day!









The reception was held in Fullerton at the Summit House. The restaurant is set up on top of a hill and this is the view we could see from there.






Thank you to Kenny + Nhi for having us out, the pleasure was ours!!!

I'm only up because my boss just called me and tried to get me to drive to victorville right now. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah right, I've got to check the Lyons blog for updates. Yep, got one...and it's pretty good. I don't know...just a thought...bokeh is not my choice word, I actually think it's kind of lame. It might mean somethinglike "blurry" in japanese, since a japanese photographer coined the phrase...anyway, mix the bokeh with some glare and add a shot of wizard-ness, then you'll be drunk with perfection like the second shot from the top. Good freakin shot! That's why I say hey man, nice shot. It was a good shot man.

Love these. You are amazing. I am so curious how you do your "blurry" images (like the alley or the pic of the couple dancing)?? I have attempted this but to no avail . . . it looks to fake. Any sharing?!?

Um hello! Random question ever - but how do you get your hair to stay pinned back like in the last picture? I've tried that with bobby pins and it just kind of falls out. Any suggestions, tips, hints would be GREATLY appreciated. Also? I'm so glad your house is okay!!! Love your blog too. Provides TONS of inspiration to this fledgling little photographer. :)

I've been following your blog for a while, and I think this is one of my favorite weddings to date. Beautiful pictures! The ceremony shot of them kneeling at the altar is stunning, as well as the portraits of the couple.
