Lauren + Andy were married a few weeks back at the LDS Temple in Los Angeles. You may recall this fabulous couple from their engagement session a few months back. This wedding was really meant to be for us. After speaking with Lauren's mom we discovered that she (Lauren's mom) is best friends with one of my first cousins and Andy's dad is one of Justin's dad's closest friends (if that makes any sense...)!

We had shot quite a bit at that temple before so we were determined to find something unique around that area to help make Lauren + Andy's photos different with a twist of awesome-ness! Luckily, we found a wall just a few blocks away that was completely radical! Scroll down and you'll see what I'm talking about!





The scattered shadows on this photo make me happy!


The grass on the temple grounds was being trimmed and there were these blue dumpsters on the far side of the lot, so of course we took advantage! We thought it was a creative contrast.







Behold....THE WALL and my favorite shot of the day!












I'm usually not too big on posting the bouquet and garter toss shots, but I thought that these two topped the cake!



Lauren + Andy have been such sweet clients! Click here to see an online slideshow with more photos from their wedding day!

I love your work and am so amazed and the looks you produce... how do you get such a sheek vintage look? Is it your lens? Photoshop? I love it. Mary Jordan

What I love about looking through your photography is that you take a couple and place them in a normal average setting. The end result is pure fabulous as you make the ordinary seem extraordinary. I know that is cheese but it is what I think at each glance.
