Stephanie and Sam booked me to photograph their wedding way back in January, so for me the anticipation was high. But when I arrived at the Ambassador Campus in Pasadena a couple Sundays back, I immediately felt relaxed. Stephanie and Sam were so calm, cool and collected and that energy influenced the way I photographed them. We had time to do a “first look” and all the group shots prior to the ceremony, which aided the relaxed vibe and made it possible for Sam and Stephanie to enjoy more time with their guests.
I loved the green and orange color palette that Stephanie chose. It was very cool and sophisticated. It reminded me of my trip to Tuscany a couple years ago. The location they chose was great too. Growing up in Pasadena, I have probably driven past the Ambassador Campus a thousand times but I had never actually been there. I might just have to add it to my location list for future shoots.
Thanks to Teresa for being my second shooter. You were awesome! And, a big, big congratulations to Stephanie and Sam!
Allison Elliott (no relation) did a beautiful job on make-up for Stephanie and her bridesmaids!
How cute are the flower girls’ Converse?!
In keeping with Jewish customs, Sam and Stephanie did a pre-ceremony Katuba signing, making it official!
Love the San Gabriel Mountains in the background and the double rainbow!
What’s a wedding blog post without a good dancing shot?
