two things i love to do are taking pictures and traveling. whenever i can combine the two i get happy like a kid with kool aid. enter this wedding in orange county california, just a hop and a skip from san diego. i was the “special guest shooter” on this wedding for my good friend Greg Bumatay (one of the nicest guys i know on the planet). i always have fun working with greg. for instance, while we were driving from the Huntington Beach Hyatt Regency where jiwon and robin were getting ready, to the Garden Grove United Methodist Church for the ceremony, greg told me the tale of black mountain road here in san diego. it was an awesome bit of local history. if you ever get the chance, ask him to tell you about it. but i digress. back to jiwon and robin!
i know right! look at her gorgeous eyes, her beautiful skin, and…ok i’ll move on :) she’s gorgeous. period.
this is my favorite part. their first meeting. we LOVE when couples want to see each other before the ceremony! we get a chance to see their first reaction, without anyone else around them. it’s such a special moment, made even better by the couple having a little time to enjoy each other’s company, alone together, before they get swept up in the hurry and distractions of their wedding day. jiwon and robin had their first meeting of the day at the Huntington Beach Hyatt Regency. the location was amazing, and so was the moment.
jiwon and robin’s wedding at the Garden Grove United Methodist Church was absolutely beautiful. that church is HUGE!
as an added bonus, jiwon and robin were total gamers. i asked if they would try this shot and they said yes without hesitation.
i love when a plan comes together. :)
congratulations jiwon and robin! i hope you are always as happy as you are in this moment. thanks for having me along.
