{ Sharon + Roger | Seven Degrees Wedding }

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I first met with Sharon & Roger over Pinkberry (mine with strawberries + tons of mochi!), introduced by my friend & amazing coordinator Uyen. As in all initial meetings, I’m always looking for that “click” that makes for an awesome photographer-client relationship, and Sharon & Roger knocked me off my feet! They were so fun-loving, silly, laidback & sweet, so it was no wonder that when their wedding day called for rain, they remained completely happy & calm. Seven Degrees has an unmatched artsy & modern vibe both inside and out, so we were still able to get some stunning indoor portraits, and the tent set-up, even if it wasn’t part of the initial plan, was breathtaking! The pastel lanterns made my heart skip a beat!

A fun midday moment was when one of the groomsmen asked how we met Sharon & Roger. When we explained that we were introduced by Uyen, he said he had thought we were all friends from way before :) That completely warmed my heart as it means the world to me when clients become friends!

Enjoy this peek into their beautiful wedding day, starting with Sharon’s three swoonworthy dresses…

I love how every aspect of a wedding serves as a reflection of a couple’s personalities. The color palettes that adorn the day, the choice of food to be served, the selection of dance music at the end of the night. And one of the biggest expressions is undoubtedly the choice of venue – the backdrop against which all the evening’s memories will be created. I LOVE both seeing new venues and revisiting ones I’ve photographed at before, since every couple puts their own spin on the location!

If M & P’s venue choice were to speak for them, it would describe them as modern, fashion-forward, considerate and conscientious. The Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach perfectly mirrored their style and personalities and it was a joy to share in their wedding day! A big thank you to the lovely and talented Bonnie Tsang, who invited me to come along. I adore working with my clients as the main photographer, but love second-shooting as well – it’s such a great opportunity to take chances and flex my creative muscles sans the usual responsibilities of being the main photographer!

We started off at one of the bridesmaid’s homes, which was absolutely stunning. The fresh and clutter-free location made for some great photos!

We then headed to Seven Degrees for a sweet first look and some relaxed portraits inspired by the venue and the surrounding architecture:

Laughing photos are my absolute favorite!!

Sparkly-sweet lighting? Coming right up!

Some peeks at the artistically modern decor of Seven Degrees. How utterly fabulous are the hanging mobiles?

The beautiful & touching ceremony. Like always (it never fails, never!) I found myself blinking through tears a few times:

I love how the quintessential Southern California hills frame the venue on all sides. They really play up the contrasting sharp and modern vibe of the venue!

Now before we go on please take a deep breath, hold onto your seats, and prepare yourself for these details. The purpley-pink goodness was just breathtaking!!

Dancing the night away…
