Ritz Carlton Dana Point Wedding

  • September 27, 2010

When I met Meredith for the first time about 9 months ago, she made it clear to me that she was game for doing pretty much anything to get an awesome photo.  Her eyes lit up as she explained how much she wanted to lay on the staircase at the Ritz Carlton, and that was the moment I knew we were a perfect match!  One of the million reasons I love weddings is because the bride looks the most beautiful she’ll ever look, and (in my opinion) has every right to exude supermodel-like confidence, especially when it’s in front of my lens :)  I’m keeping this short, because I want to get these images posted before Meredith and Chris leave for their honeymoon.  Here’s a little teaser to hold you over!  I’ll be doing another post with lots more images in a few weeks, including some hillarious dancing shots…

The sweeping staircase and abundant natural light at Meredith’s parents’ home made it the ideal spot for bridal portraits.

Meredith’s Justin Alexander gown was TO DIE FOR!  Lots of lace, a bit of sparkle, and a plunging neckline…Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton wedding

I always teach my brides how to stand so their bodies look as amazing as possible.  I think it’s working :)wedding photographer Orange County

This shot was taken the second Meredith looked up the aisle at her soon-to-be husband.  I cry at almost every wedding I go to, especially during daddy-daughter moments like this.  Good thing my camera hides my teary eyes!purple bridesmaids dresses
