Aimee & Mike- Fullerton Wedding Photography

I think there’s just something romantic about trains.  Maybe they make me think of old movies, I’m not sure.  But I love to ride the train!

That’s why I love Mike & Aimee’s story.  They met on the Metrolink!  How great is that!  Every day each of them would board the train on their commute to work.  They both noticed each other long before they actually met.  Don’t let the fact that Mike is a detective fool you… Mike’s a shy guy.   But eventually he mustered up enough courage to talk to the cute blonde girl with the great smile.  Once he did, they started dating soon thereafter.

And you can see why.  Isn’t she beautiful?

I had met Aimee  a couple of times at church years ago.  I had taken a photo of her daughter when she was little at a church event in the park and had given her the photo.  When she called me about shooting her wedding she reminded me of that photo, saying that was one of her favorite photos of her daughter.  She’s not so little anymore though!

This was Aimee’s parents cake topper from their wedding.  And each of the tables were named after the stops on the Orange Country Metrolink line.

Such a beautiful day and one of the most fun receptions I’ve been to in a long time.  I laughed until my belly hurt!  Thank you so much for allowing me to share your day!

Robert & Elyse – Orange County Wedding Photography

The first time I met with Elyse I thought, “This is my kind of girl!”  I couldn’t wait to shoot her wedding.  Elyse is a graphic designer so needless to say, I got excited as she talked about all of her ideas for the wedding.  And knowing that her and her family were doing it all, even the flowers, I couldn’t wait to see how it all turned out!  They did not disappoint!

Rain has been a them for these two and me.  It rained when we did their engagement shoot.  And it was set to rain the day of their wedding too.  I prayed for days that a God would keep it dry until 5:00, when the ceremony started.  After that, it could pour buckets.  Well….. that’s exactly what happened!  It started raining right after their first look.  It rained for a couple of minutes and then it stopped for the rest of our photo time.  Thank you!

Robert and Elyse, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.  You are so much fun and you kept me laughing all day!
