Wedding photos at Hyatt Regency Newport Beach:

I felt really honored that Meaghan and Justin selected me as their Orange County wedding photographer, particularly as they booked me through email, before ever meeting in person! We finally had the chance to meet face-to-face at my studio in Downtown Long Beach, and get to know each other a bit better as well as chat about their upcoming wedding day plans. They had decided to hold everything in the one place (making things logistically easy for them and me) and I was really looking forward to capturing this wedding at Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.

Getting ready photos at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach:

My second photographer/wife Charlene and I drove over in the morning to capture all the getting ready action as Meaghan and Justin made their final preparations in separate rooms at the Hyatt Regency. In addition to photographing Meaghan as she shared this morning with her bridesmaids, there were also some touching candid moments with her parents that reflected just how close they were as a family.

Pre-ceremony portraits at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach:

Meaghan and Justin had decided on a first look session, and although it was a very hot and bright day, we managed to find a nice shady area beneath a vine-draped walkway to stage it.

Ceremony photos at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach:

Although the ceremony was being held outdoors, it too was under a shaded canopy, which I was incredibly thankful for as a wedding photographer. I took a range of shots in these Hyatt Regency Newport Beach wedding photos, documenting the couple’s exchange of vows, reactions, and beer-pouring union as they blended each of their favorite brews!

Reception photos at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach:

The reception was held within the Hyatt’s gardens and started out with speeches and toasts, as well as the first dance between the newly married couple. I then whisked them away on a golf cart to take advantage of the golden hour light on a hilly location overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Although this meant a short time away from their reception, the whimsical sunset light was too good to miss for couple portraits!

After returning to the reception and a few more Western wedding traditions like the cake cutting ceremony and the bouquet toss, the dance floor really kicked into action. Let’s just say that Meaghan, Justin, and their friends know how to party, with plenty of air guitar action and even a recreation of the Michael Jackson “Thriller” dance!

After capturing a few final nighttime couple portraits of Meaghan and Justin within the romantically-lit gardens and hallways of the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, the couple made a grand exit through a walkway lit by their wedding guests with sparklers.
