Wedding photos at Pacific Club:

I had the pleasure of photographing fun-loving couple Tiffany and Phillip’s e-session earlier in the year at 3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica Beach, and the beautiful Baldwin Hills. They had been so wonderful to work with, and I was looking forward to reconnecting with them again on their special day this summer. They were planning a big wedding celebration in Newport Beach and I was honored to photograph their wedding at Pacific Club.

Getting ready photos at the Fairmont Newport Beach:

My wife Charlene was my 2nd photographer for the day and we headed to Newport Beach in the morning to capture the couple getting ready. While their wedding ceremony and reception were at the Pacific Club, they had booked a couple of suites at the Fairmont Newport Beach next door for getting ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen.

While I was with the girls photographing their final preparations, Charlene was with the boys. There were lots of warm moments between Tiffany, her bridesmaids, and moms to capture, while the boys got playful taking some “selfies” of them all looking handsome in their suits. After photographing a special moment when Tiffany presented her bridesmaids with gifts, we headed down to the lobby at the Fairmont Newport Beach for her first look session with Phillip.

Pre-ceremony portraits at the Fairmont Newport Beach and the Pacific Club:

I captured their loving reactions at seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day and we used the opportunity for a short wedding photo session in the courtyard outside. It was quite a hot day in Newport Beach, and because of the strong midday sun, we looked for shaded spots with even lighting.

Rather than exchange vows during their wedding ceremony, Tiffany and Phillip decided on a more private vow exchange within Tiffany’s hotel suite. I captured this special moment between the soon-to-be married couple, as well as a shared prayer for each other in this moment of reflection. Tiffany and Phillip are both great sports fans and a basketball court next door to the Pacific Club in Newport Beach provided the ideal location for some fun shots of Phillip and his groomsmen.

Ceremony photos at the Pacific Club:

Then things took a more serious note as Tiffany was led down the aisle by her father, watched on by more than 200 guests in what was a really classic wedding event.

I captured all the emotional reactions throughout their ceremony in these Pacific Club wedding photos, as well as the touching moment when they presented both moms with flower bouquets as a “thank you” gesture. Tiffany and Phillip had decided to mix two different wines to symbolize their unity and Phillip couldn’t help but joke that he was going to down it all!

Reception photos at the Pacific Club:

We then took a few more bridal party and couple portraits after the ceremony during the golden hour of lighting, before Tiffany and Phillip made their grand entrance into the Pacific Club wedding reception. There were touching speeches and toasts to photograph, together with the mother-son and father-daughter dances, before some friends “photo bombed” Tiffany and Phillip’s cake cutting ceremony. Then everyone hit the dance floor and really let loose, which infused these Pacific Club wedding photos with lots of energy and celebration!

Towards the end of the night, I grabbed the couple for a nighttime portrait session, utilizing the elegant wine cellar and ornate library of the Pacific Club. The entire day ran so smoothly, with my good friends Melissa and Elsa at ME Weddings as the coordinators for the day. I really appreciated that Tiffany and Phillip put a strong focus on photography, allowing us the time and space to capture the most beautiful images possible and really wearing their emotions on their sleeves.
