Wedding photos at Sherman Library And Gardens:

I first met Alison and David back in 2013 and was thrilled when they booked me on the spot to be their wedding photographer in May 2014. They were planning to celebrate at the Sherman Library And Gardens in Corona Del Mar, which is a really elegant and classic venue with lots of beautiful backdrops for wedding day photography. In the few moments that we spoke, I could tell that Alison and David were a really wonderful, easy-going couple and was excited to capture their wedding at Sherman Library And Gardens.

Getting ready photos at the Sherman Library And Gardens:

As well as my wife, Charlene, who was working as my assistant, I also had my good friend, William, as second photographer for the event. So while Charlene and I were with Alison and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready at the Sherman Library And Gardens, William was with David at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach where he was preparing with the boys.

Pre-ceremony portraits at the Sherman Library And Gardens:

The couple had decided to have a first look session, so when David arrived at the Sherman Library And Gardens, we found a shaded area with atmospheric diffuse lighting to stage it. This was quite an emotional moment for David and Alison, and a privilege to be there to capture their reactions.

The wedding ceremony was held in the outdoor courtyard of the Sherman Library And Gardens, with warm, mid-afternoon light falling on the couple as they exchanged vows and rings. Everyone then moved inside where the reception was to take place, starting off with the bridal couple’s first dance, followed by a few speeches and toasts.

With rich sunset lighting, we headed outside for a couple portrait session in the landscaped gardens, with sun illuminating the couple’s faces as they soaked up the moment. Then the party really kicked off, with lots of dance floor action to capture, a lively bouquet toss, and even some celebratory cigar smoking!
