Wedding photos at Strawberry Farm Golf Club:

I first met Jodie and Brent at my Downtown Long Beach studio around a year ago where we chatted about their wedding at Strawberry Farms Golf Club this summer. I was really honored that they selected me to capture this special day, as well as their engagement session last Fall. They were planning a Catholic ceremony at Saints Simon And Jude Catholic Church in Huntington Beach, not far from where Jodie’s parents live, followed by a rustic-inspired reception at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine.

Getting ready photos at a private residence in Huntington Beach:

The day all began at Jodie’s family home in Huntington Beach where she was getting ready with the girls. Brent and the boys were at a nearby hotel making their last minute preparations and my second photographer headed over there to capture some candid shots of this memorable occasion.

Meanwhile, I photographed Jodie as she and her bridesmaids admired her wedding gown and helped “fluff” it to perfection, followed by a special first look with her dad as her mom and grandma watched on. I also grabbed a candid of Jodie helping to fix her dad’s tie, then a funny one as he showed his empty wallet, jokingly indicating that all his money had been spent on her wedding day!

Ceremony photos at Saints Simon And Jude Catholic Church:

We then drove over to Saints Simon And Jude Catholic Church where their ceremony was to be held and I captured Jodie looking out the window of her limo in these final moments as an unmarried woman. The couple had decided against a first look session, so when Jodie was escorted down the aisle by her father, it was their first glimpse of each other looking so radiant.

I captured their Catholic ceremony in Huntington Beach for a few different angles, then photographed their candid moments of celebration with family and friends immediately afterwards.

Portraits at Jeffrey Trail:

Before the reception festivities kicked off in Irvine, we headed over to the nearby Jeffrey Trail for a short couple portrait session. The tunnel-like walkway provided really dramatic lighting for some creative off-camera shots, as well as a few intimate embraces of Jodie and Brent in this loved-up moment.

Reception photos at Strawberry Farms Golf Club:

Jodie and Brent started their reception in style with a really fun grand entrance, followed by a playful first dance and speeches from those closest to them. Then things got a little more emotional during Jodie’s father-daughter dance as she shared in this special moment with her dad.

With the rich sunset light just perfect outside, we snuck away for another portrait session, utilizing the rustic architectural features and magnificent trees at Strawberry Farms Golf Club. I grabbed a creative silhouette of them against the setting sun, as well as a whimsical close-up portrait of them kissing, illuminated by the incredible backlighting.

We then returned indoors where their wedding party really let loose, with plenty of dance floor action (and even some crowd surfing from Jodie and Brent), as well as a cake cutting (or should I say cake smashing) ceremony. I ended the night by capturing an intimate black and white of them sharing a quiet moment on the dance floor, as well as a shot of them standing behind the rustic doors of the Strawberry Farm’s red barn reception venue.
