Julie and James!

Our good friends Julie and James tied the knot on April 25th, 2009. I was only a guest at their wedding, so I got the best shots I could without getting into the main photographer's way. I didn't run around like I normally would :-P It was a beautiful wedding held at Kindred Community Church in Anaheim, California.

In some ways, shooting as a guest (namely, bridal party) is actually better than being the main photographer. For instance, you are on the inside, grabbing the real emotions as things happen rather than running around trying to find the best angle. You also have the capability to shoot wide and up close at certain moments. As the main photog, you have to try to be invisible at times, forcing you to use a telephoto - and that can be sometimes limiting.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the pictures from the bridal party guest gone wild!

Be patient, lots of pictures below!

Michelle and John

These are my very good friends that recently got engaged! I had the pleasure of shooting their engagement pictures, aren't they super cute together? Thanks to both of them for climbing that wall, even though they were impaled with splinters on the way up. That's dedication right there!
