I photographed Melanie and Lawrence’s engagement a while back in L.A. (View a sample engagement book from their session here.) I love how this couple just falls into place when I was taking their portraits. Their wedding day in Palo Alto also fell into place perfectly. Everything from the schedule to the weather was just perfect. All the elements of a great wedding was in play for this wedding, especially the raw emotions displayed though out the day. It was a photographer’s gold mine. Special thank you to Samuel and Quan for coming out to help me with this wedding.

This church is pretty epic. (United Methodist Church, Palo Alto)

I love this beautiful moment between Melanie and her dad. I can almost feel the love, happiness and warmth in his kiss.

Their exit dance was awesome!
