It was just over a year and a half ago that I first met Marisa. She was doing the hair and makeup for one of my favorite brides. My last wedding before having Brayden. Little did I know that just a year and a half later Marisa would now be a friend and my fabulous hair dresser. I didn’t meet Jaime until their engagement session. I had heard a lot about him from friends and friends of friends and he didn’t disappoint. Not only is he one of the nicest grooms I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with he is also one of the funniest AND most stylish.
My favorite thing about Marisa and Jaime is not how gorgeous they are or how nice and caring they are, but it’s how they make each other light up when they are around each other. Jaime can get Marisa to smile like no one else. Marisa can get Jaime to laugh like no one else. Not only are they totally and completely in love, but they love to be together. They’ve been together since high school and you can tell. They are so comfortable around each other. It’s an awesome thing to get to photograph a couple like that.
Marisa and Jaime, thank you for choosing me to capture your wedding day! I had so much fun with you two! I hope you are having the most amazing time in Italy together! Can’t wait to hear all about it. Here’s your slideshow!
Marisa and Jaime were married at the Mission Inn in Riverside. This place was photographer heaven!
I loved the sixpence in Marisa’s shoe
Lucky Marisa had all of her very talented friends to make her even more gorgeous
And one of my very talented friends, Jenny B, did the flowers
This mirror was Marisa’s grandmother’s. Several women in her family have gotten ready on their wedding day in front of it.
Marisa’s very talented mom made her handkerchief from Marisa’s baby bonnet
Looks like we’re in Europe, right? Nope. We’re in good ‘ol Riverside
Marisa told me that Jaime’s wedding outfit cost more than her dress so I was excited to capture all of the details
The knife kind of scared me a little. But, it’s not their gang. Just their skateboarding gang
These guys have been BFF since elementary school
The ceremony was beautiful and wonderful and very short! Short and sweet and to the point
Yep. We’re still in Riverside.
Another great father daughter dance!
And a big special thank you to one of my most favorite brides ever, Ashley, for bringing us together
