Mr and Mrs Dyer

Three weddings in three years for three amazing sisters.  I love how it feels like a family reunion when I get to see them.  I love how the dynamics are the same each time yet a little different.  I love getting to meet new family members and seeing their family grow.  I love documenting their love for one another.

Katherine and Justin were married on July 21 at the Los Angeles Library.  It is a stunning location and was so “them”.  Urban, yet classic and traditional.  Essentially it’s a photographers dream venue.

Kat and Justin are meant to be together.  Their love for one another is so evident and they made my job so easy.  The emotion during their first look and ceremony was so beautiful.  I found myself tearing up behind my camera several times.  And not only do they have so much love for one another, but they also have a mutual respect for each other.  Their relationship is so beautiful.

I am so going to miss working with this family next year.  I have loved, loved, loved getting to know the Grants and appreciate them always treating me like a member of their family.  But, as I said, I will come out of retirement for Janie, Anne, and Kate so make sure you call me!  ;)

For even more images please see the slideshow!

One of my favorite parts about getting ready is that Mr. Grant is always there with his girls.

You know you are a beautiful bride when a group of tourists wants a picture with you!

The newest Grant girl, Baby Elle!

This will go down as my most favorite first look ever.  Kat was crying.  Justin was crying.  I was crying!

I was trying to recreate a shot from Allison’s wedding.  I love when I try to recreate something, but it turns out even better than what I was envisioning.

Best groomsmen ever.  And Kevin won the award for the best best man ever.  And I’m not just saying that because he rolled my bag up the big hill for me ;)

I love how Justin’s mom and stepmom shared a napkin during the ceremony to wipe their tears.  It was so sweet.
