11 years.

Last week I shot Anita and Steven's wedding up in Malibu at Calamigos Ranch.  They've been together for 11 years... since they were in high school.  That's 2 years longer than my wife and I have been together and we've been married for 7 and a half.  The whole day they were so relaxed and just a ton of fun to be around. I had such a great time and felt like family the whole time. They saw each other before the ceremony so we had all kinds of time with the couple alone and with their family and friends. I never push couples into doing that but sometimes it makes the day go a little smoother. Here are some images from the day.

























I love this moment while they're watching the slideshow her brother made for them.
I was trying out a new lighting technique at the reception, I really like it.  Its a little more dramatic than my usual way.  Both have their place but its fun to play around.

And a sweet ring shot to finish it up.

I know you don't normally answer the "how'd you do that?" questions, so for now I will imagine that you got that aerial shot of the reception table while suspended from a harness hanging from the rafters. Kind of like that scene from the first Mission Impossible when Tom Cruise breaks into the CIA.

I agree with the idea David has about your table top shot from above! you must be really tall. I love your sweet ring shot and the bride in front of the green door!
