Wedding: Heather & Josh (Part 1)

I am SO excited to finally post & share these photos! I loved capturing Heather & Josh's wedding. They are such a sweet, adorable couple and their families were just as sweet and adorable... they welcomed me into their lives, I felt like part of the family by the end of the day. Thank you!      
This was my first wedding that I have ever shot. Heather & Josh knew this and trusted me anyways... to capture the most important day of their lives! It was a blessing! Heather & Josh... Thank you for trusting me and giving me this opportunity, I hope you enjoy all the photos.

I cannot go any further with out saying a special and huge THANK YOU to my husband, Ryan, not only was he ever so patient with me preparing for this day, but he was my second shooter! Thank you for all your help and encouragement. I couldn't have done it with out you! I love you!

Now with out any more delay... Heather & Josh's Wedding... Part 1:
We started the day at the Hilton Garden Inn in Valencia, CA, where everyone was getting ready...

Heather wore a bohemian veil, which looked amazing on her...

Heather, you are Beautiful, my dear...

 Ryan was with the guys as they got ready...

 Josh writing out his vows...Yes it says.. "Surfing Adventures" :) Oooh... So Adorable!

Heather & Josh chose to do a First Look, for those of you who do not know what that is... they opted to see each other for the first time before the ceremony. Now a days a lot of couples are deciding to do this.
It allows the bride and groom more alone time together and more time for formal portraits.

Heather & Josh got married at Faith Community Church in Newhall, CA...
The church had this charming spot out back which was perfect for the First Look...

I LOVE the look on Josh's face!

 I LOVED the lighting, it was so romantic... 

These are a few of my favorite shots from the day...

Heather made these adorable signs.

You both are Gorgeous by the way! :) 

The Bridal Party was wonderful to work with... Thank you guys for being so warm & friendly! :)
