The True Wedding Crasher

Okay so i think its safe to say that most of us have sen or heard about the move Wedding Crashers
Today I'd like ot show you how wrong they really were about wedding crashing. Its not that it doens't happen but they totally had the wrong guys doing it. Don't get me wrong Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn were funny but just can not compare to the power of the true wedding crasher. This man, came in and had all of the ladies attention before even looking at them. It's like they all had a radar trying to find him. No matter what time it was during the wedding there was almost always someone looking at him for how handsome...and cute... he was. This guy was one of the few things that could compete with the bride for attention on her big day.
Here we have this guy, and his well,.... dad (You'd think this might be a buzz kill but not for him).

 This is Austin getting warmed up for the dance floor.


The Party has BEGUN! Austin Dancing the night away

and He got the girl....

I dont' need to say any more, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson you guys are funny, but don't stand against the power of the 2 year old. Austin you rock!

Sarah and Brandon

Sarah and Brandon Richter got married at the Links at Summerly in Lake Elsinoire. This was an amazing wedding that i got to expeirence with many friends and family. I was able to go and capture priceless expressions on my family members. These photos can not be described with words, they are too precious to me. I loved being able to shoot this wedding for my amazing cousin Sarah.
Some of the funnest times were watching Katie and Jeff's little boy Austin rock the dance floor. Definitely going ot be the party kid. He started dancing on the dance floor and slowly his shirt got unbuttoned, then the tie came off and finally the shirt came off. In no time at all Austin was dancing on the dance floor with out his shirt on. Talk about the life of the party.

the 50mm challenge

So I decided to see if i could shoot an entire wedding with one lens. The 50mm f/1.8
beautiful lens that i love to use! I wanted to know if it was possible to get through an entire wedding using it. I am proud to say that for about 90% of the wedding i was able to use only that lens and test it out. Al though I have had this lens for over a year I haven't been able to take it on a test like this wedding. I am so in love with this lens and look forward to buying the 50mm f/1.4 soon. Okay for all of you non photographers I look forward to buying a better version of this lens. I was impressed with its optics and lack of flare with harsh lighting from the sun and flash units. Here are my favorite images from my 50mm challenge with Rachael and David at the Corona Yacht Club in Coachella.
I was able to capture this little mans steps on camera. He just started to walk days before the wedding and i was the one honored enough to capture it all

 I should remain this picture to the palm tree challenge. I was literally pushing a palm tree out of my way while trying to balance a flash and my camera. Tried not to be too distracted by the fact that i had palm tree branches stabbing me in the back of my neck. fun shot but wasn't the easiest to take.

Lastly the intimacy this couple showed towards each other was amazing! I loved how each of them showed intense love for each other through out this day. The look on each other's faces as they looked into each other's eyes was beyond words. Nothing could describe a love like this.
This was an amazing opportunity to share their wedding day
