Palmer House wedding: Courtney & Erik

Winter weddings.  They are not very popular.  But for some reason, I have shot 4 events in December and January. 

I was extremely excited to shoot my first wedding event at the Palmer House.  While I have shot corporate events and many brides preparing for their day at the hotel, I have never shot a ceremony and reception in that space.  I am looking forward to working with the hotel more!  In fact, I have a 3-day Hindu wedding this coming May at the Palmer House.  Warmer weather combined with the Palmer House will be welcomed in my book.  

I walked into the room where Courtney was getting her makeup done.  Well, actually … she was supposed to begin makeup when I arrived, but she just completed both hair AND makeup.  Arg.  Thanks, Courtney!  Now what?

The Peninsula Hotel wedding: Lauren and Todd

Lauren wrote me in February of 2009 inquiring about my services for her wedding in November.

I quickly wrote her back, excited about the possibility to shoot at The Peninsula.  She responded the next day and said, "Thank you so much for the quick response. All the info you sent me was very helpful. Your work is quite fabulous and I am very much interested in booking you for my wedding."

I truly enjoy simple hirings.  No consultation.  No meeting.  In fact, I didn't ever meet the bride and groom until their wedding day.

Slightly nervous, of course, I set my fears aside and tapped into my knowledge database and started photographing.  Holy Name Cathedral and The Peninsula.  Two fantastic spots to shoot with backdrops to die for.

The bride and groom met in college 4 years ago.  Lauren says she knew he was the one even before they started dating.  She is definitely a gal with determination, and a strong sense of what she wants.  And, at the same time, a very easy-going young lady to boot.
