Elegance, style, class and beauty to match!
























I've been very fortunate to meet some wonderful brides over time, and I just needed to make note of how great it was to meet Melanie and Tally, and to photograph their wedding! The wedding was so beautiful, but I was even more impressed with the bride.

The reason I say this is because I watch people while I'm at receptions, and I like to see how they interact. I am almost always within 20ft of the bride because I love to tell the story of "her" day. I know the groom is involved, but we all know whose day this is! LOL!

I admired how Melanie interacted with all of the guests at the wedding. Whether she knew them or was meeting them for the first time, she seemed to engage in genuine conversation, and expressed real gratitude to each of them for attending!

I was also impressed with how the bride and groom were involved in service activities in South America. It's really neat to actually meet people who do these types of things. Working with people who are so good looking, and seeing that they aren't afraid to get down and dirty, is rare treat! I had a wonderful time photographing this wedding, and I was able to try a few different things with my photography. It always makes my job easier to work with a very photogenic couple!

Great work Maka! I have my first wedding coming up in California and am a bit nervous...so i'm out taking as many pictures as I can before my turn to tell the story of "her" day. I'll definitely have to pic your brain sometime. Gorgeous shots!

I wish I was going to open mic, but already made commitments for this weekend. I'm still editing my pix from the concert, now that I know how to work my iMac. It will be nothing like yours, but one day I hope to produce some really amazing images. Thanks for always sharing!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I love these wedding pics. The shot of the ceremony is wonderful. My second fav is the close-up shot of her cutting the cake (what a cake!). How lucky you were to photograph such a stunning woman. You captured her beauty. Good job. :)
