Last weekend I headed up to the beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu to photograph Caroline and Patrick's wedding. It was about 10 million degrees out but Caroline was so chic and effortlessly cool and Patrick was so wonderfully good natured- they absolutely lived up to their hashtag... #TheMcChillens
These two roll with the punches and throughout the day they were focused on the only thing that mattered, each other.
All of the details were classically modern. Perfectly timeless.
I love finding sneaky ways to frame my brides as they get ready.
I've been dying to do a first look on a staircase. When I found this one in their hotel I just knew it would be perfect.
Caroline was calm and collected but seeing your future husband for the first time on your wedding day is like nothing else. My heart went pitter pat as some of her emotions bubbled over.
Calamigos was giving us allllll the dappled light.
This shot of Patrick watching his bride get her photo taken is so swoon worthy. That's some serious love right there.
Caroline told her bridesmaids and officiant choose whatever dress they wanted to wear. They all looked absolutely incredible but that wasn't important to her, she just wanted them by her side.
Patrick's friends absolutely cheered for him when he walked down the aisle. It was an unexpectedly beautiful and joyous moment.
Happy tears were a bit of a theme.
I absolutely adored the vases and colors of this wedding. Again, the perfect blend of classic and modern.
Find your person and hold on tight.
I'm so glad you found each other, McChillens. May your marriage be blessed with many years of love, easy laughter and giving zero f's about the small stuff.
