MARIKO + JOHN married at one of my favorite hotels, no, my favorite hotel downtown, the Omni’s La Mansion. Mariko and John have amazing chemistry and it was really delightful to see and capture all this through my lens.  I love photographing the emotion of a couples day and this is what drives me as a photographer in my work. The hardest part is anticipating and seeing the moment, getting into position and just waiting for everything to line up.

This year has been amazing so far and I’ve been really fortunate to photograph some amazing locations. Not only that, but couples like Mariko and John have just been awesome.

Below are a few of my favorites from last Saturday. All shot with a Nikon D3, a D700, a 14-24 f2.8, 35mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4.
