what's better than a fashion shoot?
a wedding with a bride and groom that look like models.
chris was looking sharp and traci looked simply stunning for their wedding at brunswick studio in los angeles.
traci and her beautiful bridesmaids had super sweet button bouquets. traci added sleek black stuart weitzman's and topped off her look with an awesome feather piece, with a big white button, for her hair. all the guys tied in perfectly with their button boutonnières.
the standard hotel in downtown l.a. was the perfect swanky place for everyone to get ready. very cool hotel. we would have taken more shots at the standard but they don't allow photos there. security was on us like white on a wedding dress. while waiting for everyone to put on their finishing touches i was told that one of chris' groomsmen is currently living in hawaii. that's all it took for us to start talking about the best places for ono food on oahu. rainbow drive-in plate lunch, pancakes with macadamia nut sauce at boots and kimos, stortos sandwiches, kua aina burger, the north shore shrimp trucks, hot malasadas at leonard's bakery, huli huli chicken, and shave ice at tropical rush. stopping now. i'm getting hungry again.
once everyone was ready we hit the streets of l.a. for some awesome urbanity, then we were off to the brunswick studio for chris and traci's intimate wedding and reception. the decor was kitchy cool. the ceremony backdrop was by flowers on mars. traci did an amazing job making the centerpieces and she put a a paper fish or lamb on every place setting to let the caterers at just chic events know what the guest chose for dinner. some of the lambs got into the wine and ended up in some interesting places. see below.
thanks to chris austin for having me come out on this amazing wedding. his lovely wife erinn sat this one out at home on prego break. glad i could help. congrats you two!
i LOVE when brides and grooms do their "first look" before the ceremony. we always get great emotions to capture and the couple gets a few minutes to enjoy each other alone on their wedding day. win win ftw!
check traci, kickin some serious sass.
we need to hear what you think about this shot (number 19). kim and i have a tiny difference of opinion.
good thing this old service elevator didn't have a smoke detector. chris and traci were en fuego.
