Wedding at Brentwood Country Club

Last month I had the honor to work once again as a second shooter for my good friend Gayla from Gayla Elizabeth Photography.  For those who don’t know Gayla, she is not only a talented photographer, but an amazing person with a big heart.  In fact, she is an important reason for the smooth start of my photography career.  It was shortly after we first met that I booked my first wedding. Although I knew all the techniques and procedures, I was still nervous about running into unexpected hitches, so I asked Gayla to shoot with me. She accepted without hesitation even though she was an experienced pro and I was just a beginner.  On the day of the event, she guided me through the whole day by giving me tips on scouting locations, tackling timing and logistics, and interacting with clients and keeping them happy. Since then, we have shot a few more weddings for each other, and each has been a learning experience for me.  I will always be grateful for what Gayla had done for me and treasure our friendship.

Gayla, thank you for everything! Enjoy spending time with your family in Hawaii!  :-)

Here are a few of my favorite images from the most recent event.  Love how happy and excited our bride was:

The bride wanted a shot of both of them under the veil.  I think it turned out beautifully.
