Saying Their Vows Overlooking the Pacific Ocean – Tom + Mingyung!

Destination Wedding Photographer in Bel-Air, California!

Traveling is definitely one of the perks of being a wedding photographer! I’ve photographed destination weddings in Thailand, Mexico, the Bahamas, Aruba and all over the US and I was really excited to hear that Tom + Mingyung were planning their destination wedding in California! Here are two of my favorite pictures from their wedding day!

I saw the setting sun…and I couldn’t wait to get the bride and groom on the lawn for this photo! The Pacific Ocean in the background is definitely not Chicago!

The setting sun + a silhouette = a magical wedding picture!

Wedding Photos at the Bel-Air Bay Club

All of their wedding photos were taken on the Bel-Air Bay Club property. There are gorgeous views and wonderful architecture…no need to go anywhere else! For this first photo of her wedding shoes, I wanted to incorporate the palm trees in the background-

I love all the lace on her dress! Everything looks amazing and I love finding reflections to add that ‘creative’ touch into a wedding portrait!

Tom was elsewhere getting ready- For those that don’t know…Tom has been my second photographer for the past two years! He normally handles the groom coverage- so here he was on the ‘other side’ of the lens getting photographed on his wedding day! =)
