Melissa and Josh’s Ojai, CA wedding~ Ojai Wedding Photographer

When talented graphic designer, and photographer Melissa Bertrand

asked me to shoot her wedding, I was excited and honored.

I have worked with Melissa for years when I used to create and sell my greeting cards.

She was such a lifesaver for my print and design!

I was so excited to meet her hubby -to-be, Josh, and capture the magic of their big day!

Here are just some of my favs of the day from beginning to end:


Before the ceremony…


The bride anxiously watching and waiting for her turn to walk down the isle


LOVE LOVE LOVE this one of the gorgeous bride…


Father of the bride


You may kiss the bride!


The 3 of us drove this golf cart around the more ruhgged parts of the property to get some great Bride and Groom shots

Guests awaiting the grand entrance…


One of the groomsmen rolling into the grand entrance :)


Photobooth fun!


The Marvelous Dessert Table!


Gangnam Style!


Once we were finished shooting, my wonderful assistant, Kristy Ellison and I

hopped in the photobooth for some silliness! :)


This was such a great wedding!

SO much fun and filled with love and gorgeous moments.

Thanks again Melissa & Josh for choosing me as your wedding photographer!

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!

And thanks to Kristy Ellison for being such an awesome assistant! xo
