A Tidal Wave of Love | Dionne & Adrian’s Amazing Wedding

Here are a few of my favorite {random top 32} images from their amazing Riverside wedding day. It was 99 degrees in Riverside, {it wasn’t an ugly hot.  just rather warm.} ….. But it didn’t phase anyone.  We drank plenty of fluids and had an amazing time.  Dionne’s and Adrian’s family are …. to put it bluntly …. are freak’n amazing people.  Both families collaborated big time to make their wedding day a smashing success.  I was moved and still am moved by the love that Dionne and Adrian share.  Rarely do I witness such love.  And rarer still do I witness both the bride’s and groom’s families working together so splendidly in harmony, selflessly and so hard for their kin.

They were referred to me by Emily and Nick Huges {who’s wedding I photographed in Newport Beach, aboard a yacht 8 years ago} and , by way of Earl and Lisa Averalo who’s super cool San Bernadino wedding I photographed 3 years ago.  Below….just after they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
I love the movement in these bride’s maids dresses.
Below Adrian’s dad watching during their sand ceremony. Dionne had a very cool pair of purple custom Made Converse high tops embroidered with their initials and wedding dates.  Rock on Dionne!j I always like trying something new when shooting.  There was a little patch of sunlight coming through the trees.  Normally I’d shy away from it.  But it think it is a nice happy planned accident.  Right place right time. Laughter during toasts. Dionne, spicing it up a bit with a feather hair piece and a few touchups before we head out for a sunset photo-shoot. Sunset in the Citrus Groves of Riverside’s California Citrus State Historical Park.  This is the pink elephant.  Not many citrus groves left in Southern California.  Let alone anywhere near Orange County.

I asked Dionne and Adrian to show me how they like touch or hold each other.  When they touch each others face like this it symbolfies their love for each other. Adrian is a Navy photojournalist stationed in Japan.  A few days after their wedding Dionne, with her 3 red suitcases, and her new husband borded a plane together and moved to Japan, where they will live for at least the next 3 years.


Below is a gallery of their wedding album that I just created for them.  Enjoy!

    ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and BREATHTAKING PICTURES! You captured so many of those little moments that take your breath away, from the little flower girl from the back, to the ring bearer looking away and the photo of Dionne seeing Adrian for the first time on their wedding day…you are amazing! I needed a tissue to look at them all!ReplyCancel

    Keley those photos are stunning. Especially the ones in black and white. Many people do not understand that to take a quality black and white photograph takes a lot of skill by the photographer. My dad went to college and got his degree in fine arts and majored in photography. In fact if you asked him, he preferred shooting in black and white just because of all the different filters you could utilize and how you could do different things. I think the black and white photos are stunning. They convey so much more depth and feeling that you can feel the love that these two people have for one another. Don’t get me wrong the color photo’s are nice but for someone who knows a bit about black and white photography they are just simply stunning. They truly are. My best wishes to the bride and groom.ReplyCancel
