Ambassador Campus Pasadena Wedding Photography | Denise & Dennis

I’ve been super excited about shooting Denise and Dennis’s (yea… I know… can’t forget their names) wedding ever since they’ve decided to go with me as their Pasadena Ambassador wedding photographer.  This is the very first time that I am leading my own wedding!!! YAY!!!  As I was driving to their BEAUTIFUL wedding location, Pasadena Ambassador Mansion and Gardens, I felt butterflies in my stomach.  These weren’t nervous butterflies, but instead, they were anxious butterflies eagerly waiting to capture timeless moments.  I had so many ideas that I wanted to try with Denise and Dennis!  These two are totally rad!! They are such a charming, down-to-earth and laid-back couple.  This made my first experience such a memorable and pleasant experience doing a wedding at the Ambassador Mansion in Pasadena.

Denise’s wedding dress is an exquisite vintage-looking dress.  It’s very flowing and has a LOTS of layers.  It was kinda funny photographing Denise getting into her dress because she was caught in between the layers and had tough time “diving into” her dress.

And here she is…

Let’s now meet our strapping groom, Dennis at the alter.  Dennis works for the television industry and is a natural in front of the camera.  Dennis is a goofy yet sincere kinda guy that is not afraid to show his emotions.

This is one of my favorite pictures.  The laugh on Denise’s face is just so geniune and adds so much life to the picture.

After the ceremony, we had lots of time to wander around the garden for pictures.  Here are some of my personal favorites.

I really like this candid picture of Denise as she’s walking away.  There’s something about it that is so serene.

The spiral stairs in this big mansion is sooooo cool!  I had to put my couple in the middle for a photo.

Denise told me that this building is what sold her on the location…

At the reception, the toasts constantly made Denise and Dennis giggle and laugh.

The dance floor was filled with family and friends celebrating the joyous union of Denise and Dennis!  I was just thinking… remember Bennifer or Branglina???  How would we do a word name for Denise and Dennis???  Would it be D-E-N-N-I-S-E???  =)

    Wow, wow, wow. Judy, you are PHENOMENAL! We are so happy with how you captured our wedding day.
    Dennis: The angles and depth you captured were fantastic.
    Denise: I love it all! The emotion of the ceremony, the energy of the dancing, all amazing.
    Thank you! (p.s. Someone wrote us a check made out to “Dennise”, and I wonder if they did that so that either one of us could cash it.) =)

    Oh my gosh you did such an amazing job Judy! I can hardly wait for you to photograph my wedding in June! You have such and eye for romance and magic… I wish you could follow me around and take pictures every day, like I only want to see life through your photographs! There is nothing (other than marrying the man I love!) about my wedding that I am more excited about! By the way, is it June yet?
