There’s an ongoing joke among wedding vendors, which is that we don’t get repeat business… well, I had shot Russell’s first wedding back in 2007. We became friends after that and he picked up photography as a hobby. I saw him as he transformed himself after his marriage failed into a different person, but still the same guy with the same energy. And after that transformation he met the girl that really matched who he was and was going to be. Heather is his real match.
They chose the Richard Nixon Presidential Library as their wedding ceremony and reception location. I LOVE the style and look of the ballroom, the long water fountain leading into the garden, and also where else do you get to take pictures with a friggin’ helicopter!
