Descanso Gardens Wedding Photography | Marilyn & Wes

They always say the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach.  Well this is the love story of two food bloggers, photography, and a 50mm f1.8 that led to true love and great food.

Marilyn and Wes first met at a food tasting event as bloggers, but the stars didn’t line up just yet.  They did end up friending each other on Facebook.  A couple years later Marilyn posted an inquiry for a “nifty fifty,” or a 50mm lens.  It’s the building block of any photographer/photo enthusiast, something so basic but so important (kind of like knife cutting skills for cooking).  Well, Wesley had a spare one and was willing to give it to her. They set up a meeting to hand off the lens and eat some Korean goat stew in K-Town.  That meeting lasted 3 hours and thus began the adventure of a lifetime entangled in a love for food, a love for photography, and most importantly a love for each other.

Years later, Wesley proposed to Marilyn in the same Korean Goat Stew restaurant.

So when we shoot for a fellow photographer (Wesley still has his original Canon 1D, just like Gavin), the unconscious pressure to deliver is always there.  It feels great that we delivered!  Sooner or later, Gavin will be making them some of his famous baby back ribs, but I’m afraid those might not do as well as the wedding photography!

Also, below is a same day edit that we did for them, shown at their wedding reception for all of their guests.  A big thank you to Efrain Mejia, our videographer and editor, who was able to add more advanced editing styles into the same day edit.

And here is the short film edit, which includes the whole day:
