Huntington Hyatt Wedding Photos, Huntington Beach | Debbie + Paul

Gavin and I have photographed many weddings at the Huntington Hyatt , but Debbie and Paul’s wedding (at the Huntington Hyatt) is extra special to us because they are our cousins.  It was a little over 2 years ago when Debbie brought Paul over to an uncle’s house for Thanksgiving Dinner.  I remember the first thing that Gavin said was, “Hey Paul… do you play poker??”  Debbie and Paul are one of the sweetest most sincere couple I know.  These two are SO made for each other in so many ways.  They’re both smart, adventurous, caring, and most importantly madly in love with each other.  Debbie and Paul are both computer nerds (yes guys… I called you two computer nerds cause I absolutely have NO IDEA what “custom field 1” means.  I still don’t btw.  Gavin tried explaining… and gave up).  LOL  Sorry… side-track… moving on.  Debbie and Paul are both computer nerds and met each other while working on a project for the NFL.  During an executive conference is when Debbie noticed this “young kid” wearing cargo pants and an over-sized baseball cap.  Debbie thought she was gonna be stuck helping a “college intern” earn some college credits for the summer.  Little did she know that this “young kid” is THE ONE!!! So read on for our day capturing Huntington Hyatt wedding photos!

Gavin and I are so thrilled and honored to be their wedding photographers.  Gavin and I worked well together for this photo-video fusion for Debbie and Paul’s wedding.  Remember to click the play button below to view their romantic wedding video done by the one and only Gavin Holt =)

I’ve noticed that it’s a trend now for brides to wear colored shoes (usually matching with the bridesmaid’s dresses).  I LOVE it!!!

Getting into the dress (I think) is one of the most exciting parts during the preparation.  The girls had a blast laughing and giggling as they help Debbie gown up.

First Look

Debbie and Paul’s first meeting was SO cute!!  I love the first glance because it’s always so touching!!  After the initial laughs and giggles… Debbie started to tear up and cry.  It was so sweet that it made me tear up as well.

I’m always so happy when my bride and groom decides to have a first meeting.  This is always a plus because it give us plenty of time for their bride and groom portrait session.  The Huntington Hyatt has so many beautiful spots for pictures.
