Wedding: Marisa + Mason | Orange County Wedding Photographer | Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park | Manya Photography

I met Marisa years ago while working at the Miss LA Chintatown Pagent. She was on the royal court as a princess and I was working on beauty services. She is such a wonderful women and when I found out she was getting married I was super excited for her. Marisa & Mason met back in college at a gathering. They have some great stories to tell. They are so made for each other, both being so sweet! They got married in Hawaii but live here in Southern California. When they got back I connected with them to do a wedding portrait shoot. They were both so much fun to shoot and now they have tropical photos and rustic photos for their wedding! Enjoy the photos!

Wedding: John + Kathryn | Orange County Wedding Photographer | Manya Photography

John & Kathryn had a lovely wedding. It’s started out with a first look at the ceremony site, St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church in Dana Point, CA. It was so sweet to watch them see each other for the first time all decked out in their wedding attire. After the first look, it was time for the ceremony. It was filled with smiles and tears of joy. You can really see how much love they have for each other. After the ceremony, we all headed off to the reception location which was the beautiful Marbella Country Club in San Juan Capistrano. The rest of the afternoon was filled with photos, eating yummy food, fun slideshows, and lots of amazing dancing that lasted into the late night. It was a wonderful day filled with much love and it was a joy for all to be a part of.

He lives in California and she lived in Armenia. They met in Australia at a wedding and here they are together! Jacob & Anna got married in Monterey Park, CA. They are Russian (like me) so they had a Russian ceremony. There are no photos taken during the ceremony but I assure you it was beautiful! It was a wonderful day of smiles, laughter and love!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed making them!

San Clemente Wedding: Kevin + Lauren | Orange County Wedding Photographer

Kevin & Lauren are an awesome couple! Their wedding was at Rancho San Clemente Tennis & Fitness Club. It was a beautiful day with clear blue skies and a cool breeze. Lauren & Kevin’s first look was so sweet. When Lauren tapped on Kevin’s shoulder and he turned to look at her, the look on his face was awesome! His reaction as you can see in the photos below was that he was in aw of how beautiful Lauren looked. I truly love first looks because of the special moments the bride & groom get to have together before everything starts. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a blast. The speeches were filled with so much love, tears of joy and laughter, the dancing was amazing and the garter toss was very memorable. Once Kevin got the garter off Lauren’s leg he had it on his finger and was swirling it. Well the garter came off his finger and there was a mad dash for the men to get it. People were knocked over and coffee was spilled. In the end the best man is who won the garter! It was a fabulous night!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did creating them!

Below I have made a special slideshow if you would like to see more great moments from Kevin & Lauren’s wedding.
