Chelsea and Nathan at La Jolla Beach

A few days before the wedding we had a quick 45 minutes to grap some sunset shots at the La Jolla Cove beach. There had been a short rain storm an hour earlier so the sky had some awesome cloud coverage! Despite the freezing weather Chelsea and Nathan were great sports being out there with the wind and cold! Here's a few favorites.

Chelsea and Nathan's Wedding Dec 27, 2008

Here's a few more I took at my daughters wedding. This first photo reminds me of the book "Twilight" with Chelsea in her Bella arch pose! Chelsea fell in love with the books when she read the series and even went to the town of Volterra for a visit while she was studying in Sienna Italy this fall. I read the series after the wedding so now I know what all the "Edward" hype was about! The sunset at the Coco Palms was gorgeous. I took these a few minutes before the ring ceremony which was supposed to be outside but with the cold and the large crowds we decided inside on the dance floor was a better choice and it worked out beautifully once we had all 250 guests seated! The reception looked magical and I'll put more shots up soon.

Well, I have been wanting to put up some of my daughters wedding photos but I've had that flu bug and was worthless for over a week! Feeling much better today. So now I want to officially thank everyone involved in helping Chelsea and Nathan's wedding turn out so beautifully! As a photographer it was difficult not to have the camera in my hands "all" the time but I did get to shoot some shots at the LA LDS Temple and some at the reception at the CoCo Palms. It was a great day and I want to thank all my photographers for assisting and getting such awesome shots. Brittany Pecore at I have known for years and has blossomed into an awesome photographer. Her site has some of the shots and I have a sample of a few of hers below. I also had Jeret shooting of He has a great eye for details and getting some of the neat angles we might overlook. Finally Rogers long time friend from Commercial Photography Bob Staeck of was there and got some great candids! All three photographers have some great shots on their sites/blogs so be sure and check them out! Chelsea and Nathan will be placing some of their favorites on their blog also so be sure and visit their site at They have a few shots up but will be putting up some of the proffesional ones soon. So enjoy a taste of a fun, hectic day and boy am I glad the planing is over!
