I was so excited when I got the opportunity to second shoot for Miranda Tate Photography, especially once I met this sweet couple! Savannah and Matt were so warm and welcoming to be around, which really shows in their photos. They had a private ceremony with family and close friends at the Los Angeles California Temple, so Miranda and I met outside and waited for them to come out. The family and wedding party joined us shortly and we all celebrated as the newlyweds came down the stairs!
There was so much love in the air when Savannah and Matt joined us outside. They are such a sweet couple with an equally as sweet family. Everyone congratulated them and we got all the usual family photos - which are some of my favorites to shoot as those are almost always the ones that get framed and passed down through families!!
After that we whisked the couple and bridal party away for portraits! Miranda found a beautiful spot with gorgeous flowers and greenery. I absolutely loved the lush background and tropical vibe the bride and groom portraits had! Southern California can be more desert tones than some realize, and while I love that and the blues of the beach it was a great change of pace! We snagged some gorgeous wide shots with the city and the temple, and then my personal favorites - the veil photos!! These photos really give off the love and adoration Savannah and Matt have for each other, and the fun they have together. I simply fall in love when I look at those!
After our portraits it was the end of our time with the newlyweds. We did not shoot the reception, but I can imagine the fun that was had! Congrats again Savannah and Matt. I wish you both nothing but happiness!!♥
