palos verdes wedding photos: neighborhood church & portofino hotel – cindy & chris

They met at work and Chris said the minute he laid eyes on Cindy, he knew he wanted to marry her. Cindy knew when Chris selflessly gave up his Saturday afternoon to help her move her grandmother into assisted living. His true heart and compassion became infinitely clear that day and she knew she’d regret not giving him a chance. Three months later they were engaged.

When I shot their engagement session in downtown LA it was apparent how smitten they were with one another. They were fun-loving, very affectionate and so comfortable together which made my job a breeze.

The delight on their faces as they noticed all the details that had been so diligently planned out for months, was priceless.
