Doral + Justin [Spanish Hills Country Club Wedding]



What's a great way to decide if you'd like to work with a photographer? Spend the day with them, at someone else's wedding! Referrals are wonderful, but nothing quite beats seeing how a photographer goes about capturing a wedding you're familiar with first hand.

Doral was the maid-of-honor at Kat & Frankie's wedding, and I was definitely flattered when Doral asked me to be a part of her very own day. I had a laugh-out-loud time reuniting with Doral and Justin at their engagement session -- and their willingness to let loose and have fun with the camera carried over to their wedding. Seriously, I love how these two can laugh! I think this had a lot to do with "kissy-kissy". Apparently, during their engagement session, I saw an opportune moment befitting of a smooch, and when I went to suggest said smooch, "kissy-kissy" tumbled out of my mouth. Hey. I don't remember this gem, but Doral and Justin sure do! Needless to say, the ghost of "kissy-kissy" continued to have awesome mileage on their wedding day, and with the good humor flowing, the smiles and positive energy were effortless.

Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo made for a picturesque ceremony and reception. If you are ever heading to Santa Barbara from L.A., indulge in a quick detour and explore the area. It's lovely and made for a very private and beautiful celebration.

DJ Pasha, turntable extraordinaire, great working with you once more! And it was a pleasure collaborating alongside videographers Kurt and Derek from New Chapter Productions to document this event.

Thank you again, Doral and Justin, for your thoughtfulness, good cheer, and trust!
