Westminster Wedding Photographer | The Villa

When I first met Hollie and Link, I knew they were going to be so much fun to work with. From their Disneyland engagement session to the crazy dance party at their wedding reception, these two were a joy to photograph. Anyone who knows Link and Hollie will agree with me when I say that these two were meant for each other. I love that you can see their personalities shining through in the images. For many people (especially those who aren’t comfortable being photographed) doing an engagement session has a HUGE impact on how comfortable you’ll be while being photographed on your wedding day. If you’re worried about looking unnatural in your wedding photos, the best thing you can do is get in front of the camera before your big day. Plus, hanging out at the engagement session gives us a chance to get to know each other so on the wedding day I’m not some random stranger with a camera who you hired 12 months ago :) Here’s a little teaser from Hollie and Link’s wedding!
You MUST check out their stellar wedding video Chriss did an awesome job on it! Also gotta give a shout out to my amazeballs 2nd photographer Steve Hoffmann!

You would never guess that they are spinning around in the middle of the street!

As you can see, Hollie & Link’s bridal party has as much enthusiasm as they did.

St. Johns Lutheran is such a beautiful church. Almost looks like it belongs in Europe.

There was a small pocket of this very flattering, golden sunlight coming through on the side walkway of The Villa.

Did I mention that Link is a male model? (jk) But he could be with a head shot like this!

The reception started to get a little wild towards the end of the night.

Whenever someone hires us to do the photo booth, we have a separate photographer who takes the photos and prints out copies for the guests. Our printer prints a nice, big 4×6 photograph in 14 seconds!
