Wedding weekend madness, that is what the weekend of July 12th was for me. I was hired to shoot two weddings back to back, and all I could think was how fun and exciting shooting a wedding would be, especially with my photographer partner in crime, my good friend
. The first wedding from this weekend of madness was Amy and Mike's.
Mr.Ochs, Mike, was my former high school history teacher. Being out of high school for four years now, I never thought that a teacher would remember who I was, let alone hire me for my photography services, so when I got an email from Mike I was beyond excited. Talking to Mike I found out that he was getting married a day before I was hired to shoot my first wedding (which you will see on the blog soon) and I quickly realized how lucky I would be to have a wedding weekend! Not having a portfolio to show, Mike and Amy took a chance on hiring me, and I would personally like to thank them time and time again for taking a chance and letting a girl pursue her photography dreams!
Mike and Amy are very unique, fun-loving, kind people, who are very well loved by their families and friends. Mike and Amy wanted to spend their wedding day fully wrapped up with their friend and families, and that is just what they did! Their wedding took place at Calamigos Ranch, in Malibu, CA. There was much laughter, dancing, drinking, and smiling at the Ochs' wedding. The day and night was nothing short of amazing. I am so thankful to be apart of such a beautiful occasion that once again showed me that true love is real. I again have to say THANK YOU Mike and Amy for allowing me, to pursue my dreams and to encourage me to do what I love. Mike I have to say although it has been years since you have taught me anything (in a classroom), I do have to say that I once again learned so much from you and this time about you, and I would like to wish you and Amy all the happiness in the world. Now I will let the photos speak for themselves, enjoy! -S
