St Regis Monarch Beach Wedding by KLK Photography

I couldn’t help but share just a few teasers from this past weekend at one of my absolute favorite venues in southern California, St Regis Monarch Beach! Lindsay & Ion were hitched on the grand lawn just before sunset and we are so lucky to have had such an incredible team come together to make this beautiful bride super happy!

To top it off, Lindsay’s dress was made by one of my favorite exclusive dress designers, Amy Michelson!

Perfectly paired peonies & a handsome chap with a bow tie completed the look…

KLK Photography | Southern California Wedding Photographer

This couple had one special request that brought me outside of my comfort zone – to shoot film.

But this challenge gave me a gift I will forever be thankful for.

I stopped shooting film when I moved to California and the digital age began almost 10 years ago…

I love digital – instant gratification, don’t we all?

Though I love digital and still get butterflies in my stomach and tears in my eyes often while photographing couples,

 there was just something different when I picked up my film camera.

With the first frame, I could feel it, a small spark had lit back up inside me…

it almost brings tears to my eyes, because it was a gift I would have otherwise forgotten.

A gift of trust, uncertainty, anticipation, hope.

All of this in a single frame…

I realized this is what my clients feel when they hire me.

The trust they put in me makes me so determined to do the best job possible,

to keep striving to become a better photographer with every photo I take.

Thank you lovebirds.
