Vanessa and Neto’s Southern California wedding

By Monique

I just love the word of mouth thing – brides who show their friends our work, and then their friends end up hiring us for their weddings too! This was the case with Vanessa and Neto. Vanessa is a friend of one of my favorite Tahoe brides Viktoriya. So I was really excited to fly down to Southern California in May to do their wedding at the Pacific Palms Resort in Industry Hills. It was a nice change from our Tahoe “Spring” weather. SoCal was warm and balmy, with LOTS of Palm trees, and a chance to reconnect with Viktoriya too. Vanessa and Neto were so great to work with, very easy going and naturals at not noticing the camera. We had a nice chunk of time before the ceremony to walk around the property for their portrait session, offering a lot of creative backgrounds both inside the Resort and around the grounds.
