La Cañada Wedding Photography | Lara + Erik

Lara and Erik’s wedding at the La Cañada Country Club was truly perfect for those many reasons. In my book, a perfect wedding is one where the bride, groom and all those in attendance have a truly enjoyable day that is filled with laughter as well as tears of joy, and ends with a super fun dance party, which is exactly what happened with this one. I was invited to shoot this wedding alongside Jenny Smith of Alders Photography and I think it was halfway through the day that I realized how much fun Jenny and I were having capturing this day. Lara and Erik appeared to be free of stress or worry, their families clearly enjoyed each other’s company and everyone was having a really great time. Just how a wedding should be!

I met up with Erik and his guys at a nearby hotel while they were getting ready. I think Erik was nervous, but his buddies distracted him with jokes and fake mustaches to relax him a bit.

When we got to the venue, I joined Jenny in the bridal dressing room while Lara got ready. Lara was a gorgeous looking bride and paid attention to every last detail – the dress, jewelry, birdcage veil – it was all amazing!

Lara made sure her ladies were dressed to the nines, as well. I adored the necklaces she gave them as a gift. Gorgeous!

Love this shot of Lara and her dad trying to sneak a peek at Erik waiting at the altar.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding ceremony is the way the bride and groom look at each other. Almost like they’re seeing one another for the first time again.

And then there’s that “Married!” moment – that’s always a good one…
