Katrin & Philip's Elegant Wedding in Long Beach, California

Katrin & Philip

Wedding in Long Beach, CAlifornia

Over Labor Day weekend, I flew out to Long Beach, CA to photograph Katrin and Philip's wedding. When I first met them a month before the wedding and they described all the elegant details, I instantly knew that this wedding was one for the books! From the vintage style of their reception hall, to Katrin's dress and bouquet, and to all the details in-between, their special day was a dream!

Katrin and Philip got ready in separate locations, keeping their first look special as Katrin walked down the aisle of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. Afterwards, we explored a bit of Long Beach to capture their bridal party and photos of just Katrin and Philip. Boy! They made my job easy because their love was so easy to photograph!  

They gathered their family and friends at the Loft on Pine, their reception venue. To end an amazing day, their reception was filled with great dancing! Their family and friends were by far one of the funniest groups to photograph! The children, their parents, their friends, and everyone in-between was on the dance floor and they sure knew how to jam out!

Congrats Katrin and Philip! Here's to many, many years of love and joy!
