I was asked by a friend of mine to take some pictures for a reception she and her husband were throwing for their daughter who just had a destination wedding in Hawaii a few weeks earlier. It was held at the beautiful Summit House restaurant in Fullerton. That place is a photographer's delight- it has so many beautiful places to take pictures at. One request- please take mostly candid photos. The bride and groom have already had plenty of formal wedding photos taken in Hawaii and this reception was a casual affair for those who could not make the trip Hawaii. So I set out to capture the event as best as I could without a lot of posed formal pictures.... but I had to take a couple just for the heck of it.
Kristin and Nathan (the bride and groom) were just lovely people and allowed me the honor of a couple of posed photos. Her son, Dillon, was very fascinated with the camera and so I allowed him to take a couple of shots. This kid's got talent! And he is very handsome too.
I made myself available to the guests at the party so if they wanted a family picture of their own, I was the person to do just that. The interaction of the guests was terrific. The evening was wonderful and the families were happy to have a lasting memory of a blessed event. Congrats to Kristen and Nathan and Dillon- blessings to the new family.
