California Boho Canyon Wedding- Lori and Jon

These two might be some of my favorite humans ever and I am so fortunate to call these two my friends.
We met almost two years ago over Instagram and we hiked a canyon together and I took some couples photos of them even before they were actually engaged!

When Jon dropped on one knee to ask Lori to marry him, there were candles and tears of joy and happiness.
Less than a year later, this two tied the knot in one of the most stunning locations I have ever been to, a gorgeous California Canyon and Lori’s boho inspired wedding was every photographers dream, especially mine 🙂


Lori got ready in her parent’s home in Irvine, CA and Sal and I arrived early to take a few getting ready photos of her and her bridesmaids and of course of her stunning dress:

There was such a fun atmosphere at Lori’s house, Lori is the middle child of 7, so her bridesmaids consisted entirely of her sisters and sister- in laws. There was so much joy and anticipation palpable that morning.

And can we please talk about how cute the matching robes were!

And yes, there was Champagne involved, it’s always so fun to document all the joy and excitement. 🙂
A few minutes later I snapped a few of Lori and her gorgeous mom in their front yard. It’s always such an emotional moment when the mom helps the bride with her dress. maybe it’s just me, since mine never got to do that! And then some of Lori as she put on her dress. Isn’t she stunning? And so are her bridesmaids:


After these, we headed over to the ceremony site where Lori and Jon had their first look. If you know me, you know how much I love first looks. It gives the couple time to share some very special moments alone with each other before the joyful mingle of their day.

And off they were for their ceremony. The most gorgeous setting of all and this stunning location
