Real Wedding: Heather + Barry in Laguna Beach

I’ve been loving looking through the One Love Photo Blog the past two days. I saw this fabulous wedding that Heather and Jon (the husband and wife team behind One Love Photo) photographed in Laguna Beach a few months ago and she was kind enough to let me feature it for you guys today. I really love Heather’s style – her photos have a vintage, timeless look, but yet modern also. The bride – also named Heather – used yellow as her main color, with blue satin shoes! Which if you saw my post yesterday, you know I’ve been in a yellow state of mind! Oh, and her dress is GORGEOUS! Love it!

Heather shared this story about how Heather + Barry choose her to photograph their wedding and I thought it was so perfect. It’s really important to find a photographer that fits your style, and they did that.

Last year heather and barry traveled to ireland together. all along barry had a master plan involving one secret ring. he knew the exact spot when the ring would come out of his pocket. a beautiful green lookout point. the question was popped. the answer was yes. ireland will never be the same for these two! heather had brought along a plastic diana camera to freeze her own visions of ireland. she was hoping for lots of blur, soft muted tones and timeless images. while looking through her album from their trip this weekend, it was clear to me that her vision had been captured perfectly.

wanting a similar look for her wedding photos, she began a search for the perfect photographer. she wanted someone who shoots film and uses toy cameras, and who experiments with different processes. she was searching for another artist. the stars must have been aligned, because somehow she stumbled upon my website. even more perfect was the fact that shortly after, we were able to meet in person. when heather first contacted me, i was headed down to los angeles with jon for a pottery show. at our meeting we all clicked and it felt like a perfect match. as the big orange sun went down on their wedding day, we giggled and made beautiful photographs together! jon felt confident using his big papa lens. he knew the style that these two wanted was similar to the “through the viewfinder” look created with his lens.

And now – the fabulous photos! Enjoy and congrats to Heather + Barry!

  1. I love seeing great shots of bridesmaids rocking the JCrew Lydia dresses, bc those are our dresses!

    The bride’s dress here is to die for, btw. Great find.

  2. amazing. i have total wedding envy. i agree, j.crew dresses are always fun to see outside of the website. I adore One Love Photo. Thanks for reminding me that I need to visit her site again and again. I LOVE (in no particular order) her shoes, those groomsmen, the blue + yellow color combo and that green bedroom door. Beautiful!

  3. I’ve been dreaming of this moment,my wedding. One day that will live in my memory as something truly magical, a day so perfect that time will seem to stand still like yours.
