Pomona Valley Mining Company Wedding Photography

Greetings,

Last Saturday Lawrence and I photographed a delightful couple's wedding. We took Derek and Sharon's engagement pictures at Downtown Disney a while ago.

Sharon and Derek are totally cool peeps! They volunteered to be subjects for our wedding photography workshop hosted a while back. Although that workshop had many hiccups, we were able to meet new people and build new relationships. From that wedding photography workshop, we brought along a friend - Adrienne - who helped us photograph this wedding. In any event, Sharon started her day at the Pacific Palms Resort where lots of girls rushed to get ready.

Although I took better looking pictures of the wedding bands, I liked this one the most simply because of the words written on the box: DO NOT LOSE! HAHA that cracked me up!

Derek had something on his back that needed to be brushed off...

Since we were short on time, we decided to just go straight to their reception hall at the Pomona Valley Mining Company (Los Angeles) to conduct a quick private session. This venue overlooks the 10 freeway in Pomona.

This is something new that we are trying - light painting combined with wedding photography! There is no other wedding photographer that I know of that does this, so hopefully this will start a trend! We did not quite perfect it on this first trial, but we should have it nailed down for future ones. I intend to put up a full video tutorial in the future that instructs everything that needs to be done. Thanks Adrienne for helping us with this! ZAP!
