Bakersfield Wedding at River Lakes: Merissa & Josh

I had the pleasure of second shooting for the very talented Alicja over at Alicja Burnette Photography here in Bakersfield. This girl is so amazing to watch during wedding shoots. I am jealous of her unbounded energy (I need so many snacks to get me through the long days!!) and her grace and poise under pressure and forgotten timelines. I loved working with her and can't wait to get out there with her again.

Shooting a wedding from a second shooters perspective is always interesting. I can focus more on candid moments, unexpected angles and get creative with light. And this one was full of incredible moments - no one could keep their eyes off the beautiful bride. He burst into tears as she walked down the aisle and the sun set at the exact perfect moment during their First Dance. This wedding was full of gorgeous details, but more importantly - bursting with love!
