Old Town Pasadena Engagement Session | Beth and Ricky

When I met Beth and Ricky on the phone, the first thing that hit me was that they knew how perfect they were for each other. High school sweethearts. Constant companions. Culminating in wedding that was not only a celebration of the future, but a celebration of every experience that brought them to this point. Beth told me that much of what she had become and experienced was because Ricky was always willing to try new things and to take risks. Ricky quickly pointed out how Beth keeps him sane and organized, and how difficult life would be without her. When we met for the first time on the day of their shoot, I saw something else there- a passion that could only be cultivated by experiencing life together with your best friend.

Lauren’s shoes! I would’ve worn those heart rhinestones to my wedding if I’d seen those 8 years ago.


Lauren’s outfit was so entirely complete and perfect

that they brought in a Steinway Grand piano. One thing I love about Timon is that he thought to pose the rings inside the piano (with the help of the piano tuner, on exactly where to safely place the rings!)

Didn’t hurt to grab a few more photographs of Lauren in the calm of the morning…

Although she started the morning out giddy, she also had some tears to shed as would be normal for a little flower girl. But we had an understanding going: I was her source of candy and stickers. Later with that understanding, she gave me this:

I will always love wedding details…

Lauren is the sweetest person. And so is her mom. Her mom handmade these cookies for their wedding reception favors:

A big part of the reception was the guests!

Below, bottom-left: Soon-to-be mother and father of the bride, Senator Sharon Runner and George Runner, whose beautiful daughter’s wedding we had the privilege of shooting just a few weeks later. A neat tidbit about them is that they’re the first husband and wife in California history who served in state legislature at the same time!:)

The night was about over, when all of a sudden this gentleman decided it was time:

Enough partying…one last snapshot of the happily married bride and groom!

Tony M. Kinkela - Love the elegance and class of Lauren and Drew’s wedding photos. My favorite photos: Lauren looking out the window, Lauren and her mom, the wedding reception favors and of course, the kiss. Amazing job!

Eric - Hey Liz & Timon,

This is a great set. I found it especially nice since right before it I looked at some photos from another photographer that people were raving about but found to be pretty unremarkable other than a cool setting. I like your set because it is modern and captures great moments but also has an air of elegance and classic images that will still look great years from now even as trends change.
