This was my first west coast, California wedding from a while back, but I will be posting a few more CA weddings in this next series. The hotel was at the Fairmont in Newport Beach, followed by the ceremony at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSU. The reception was also a very nice outdoor location at Park Prive in Costa Mesa. Needless to say, it’s extremely flattering for a couple to fly me 3,000 miles to be part of their wedding. The Japanese Garden is beautiful yet a challenge to shoot as well, as there are very limited locations a photographer can maneuver around – make sure you have at least a 70-200mm!
