A Wedding For Two

I am so excited about this post for Carey and Brian. Carey called me earlier this year and told me all about how she and Brian wanted to have a private wedding without any guests. We have done a few private weddings over the years which are quite different than elopements in that a full wedding is being produced with the absence of an audience. They are so much fun to shoot! There is another private wedding on this site that Jen and I did with Lisa and Mindy in Mexico (it's Kara and Ray's wedding to the right). Lisa did Carey and Brian's wedding here as well. Lisa and I just love the idea of private weddings and have decided we want to do more of them in the near future (Anyone out there who is considering this... if you are up for Ireland, South Africa, Morocco, Italy, Argentina, Japan or anywhere else you think is really cool... don't hesitate to call) So Lisa Vorce + team, Mindy Rice, Living Cinema, JP Reynolds, Sweet and Saucy, and Lewis Barker made this wedding for two a dream. As usual, they created a really romantic and magical setting up at the Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse (one of my favorite properties in the world). Daniel Rautmann was brought in to prepare two separate menus. One for Carey and one for Brian. Daniel is a great friend of ours and you HAVE NOT lived until you have been around his kitchen! He is an unbelievable talent. The night sky up at this property is amazing and I thought that one of the coolest things Lisa and Mindy did with this event was to bring in an old 60's pickup truck loaded with pillows and blankets and a basket of treats so Carey and Brian could relax under the stars when the day was over. Not only was this Carey and Brian's wedding but also Brian's birthday. He said a wife was the best present he could ever ask for! The couple will have a fun party with their friends and family later but their wedding day was all theirs. After we were done shooting Jen and I looked at each and remarked that we both thought we have the greatest job on earth. Every wedding is different and unique in it's own special way. We have the most incredible clients and I know I say this all the time but we really are so lucky!

Absolutely stunning. What an honor to be able to capture such an intimate wedding. I love the color palate and the light -- which you photographed gorgeously! My favorites are the portraits because you can feel the love from this couple. Great work!

Beautiful! This is the second time I've looked at this post. Such a beautiful couple-they are so timelessly elegant, like 50s movie stars. Your captures are insanely pretty. Such amazing talent Aaron, truly.

I love everything about this wedding. The dress, hairpiece, textures, and intimacy is so romantic and well captured.

Your images are absolutely stunning. It is obvious that you really enjoy and take pride in what you do. As someone who just started on the path of photography a year ago, I have much room for improvement and find it easy to get discouraged. It is images like these that keep me inspired and pushing forward. Thank you for sharing your work.
