11 Tips To Make Your Groom Feel Special

Although the wedding is for both the Bride and Groom.  Most of the attention goes towards the Bride.  The guest are "Oohing" and "Awwing" over her dress the whole evening.  Let's face it, the Groom is left out.  But, you, his Bride can make him feel special. Remember, at this point, you're the only thing that matters.  Below are 11 tips on how to make him feel special.
  1. Order a Groom’s cake, but make it really unique to him.
  2. Let him pick some of his favorite songs for the DJ or band to play at your wedding.
  3. Do something unique with the “garter” – use his favorite scent or put a special treat in the garter for him to find.
  4. Have snacks and drinks for him and the Groomsmen before the ceremony
  5. Direct questions to both the Bride and Groom – ask questions specifically of him when profiling
  6. Let him give suggestions and incorporate those ideas
  7. Pick some part of the reception or ceremony and ask him to “surprise you” with his own idea. Let him design it and put his ideas into play! You may be surprised!
  8. Send a gift to his hotel room the night before your wedding or to him the morning after his bachelor party.
  9. Let him pick the menu – the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, after all!
  10. Send his parents or his mother flowers and a card thanking them for raising such a wonderful son.
  11. Send him a sweet text before the ceremony

Tracy and Elliot are so much fun. I love the excitement and enthusiasm in their engagement photos taken by photographer, Donald Norris.   No matter what was going on in Downtown Los Angeles, Tracy and Elliot only had eyes for each other.  Can't wait until their BIG day!

Manhattan Beach Engagement Photo Session ~ Natalie + Richard

Natalie and Richard are such a lovely couple.  I'm so happy they not only found me, but booked me as well.  The photos were taken at the Manhattan Beach Creamery and The Manhattan Beach Pier. When I asked Natalie what made their day so special, this is what she had to say, "It was such a beautiful day. It had rained the day before, so the air was crisp and the ocean was so blue. Richard loves to TAKE photos, so we have very few photos of the two of us. It was fun to a have a photo-shoot of just us, so we could express our love for one another and have the photographs capture those feeling." 

Aww! So beautiful. This is one of the things I love about my job.  I can't wait to for Natalie and Richard's BIG day and to share their wedding photos with you. Teresa Curry of Teresa Marie Photography (http://www.facebook.com/teresamariephotography) thank you sharing the photos.

A Sexy, Romantic and Elegant Photo Shoot

Someone shared these photos with me and unfortunately I can't acknowledge the photographer because he/she is unknown.  Normally, I don't post photos without knowing the photographer; however, I couldn't resist sharing these photos for inspiration.  This is such a sexy, romantic and elegant photo shoot. Kudos to all those involved.
