Christie & Derrick - A Palm Springs Wedding

I do not advertise myself as a ‘wedding photographer’. In fact, I only refer to myself as a photographer (& gentleman) because I do not want to constrict what I do.

I received an unexpected call from one of my oldest friends, Derrick. He was tying the knot and due to unforeseen circumstances he and his fiancée, Christie, were without a photographer only a few months before their wedding.

In the past I have turned down weddings. But for this wedding the math was just right.

Old Friend + Awesome Fiancée + Palm Springs = Yes

 

GETTING READY

The colour palette of this wedding was perfect.

THE PARTY

The dinner and reception was at the famed Movie Colony Hotel. So it was fitting that the reception felt like being in a feel good movie of the year.

THE POOL

And like any traditional wedding, everyone ended up in the pool.

Thanks for having a look. If you’re interested in me being your wedding photographer send me the details. However, I only am able to commit to a few weddings a year.
