Arboretum Bridal Shoot: Ryan and Nicole

I've found my new favorite prop for gorgeous and really fun wedding photos: bubbles! I spent the day with Ryan and Nicole at the LA Arboretum playing with bubbles and goofing around. Not only was it so much fun, but the photos came out so great!


The second we brought out the bubbles, kids in the park with their families flocked over. This little girl was jumping to pop the bubbles behind us.

After the bubbles, we switched to playing around with pinwheels. I'm pretty sure all of us "adults" are just kids in grown-up bodies.

Nicole's gorgeous blush dress is by Adrianna Papell.


This homemade bouquet was made up of succulents, roses, and an arrangement of broad leaves and other red flowers. I loved how the whole look came together with the silver headpiece of jewels and pearls.

The Arboretum is definitely a favorite photo spot of mine. Between the stunning waterfall, huge ponds, and the rose garden, it's got just about every gorgeous photo spot you could imagine. 

These two had such great chemistry. They couldn't help but smile around each other.

Spring at the Arboretum means lots of colorful blooms. The purple tree in the shot above was so vibrant that standing under it gave the light a purple hue.
