Muckenthaler Wedding Photography - Quyen and Jon

recently, we were fortunate enough to photograph quyen & jon's vintage inspired wedding at the muckenthaler mansion in fullerton. and not only that, but jen over at green wedding shoes blessed all of us, by featuring quyen and jon's story first. so, once you are done perusing the images here, make sure to check out more of the details on the green wedding shoes blog here.

meshing two distinct cultures & two distinct eras seemed to flow effortlessly from every detail. quyen brought the traditions from vietnamese culture and her roots from the far east, whilst jon himself, down to the tie clip & ray bans, personified all that is Americana. and, as the guests arrived at the muck, it felt as if we were all taken out of the hustle of our 21st century lives, to the jive of the early part of the 20th century.

and, amidst everything... the details, the style, the attire... were two young lovers, so ready to take on life together. quyen and jon, carlie & i love you. we really do. and i pray the photographs we have to offer from your wedding day, serve as a timeless memento to the love that will so apparently fill your household as the two of you grow old together.


i absolutely love when couples incorporate their family history, by sharing wedding photos from years gone by... and i pinch myself to think that the photographs i take today, might very possibly outlive me. humbling.
the bride. the groom. and their killer florals from honey and poppies.
p.s. do yourself a favor and check out tiffany's blog. she rocked out quyen's make-up, which is so important for photos.


as a professional wedding photographer, how could i not be ecstatic when i saw old windows like this one, so artfully integrated at the altar.

the newlyweds.
this one's a throwback to their engagement shoot earlier this year. only this time, jon traded out his 12 gauge for a bride's bouquet.

every table was marked by one of these letter cards, offered by martha stewart.

  12. "With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it's just not acting. It's lying。

  13. A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.
