I photographed dozens of couples at the Langham in Pasadena, and this was one of my favorite brides. And her mother was pretty awesome too. Right after the bride's mother helped the bride with her new pearl necklace, I simply asked them to lean in close to each other and I captured this meaningful portrait. After I showed this bride's mother the back of my camera and she saw this image, she was ever more trusting of my work which help me create better images throughout the day. It's always easier to photograph a wedding when the family members are on your side — particularly the parents. One of the most memorable events of this particular wedding day was the Chinese tea ceremony that was held in one of the rooms near the lobby of the Langham. In that tea ceremony, the bride and groom did honor to their immediate family members by serving them tea in a time honored tradition. Pasadena Langham Huntington is located in Pasadena, California.
