Natalie and Phil had their picture-perfect wedding at the beautiful Allied Arts Guild on another one of these idillic warm summer Saturdays that we’re still having here in California.  I love photographing at this venue, with all it’s Spanish-style buildings, pathways, and classic courtyard complete with fountain.  Since both the bride and groom are working their way non-stop through medical school out of state, I had the pleasure of meeting most of Natalie’s immediate family before I ever met either one of them!  Still, it seems that we did not need much time together before the wedding for both Natalie and Phil to be completely comfortable in front of my camera.  Ok, yes, being gorgeous to start doesn’t hurt! 😉  Thank you to both of you for being so easy to work with, and I wish you and your families a lifetime of happiness!
