What a privilege  it was to share such a special day with Katie and PJ.  They were glowing!  Just a perfect couple…  kind, considerate, so in love and fun – We managed to hit up CDM beach and a nice lunch before heading to one of my favorite venues…  Sherman Garden Library (which just so happens to be where my wife and I had our reception).  The succulent gardens, overflowing with variety just happened to be Katie and my favorite place for a few more shots.  So many memories for me, 7 yrs ago… The fish prepared by Pascal was still amazing… and the impromptu groomsmen parody had everyone rolling – “Don’t stop conceiving”.   Way too many favs’ for this post…  Again, Congratulations to a RAD couple!

2014 has been such a rad year for us… from Connecticut beach clubs to Arizona Orange Groves to San Diego wine country we’ve had some of our best weddings this year.  Soo many images to choose from, but here are a few of my personal favorites…  Can’t wait to bring in the new year with style from the back woods of Floyd VA!

We love us some Shane and Kissa!  They are fun, full of energy  and with Kissa’s infectious smile, Shane never stood a chance.  They both love volleyball so naturally it’s where they first met.   As opponents, their competitive sides got the better of them at this first chance meeting and it looked like this love was doomed to the penalty box…oh wait that’s hockey.   Volleyball, however, turned out to be their language of love and so began their story.  Kissa and Shane got married at the incredibly gorgeous Los Angeles Temple and we couldn’t be MORE THRILLED to share their images with you.333 KSSlideshow046 395 KSSlideshow059-EditBehold the infectious smile…
KSSlideshow047-EditThis could very well be the coolest wedding party we have ever worked with.  We fell instantly in love with some of the ladies incredible tattoo artwork!

Hmmm, could it have been his sheer brut superhero strength that broke it and not us after all…ummm yeah, we are going to go with that. KSSlideshow030 310 KSSlideshow038Let us take another moment to reflect on how RAD this party is!
325 252 KSSlideshow029 KSSlideshow013 The sunlight was just too perfect that day not to soak up every single second.  This is what happens when you combine a love beyond measure, two incredibly gorgeous humans and golden light so rich it would make a Swiss bank blush…seriously get a tissue!KSSlideshow058-Edit 379 413 411 426 450 432 425 448 463 456After our time at the Los Angeles Temple, we all headed over to Corona Del Mar to celebrate at the Oasis Community Center.421 KSSlideshow053We never tire of that look a new bride gives her man as she realizes he is hers and she is his forever…
549 556GOLD + CAKE = OMG!
774 We seriously died over how incredibly beautiful these rose gold rings are.  So classic and timeless it made us want to make some popcorn and watch old Audrey Hepburn movies.849 707 699 697 734 738 719 THOR’S hammer…maybe that should be a “stone” and not a football…790Could there be a cooler way to throw the garter?  WE.THINK.NOT.
830 837You know it’s a party when IRON MAN decides to show up in his helicopter.870 801 875It was such a wonderful day.  Kissa and Shane, you take our breath away.  Thank you for inviting BURNT EXPOSURE to be such an intimate part of your story and with that, let us leave you with this…

My uber talented wife, Cathy, has a MAJOR soft spot for the singles of the world (I tell her it’s because she was single for so long she had to rob the cradle by marrying a younger man).

She will huff and puff and act insulted and then agree. Haha. Miss Puma.

Truth is, she’s just awesome and got offered a writing gigg for LDS Living Magazine. She wrote a feature story on LDS midsingles called, “The Midsingles Phenomenon” and it sat at their number one spot for most popular stories for over  a week. Yea, I always tell her I’m the lucky one. She pretends to deny it and then agrees. :)

For part of her research she went on location to a huge midsingles conference in Huntington Beach and asked me to work as her photographer. She worked me like a boss…literally :) and Burnt Exposure, with the help of Photographer Emily Knudsen, captured some great shots and was published on over 6 spreads in the issue.  Awesome work Emily!  Here’s the online version, but if you were at the conference and want to see if you made the photographic “cut”, you’ll have to grab a hard copy. I would anyway, it’s really interesting and the online version is only a snapshot.

Having that said, there were at least a hundred shots you might wanna check out if you were at the conference. Free download. Here is the link.  And if you can’t figure out how to download the images, go here

And look out for Cathy’s book on LDS midsingles…we’ll keep you posted when it hits the shelves.

We took a chance on Chino Hills hoping to find some cool water features with the damn…  well no water, so we just drove around and trespassed into some cool places.  Taylor was down for anything and Chase just likes to break the law so it was a perfect combination.  Taylor and Chase have been friends since Sunday school and finally became high school sweethearts.  They have known each other for sooo long I feel like a newley-wed compared to them!   We had a blast together… can’t wait for the wedding in August!   PS… people wonder if I get any “classic” shots and the answer is of course i do, but I wanted to save some good images for them to use as invitations.




We struggled with the heel click…  good attempt though.










Sorry Chase…  This is so cheesy I had to post it! (completely against his will)
