jennifer+will: queen mary – long beach, california

// Author: Frank // 10 Comments

This was such an amazing experience for me. To be honest with you, there was two reasons why I was bit scared to shoot on the boat. First reason, the boat is haunted. But the excitement and energy I got from this wedding made me forget that it was haunted. And second, getting seasick. I have a weak tummy and before arriving, I kept thinking “oh my, motion sickness – puke puke puke”. The boat stood still…no rocking, no nothing. So I was good to go! Phew!

The day could not have been more perfect. Perfect weather, awesome venue, beautiful decor and an amazing couple. I had so much fun at this wedding that I didn’t want it to end. Thank you Jennifer and Will for flying me over from the islands to shoot your beautiful wedding. I am so honored.

    Darn!! If I had known you’d be in CA, I’d have wanted to set up a meeting with you for possibly shooting our Oahu wedding in November. I just sent you an email before I checked your blog :) Oh well. Great pictures as always.

    These are some of the most beautiful wedding photos I have ever seen. They are romantic, dramatic, just perfect!

    Frank! If we had known you were here we’d have stopped by and taken you out to eat at San Pedro. Next time!

    Wow! Amazing job. I love seeing how a different place, and particularly a different state can still make for amazing photos. Must be the photographer. :P Great work yet again.

    What a unique venue! Love the shot of the bride and groom in the tight space together.

Have your say
