La Quinta Resort & Club Wedding in Palm Springs

Elona and Paul were married at the La Quinta Resort & Club (near Palm Springs) on the cusp of summer. I say it was the cusp of summer because it was only Africa hot instead of unbearably hot! But even with the heat, a good time was had by all. The wedding party was a great group of folks and I really enjoyed spending a few hours with all of them. Elona was a gracious bride and Paul was ready to get married! Here are a few select images from their wedding.

I don’t often include “details” in my blog posts, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t take detail photos. Details like these help create a sense of place. In fact, these photos become particularly important as the years pass and the landscape / locations change their shape and / or character.

Here are the girls walking from Elona’s room over to the “first look” where Paul will see Elona for the first time. I took this photo while walking backwards quickly. I’m just super lucky I didn’t stumble and fall. Not that I’m a klutz or anything.

It’s really difficult to find shade or complementary light at most Palm Springs venues, but I’m super pleased with this photo even though it was taken in super harsh direct sunlight near noon.

This is my favorite image from their wedding. Colorfully casual showcasing their happiness.

This was a technically difficult photograph to capture because of the challenging, spotty light peeking through the leaves of the tree. But given the conditions, I’m super happy with this result. I also find this photo interesting because there are TEN people with phones and camera photos in this photo (not counting mine). I guess they didn’t trust that I’ll get the shot! ;)

The mother of the groom whispers something naughty into the ear of the groom’s father. [I didn’t ask what she told him]
