Rose in the Thorns on Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island

www.jasonlanierweddingphotography.com

This image was taken at my wedding for Opie and Mandy on Jekyll Island, Georgia.  Driftwood Beach has a ton of huge, old trees and roots that are lining the coastline.  I shot this image through the roots of a fallen tree, using off camera flash on the bride to get the lighting that I wanted on her.  It was a terrific time, and I can't thank everyone enough who made this happen including Vanden, Missie, Crystal and more!

Wedding Couple Plantation Shoot at Jeykll Island

This image was taken during my couple shoot before the ceremony for Opie and Mandy on Jekyll Island.  I was so enamored with this place because there are just so many places to shoot.  We received permission to shoot on the balcony of this old plantation home and it was just beautiful.

Queen of the World at Driftwood Beach in Jekyll Island, Georgia

www.jasonlanierweddingphotography.com

I just loved shooting at this beach.  Being a California boy I've grown up around the beach, and I've had the opportunity to travel the world and see beaches in five continents.  That being said, I've never seen a beach like Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island in Georgia.  Just an amazing place with so many opportunities for photographers!  This was taken during the bridal session with Mandy the day before the wedding.  Great times!

Bridals at Jekyll Island using Off Camera Flash

This image was taken of Mandy at Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, Georgia who was married there just last weekend.  We did her bridals the day before the wedding, and it's just amazing shooting on Driftwood Beach.  This wedding was done as part of my Photography Consulting Services where I come in and help another photographer to shoot their wedding.  Crystal Cherry asked me to come out and shoot this wedding with her and show her how I do what I do, and it was such a great time!  Hope you like it!

A Cuban Affair at the Christmas House Inn and Gardens

www.christmashouseweddings.com

This was such a fun wedding for me!  Sylvia and Brett were married at the Christmas House Inn and Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga where my company is the official photographer.  Being of Cuban descent, the whole wedding was decked out in Cuban themes...and yes we had the cigars!  I got the wedding party together for this shot and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Had to get up high to get this shot.  Hope you like it!

OOOPS! Wrong Hand!!

www.christmashouseweddings.com

This image was taken at my wedding for Brett and Sylvia at the Christmas House Inn and Gardens.  During the ceremony Sylvia accidentally placed the ring on Brett's right hand.  After recognizing her error she tried vigorously to remove the ring, but it was STUCK!  It was a great candid moment and definitely made for a great shot!

Taken across the street from a Kaiser Permanente Building

www.jlpros.com

I had some folks ask me about this picture yesterday at the Test Drive event and I promised to post it.  This was taken 3 years ago in Victorville, CA.  We had no time after the ceremony for the couple shoot because the ceremony went very long, so I pulled the bride and groom over to the side of a road across from a Kaiser Permanente Hospital and did this shoot in 10 minutes.  Still one of my all time favorites!

It does pay to hire the right professional photographer...

Engagements at Huntington Central Park

www.jlpros.com

Yesterday was a great day as we booked 6 weddings at our Test Drive event in Huntington Beach Central Park.  Being able to meet so many amazing couples and help them plan the biggest day of their lives is such an honor.  We had a blast.  Now the hard part is waiting until all of their wedding days...because all the weddings are in amazing locations with awesome people.  

We even met an older couple who's daughter was getting proposed to in New Hampshire yesterday, and when they saw my print from the bride in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower, they asked for our information. Thanks to everyone who came yesterday!

Running Away....a bridals at an abandoned train depot

www.jlpros.com

This image was taken at my trash the dress shoot for Danielle....this was done before we trashed her dress of course.  I love finding abandoned old places, and this place really fit the bill.  The key for me in this shot was getting down low and incorporating the tracks into the composition to give it leading lines that lead the eye to the bride and the train.
