tyler and rachael | los angeles wedding photographer

and incredibly special thanks to my wonderful friend (and talented photographer!!) Eden Thome for flying down from Reno to 2nd shoot this with me. I knew she would be the perfect person to shoot alongside me. She captured the great photos of the groom getting ready, as well as his two portraits in the field.
