one of the nice things about having kim as my second shooter is she can be a little more creative and find angles other than mine. i think she did a great job here. most of these detail shots and scenes of tiffany and the girls getting ready are kim’s. unlike when you were in elementary school, four eyes are better than two.

bobby boucher was out with a shoulder injury, so with no waterboy around karmina stepped in to keep everyone hydrated. one thing about karmina, she likes to substitute lemon drops for water. it’s a skill she learned in her short stint as a bartender at her own wedding.

still hot. still happy. there’s nothing better than seeing one of our couples still totally in love long after their wedding.

“i’ll never forget the amount of love we felt from everybody who was there. sheer happiness. knowing how grateful i am. life is too short. we made it, against all odds. realizing how following your heart leads to really good things. oh, and how much my feet hurt. my shoes are pure evil!” – tiffany

at around 10pm tiffany busted out her wonder woman invisible jump rope and totally won the dance battle.

after all the stress they go through planning, we love seeing our couples having fun on their wedding day. that’s what it’s all about.

like our other couples, tiffany and pat showed that they are just as hot as they are fun. thank you for letting us take you away from your reception for a bit to get these shots tiffany and pat.

everyone’s wedding day schedule is always a bit hectic so we really appreciate any time our couples take to step away and let us have our way with them.

tiffany and pat, thank you for letting us share this time with you and your ohana.

it’s funny, how similar your story is to ours. you both met in the “library” just like kim and i. (yours was called club safari in tijuana, ours was called studebakers in hawaii.) pat and i both do the same job for the government. you have two beautiful kids, like us. you love disneyland. us too! you lived in hawaii, so did i.

i guess that’s why we were all a perfect fit for each other. kim and i had so much fun with you two. congratulations on your first ten years together. we wish you many many more happy years ahead.
