Jen & Eric Wed

November 9, 2017


The Details

We’ve all heard the term “shit happens”.  And sadly for Jen & Eric, ALL of the “shit” happened on their wedding day.  I was SO excited to photograph their Calamigos Ranch wedding.  However, as fate would have it, for the first time in my life, I came down with an incredibly severe (& almost life-threatening as my doctor’s put it) case of pneumonia which caused me to be hospitalized for a month.  The month of Jen & Eric’s wedding.  As I was sitting in my hospital room, progressively getting worse, I realized there was no way I was going to be discharged in time.  I cried.  I felt horrible to be missing their big day.  I’d never been late to, let alone missed a wedding prior to this hospitalization & the thought of letting them down broke my heart.  I had lost my voice from all of the coughing & was on oxygen, so I couldn’t even make a phone call, but rather had to relay all of this information via email.  In the meantime I reached out to my amazing network of fellow photographers to find a replacement.  To my delight, my friend & mentor Jeremy Chou contacted me saying he was available & would love to help me out in this way.  I cried … like literally bawling my eyes out.  I don’t think I’ve ever been so overwhelmed & grateful knowing that these amazing clients were in such capable & talented hands.

Fast forward to their wedding day.  Jeremy gets into a car accident … air bags & all, which totaled his vehicle.  After exchanging information, he literally uber’ed from the scene directly to the wedding venue!  Sadly there were issues with Jen’s hair & makeup, florals, etc.  All of the details she had invested so much time & energy into weren’t as she dreamed.  However, she’s got a great attitude & outlook & at the end of the day they were happily married.

The Inspiration

For their 1 year anniversary, I thought it would be fun to put together a small styled shoot for this sweet couple.  I am so grateful for clients who are kind, compassionate & understanding & I wanted to give them something that would last a lifetime.  So I contacted a few of my wedding industry friends to see what we could come up with.  Thanks to the incredibly talented hair & makeup artist Emily Wright & our amazingly gifted florist Stacey Deutsch, we were able to provide Jen & Eric with a beautiful anniversary session!

About Tiffany

From the delicate details, to the fleeting moments, to the candid expressions, my number one priority as your wedding photographer is to create imagery that takes you right back to how you felt in that exact moment.

Through intentional composition, I strive to zero in on the moments you likely didn’t even notice. Memories are so much more than details … they’re feelings. With every click of my shutter, I want to bring your vision to life while allowing you to be deeply present.
