Brookside Pasadena Wedding Photographer – Lucy & Randy!!

12:49 PM

I love tea ceremonies. I really do. It’s one of the only Eastern traditions that’s made its way into the mainstream here and I was so glad to see Lucy & Randy making it a part of their day. There really isn’t any other moment in a wedding where entire families are honored, able to actively participate, and actually have tons of fun in the process. Have you ever seen stoic Asian parents busting up laughing at the top of their lungs? Have you ever seen your dad fist bump your uncle or your mom giggling so much she has to lean on your aunt for support? I have…and it’s not during the reception toasts or during the ceremony vows…it’s during the tea ceremony games when the groom and groomsmen must pass a series of ‘tests’ put forth by the brides entourage. It hilarious, it’s awesome, and it brings everyone together; that’s why it’s important. It’s the perfect high-five of classical East with modern West. And I hope to see it more.

Lucy and Randy are really cool. We talked over email for months and month and months before finally meeting but in all honesty I felt like I already knew them. They shared their ideas openly with me as we planned their engagement and wedding day. For the wedding, I was very excited to visit all my favorite spots in town but wanted to shoot them from a fresh perspective yet still retain the classic charm of each spot. We decided on City Hall and Pasadena’s bridge, two spots that I will always love. The design is second to none while the banter between the light and shadow never gives the same look twice. Their wedding was, in its entirety, a perfect shoot. The itinerary packed in two tea ceremonies, cross-town Creative Sessions, and a full ring ceremony + reception in the evening. The rolling greens of Pasadena’s Brookside Country Club set an awesome backdrop for the ceremony while the beautifully-lit reception room featured décor & centerpieces created by the bride herself!

Thanks for sharing =)

I first fell in love with SimplyTwo Photography 3 years ago when one of my friends shared her engagement pictures with us online. The pictures were vibrant with color (but not so overdone that they came out tacky), focused on the couple (at times and on objects when it was appropriate) and just overall gorgeous. In the three years after I was exposed to those pictures, there were no other engagement/wedding pictures from others (in magazines and from friends) whose pictures even caught my eye. I knew John's work was special and exactly what I wanted as my keepsake for my once-in-a-lifetime life event. When we started planning our wedding, we made sure to have SimplyTwo as our first vendor (even before choosing our venue and picking our wedding date--weird, right?). John is super responsive (he'll even respond when you're brainstorming late at night), incredibly easy to work with (it felt like we were having pictures taken by a friend), and he made sure he got EVERY shot I wanted and as well as the ones he wanted. I have no complaints. Even my parents were very impressed with his work (and it's not easy to impress them). If I could compensate him more for his work, I would. Wedding photography is not cheap, but it's what you get to keep forever so you should definitely invest in a photographer whose work is to your liking. SimplyTwo Photography is simply the easiest decision to make for your photography needs. You won't regret it. Thank you for everything, John! – Lucy & Randy
