Santa Barbara Chic Wedding :: Beach and Barn http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Santa-Barbara-Chic-Wedding-Beach-and-Barn Julie and Paul's wedding was recently featured in The Knot Magazine and excited to finally share their photos. Everything was designed, planned and coordinated by the Sterling Social team, who I love working with. From the ceremony on a bluff, overlooking the ocean, to a gorgeous cocktail hour on the beach with a couple bars set up, a meat and cheese station to a raw bar, then finishing it off in the old barn at Dos Pueblos. Stunning event with catering by Contemporary Catering.

Dos Pueblos Wedding :: Damien + Lindsay http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Dos-Pueblos-Wedding-Damien-Lindsay Soooo I've had some pretty major life things happen that have caused me to neglect my blog. We just sold our house, bought another, went straight into a remodel which is just wrapping up as we had our third baby girl (post coming soon) two weeks ago. A whole lot of hecticness and cause for me to be home more than usual helping out my wife. That's not my excuse, just explaining why there's been a lack of posts. It definitely hasn't been for a lack of shooting.

This was a wedding I just realized I never blogged and it was one of my favorites from the end of last year. Damien and Lindsay were marred at the Santa Barbara Mission with their reception held at Rancho Dos Pueblos. Simply Natural Events coordinated the day with incredible florals and design by the talented Tricia Fountaine.

I got to know Lindsay and Damien through spending some time in NYC, where they've lived, shooting their enagement photos and it was so special being a part of their wedding. If you look at the theme of the decor, you'll notice a lot of travel related things. Straight after the wedding, they left for a year long trip around the world. Tables were arranged by the different countries they were planning to visit. I was so jealous hearing about that trip. I mean, if you're going to start off your marriage right, that's the way to do it.

Hope you can see the love and emotion in the photos that was present on their day.

Flutter Magazine Big Sur Wedding Feature http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Flutter-Magazine-Big-Sur-Wedding-Feature Flutter Magazine has been blowing me away with each new issue it publishes. The layout is so beautiful and I've been honored to have been featured in the most recent 4 issues. In the issue coming out and on stands now, they featured a wedding I photographed in Big Sur at a home called Wind and Sea. Big Sur is such a special place and it's really hard to beat that northern California coast line.

Here are the spreads from my feature and I'd highly recommend picking up the magazine. You can find them online or at most Barnes and Nobles.

Bridget + Mike :: Parker Palm Springs Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Bridget-Mike-Parker-Palm-Springs-Wedding Bridget and Mike were married at The Parker Palm Springs at the end of last year. The Parker is one of my favorite venues and if you like the Mid Century Modern look, this is your place. Jonathan Adler designed the interior decor and it is top notch.

Bridget and Mike were such a fun couple and loved being a part of their wedding. Working with Green Ribbon Events and the team of people like JL Designs made the decor stunning and day run smoothly!

Yeah! Field Trip Portraits http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Yeah-Field-Trip-Portraits I had the chance to participate in Photo Field Trip that took place last month. It was an awesome experience and you have to try and go next year. I shot some portraits of old friends and new.

Another announcement is that I've launched a new site I've been working on called The Artist Report - where I interview other creatives about their processes, inspirations and what they're up to.

There are a few interviews up from Field Trip and I have a bunch in the pipeline to start making live. Hope you go check it out!

A Wedding Under the Trees :: Anne + Marc http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/A-Wedding-Under-the-Trees-Anne-Marc Weddings on private estates are at the top of my list for favorite places to shoot weddings. This was family property up in the Santa Ynez valley near Solvang. The landscape in that area is so picturesque with the rolling hills and moss covered trees. I acutally met Anne and Marc while I was photographing a concert (here's a link to the actual show I shot that night of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) So we connected over a love of music and I got to spend a day with them shooting their engagement photos around an old airport Anne's dad was a big part of.

Here are their photos. Loved this wedding:

The team was made up of Jesi Haack with the design, Carissa of JL Designs, 1011 makeup took care of Shauna and her girls, and The Love Riot coordinated the day. And that evening, guests were treated with incredible food by Woah Nelly Catering and DJ JP kept the dancfloor packed. A really fun day to say the least.

Carondelet House Wedding :: Eric + Kelsey http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Carondelet-House-Wedding-Eric-Kelsey Carondelet House has become one of my favorite spots for weddings lately. It feels like you're at some great home from the early 1900's, dining in the great living room, cocktail hour out in the courtyard, and the place has so much character, you almost don't need to do a thing to it. 

Eric and Kelsey were married there earlier this year and it was such a special wedding to be a part of. The vows they wrote to each other were probably the sweetest I've heard (and I've heard one or two), the the real love between them was beyond evident.

I really do feel lucky getting to be a part of the weddings I'm a part of. This was definitely one of those.

We spent about an hour or so up in the hills and came away with some beautifully sweet photos.

A Beaulieu Garden Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/A-Beaulieu-Garden-Wedding I keep wanting to say that this was another favorite couple of mine but I find I'm saying that for everyone. The truth is, I really love the couples I get to shoot. For their engagement shoot, Kristy and Eliot were living in New York, so I flew out that way to document them in their environment. Take a look at that shoot HERE if you didn't see it.

Spending a day with them in NYC made spending the weekend with them for their wedding so much more fun. They're one of those couples that make everyone feel welcome and special. They're a blast to hang out with and their wedding was stunning.

Beaulieu Garden is a special place for a wedding. Tucked away off the main road in Napa, you pull through this incredible tree lined road into a stunning property. The wedding was incredible, planned and coordinated by Enjoy Events, Co. Loved working with these girls!!

A Hip Los Angeles Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/A-Hip-Los-Angeles-Wedding For starters, this couple is amazing. I love the couples I get to photograph and these two rank at the top. If you didn't see them, go back and look at their engagement shoot I photographed on an old hippie compound here in LA. So much fun.

Then their wedding was a blast. Megan and Bryan met on tour as professionial tap dancers and you better believe they did a tap performance for their first dance. Bryan's strut/dance down the aisle was probably my favorite part and the element of joy and love was abounding.

Their wedding was held in Los Angeles at the Marvimon. Their planners, Gather Events, are so talented and love getting to work with them and the night was held together with DJ Smiles keeping everyone on the dancefloor.

Ryan is my brother-in-law, and it was so special that I was able to document some of the most intimate moments of their wedding.  Ryan and Jenny have such an amazingly sweet realtionship. He is protective and chilvarous, and she is selfless, thoughtful and a joy to be around.  Their love for eachother is tangible, and watching how excited they were to be getting married reminds you of how all weddings should be.  This wedding was completley DIY, and the amount of personal touches were in abundance!  I think my mother-in-law made around 200 felt flowers! Ryan and Jenny, you created the intimate, beautiful and friends and family focused wedding you dreamed of! Hope you enjoy the memories.

Vegas, wppi, Friends and Portraits http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Vegas-wppi-Friends-and-Portraits Every year, there is a big photo convention where photographers come from all over the world to see the latest and greatest new equipment or wedding goods but many come to see old friends fom across the country or globe and have a good time. I spent some money on a new system so I can now carry on my body 6 cameras and I'm pretty happy about that. But I really go out there to see old friends and make new ones. There was a lot of that this year!

I brought an old canon point and shoot which broke the first night, then borrowed one of Nate Kaiser's (Image is Found) on the second night of craziness. The color shots were Kodak Portra 160 and the rest were Kodak Tmax 400. It was a fun trip to say the least!

PawnShop kings - Call My Name http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/PawnShop-kings-Call-My-Name I had the oportunity to go to Nashville with PawnShop kings as they were recording their new album, Beach & Bayou. Call My Name is probably my favorite song on the album, all of which are great, but particularly connect with this one. I shot a video of the guys for Call My Name and here it is. Hope you like! And click HERE so see more of my music photos, including lots of shots of PawnShop kings and bands like Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe, Cold War Kids, Arcade Fire, and a bunch more.

Portraits of a Man http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Portraits-of-a-Man I think there's something within most guys that deep down, they're always jealous of a good beard. This is Ryan Haack. He's a man's man. A good friend, great cook, dad, husband, photographer, videographer, surfer, and he smokes a pipe. And he has the beard most guys wish they could grow. So these are my portraits of man.

Annie+Jon :: A Marivmon Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/AnnieJon-A-Marivmon-Wedding Annie and Jon were married a few months back at the Marvimon in Los Angeles. Love shooting weddings there and loved this couple. Annie is the sweetest and Jon is an incredibly talented videographer. During the wedding, he screened a film he put together from a several month trip he and Annie took prior to their wedding. It was stunning to watch and loved getting to know the two of them.

Jaime+Mike :: A Beachfront Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/JaimeMike-A-Beachfront-Wedding Jaime and Mike were married a few months back with an intimate wedding held at Jaime's parent's home in Hermosa Beach. We had the most incredible team behind this wedding from the Be Inspired PR girls planning and coordinating, JL Designs doing the floral decor, Pitbulls and Posies with all the papergoods, and Contemporary Catering who put together a delicious dinner. Kellee from Lover.ly was the maid of honor and we had such a fun time.

Family Time at the Beach http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Family-Time-at-the-Beach My blog has been incredibly neglected this past year. I've been shooting a ton and have things from last January that should be blogged but still haven't. That's a whole other issue I'm mentally dealing with is that I'd rather blog things right away but at the same time, I'm submitting most of my work to various blogs and publications. Generally in that case, I find it better to hold off blogging for their sake. But now I find myself getting crazy behind or forgetting about posts in the past. Do you experience the same mental tension? What are your thoughts?

Then there's my family. I shoot them everywhere we go and love the pics. I tend to not post as many on my blog because this is the showcase of my work...but at the same time, my family is the biggest part of me and I think they're pretty dang cute. I'm planning to post more of them too. Do you want to see more or less family?? Thoughts on posting personal work?

For now, here's an afternoon at the beach with my little gang! Love them.

Heather + Niko :: Los Angeles Greek Wedding http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Heather-Niko-Los-Angeles-Greek-Wedding This wedding, held at the Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles, was one of the more elegant and beautiful weddings I photographed last year. Niko and his family are Greek, and his heritage was laced throughout the wedding. From the grand Greek church, to the groomsmen undressing and dressing him before the wedding, to the dancing and plate breaking at the reception.

Heather was absolutely stunning on her wedding day. For the first part of the wedding, she wore her white, Vera Wang wedding gown but then after the ceremony, changed into a gorgeous black wedding dress, also by Vera Wang. Loved this wedding and hope you do too.

They've been together long enough to know each other, love each other and have fun together. This couple is special for me because Elyse is the little sister of one of my best friends growing up so I've know her for years! Their wedding is going to be in Santa Barbara at Bacara early next year and it is going to be such a fun celebration.

Love their engagement pics and love the Roadster they borrowed from Elyse's dad! He's always had the most amazing cars. Congrats Elyse and Zach. Can't wait for your wedding.

I'm generally showing up a day or so before the wedding, spending time with guests and by the time the wedding actually happens, I feel like a part of everything going on. They're intimate, romantic and everyone is together for more than just a couple hours on the wedding day. For Alexandra and Anthony, Mammoth is a special place and for me, I grew up snowboarding there since I could walk. In the summer, Mammoth is stunning. This wedding was definitely one of my faves this year. Let me know what you think!

Sigur Ros at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Sigur-Ros-at-the-Hollywood-Forever-Cemetery I don't post a lot of the music stuff I shoot on this blog all that often but this concert was something different. Something special. Sigur Ros is a band I've loved for a long time. If you don't know them or thier music, stop what you're doing and look them up. The band is from Iceland and their music is beautiful.

And why I chose to post this concert, isn't because of the band photos I got but the experience of the concert. The venue was the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and it was a perfect setting. The crowd was encouraged to bring blankets, picnic baskets and to make the evening a whole experience instead of just another concert. That happened and it was spectacular. Here are just a few pics. If you want to see more of my music photos go to braedonflynn.com OR I run a music blog called The Noise Train. Take a peek!

New York in the Snow and Some Ramblings http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/New-York-in-the-Snow-and-Some-Ramblings I'm going to start off with an apology for my lack of blogging lately. It's definitley not for a lack of content, I've just been crazy busy with different photo jobs, weddings, engagement shoots and travel for all of the above. I do have some good stuff backlogged for the blog and I hope you haven't lost interest in my blog!

While out in NYC for the last engagement shoot up on my blog, I like to take a day walking around shooting photos. It was the first time I've been in New York while it was snowing. Central Park was stunning, I loved the streets, the buildings, and the cars in the snow (coming from a sunny California boy). I hope you enjoy these photos like I do.

Meredith + Joe :: Williamsburg NY Engagement http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Meredith-Joe-Williamsburg-NY-Engagement I got to spend a cold, snowy, yet beautiful day walking around with Melissa and Joe documenting the places that hold so much meaning to them.  From the L train that took them back and forth to each other, to their favorite local place to eat ribs, to an amazing bar, it was great seeing them in the places that are familiar to them.  I am so excited for their upcoming wedding in Mexico City.

New York in the Snow http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/New-York-in-the-Snow I've been out to New York pretty frequently the last few years but rarely catch it on a first snow. I walked around Central Park by myself for an hour or so (until my toes froze) and snapped a few photos on the way. I haven't seen them all yet but this one stood out to me.

Stephanie + Rob :: Rancho Dos Pueblos http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Stephanie-Rob-Rancho-Dos-Pueblos Stephanie and Rob's wedding was such a joy to shoot.  They were so relaxed and sweet the whole day, nothing seemed to be more important about the day other than they were getting married, which is the way you hope it to be! They both have impecable style, and a great group of friends to make the reception one heck of a party. Really, a perfect wedding altogether. Enjoy.

A Steam Punk Wedding at Rancho Dos Pueblos http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/A-Steam-Punk-Wedding-at-Rancho-Dos-Pueblos Kate and Jacob's wedding was very special to be a part of. When they booked me for their wedding, I had no idea what was coming. But when I knew they were in the hands of their mastermind designer, Tricia Fountaine, this wedding was going to be over the top, brilliant! Then when I showed up on their wedding day, I was still blown out of the water by how well everything came together. Family members, bridal party, bride, groom, down to every single guest dressed the part of this wedding. I felt like I was on a movie set. Let me know what you think of this wedding!!

Mark + Jane :: A Formal Affair http://www.braedonsblog.com/home/show/Mark-Jane-A-Formal-Affair Mark and Jane's wedding was a fun one for me to shoot. After meeting with Jane to initially talk about their wedding, we realized that I went to high school and played water polo with her fiance Mark. It was a blast re-connecting and their wedding was stunning. Formal and elegant with an easygoing, relaxed vibe. Hope you love the photos!
