Newport Beach Temple | MaKenna + Josh

Newport Beach Temple Wedding

Newport Beach Temple

When I was initially contacted by MaKenna’s mom, I was excited to learn she had found me via Pinterest, and even more excited about the opportunity to travel to the beautiful Newport Beach Temple. MaKenna is from Las Vegas, but MaKenna’s favorite temple is Newport Beach. It was such a beautiful setting to match such a beautiful couple.

MaKenna and Josh also had a beautiful ring ceremony. It was so special to have her dad officiate. I loved capturing the tender moments and all the details of the ceremony. I also loved that they did a cocktail hour that consisted of Diet Coke, Cranberry and Orange juice. Such a fun idea that I haven’t seen before!

When it came to making this day as stress-free as possible, MaKenna did everything right. She had amazing vendors take care of everything from the flower arrangements, her hair and makeup, a DJ, and a planner at the reception location. I always recommend getting professionals to take care of the details. It allows the bride, groom and families to enjoy their special day while others worry about the details.

You were the best. You took charge and gathered everyone and you captured every moment we wanted and more! It was the perfect day. I loved how involved you were in our day and helping us make it so special. You truly captured every magical and special moment. The photos turned out absolutely amazing.


It really takes a team of people to have a wedding come together. I have to give credit to all the amazing vendors who made this beautiful day possible.
