St. Regis Monarch Beach Wedding, Erin and TJ – Part II

I was scheduled to make this post on Monday but here it is Friday already… I got a bit behind this week with the Stone Brewery tour and wrapping up production on the T-Mobile job. I know Erin and TJ are checking everyday while they are honeymooning in the Cook Islands. Haha, I hope not but maybe… Part-I recapped on the amazing vendors, decor and some details. This post is a mix of everything else and a lot of portraits of the couple. We are turning over a slideshow for their Japanese ceremony in June. So I edited some extra images for the DVD. I also developed a new recipe with the Totally Rad Actions.  Enjoy!



You gotta love those shoes, I do! Wish I had a pair without the heel of course. I only need three inch. 







First meeting.

I had Erin stand on one of the reception table for this shot. The pin spot was perfect!

We started a little dance party before the ceremony…

Here’s the accompanying shot that goes with the teaser photo posted last week.

I think that was Sake they were drinking, that’s fun!




No one ever quite know to throw the petals on the chairs… 



“Everyone do the ‘Erin’!” That’s was one of our theme shots for the day.

The back of Erin’s dress was so unique I have like a hundred shots of them walking away. This one at least you catch a glimpse of them in the mirror.

Erin’s uncle played the bagpipes as they entered the cocktail hour on the Pacific Lawn. 





They score really well on their ‘First Dance’ as well! 


The band was awesome, they had different singers to perform a wide range of music. It was at least a 20 piece band.

We wish the gorgeous newlyweds a happy and healthy life together. And may the love they felt that day remain with them always.

Victor, you did a fantastic job! The best wedding photos we have ever seen! Congratulations!

Hey Victor Sizemore – I wasn’t sure if your photos could top your performance on the basketball court but they did. What a great combination – phenomenal photographer with athletic ability! I always knew that Erin was photogenic especially when she does “the Erin” but to get my brother’s “good side” each and every time was truly amazing. :) Thanks again for setting up the game, providing drinks, etc. and for hangin’ with us throughout this unforgettable weekend.

LW - May 28, 2009 - 3:28 pm

These are gorgeous and beautiful! You’ve captured so many great moments!

caren - May 27, 2009 - 1:27 pm

wow how fun it must have been to be the photographer for this couple….with all their style and your talent….some incredable photos….the hair and make-up artist did a fantastic job.

It was such a honor to attend Erin and TJ’s exquisite wedding. Erin was perfect in her elegant wedding dress that she designed with the dramatic obi-touch. TJ is definitely her handsome and charming husband. My 3 y/o granddaughter would be saying that ‘Princess Erin found her gorgeous prince’. Every detail was thought of for this splendid wedding…totally amazing! How wonderful to have Victor Sizemore as the photographer who was so artistic and who showed such warmth in his photographs. Kate, you looked so beautiful and so happy. The irish musicians and your brother playing the bagpipes were so special. Thanks for allowing Grant and me to enjoy Erin’s wedding.

Victor: You captured the essence of a wonderful couple on May 2nd. It was a travel back to that day. To relive the excitment and joy that surrounded Erin and TJ was a treasure. The serious and the playful moments meshed together to potray Erin and TJ as they embark on their life together. Great Job.

These were the most beautiful wedding pictures that I have ever seen! Erin and T.J., you are a storybook couple and we pray that you will have a storybook lifetime together! Thank you for inviting us to share in your celebration!

Chris - May 25, 2009 - 12:33 pm

Seriously amazing photos! The bride Erin looks movie-star stunning and TJ has a big grin on his face in nearly every picture!

My favorite would either have to be the kiss or the bride and her father! Words can’t express the emotion portrayed in these photos!


K. Gomez - May 25, 2009 - 3:10 am

Victor –
These pictures are insane! Everything looks magical! And the bride and groom look so happy! You can see that in every single shot. That glow and hope that comes shinning through when you have found and married “the one”. Great job Victor.

TJ and Erin, may your love and happiness last forever.

Hey Victor,
I’m a recent visitor to your blog and your work is stunning! I’m loving those rocken black and white shoes (a woman after my own heart). Those rings are also incredible. Beautiful work..I look forward to checking out your blog regularly. Thanks for posting such gorgeous photographs.

vcs - May 18, 2009 - 11:58 am

Hey Kyle, you’re hilarious! I went ‘pro’ in photography instead of basketball. I think TJ had been working on those moves for a while!

Kristin Freeland - May 18, 2009 - 11:29 am

Wonderful wonderful photos. Can this couple be any prettier?? I would to see what their children are going to look like :) – Kristin Kelsey Freeland (blog stalker)

Kyle Keagan - May 18, 2009 - 11:02 am

Victor Sizemore! Never thought your photos would top your jumpshot, but they did. The photos are amazing. I think we all felt very fortunate to be a part of that day and you immortalized it beautifully. I really like the dance photos that shows TJ’s extreme flexibility……. Keep your game tight Mr. Sizemore!

Gail Young - May 17, 2009 - 8:15 am

Victor, you are the best. My son and new daughter-in-law look beautiful in your photos. So glad you didn’t shoot any of me.
Ha Ha
