Alan, the groom, is a good high school friend of the amazingly talented photographer Kari Bellamy.
 
 
 
When Kari and Alan met in Los Angeles over the Christmas period, Alan admitted that he didn’t hire a wedding photographer when he recently married his wife Tanya.
 
 
So Kari suggested that the couple pop on their wedding outfits and do a “trash the dress shoot” in Joshua Tree National Park.
 
 
 
 
Alan and Tanya thought it would be fun to bring their parrot Rhubarb along, and I couldn’t agree more. Parrots are the cheekiest birds and Kari found a creative way to include Rhubarb in a lot of the photographs without deflecting attention away from the in-love couple. Don’t you just blush when you see the photograph of Alan biting Tanya’s ear?  That is the definition of ‘newlyweds’.
 
 
 
 
More than anything I really love how Kari made the most of the soft, natural lighting. It goes to show that for a photographer lighting is everything and Kari sure knows how to make the most of it.
 
 
Thanks so much for sharing.
