Frequently, a planner or family member will recommend a second photographer (or second shooter) for your wedding. Wedding photography packages with second shooters are (justifiably) much more expensive, typically. So do you really need a second shooter?

For those of you who have looked through my website, you know I don’t do a ton of downtown LA engagement photography. But when these two told me about their relationship and how they had grown there, it wasn’t even a question. We started off at the Walt Disney Concert Hall doing the first engagement photos, and then wandered downtown in a route I planned while on a film shoot earlier that month.

On September 2nd, 2021, a boy and a girl hiked into the Yosemite wilderness and came out husband and wife. I got to photograph Stephanie and Alistair’s Yosemite elopement portraits. The day after they eloped, we met at Glacier point right as the sun began to rise and captured their love in camera.

One of the things I firmly believe, in life, and in the wedding photography industry, is a sort of kinship. We’re all put here on this earth to help each other out. So when Nick Mueller (of the incredible Nick Mueller Photography) reached out to a small photography community, I offered to help. He had a wedding coming up and, for covid reasons, wasn’t comfortable shooting the reception portion of the day. So we agreed on a fee, he got final approval from the mom, and we were all set!

If you take one thing away from this post, I want you to take this away: go do a Griffith Observatory elopement. When you do, go elope at sunrise. Go elope at Griffith Observatory at sunrise. Morning is pretty much the only sensible time to have any privacy at a popular spot in California. As a southern California elopement photographer, I’ve learned this the hard way.

Kevork and Melody are a unique couple. Kevork is a tall, gangly guy who loves his car. Melody is a graceful girl with delicate fingers and a gorgeous mass of thick, dark hair. As soon as they got in front of the camera, the engagement photos started going amazing. We did engagement photos at Lake Silverwood, California. I live near there, so I had scouted some locations ahead of time and knew exactly where I wanted to take them.

I meet so many couples who are so overwhelmed trying to plan for their wedding. They don’t know what to book first, find it hard to motivate themselves, or get sticker shock when it comes to starting to make purchases or deposits. Are you frozen because you don’t know where to start? Here are a few tips!

Steven and Vanessa originally booked me for Los Angeles wedding photography and videography back in 2019, for fall 2020 backyard wedding photography. She was one of my first weddings booked when we moved to Los Angeles. I was so excited because they were such a beautiful couple. We did engagement photos together, and they were so sweet, romantic, and easy to shoot.
