Los Angeles Wedding Photography

These two are gold. When Elizabeth threw her heart into planning this engagement shoot, her excitement was contagious. I typically do a lot more romantic/natural style engagement photography, even in LA. But I always love playing with engagement pictures. We get the time and flexibility to play, versus on a wedding day, when we’re a lot more pressed for time. So, as you can probably tell, we had an absolute blast. Even with the smoke-clogged air, we came out with some of my favorite photos of my career.

From the moment I met Mary, I knew we would get along well. We went out for coffee and ended up barely talking about wedding plans at all. She has the best smile, and when I saw her and Carlos together, I instantly understood the attraction. They adore each other. On one of their dates Carlos was teaching Mary to skateboard. When she took a bad spill he forced her to go to the hospital, where she found out she had cancer. But because she came in when she did, they were able to operate on it and she was fine. So he saved her life.

“OMG WE LOVE THEM!!! Dan keeps saying, ‘we definitely chose the right photographer!'” Stephanie sent me this right after they saw their first Victoria Beach engagement photos. Parking at Victoria Beach for engagement photos is always tough, so when Stephanie and Daniel got stuck without parking, I got a little worried. However, we had planned ahead and had enough light to get THE MOST PERFECT engagement photos I’ve ever gotten at Victoria Beach and the Pirate Tower. They really speak for themselves. Stephanie wore a gorgeous deep red chiffon dress and Daniel was perfectly matched in a simple, crisp shirt and slacks.

C contacted me on FaceBook a little while ago asking if I’d be up for a short-notice mini, backyard wedding in Santa Clarita. I have a huge soft spot for backyard weddings, I had one myself. And C’s sweet conversation convinced me this would be a wedding of dreams. C and E loved each other so much. It was obvious from the first moment. I peeked into C’s getting ready room and found E had slipped a note under her door, saying that he loved her to infinity. These little moments are reasons I love photographing backyard weddings. When the production is stripped away, you get to the bare-bones love of the day. The entire family pitched in, decorated the whole house, and invited me to sit down for delicious food. It was amazing perfection.

I knew from the start that I would love working with Cadie and David. We met at a local coffee shop and they pretty much hired me then and there to do their engagement photos in Malibu and their wedding photography next year at Calamigos Ranch. And then they asked if they could bring their dogs to their engagement session, and I fell in love just a little bit more.

These two are so special! I felt an instant connection with her and her entire family. We took an RV up to Mount Laguna to take their engagement photos. It was a beautiful day, we had a picnic, walked up and down hills, and danced through flowering fields. It was perfection.

As with almost all the weddings this summer, Masha and Nate’s was put on hold due to Coronavirus. However, they couldn’t wait, and decided to hold a tiny backyard celebration anyway. They picked up the pieces of their original wedding, did a lot of DIY, made masks, and invited the people closest to them who weren’t as vulnerable. I love photographing backyard weddings. They are near and dear to my heart, since I had one, too.

Quite awhile ago, Liba and Sasha contacted me about doing photography for their grand Los Angeles wedding. Then, 2020 hit, and nobody was sure what to do. These two decided to get married anyway, and needless to say, it was a good choice. I loved photographing for their backyard microwedding. I’m so proud they decided to get married anyway. Maybe that’s a weird response, but I’m a huge fan of love, and finding your spouse, and marrying them, regardless of how much money you have. That’s one reason I love offering affordable wedding packages and alternatives.
