Engagement Session – Elisabeth and Marcus

When Elisabeth and Marcus approached me about doing an engagement session reminiscent of old Hollywood Glamour, I was thrilled. It’s always so much fun to find ways to make engagement sessions unique and capture each couple’s style. We had such a ball with this shoot and were so fortunate to have a spectacular location in the Hollywood Hills, as well as my favorite late afternoon lighting to truly capture the classic elegance of this stunning couple!View full post »

UCLA Wedding – Kyrra and Dane

I was very excited to photograph this wedding. I had done many engagement sessions at UCLA over the years, so I knew all about phenomemal spots for photos. What I didn’t anticipate, however, were the incredible elements that Kyrra and Dane pulled together to make this day just spectacular. First of all, they had met at UCLA, so the location really resonated for both of them and made every moment even more meaningful.  In addition, Kyrra was on the dance team at UCLA, so during theView full post »

Bel-Air Bay Club Wedding – Kaitlin and Matt

As I have written many times, it’s really all about the MOMENT for me…I love capturing details and portraits, but the love and laughter and emotion of the day is what gets me going and this wedding had it all in spades. Kaitlin and Matt are sweet and funny and genuine and so in love…it was such a joy photographing their wedding. From the pre-wedding jitters to the tears during the ceremony and INSANE party, this wedding was one for the record books! Kaitlin and Matt, thank youView full post »

Meadowbrook Hall Wedding – Lauren and Ross

It is so wonderful when I have the opportunity to photograph multiple weddings for the same family. Especially when I LOVE THE FAMILY SO MUCH! I had the sheer pleasure of getting to know the Ryan family when I photographed Kerry and Charlie’s wedding a few years back at The Beach Club in Santa Monica. When Charlie’s brother, Ross and his fiancee, Lauren, asked if I would travel to Michigan to photograph their wedding at the stunning Meadowbrook Hall and Gardens, of course I wasView full post »

Bel-Air Bay Club, Pacific Palisades

I think Melissa hired me to photograph her wedding when she had only been engaged for about a week! She is one of the most on-it brides I have ever worked with and the attention to detail on the wedding day reflected just that. From her insanely gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown, to the spectacular invitation suite by Nico and LaLa, to the understated and elegant florals and decor, the whole day was breathtaking. And once the party started it was also very clear that this was a group that knew howView full post »

Bel-Air Bay Club – Pacific Palisades

I knew the minute I met Kathryn and Derrick that working with them would be special. They are just two people that seem so perfectly made for each other. They are thoughtful and kind and fun and had such wonderful, creative ideas both for their engagement shoot and their wedding day. And when they added the beyond amazing Modern LA Weddings into the mix, with the phenomenal Nam and Hovik, at the stunning Bel-Air Bay Club- Upper Club I knew the day would be gorgeous and flawless, which itView full post »

Bel-Air Bay Club Wedding – Stacey and Paul

I LOVE the Bel-Air Bay Club. The setting, the light, the staff. It is by far one of my all-time favorite wedding venues in Los Angeles. I LOVE working there. Especially when I have the opportunity to work with a couple like Stacey and Paul. They both had such an incredible artistic vision for their wedding day and incorporated so many lovely design elements, including a custom compass logo inspired by their love of travel. Combined with the natural elegance and grace and poise that Stacey andView full post »

The 1909 Topanga

I love having the opportunity to work at new wedding venues. It always excites me to find new spots for the photos…the best little corner, the most magical light. The 1909 in Topanga was one of those places that got my creative juices really flowing…from an overgrown hillside, to a magical wooded area to the stunning ceremony spot and reception lawn, there were amazing spots at every turn. I had the added benefit of working with the most lovely, warm and kind couple, Aaron and Kim,View full post »
