It may have rained on Marty + Rachel’s wedding at the Victorian in Santa Monica, but that gave us even more reason to do their photos with a giant fake golden rhino! (as if you would ever need extra reasons to take pictures with a golden rhino….) Anyways these two just rolled with the weather, laughing and having a spectacular time with all their family and friends. The rain even eventually cleared out for a few minutes and we were able to get outside and grab a few twilight images with with some ominous clouds.
I hope you are both having an amazing time in Hawaii and thanks for letting me celebrate with you!

Will + Christine are fellow Burbank locals and when they said they wanted to do the first part of their engagement shoot in downtown Burbank I was stoked – I love our hidden “little town” of Los Angeles and these two mark the first time I get to shoot around my own haunts. We scheduled for last weekend for Burbank and Placenta Canyon but due to a crazy last minute flash flood warning and an insane summer storm, half way though our shoot in Burbank, we had to reschedule the Santa Clarita part for a few days later.
These two just rolled with the changes and even suffered a bit of tropical humidity for their shoot. Congrats to you both!

Erick + Karla were married at Middle Ranch on a gloriously sunny July afternoon and Kenny and I were lucky enough to be their to capture it. I am always thankful when clients give me their complete trust to help create their wedding pictures and Erick + Karla were completely game for anything I had in mind, even being patient when I am running around like a mad scientist moving lights 2″ to the right or staring at the leaves of the trees to get that sun falling in at just the right angle. These two just smiled, relaxed and enjoyed their day surrounded by all their family and friends.
Thanks for having me as part of your celebration and I wish you many happy years together!

Michelle + Michael were married over the Fourth of July weekend in Camarillo at the Spanish Hills Country Club. Kenny and I spent a spectacular afternoon with these two getting to know them and their families – the weather was perfect and everyone was there to party, could you really ask for anything else?
Congrats again you two!

Intimate backyard weddings are my absolute favorite, they are all about family, friends and each other. There is just something about celebrating at home that creates a spectacular vibe for the wedding day. Maybe it’s that no one feels the need to conform to that list of “Must Do’s”, or that the bride and groom are just at peace and comfortable. Whatever that intangible is, Joel + Sonja didn’t disappoint when it came to their backyard celebration in Altadena. The entire day was just about each other and their favorite people.
Congratulation you two!
If you thinking about having a backyard wedding of your own, I highly encourage it and if you want to see some of my other favorite backyard weddings, check out Raul + Zelana, Dana + Andrew, Shannon + Garrett or John + Alisa.

I love getting to photograph in the mountains and I adore Pine Rose Cabins! These changes in scenery, mixed with the absolute, fun loving, epicness that is Eileen and Adam made for a fantastic way for Kenny and I to spend a Saturday.
Congrats again to you both and I trust your are having an amazing time in the Philippines!

Damn! Vanessa and Kevin were so full of laughter their entire wedding day that it became contagious – leaving Cara and I smiling the entire afternoon while we photographed their fantastic celebration!
These two got married at St. Denis in Diamond Bar, before heading to the Diamond Bar Golf Course to party with their friends and families. The day just flew by, but I was thrilled to have a chance to spend it with these two excellent human beings.
Congratulations to you both and I hope you had an amazing honeymoon!

A couple weekends back, Kenny and I headed to Santa Monica to take part in the intimate wedding of Yuriy and Natalia. They started their day off getting ready and having their first look at the Shangri-La Hotel on Ocean Blvd. before heading over to Palisades Park for a ceremony attended by their family and close friends. We finished off their afternoon with a portrait session overlooking the ocean as the skies changed to a beautiful cerulean blue twilight.
Congrats again Yuriy + Natalia! Thanks for the fantastic day!

Matthew and Katie came to me for their wedding photography after I had photographed two of Matt’s other band mates wedding celebrations (Avi+Angie and Justin+Christa) – they had already seen me in action and heard great things. Since I had already hit it off so well with Matt’s friends, I went into this shoot knowing Matt and Katie had to be pretty damn chill people – and needless to say, I wasn’t let down.
Their engagement session included wandering around their loft building downtown, hitting up their favorite spot for Manhattans, catching the L.A. views from Bunker Hill and then finishing up on the 4th street bridge as the sky turned to twilight with the city laid out behind us.
It was a damn fine way to spend a Sunday afternoon and I had a great time getting to know these two.
See you both next summer at your wedding!

A couple weeks back Kenny I headed to the Altadena Country Club to photograph the wedding of Laura and Ross. These two are both from the south and along with their families and friends, everyone was glowing smiles maintained that glorious southern charm the entire day!
It was a pleasure to be a part of the celebration. Congratulations again you two and have a great summer in Alabama!
