I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to volunteer with Penny Lane Centers, a center providing a multitude of services for children, for the last year or so and every single one of their fundraisers seems to top the previous one. The Penny Lane Center has an incredible team that spends months putting together fundraisers and it shows. This year, the “Cheers for Charity” event at Malibu Family Wines was a little different-there was no set program; just a lovely afternoon of wine tasting at Malibu Wines, and silent auctions (with some amazing prizes). For more information about the services that Penny Lane Provides, or, how you can help, please see their site here.
Hi, and thanks for stopping by to take a look at our work. I'm Karen Leah, a wedding, event, and portrait photographer in the Los Angeles area. My husband, Brian (he's the one with the cute accent you might hear when you call) and I run Karen Leah Photography.
Photography is something I was absolutely born to do. From the time I was in elementary school running around with my Mom 's little 110 film camera, to the time I met and married another photographer; this is it ... there is nothing better than capturing just the right moment and getting to relive them over and over again. Please enjoy the photos on my blog as much as I enjoyed creating them and being a part of these moments and memories. We look forward to hearing from you.
Talk about trust: I met Ryan and Michelle about 2 hours before their wedding day-we did everything online: Album review, consultation, timelines, scheduling-and they day went off beautifully. Every detail was LITERALLY designed and made by Michelle and Carly (and her team) from Eventful Planner. The rooftop wedding at the Canary Hotel was intimate and beautiful, just as Michelle envisioned. They had their first look at El Capitan State Beach and despite how busy it was, you would never know it-Michelle and Ryan seemed to close out everyone around them and just focused on their time together. It was an amazing thing to be a part of.
I have been dying to share this wedding but wanted to wait until the publications were done and their album selections were final. Lisa and Leah’s wedding was published on Offbeat Bride and On A Bicycle Built for Two. I could go on, and on (and on) about these two; but I think what I wrote (after Leah’s blog portion) sums it up perfectly.
There were a lot of vendors that helped make this day incredible (and Lisa and Leah, people that they are, actually had a FRAMED SIGN thanking all of us):
There are many reason I love this time of year: meeting new couples, engagement sessions, and album designing-especially when I like a couple as much as I do Matt and Reanna. Designing albums allows me to relive their wedding day. It was a perfect day at the Mission San Fernando for their wedding, followed by a fantastic portrait session and reception at Knollwood Country Club (which says a lot about how fabulous Knollwood is; Matt is a golf pro and knows Southern California golf courses inside and out-and Knollwood was one of their top choices). Matt and Reanna, I enjoyed every moment of working with you two; thank you!
