Point Magu Wedding ~ Janelle and Alex

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Look at their gorgeous furbaby’s tuxedo!!! I love everything about this wedding. Janelle and Alex wanted a camp site gathering of their closest friends and family. It was such an awesome sight to walk into their reception and see the entrance way surrounded by tents (including their own perfectly accented one). We started with a wonderful first look at Leo Carrillo Beach followed by a beautiful ceremony and reception at Point Magu State Park. And Alex and Janelle did something I wish all of my couples could factor into their timeline-they dedicated almost a whole hour for photos of just the two of them. At the beach. At sunset. And I think it was totally worth it-it gave them some time to themselves on a fast moving day and more memories for a lifetime.

Altadena Wedding ~ Jordan and Charles

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

I met Jordan at a bridal show at the Queen Mary awhile back. When we met later to talk about her wedding I was so excited at the possibility of working with her and Charles! And when we did our venue walkthough a few months later I wanted to move into that private home she was using for her wedding. The home had an underground vault, private hair salon, and a stunning reception and ceremony site (check out that night time photo). Jordan, her mom, her wonderful bridal party, and the team at the home did an incredible job designing her wedding-Brian and I could’ve spent all day on just the details!!

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel Wedding ~ Deseree and Michael

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

When Deseree and Michael described their vision for their Disney/Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding to me when we met I was so excited to see their vision brought to reality. I loved the subtle charm and elegance of their wedding (and Brian, my Arsenal loving husband was even able to mostly look past the subtle nods to the Chelsea FC they also incorporated throughout their day). It was another gorgeous wedding with flawless details brought to life by Party and Be Married.

Sepan Banquet Hall Wedding ~ Manizheh and Julio

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

This wedding was very special for me. It was the 6th wedding I’ve photographed for one of my favorite families. It means the world to me that they trust us with another one of their once in a lifetime events. Manny and Julio had the perfect day: Starting with a delightful and new priest at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church . Then, we did their bridal session at an area close to my heart where I spent many of my childhood days – Ferndell Nature Museum in Griffith Park. We finished up their day at the Sepan Banquet Hall in Atwater Village. And, like a woman after my own heart, Manny said she wasn’t much of a crafter but that she learned for her wedding. You would never be able to tell that this was her first time doing this because every single one of her wedding crafts (including her flowers) were fabulous.
