Inn of the Seventh Ray Wedding ~ Eric and Len

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

I met Eric and Len about a month before their celebration at Inn Of The Seventh Ray Weddings. The evening was perfect and absolutely flew by for us; so I can’t imagine how quickly it went for them. The best thing about working with artists is that there’s never a need to explain why a photo needs to be done in certain light-they knew what I was going to say before I could even finish the sentence! :-) Also, as an added bonus, Holly and the staff at the Inn were amazing to work with! We truly loved being a part of such a special evening!

Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church Wedding ~ Erica and Hernan

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

I have a very soft spot for intimate weddings. Brian and I had one here, and one where he’s from. And as a photographer, there’s something so meaningful about being a part of such a close-knit celebration. Erica and Hernan also appealed to the type-A personality that I have a teeny wee bit of :-) They set a perfect timeline, were actively involved in selecting just the perfect spot for photos (Brand Library & Art Center) after their beautiful ceremony at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Hollywood and their itinerary was organizational gold for me. Their wedding day was made perfect by a reception at Redbird at Cathedral of Saint Vibiana. (and a special thanks to the team there for giving us access to some stunning spots)! Erica and Hernan, thank you for having me as a part of such a romantic, and personal celebration!

I am so excited to share this wedding. I love experiencing the enthusiasm for a wedding with couple. This bride’s energy and enthusiasm for her wedding was so exciting to be a part of! She also appealed to my Type-A planner personality. She was organized, had a classic, romantic vision for her day; and her coordinator, Elizabeth was brilliant in helping her execute this!

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.
