This is one destination wedding that I am sure not to forget!  I am thrilled when offered the opportunity to shoot events like this because they allow me to be creative in a completely new setting. I photographed Adam & Kimberly’s wedding in scenic Lake Tahoe, CA on what could not have been a more perfect weekend. The LONG journey to Tahoe was made slightly more pleasant with friend and fellow photographer Kyle Ellis along for the ride. Upon our arrival Friday evening, we knew something was distinctly different the moment the car door opened!  We certainly weren’t in L.A. anymore…. After an 8 hour drive we found ourselves in a place where the air is crisp, the water clean, and the scenery absolutely breathtaking!

On Saturday, with our refreshed lungs and equipment in tow, we began the day at a beautiful home located right on the shores of Lake Tahoe. I was really looking forward to this wedding not only because of its picturesque location, but mostly because of the connection I feel with Adam & Kimberly and my desire to capture the enchantment that I knew this wedding would bring.  Touching and sentimental moments during the ceremony made way into an incredibly fun and memorable celebration well into the evening. The night concluded with a dash through a row of brilliant sparklers and the ecstatic couple was whisked away on a boat across the pristine lake…. how cool is that?!

On a beautiful, sun-drenched day in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, I spent the afternoon photographing Emily & Ollie’s engagement session. We started shooting at L.A’s historic Union Station where an old-world, romantic feel is around every turn. This is a fun place to start shooting, especially when it comes to overcoming any fear of “PDA’s” 🙂 After immersing Emily & Ollie in the midst of interested onlookers & extras, we moved into the main terminal. It was here where some of my favorite images were captured… we had to trespass into “off limit” areas, but the results speak for themselves! From here we journeyed to Disney Hall and then finished in front of L.A.’s Bank of America Center. Enjoy a few of my faves!

There’s nothing like the salty air of the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful wedding mere steps from the water on a Summer day in Southern California!   Melissa & Sean’s Santa Monica wedding at the ultra-hip Casa del Mar was a joy to photograph.  I had been anticipating this wedding from the first moment I met Melissa at my studio, and this excitement was further heightened after spending an afternoon with Melissa & Sean in downtown L.A. for their engagement session in the Spring. (Click here to view that session.)

The event unfolded in a relaxed and timely manner thanks to planner Maryam Forutan from Delicate Details. The day began in Melissa’s bridal suite where I captured stunning details from her immaculate gown to an array of various, elegant embellishments that added to her chic ensemble. From there, the bride and groom had their first few emotional moments as they saw each other for the first time as soon-to-be Husband and wife (see images below).

From the Bride & Groom, to the 20+ person bridal party and guests everyone was fun, energetic and a delight to work with. I was also blessed with an amazing team for this event, which further aided in the success of this pleasant day. Special thank you to Greg Fiore, Kyle Ellis, Mathew & Lindsay Groves. The vendors that came together to put on this amazing event were also pivotal in making this day especially memorable. Here are just a few:

There’s something about Palm Trees and Sunset Blvd. that gets me excited! I spent the afternoon with Hilya & Payam in Beverly Hills, CA. a few days ago. We started shooting at the famous Greystone Mansion for all of about 2 minutes, before be kindly asked to leave, ha ha. Not to be deterred, we made our way over to Will Rogers Memorial Park and continued the fun. And everyone knows that if you’re at Will Rogers, you might as take a tour of the grand Beverly Hills Hotel.. and that’s exactly what we did! From there we capped off a fun day on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, CA. Please enjoy a few of my images that caught my eye..

Here is a fabulous wedding I had the privilege of photographing over the summer! I love shooting weddings at the Westlake Village Inn, in Westlake Village, CA. The Inn is a beautiful location in many ways, but also nostalgic, as I’ve photographed numerous weddings over the last several years. I started shooting Leigh Ann, who was absolutely giddy with excitement, and then onto the rest of the party. The intimate ceremony took place in front the timeless white Gazebo, with a stunning lake view filling the background. As they say, “A picture is worth”, etc etc., so take a look at few of my favs !

As a photographer, there’s nothing quite as inspiring (and fun) as shooting in downtown L.A. On this beautiful July afternoon I started shooting at the historic Union Station and then finished up at Casey’s Irish Pub, which was a first for me! Leslie & Justin have a refreshing playfulness that was a joy to capture. I thoroughly enjoyed spending some time learning more their relationship while simultaneously capturing inspiring images.  Please enjoy a few images from Leslie & Justin’s engagement session in downtown, L.A.!
