Creating Rancho del Cielo wedding photography has always been an absolute pleasure for us. It has incredible vistas and beautiful gardens and the staff there have always been the most welcoming and attentive crew. Every time we photograph there (and we shoot there a lot), we find new and amazing places to shoot. Have I mentioned the light? The summer light that bathes the Malibu mountain top is always exquisite and helps us create the most amazing photographs and portraits!  But enough about Rancho del Cielo; what about Valerie and Derek?  There was certainly something  special about this couple. It had to do with the way that light touched them and lit up their eyes when they looked at one another. The endless smiles on their faces and those of their family and friends were infectious. I think especially unique for a wedding was the food that as served at their wedding. You won’t see many weddings where spare ribs and tacos are cooked up for the hungry guests. It was an honor to be a part of this magical day at Rancho del Cielo. Creating wedding Photography in Malibu, which we feel is like a second Heaven in the sky is always a pleasure. Congratulations to Valerie and Derek on their beautiful day. Your wedding was phenomenal and we wish you long, healthy and happy lives together! xoxo

Carondelet House Wedding Photography | Tamara and Aaron

There is definitely something about getting married at Carondelet House. Perhaps it’s the unbelievably delectable food created specifically for Carondelet House by the catering staff at Tres LA (who always surprise us with their imaginative cuisine) or maybe it’s the rustic old LA feeling you get from the first moment you walk into the foyer. There is no escaping the charm of this hidden downtown Los Angeles wedding and event venue gem complete with its exposed beamed ceiling and antique Spanish tiling. It is easy to create amazing photographic wedding memories and such a perfect venue.
Tamara and Aaron are one of those couples we can’t help but love. Such wonderful people, they truly made our own team feel like part of their family!

As always, we appreciated the incredible efforts and creativity of Joanna Chong from J.Soiree wedding planners. Primal Flower sis an exquisite job with all of the white rose and hydrangea centerpieces with tiny accents of green. DJ Crash worked his magic on the dance floor. We also love photographing weddings at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. You can see how wonderfully it photographs.

  • Shelley Anders - Loved working with this bride. Your pics are classic and gorgeous! Thank you for posting!

In the lead up to Jordan and Ilana’s huge Orthodox Jewish Wedding at Vibiana, we had the honor of being their photographer a few months earlier at their lovely engagement party. I was able to meet both of their charming families and see all of the adorable childhood photos hanging on the walls of Ilana’s parent’s beautiful home. Faye Kellerman and Jonathan Kellerman are two of the world’s most famous authors! Not to mention two of the most adoring parents I have met. 😉 Adi and I were very excited to shoot this exquisite wedding at the Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles. It was a truly spectacular event and we were very excited to be part of the incredible lineup of vendors.

A note from the bride + groom: Next Exit was the first and only photography team we met. We loved their photos from the minute we came across their blog right after we got engaged and were so thrilled to have them capture our wedding. It was such a blast spending the wedding day with them. Our family and friends mean so much to us, and Next Exit made an effort to snap all of our special and fun moments with them. Thank you for the awesome photos and for just being awesome in general:) 🙂 Love, Jordan And Ilana

Hey Ho, Let’s go!! Cyn, a photographer of all sorts, originally from Plymouth, Minnesota, and Stan, a rocket scientist from Wolverhampton, England, met and fell in love. After several years of dating bliss, they decided on a Rock n’ Roll Wedding for 40 of their closest friends and the best wedding photographer in Los Angeles, eh chem. The day started early. 11am the guests and the groom loaded onto a fully loaded tour bus and headed to the Club Nokia Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. After a fully costumed wedding ceremony a la Princess Bride… “Mawidge is a dweam wiffin a dweam. The dweam of wuv wapped wiffin the gweater dweam of everwasting west. Eternity is our fwiend, wemember that, and wuv wiw fowwow you fowever.” And so on. There was a lot of dancing — bopping up and down — and a lot of Veuve Clicquot poured. The ceremony on the stage at the Club Nokia was the first of its kind, then onto a cocktail hour in the VIP bar, then a hop over to Disney Hall and a jump off to Grauman’s Chinese, back to the Sunset Marquis Hotel for another 5pm cocktail hour and then finally, a full dinner reception by the pool. A day never to forget. I, as their beloved and humble Sunset Marquis Hotel Wedding Photographer, should also mention that staying the hotel were Avril Lavigne and her crew as well as the final 8 from American Idol, all of who made it onto my long lens, despite their best efforts to hide from it. No, you can’t see them. xo

  • Voyteck - wow! absolutely amazing work! love your style!

It was a perfect day for a wedding in November, in Pasadena, California. The Langham Huntington Hotel in South Pasadena is the most wonderful backdrop for beautiful and natural wedding photography. The couple was full of love and their families showered them with support. The team of expert vendors were made up of some of our favorites. Wedding coordinator, Naomi Takahashi, owner of DNT Elite Events, is calm and cool. We love working with her and her incredible team! Lisa Cardella from Ixora Floral Studio created stunning centerpieces for the magical Georgian Ballroom. Working with expert Kelly Zhang and her team always ensures that our beautiful bride has the perfect hair and makeup for her entire wedding day. Lastly, lovely Chelsea Rowe, Senior Meetings & Special Events Manager at the Langham Huntington Pasadena, makes everything run smoothly on the wedding day. With 23 acres of meticulously cultivated gardens and historic ballrooms, this iconic landmark hotel is the ideal wedding venue in Southern California. If you are considering this space for your own wedding or event, make sure to check our their BLOG. Langham Huntington Hotel Weddding Photography.
