I had been looking forward to this wedding for quite awhile!  I met with Meghan & Tim over a year prior to their wedding and seriously couldn’t wait for their big day to arrive… And arrive it did, with style, substance and immaculate details. The wedding venue was the sophisticated Los Angeles landmark known as the  California Club. This club has a presidential, old-world feel. It boasts fine antiques, classic paintings, ornate furniture, not to mention a rich history dating back to 1887.

It was at this setting where I had the privilege of  capturing this amazing day. I absolutely loved working with Meghan & Tim for many reasons, especially when you’re told, “Whatever you want to do, we’ll do it.” That is the best attitude to have, especially if you want stunning images that tell your wedding day story in a unique and powerful way. The day moved along in a timely, yet even paced manner that was reflective of the club’s “stay awhile” vibe. It also helped to have the steady hand of talented planner Jennifer Hronek with Joie de Vivre at the helm.

I’ve included a few images below that hopefully provides a window into this special day. The following are just a few of the talented vendors I teamed up with. Thanks for stopping by!  Danny Baker | Epic Imagery

There’s nothing better than a beautiful day on a Sunday afternoon in the Fall! Add in a fun-filled family session and it gets even better. Recently I had the pleasure of photographing the Trujillo family lakeside in the city of Valencia, CA. This was a special session because I know Mat and his lovely family on a personal level, which is really my aim with all my clients. Creating an atmosphere of comfort and fun allows true personalities to shine, especially with the kiddos. As a photographer I’m drawn to real moments and non-contrived images. Ultimately, I strive to capture this in all my sessions!

Please enjoy a few of my favorite images below!

I had such a memorable time in San Francisco recently. Not only was it Fleet Week, where the U.S. military gets to show off it’s latest & greatest, but it was also Laurie & Reid’s engagement session as well. I personally have been to the city of San Francisco numerous times over the years, but I’ve never seen anything like this… the city was literally buzzing, actually “thundering” was more like it! I’ve never done a shoot where I had to yell to make myself heard above screaming fighter jets. That aside, there were many times when I thought that they made the moment even MORE powerful!

All of this added up to an energetic, fun afternoon! It was a joy to capture intimate moments and striking images of Laurie & Reid… which was actually REALLY easy. The excitement and enthusiasm that flows from the people I photograph really enhances my own ability to be creative and push the limits. On this day, there was NO lack of excitement or enthusiasm!

We started shooting in the Financial District, found some awesome spots (and some sore feet!)… what can I say, Laurie was a trooper in her high heels after what seemed like a 30 block walk! From there we drove around the city, dodging traffic and tourists. We found a killer spot with a nice city view and then eventually settled down at Crissy Field for a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. I personally can’t wait for this couple’s wedding in June of next year!

Please enjoy of a few of my favorite images below 🙂

Over the summer, on a beautiful July afternoon, I had the pleasure of capturing Meghan & Tim’s engagement session in Los Angeles, CA. We started shooting at the historic Hollywood Bowl, after receiving special permission to explore it’s vast grounds. From there we ventured off to LACMA. Talk about a fun afternoon!

On the photography end, these two locations were perfect for the aesthetic features I’m drawn to: architectural elements such as leading lines, patterns, textures and bold colors. Working with Meghan & Tim reminded me of why I LOVE shooting weddings/engagements. Add in the simple element of a deep love for each other and the willingness to do pretty much anything I asked… and you’ve got a winning formula  🙂

On a vintage August day in Los Angeles recently, I had the honor of telling Robin and Edgar’s wedding day story through the perspective of my lens.

I was really looking forward to their wedding, especially after a phenomenal engagement session at Union Station and Disney Hall. If for some reason you missed it, click here to view! Between Robin’s bubbly charisma and Edgar simply melting when near her, capturing emotional and meaningful images was definitely the easy part.

The day began at the JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles for the pre-ceremony fun. Nothing says fun quite like the scene at L.A. Live! From there it was on to the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens for the ceremony and party.  From Ivy covered exterior walls, flowing fountains, wrought-iron gates and other hidden areas…I really enjoyed being creative at this venue. Not only was the location amazing, but the level of thought and creativeness that went into the many details was also truly impressive.

The images below are a few of my favorites. My hope is that they give you a few meaningful glimpses into a beautiful wedding. Enjoy!
