All of this great Southern California weather lately reminded me of this sun-soaked Malibu engagement session I photographed last year. Lindsay and Daniel were so fun to work with… a perfect combination of laughter, playfulness and genuine affection. We began the journey at Malibu Lagoon State Beach which was an absolutely perfect setting to start the fun. I hadn’t been to this location for a photography session in a while so it was great to reconnect with this beautiful spot. The lagoon itself is a nice contrast to the sparkling Pacific ocean right across the sand. The proximity of the lagoon to ocean really allows me to photograph different scenes with various lighting options.

Next we went up the road to Pepperdine University. The plan from the start was to head up to the school after the beach. This was especially significant since this where their relationship began while completing their education. It just happened to be that this particular weekend fell on the 9/11 memorial weekend… which created some amazing patriotic elements mixed with a certain obvious sense of sadness. I was a bit torn on how I felt, but ultimately came to the conclusion that love, freedom and new beginnings reign, even in the midst of tragedy. I hope you’ll enjoy viewing a few below!

Judy & Erez were married on a rainy, Southern California day and it couldn’t have worked out any better! If you have to be confined indoors for a wedding, the fully restored Alexandria Ballrooms in downtown L.A. is the place to be. Brimming with ornate details and old Los Angeles architectural features, this venue is nothing short of stunning. The cathedral height ceilings, crystal chandeliers, gorgeous Tiffany skylights, and winding staircases provided an endless array of backdrops to showcase a beautiful bride.

I truly enjoyed photographing Judy & Erez’ celebration and the style and elegance they brought, which are evident in every image.  They decided to keep things simple and planned this day without a bridal party, which really allowed the spotlight to be fittingly on them, their family and guests. Veronique Assouline with Veronique Events did an impeccable job, but there was no surprise there. Designer Liza Vill with Brides by Liza crafted Judy’s stunning form fitting dress with lace appliqué and the breathtaking florals were provided by Events by Sammy.

Congratulations again to this stunning couple!

It was such a privilege to photograph Laura & Steven’s Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey wedding last Fall! From my first meeting with them, to their killer engagement session in Santa Monica, I knew that their wedding day was going to be uniquely energetic. As the day unfolded everything fell perfectly into place: The details, exquisite. The couple, beautiful. The party, raging. Planners Monique Atwell & Shannon Berg with A Signature Wedding did an impeccable job bringing it all together. I always consider myself so very fortunate to capture such meaningful moments, and this day was another prime example. Cheers to this couple and their new chapter in life!

Here’s an amazing engagement session that I photographed last Fall! Due to the insanity of my schedule, I’m just now getting the chance to share some amazing shoots from 2015. I photographed Daisy & Aaron’s engagement session at the beautiful Huntington Gardens in San Marina, CA (near Pasadena) on a pristine Fall day. I really enjoyed capturing the energy, playfulness and overall fashion/editorial vibe that they were after.

After burning some calories over at the Gardens we set off for Pasadena’s infamous City Hall. Throw in some James Bond attire, a Doberman and a few other elements and you’ve got a pretty successful formula for a fun time. Take a look at a few below! Cheers to the wonderful couple. Needless to say that I’m HIGHLY looking forward to their Montage Beverly Hills wedding in June.

A couple Sunday’s ago I spent the afternoon with this energetic, fun-loving couple in Santa Monica, CA. We toured the area exploring the art deco architecture on Ocean Ave., brick wall exteriors and other interesting local features that makes Santa Monica desirable worldwide… along with the sparkling Pacific Ocean of course. Brittany & Josh looked absolutely stunning! See for yourself

I’ve had the great fortune of photographing some incredibly fun events this year!

High on that list was Kirsten & Nils’ Santa Monica, Jonathan Beach Club wedding. On a beach-perfect summer day, I began shooting at the elegant Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey. There’s never any difficulty getting inspired about photographing a wedding while breathing in salty ocean air against the backdrop of a fleet of yachts….while sipping on a margarita (ok, there wasn’t a margarita). After an emotional first look, we made our way to a nearby park in a tour bus that put all others to shame, complete with wet bar.

The ceremony took place at the historic Saint Monica’s Church in the heart of Santa Monica, CA, which made for a beautiful setting with it’s cathedral ceilings and stately columns.  From there it was time to get the real party started at the well-heeled (substitute with flip-flop) Jonathan Beach Club. The dinner and festivities were held right on the sand, with a front row seat to the shoreline. Planner Samantha Sisk, with La Bella Dia did an impeccable job bringing the various elements together to maximize every detail of this stunning event. The energy, playfulness and joy of this couple was evident right from the beginning and I truly enjoyed being a part of such an incredible day!
