WOW, talk about an Epic wedding!

The first weekend of October I drove up the California coast to the quaint seaside town of Cambria for Mike & Kimber’s wedding. Cambria is located just North of Morro Bay and down the coast about 75 miles from Big Sur. Upon arrival I was greeted with blue skies, stunning ocean vistas… and a wedding party that was ready to add “a little” excitement to a quiet seaside destination! The wedding itself was held at Kimber’s father’s home. This magnificent estate is nestled among countless trees in a very “woodsy” setting… and just minutes from the ocean. An endless array of thoughtful decor, temporary structures, ornate embellishments and colorful flowers dotted the landscape of this incredible property. Kimber of course, looked absolutely gorgeous and was a perfect compliment to such a setting.

There were many great (and funny) moments captured at this wedding… from the wedding ceremony that literally started without the bride present, to an absolute INSANE party, everybody came to celebrate on this unusually warm October evening. In fact, I’m not sure if INSANE is a strong enough word. From classic “air guitar,” to solo rap performances, to dress shirt sleeves ripped off… to even possibly a possessed dancer (you’ll know who she is, HA)… it was a night to remember. Enjoy a glimpse into this spectacular wedding! Lastly, Janet Tacy with Sandcastle Celebrations did a great job “guiding the ship” from beginning to end!

Stunning couple, beautiful location, exquisite decor… I could probably just stop there and let you see for yourself! That being said, on this somewhat warm-ish Sunday in early September I truly had the pleasure of spending several hours with Brian, Chloe and their lovely families. The setting of this wedding was the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Upon arrival, Chloe was the essence of relaxation… purely enjoying the many elements that all come together on a wedding day. Even more than relaxed, she looked absolutely radiant in her gown and various embellishments. Brian held is own of course, pulling off the classic “Bond” look with ease and sophistication.

If you haven’t had a chance to view the Henna Celebration a couple days prior, you’ll want to make a visit. Once again, Veronique Assouline with Veronique Events produced a jaw-dropping event. From the smallest detail to the grand scene, truly a site to behold. Please enjoy a few images below!

A few days before Chloe & Brian’s Beverly Hills Hotel wedding, I spent a fun evening photographing their Henna Celebration at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

I love telling the story of an event through images… and nothing is more “telling” than having a front row seat to a centuries-old, historical and religious custom. The Henna is a time-honored tradition for many Jewish weddings. The festivities are incredibly joyful, reflecting colorful decor,  festive dancing and eventually leading to the Henna ceremony itself. On this day, Veronique Assouline with Veronique Events did an amazing job bringing this special evening to life. Chloe & Brian and their families were so warm and friendly… such a pleasure to photograph! Please enjoy a glimpse into this stunning evening! And stay tuned… the wedding post is coming soon. You won’t want to miss it  🙂

I have to admit, it was challenging at first…… staring out at the beautiful Lost Canyons property and salivating over the sprawling hills and longing for my clubs as I gazed at the pristine golf holes. However, once I collected myself I was set to go! On this sunny, blue-skied day in August, I photographed Katie and Anthony’s beautiful wedding in the hills above Simi Valley, CA. Being that both Katie and Anthony are friends of mine made this day even that much more special for me to shoot!  We found a scenic location nearby where I captured most of the pre-ceremony images…… or as Katie described it a “trailer-park,”  since immediately upon entry, we were confronted with an RV area that was hard to miss (ha, ha)!  After that little excursion, it was back to Los Canyons for their intimate ceremony and celebration that was made even sweeter with some of the venues beautiful features.  I hope you enjoy a few glimpses into this special day, as it was truly a joy for me to document and be a part of!

Lauren & Marvin celebrated their wedding day festivities at the end of July… and I, of course, was on hand to document this joyful journey. The day started and ended at the historic Millennium Biltmore hotel, nestled in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. Upon arrival I was greeted by laughter, anticipation and numerous sparkling, ornate details. From that moment forward I knew we were in for a fun day! Aside from Marvin getting stuck in the elevator for about 15 minutes (yes, that really happened!), all things flowed smoothly as we made our way over to the L.A. Cathedral for the vows. From there it was on to Union Station across the way, where this gorgeous couple garnered quite a few gasps of excitement I might add. The party itself was held in the immaculate Crystal Ballroom and Marcia Vidal with Crystal Clear Weddings guided that day along with steady hand.. and a bit of humor  🙂 Please enjoy a few images below that reflect the beauty of this day…

It’s a Scotty Boy! On a Saturday recently, at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, CA I was honored to spend time with Jen & Jian and photograph this lovely couple’s baby shower.  About 4 years ago I had the privilege of capturing Jen & Jian’s stunning wedding in Palos Verdes, CA. In fact, stunning doesn’t quite do it justice! That being said, when Jen’s mom contact me about this baby shower I knew it would be a incredibly tasteful, joyful and emotional gathering. I hope you enjoy a peek into this intimate Nautical themed shower!
