Diana and Sergio tied the knot at the historic and beautiful Heritage Park. The park is kind of a hidden gem but believe it or not it has been around since the late 1800’s. The city of Santa Fe Springs have restored the buildings and grounds of the old elegant ranch which provided an excellent backdrop for the day. Surrounded by their family and friends the ceremony was touching and very personal.  Nestled under the trees Diana and Sergio exchanged their vows. Of course there were tons of personal touches like a trio singing a wonderful rendition of a classic Elvis tune for their first dance. Later on their guests enjoyed the reception seated under the trees and dancing into the night. The flowers were spectacular and prepared by Magnolia’s Floral Design.

What a perfect day for a backyard wedding! Actually the wedding of Kelley and Jared was held on the beach in Corona Del Mar, California but the beautiful reception was back in Costa Mesa at their home. We stared the day in Costa Mesa for getting ready shots and right after that our wonderful spontaneous bride decided that it awesome to go for a jump in a bounce house that was setting up across the street for a birthday party. Of course she was right! The photos from the bounce house were indeed awesome! We soon may our way down to the beach for the ceremony. Our biggest challenge that day was the bright beach sun but we found a way to minimize the brightness to get some great shots. Then it was off to their home for the reception.  Kelley and Jared’s friend Kim and Sarah from the Love Riot handled all the coordinating, table decor, place cards, and lots of wonderful personal touches. Congratulations on your new lives together as husband and wife! Thanks for having us be there.

A warm fall day filled with laughter and happiness from the beginning to the end, marked Alessandra and Tom’s wedding. One thing is for sure, these two have some of the best family and friends anybody could ask for! Alessandra and Tom’s wedding took place on the campus of Occidental College in Eagle Rock California. One of Occidental College’s most notable attendees include former US President Barack Obama. The campus is filled with awesome spots for photographer’s to take advantage of and that’s exactly what we did. Here are a few of the highlights from the day.

Since the grand opening of the Walt Disney concert hall back in 2003 it has been a mainstay for photographer’s of all kind. The stainless steel exterior forms, which were in fact inspired by world renowned designer Frank Gehry’s love of sailing, have now become iconic. Located in downtown Los Angeles the building has become an awesome backdrop for wedding and engagement photos. I have been excited to post this session because of the color and richness of the setting, as well as to show off Genesis and Shibli’s beautiful portraits. It was a little tricky photographing the Shiny, polished-metal buildings because they’re highly reflective and can generate a substantial amount of heat. Our bride and groom were real troopers and hung in there for what turned out to be an awesome shoot. Congratulations on your new lives together as husband and wife! Thanks for having us be there.

One of the most unique places in Southern California is the tower at Victoria Beach. Who says that you can’t find any castles in California. This spot captivates visitors and have them wondering why it’s even there. The structure was built in 1926, at the same time as the Norman House on the cliff above, the 60-foot-tall concrete tower with a stone foundation has been a Laguna Beach icon for many years. It’s no wonder why so many Southern California photographers flock to this beautiful spot. Monique and Austin are huge beach fans so this location for their engagement session was just what the doctor ordered for them.

We were surrounded by an incredible bunch of people for Katlin and Jack’s wedding. One thing is for sure, Katlin and Jack have some of the best family and friends anybody could ask for! I already knew that Katlin’s family was going to be awesome because I’ve photographed Katlin’s older sibling’s weddings in the past. We started at the Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach where we photographed all the little preparation details.  The hotel was a perfect place to do all the bridal party photos as well as the first look. We knocked those out and then headed to the beautiful Sea Cliff Country Club in Huntington Beach for the ceremony. Sea Cliff Country Club is less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean, not far from the historic Huntington Beach Pier. Sea Cliff Country Club is an absolutely beautiful location that provided an awesome backdrop for the wedding. Thanks to the wonderful staff there at Sea Cliff for making this an incredible experience. Katlin and Jack, we are so happy we got to share your special day with you and wish you many years of happiness!

Matthew and Vanessa tied the knot on a hazy lazy Southern California day.  We started the day at The Christ Cathedral campus. A world-famous landmark for people of many faiths, the former Crystal Cathedral was synonymous with Rev. Robert Schuller and his “Hour of Power” television.  Then it was off to the Vintage Rose for the reception.  The Vintage Rose is truly a diamond in the rough with it’s unique ambience. We got some great shots of the newlyweds on the beautiful classic furniture that adorned the room. Congratulations on your new lives together as husband and wife! Thanks for inviting us along for the ride.

On a day that started with rain but then progressed to a classic California overcast Saturday, Kate and Michael braved the elements and tied the knot. Situated in the shadows of the Santa Susana mountains Wood Ranch Golf Club was the perfect choice for them to do their nuptials. The staff made sure everyone would remain dry by moving the ceremony indoors. After Kate and Michael exchanged their vows we did some fun umbrella wedding party photos around the grounds of the golf course. We are so happy we got to share your special day with you and wish you many years of happiness!

Marie and Nathan were married at one of the most romantic, historic venues nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains. Padua Hills theatre in Claremont, California is one of the most beautiful locations in Southern California.  Surrounded by family and friends the ceremony was original and very personal. We wrapped up the reception at an outstanding Italian restaurant where the wine was flowing and everyone enjoyed the flavors of Italy. Buon appetite!

Kristine and Christopher were married at the historic and very cool Motte Museum in Menifee one of the most unique locations in California. Barn weddings have never been more popular and the Motte Museum is full of the rustic country charm that brides love. Surrounded by their family and friends the ceremony was touching and very personal.  Kristine and Christopher and their guests then enjoyed the reception seated under the barn roof filled with beautiful classic cars from every decade.
