Kelley & Spencer :: WEDDING

It is such an honor to photograph a fellow wedding professional's wedding!  Kelley (of Picture Perfect Events) & Spencer had beautiful a New Year's Eve celebration at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills.   And when a wedding planner throws her own wedding celebration, you can expect nothing but the best.  Modern & chic, everything was SO Kelley :) 

Here are a few favorites...

Meredith & Ben :: ENGAGEMENT

I especially love couples who aren’t afraid to get their feet wet (literally!) when we photograph engagement sessions.   I enjoyed hearing their love story when I first met them and seeing how they are with each other, was a joy to photograph! Malibu was the perfect backdrop for this lovely pair.  It was an overcast day all over town but we were lucky to catch some amazing winter light!

Can't wait for their fab wedding by Geller Events in April!



Karine & Zohrab :: ENGAGEMENT

Sweetie Pie.  How appropriate for this darling pair!  One of the many good things about engagement sessions is getting to know my couples.  I love seeing how great they are with each.  Karine & Zohrab are both so sweet & so adorable.  I was happy to spend a Sunday afternoon documenting love, laughter and such sweet stories shared over pie... And the magical late afternoon light we had, just made it even better!

Can't wait to photograph their wedding and work with Fancy That! Events again this January!



Kelly & Kyle :: WEDDING

What a beautiful wedding & a beautiful couple!  Kelly & Kyle were high school sweethearts and said their I dos twelve years after they went to prom.  It was a joy to photograph!  I must say, their first dance was quite the spectacle :)  Friends and family traveled to enjoy the sunny California beaches and to celebrate with them... and they truly know how to have FUN! With live bands and an after party, there was not a dull moment at this wedding.  Loved all their amazing details - superb planning by one of our faves, Paige at

Geller Events.

Delightful Decor!

I love, love photographing decor & details!  Whether I'm shooting for a wedding or a magazine, it makes me feel like a kid in a candy store.  The colors, the candles, the chandeliers... I feel very fortunate to work with some of the wedding industry's most creative individuals.  Here are some of my favorite reception shots from recent weddings & events. 


Jernine & Sadoux :: WEDDING


Jernine & Sadoux :: WEDDING

I have the most amazing clients!  Jernine & Sadoux's wedding was exquisite.  From her Vera Wang dress to the suprise performance by Brian McKnight, it was great to see every single detail come together.  More than that, it's always a joy to photograph couples that are SO in love!   The ceremony was held at the American Martyrs  and the celebration continued at the Trump National.   As always, we were thrilled to work with some of our favorite vendors: Fancy That! Events and Tic Tock Couture Florals.  All the beautiful details coming on another post!  

Here are a few BW favorites to tell the story of their wedding day...


Arlene & Mike :: WEDDING


Arlene & Mike :: WEDDING

Each wedding is different.  We love being able to capture our couples' personalities & style as we photograph them.  Had an amazing time doing just that at Arlene & Mike's wedding at Descanso Gardens!  Gorgeous light, beautiful couple, perfect summer day...  

AH, we caught everything from the "first look", adorable flower girls, and plenty of hugs, smiles, kisses... this is what weddings are about!

Special thanks to Yingka of Master Plans Events & Design for making the day even more perfect!



Ani & Ari :: WEDDING

Oh what an amazing day! Ani & Ari's wedding at The Beverly Hills Hotel was nothing short of exquisite.  The decor & the details (coming soon on another post!) was a wedding photographer's candy store :)  More than that though, the classic elegance, and for me, the true beauty of a wedding are depicted on the images below.  Being able to document these makes me love, love, LOVE my job even more!

the beautiful couple... congratulations Ani & Ari!

Rebecca & Emmanuel :: WEDDING

One of the things I love photographing most at weddings is that connection our couples have.  Rebecca & Emmanuel's was larger than life! There was so much love in this wedding that it was difficult to keep a dry eye (myself included!).  The dances, the toasts, the laughter... you almost wouldn't want the day to end!  

Beautifully set at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, Pauline & her amazing Good Gracious! Events team created a very elegant celebration - emphasizing on the romance & the classic beauty of weddings!

Gorgeous light, gorgeous couple!

Amazing vendors to work with!  Flowers: Camilla Svenson-Burns, Entertainment: Leonard Neil Productions, Event Planning & Design: Good Gracious! Events, Venue: Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara

Brooke & Cameron

I truly am very lucky to have such gorgeous brides & grooms to photograph!  Brooke & Cameron had a beautiful exchange of I dos in Manhattan Beach.  Must admit, I could not hold back my tears!  We then went back to the spot where he proposed for some of these wonderful portraits and finally to Palos Verdes Country Club for the rest of the festivities.

Monique & Adam

They met in Paris, had their first date in Los Angeles, lived in Spain... and traveled.   I think it's so romantic they decided to tie the knot at the very spot they had their first date- at The Penthouse.   What a darling couple!  Monique & Adam are both very photogenic, very easy going & very in love...  perfect recipe for amazing wedding photographs!  Top that with all the beautiful details by Wedding Jeannie & sprinkle with the fun energy of their guests, we enjoyed every bit of it.

We had a blast shooting their engagement session and had twice as much fun at their wedding.   Here are a few favorites...

Kristen & Leith

Kristen & Leith said their I dos at the Virginia Country Club.  It was a gorgeous day and we were blessed with the most amazing light!   A day filled with laughter, tears (not a wedding without it for me) and then more laughter. Kristen was the epitome of elegance - not a bad picture out of the hundreds I've taken.  Together, Leith & her make such a beautiful couple. 

We had a blast photographing their engagement session. Their wedding was even more special...
