Manuel and Sarah tied the knot at one of our favorite churches in Los Angeles. The moment we walked into Sarah’s house for her getting-ready photos, we were immediately drawn to Sarah’s gown. The beautiful detail of the back was completely unique and unlike anything we had ever photographed before in Los Angeles or any other destination we have photographed weddings at.
We photographed Sarah and Manuel’s first look at Pasadena City Hall where they participated in a first look. You can see in the photos below why we love when couples do this. You are able to obtain emotion and moments that you would never otherwise get to experience.
Anyway, I know most of you all will skip this part and head to the photos. Enjoy!
Brandon and Inbar got married at the historic Camarillo Ranch House in Ventura County, California. We have photographed here multiple times and it always allows for a beautiful backdrop for different types of photos.
Inbar and I met on a winter trip in high school. I was a grade level above her, and was one of her counselors on the trip. At the time we were both dating other people, but that’s when we first met. Two years later, we reconnected via MySpace (lol!). Our first time going out together was just a simple movie date. After a few months of seeing each other we became official boyfriend and girlfriend on New Years. By this point, Inbar was a Senior in High School and I was a Freshmen in college.
This is a tough one for both of us! We talked it over, and really there are so many memories that are our favorite! Having dated for 7 years, 7 months, and 7 days being together, we’ve had the opportunity to go and do so many things together.
Hummingbird Nest Ranch is one of LA’s premier wedding venues. It could be because of the beautiful Villa that overlooks the fields below, or possibly the breathtaking views that are to be had overlooking Simi Valley and California’s beautiful scenery. It’s no wonder why Chase and Elizabeth chose this beautiful place as their wedding venue. This beautiful wedding featured gorgeous pastels, beautiful floral arrangements, and incredible moments from start to finish. Elizabeth wore a stunning Anna Maier gown with a matching one for her fur baby Scarlett. After the ceremony, we had the opportunity to go to the Villa up top to take some gorgeous photos at the very beginning of the evening. We loved working with Chase and Elizabeth and are very grateful for the opportunity to be able to document this amazing day for them.
I have to say that this destination wedding was one of our favorites to date. Ever since we photographed our first destination wedding in Italy, we have been inspired by many different locations around the world. This wedding took place in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Maria and Mario are from New York, and left the big city to get married at the beautiful Hilton Los Cabos Resort, one of the largest Hilton hotels in the world. When Maria first called me to go over her vision for her wedding, Jen and I were extremely excited to photograph her. She had talked about being photographed with a horse, which painted this beautiful princess and prince story in my head. We got up early the day after their gorgeous ceremony to photograph their portraits at dawn, and then got back together at sunset to do the images of them on the horse. We loved working with the amazing team of both American and Mexican vendors and did I mention how much we loved Maria’s stunning Galia Lahav gown? These images have been some of our most shared images on social media over the last few days, and we are very excited to bring you the full blog here.
Los Angeles Destination Wedding Photography: Michael and Jen
Brian and Alicia exchanged vows in front of 100 of their closest family and friends on the gorgeous island of Catalina off the coast of California. This beautiful gem of a wedding has been right in our backyard, however it was our first trip to Avalon. Our couple got access to the near-100 year old casino/movie theater to take some of their photos the day before the wedding. We had about 10 minutes to make magic happen, and I was so excited about the results from shooting in there. Take a look at their beautiful destination wedding photos below!
On December 25th 2015, in Yamanouchi, Japan . Brian Peters knelt down in a 200 year old Japanese hot spring at the Yudanaka Inn and asked me to marry him!!! I busted into happy tears I said YES!!! We then called all our family which was the end of our Christmas Day and the beginning of theirs, what a special gift to share.
One of our first dates We had a wonderful time walking around, stopping in at restaurants, chatting about our lives and the dreams we wanted to accomplish. I even say to Brian to this day, that day was magical. The sunlight was coming to an end and the cool night air still called out to us. We walked along the beach in Venice all the way to the Marina Del Rey channel. The night became foggy and the ocean waves crashed with streak of lightening blue. Which looked beautiful, even though it was probably red tide that caused that look. As we circled back to the main area again where we were suppose to say good night. Neither of us were ready to end the evening, so we decided to keep the journey going. We continued the evening as we watched “Adventures In Baby Sitting”. Which was one of my favorites and if a man could get down with an 80s flick even better. Four years later we took a trip to Japan and Brian asked me to be his WIFE 🙂
Both creative minds and can relate to each other’s vision and the ability to talk about anything. We also have the love to travel and expirence culture.
