Ellie & Lloyd's Wedding

Ellie & Lloyd tied the knot at La Venta Inn in the beautiful Palos Verdes.  The light rain during the ceremony was predicting a gorgeous sunset.

Ellie is ready for the ceremony while her bridesmaids are admiring her in this shot through the mirror.

Lloyd is taking care of the last second checks before the ceremony at La Venta Inn.

I love to shoot at this venue.  It is an intimate place with a gorgeous view and the old building adds a lot of character.  The much welcome difference of this particular day, was the weather.  Cloudy and even a few drops of rain during the ceremony, it created a more dramatic atmosphere.

I sneaked the couple out while the reception was in process and shot tons of portraits during that beautiful sunset within a few minutes.  Here are some of those portraits.

I didn't have to work hard to make Ellie and Lloyd forget that I was there.

The sunset that followed the light rain was absolutely gorgeous.

The couple snuggles while watching the sunset.

I wish Ellie and Lloyd a happy and prosperous life together.

Jennifer & Puya's Engagement Session

One of my favorite places to shoot engagement sessions is the Venice Canals.  I know that it is a ridiculously popular place among professional photographers to shoot couples as I always bump into one or few photographers with their clients.

And there is nothing wrong with sharing the wealth my people!

Venice Canals is one of the most romantic spots to shoot an Engagement Session in Los Angeles

There are endless possibilities of reflection shots, racked focus shots and much more.  This place fuels my creativity.  And of course, this gorgeous couple was game for new ideas as well!

The other thing I love about Venice Canals, the beach and the Venice Pier are only a few minutes of leisurely stroll away.

I look forward to spend a lovely day in September with this beautiful couple to document their wedding.

Leslie & Abel in Downtown Los Angeles

A few weeks ago, I had a blast with Leslie and Abel, shooting their Engagement Session.  They wanted to do this in a location that would contradict with what they were going to wear.  So we had a nice consultation and I sent them a few samples of the locations I had in mind.

They decided on the downtown locations and we headed there on a Sunday evening.

First, I took them to an alley that I really love.  Downtown Los Angeles is surprising in very pleasant ways when it comes to photography.

Than we went to another favorite location of mine, which is only a few minutes away.  I shot another engagement session here, that was very different than this one.

Once the sun was down, I was itching for some more unconventional shots and the couple was game, so we went for it.  

I look forward to spend and document this couple's happy day in November!
