Kristy & Göker's Wedding

I shared this lovely couple's Engagement Session pictures with you back in April, but here is a refresher...

Kristy and Göker tied the knot a couple of weeks ago at Kellogg House in a wonderful ceremony followed by a bi-cultural fun reception. 

Kellogg House is rich in its offerings for ideas and environments for photographers!

The reception was beautiful, emotional and everyone present witnessed how these two young individuals couldn't take their eyes from each other.

Following the reception, we took advantage of the locale's beautiful settings and rooms and I opted for a nostalgic approach.  When two people are in love and when you tell them "try to forget about me being here and be into each other", there is no trying...

Blissfully forgotten in the background, I was able to capture the love in the bride's eyes

I let the couple be into each other and kept my distance and shot.  I was grateful for the groom's love for his bride that made him forget about me

Before sharing a few more pictures of the lovely couple, here is the über-fun wedding party!

Kellogg House and Mr. Kellogg's room provide an inspirational environment for wedding shoots.

Mr. Kellogg's room was incredibly inspirational.  So we took advantage of it!

The first of two shots that establishes the advantage of having two photographers.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds shared some time at the beautiful Kellogg House in Pomona

A quintessential reflection shot I usually incorporate to all my wedding shoots.

Kristy and Göker, I wish you both a prosperous and eternal togetherness in health and happiness! Thank you for giving us the privilege to document your wedding!

Kealani & Chad's Wedding

Do you remember this gorgeous couple?


I was happy to be their photographer for the maternity session and save the date photos and I had a blog on them back in June.

Well, they were so much fun, I had to shoot their wedding too!
(Besides I had to meet the little guy!)

Kealani & Chad had a beautiful beach wedding followed by an intimate reception.  I will let a few pics from the happy do the "talking"...


Hearts melted in the bridal preparation room when I had the below setup.

The beautiful bride.

The ridiculously fun Wedding Party.


When the shoes are off, it needs to be documented!

I think those smiles speak volumes about these three.

I truly look forward to see Kealani and Chad again.  Have a prosperous, healthy and happy life with a growing family guys!

Downtown Los Angeles Sunset and Susana & Jorge

I shot this lovely couple's engagement session in Downtown Los Angeles last Tuesday.... Here are a few samples from the shoot.

I can't wait till my wife and I document their wedding day at the end of the month!

We started at the Walt Disney Concert Hall...  While I do take the classic, cliché photographs most photographers take in front of this lovely structure, I also try to provide my clients with alternative frames, out-of-the-box ideas.  My approach is to put them in never-written movie frames.

Walt Disney Concert Hall has a lot to offer to photographers!

An engagement session should provide classic, traditional pictures along with alternative, edgier ones

Tango Till They're Sore in the streets of Los Angeles.

Unleashing the power of love within the couple you re shooting reveals the marvelous connection of these soulmates.

There are many moodier shots from this location with this couple, but I will keep those for their eyes only.  See you in a few weeks guys!

Take the perceived obstacle and turn it into an opportunity to creative approach

I ove to rack focus in order to add my subjective storyline to any shoot I am involved with!
