Alexandra & Chris

I met Alexandra and Chris last summer and I first got the pleasure of shooting their engagement session at The Mother's Beach in Marina Del Rey.

Alexandra & Chris had the afternoon to themselves and I was there to document it

They got ready at the Omni Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

The ceremony took place in a wonderfully unique rotunda of Los Angeles Public Library's Central Branch.

The rotunda of LAPL's Central Branch is a unique and gorgeous venue for a wedding ceremony

The couple's choice of reception venue was as unique and as beautiful as the ceremony location.  The Edison is a wonderful venue built and designed in the old power plant in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles.

Dimly lit, this authentic night club creates a wonderful settings for a night of partying

Every corner of this venue is great to photograph

So many details, so little time

The cake is cut
A fun and fantastic swing quartet took stage at times and mesmerized the guests with their Parisian approach following in the footsteps of Django Reinhardt.

When I was done for the night, the couple and their guests were just warming up
to continue the celebration until the wee hours of the morning!

Vanessa & John's Wedding Day

I really cannot tell you how much fun this wedding was! I met Vanessa and John in my studio.  This laid back "white wedding" took place at the Mountain Mermaid Inn in Topanga, CA.

Meet the fun couple:

Let's do some details:

The First Look:

The ceremony was something else! John surprised almost everyone singing Pharrell Williams' "Happy" with the help of his strategically well placed singing and instrument-playing friends.  Then, Vanessa and John being established actors, their friends recited Shakespeare's sonnets and soliloquies.

 The summer bouquet:

The rustic details:

The happy couple:

Following their first dance, the couple invited everyone in the room to join them on the dance floor, and the love in the room was palpable.

Vanessa surprised John with a belly dancer:

Instead of a traditional cake, the couple chose two cakes and mini cupcakes.  One cake celebrating their union, the other one marking the date they have chosen.

My wife Jennifer and I had so much fun celebrating this beautiful couple's happy day.  May you live a long, healthy and prosperous life!

I think the trend of naming celebrity couples still continue....

While they may be famous, I truly doubt the level of love reach anywhere near the one that exists between PhoeBen.  Phoebe and Ben tied the knot last June and Kerem Hanci Photography was thrilled to photograph their union!

I think Phoebe and Ben's smiles are absolutely contagious
Meet the couple.

I love how the nervousness on Ben's face cedes its place to an amazing smile with a single touch of Phoebe!
First Look and how Ben's nervous expression fades away with just one touch of Phoebe!

After the first look, Phoebe and Ben were so relaxed during their portrait session, which in turn made our job very easy.

The pastel colors of the bouquet and the kiss on thebackground.

Color combination done right
Speaking of pastel colors, Phoebe did a phenomenal job choosing them.

Here are those colors and the good looking wedding party.

Details can be a lot of fun to photograph!
The Wedding Bouquet and the Wedding Rings.

This was very cute.  Both Phoebe and Ben are engineers, and their approach to traditions such as the unity candle or unity sand was unity soldering!
They used the soldering iron to unite their hearts in one giant heart!

Ben's Face Says It All
Here is the heart they created.  Ben's face says it all!

That sweet first kiss as husband and wife

Wedding chucks are still a popular trend
Chucks that had to be documented.

With a two photographer package you end up getting a great amount of beautiful candid photographs taken by the second photographer while you are posing for the first one.
When you book a two-photographer wedding package, you would be getting gorgeous candid photographs
by the second photographer, while you are focused on posing for the first one.
Two photographers are also a great way to get ample coverage during the ceremony.

There is no way I could hold myself from taking this picture.
I was running to get the first dance photographs when I saw these four little cuties,
sitting on the grass and having ice cream.  There was no way for me not to take
this photograph.  How one can ignore this?

As husband and wife, Phoebe and Ben had a lovely choreographed dance!
And the first dance of Phoebe and Ben as Husband and Wife. No need to pose for this.

Phoebe and Ben in their muscle car.
While they are definitely not posing, I did ask them to kiss,
after I put my video light under the dashboard to light them up
against the sunset in the background and the headlights in the foreground.
