Heidi + Kevin | California Yacht Club Wedding

Blog post by Felicia

Heidi & Kevin are very much into sailing and the sea, and they rightfully had their ceremony & reception at the California Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey.

Their ceremony, which incorporated Irish blessing stones, was one of the most emotionally-charged ones we’ve witnessed. Tears of joy were shed, and there were few dry eyes left even among the guests by the time they concluded!

Heidi & Kevin are some of the sweetest people we’ve worked with, and we were pleasantly surprised when they acknowledged us during their thank you toast, not just for our photography, but for being an example of a good marriage partnership. That was completely unexpected, but much appreciated!

Congratulations, Heidi & Kevin. We are so happy for you two!

Nick + Natasha | Oviatt Penthouse Wedding

A few weeks back, Felicia and I had the chance to catch up again with Nick + Natasha for their wedding at the Oviatt Penthouse in downtown Los Angeles.   It was an intimate gathering with their closest friends and family , and since I have know Nick for a good number of years now, I bumped into quite a few friends of my own,  including many of our Santa Pub Crawl buddies!

After the ceremony, which incorporated Persian traditions to honor Natasha’s family heritage, they partied the night away. It was a cool, laid-back, fun, wedding day, befitting of Nick & Natasha.

Congrats guys! Thanks for having us.

Mary + Daniel | Venice Engagement Photography

Last Friday we braved traffic on the 405 and headed down to Venice Beach for Daniel & Mary’s engagement shoot. When Daniel & Mary got there, we realized that they faced the same predicament too, and we took a little walk to the Venice Canals to shake off the “traffic tension”.

We wandered the waterside neighborhood for a bit, then headed down to the beach, where Felicia cautioned us to get away from the water as dark crowds loomed towards the end of the shoot. Thankfully, there was no lightning this time.

Congrats Daniel & Mary! See you in a few months.

Vince + Jen | Happy Trails Wedding

August 3rd, 2014:

Happy, Trails, Catering, Pasadena, Wedding, Photography, Los, Angeles, Photographer

Blog post by Felicia

We met Vince & Jen just a few months ago, where Vince mentioned that his brother William recommended us. We couldn’t recall his brother by name, and figured that it was someone who probably saw our work online.

Turns out his brother was the Apple Genius who helped us out when we brought in Rob’s iMac about 2 years ago. We were having issues with the computer after a firmware update, and William patiently tried to troubleshoot with us. If we remember correctly, it was Amy & Alex’s wedding that was on our computer at that time, and William asked if those were Robert’s work. Being a photography enthusiast, he asked for our card, and eventually recommended us to Vince & Jen!

Life is full of surprises, and we’re glad things came full circle. We had a great time at Vince & Jen’s wedding day, starting with their ceremony at Happy Trails in Pasadena, such a hidden gem of a place, before their Chinese banquet-style reception at Mission 261. Their wedding party was awesome too and so much fun to photograph, it made the 11-hour day breeze by.

Congratulations Vince & Jen, and a BIG thank you to William for the recommendation! Special thanks also to Kenny Song who was our tireless third shooter that day who did an amazing job.

Lauren + Kris | Aquarium of the Pacific Wedding

Blog post by Felicia

Lauren & Kris’ wedding day at Long Beach was an uncharacteristically cloudy day for July in Los Angeles, but that also meant beautifully soft light all day. We started at the Long Beach Hyatt Regency before heading to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Incidentally, their ceremony, where Kris left no dry eyes in the crowd with his vows, was the first ever to take place on the new outdoor deck, which was perfect thanks to the overcast day.

Congrats Lauren & Kris!

Anne + Andrew | San Pedro Engagement Photography

July 26th, 2014:

San, Pedro, Engagement, Photographer, Los, Angeles, California

Blog post by Felicia

Earlier this week, we were headed to Anne & Andrew’s engagement shoot in stop-and-go traffic when we got rear-ended hard on the freeway, and the impact shoved us into the car in front of us. Shaken but otherwise (generally) unscathed, we eventually lost sight of the car that hit us. While I called 911, Rob called Anne & Andrew to let them know, in case we had to reschedule: LAPD informed us that they were really busy, and would dispatch an officer when one was available.

Thankfully, we always leave for shoots with a LOT of buffer time, and after a CHP officer arrived at the scene, we sufficiently composed ourselves and made our way to San Pedro for the shoot, arriving well on time.

It was also “one of those days” for Anne & Andrew – including misadventures with accidentally-dyed pants – so we were glad that we could at least go ahead with their shoot as planned.

Luckily for us, Anne & Andrew are so comfortable with each other and were a breeze to photograph. Enjoying easy banter with Anne & Andrew helped me temporarily ignore the nagging strain in my neck, back, and shoulders, although that night I truly felt how bloody heavy my favorite lens is!

Thanks Anne & Andrew for the lighthearted shoot!

Dana + Andrew | Pacific Palisades Backyard Wedding

The 4th of July was Felicia and my 5th anniversary, but I sadly left my wife and headed up to celebrate with Andrew and Dana for their intimate backyard wedding at their home in Pacific Palisades.   The sun was blazing overhead, but the coastal winds kept us cool as we headed down to the beach for a quick pre ceremony portrait session. On the way to the sand I saw the pure Californian vantage point in the picture above we quickly stop and made a few images.

Once we were back up at their home, they celebrated their day with just a few of their closest friends, gorgeous details and some beautiful looking food.  Of course, it being 4th of July, it ended with sparklers and both Andrew and Dana in the pool!

Congrats to you both!

Reed + Katina | Sir Francis Drake Wedding

Sir, Francis, Drake, San, Francisco, Destination, Wedding, Photography, CaliforniaBlog post by Felicia

June was the month for destination weddings, as we flew from Sebastien & Liyi’s multi-day wedding weekend in France, directly to San Francisco for Katina & Reed’s.

We started their wedding day at Sir Francis Drake Hotel on Pride Weekend – which made for nerve-wracking ‘surge pricing’ on Uber – then headed over to Sutro Heights for their ceremony by the sea. We love it when clients make the ceremony their own, and Katina & Reed included references to Robin Hood, Princess Bride, and the Game of Thrones theme for the recessional.

Later that night, we joined them at the Boom Boom Room where a Phish cover band played a set list curated by the newlyweds, and Reed even surprised  Katina by joining the band on stage!

Congrats Katina & Reed. Have an amazing life together, and with Dragon & Damsel too!

Jennifer + Daniel | Pasadena Engagement Session

July 17th, 2014:

Cal, Tech, Pasadena, City, Hall, Engagement, Photography, Photographer, Los, Angeles

Last week I headed to Cal Tech and Pasadena City Hall for Jennifer and Daniel’s engagement shoot. Since they live in the neighborhood, they are well-acquainted with these architectural landmarks, which are also excellent location for photos.

As the sun began to set and we were wrapping up our shoot, Daniel asked what I thought about a unplugged wedding.  As many of you know, I am a huge fan of your guests putting away their cameras to be truly present during your ceremony. It lets them celebrate with you instead of being distracted by a device, and it lets me do my job best: capturing the emotions of your closest friends and families, instead of a sea of iPads (those look like cookies sheets in front of people’s faces), smartphones, and cameras. Better pictures, better experience – It’s really a win-win for everyone.

Anyhow, if the fact that these two are just fun to be around wasn’t enough, I am now completely won over as these two start to think about their guests’ wedding experience 9 months before the big day.

Congrats you both and I’ll see you soon at your wedding!
