Jen & Eli found us a few months ago through Sari, the maid of honor at Lindsay & Joe’s wedding! Last week we got to meet up with Jen & Eli again for their engagement shoot at Monrovia Canyon Park.

We took advantage of the beautiful late afternoon light, wandering around the park till sunset, and looking out for bears (no such luck – just deer).

Gotta love California’s “winter”!

New year, new start: Kris & Lauren’s engagement shoot in downtown Los Angeles was our first shoot of 2014! Though we were both coming off the tail end of a bad cold, we had a great time with them as the four of us wandered around the sights of Bunker Hill on this balmy Friday in January.

Thanks Lauren & Kris for making the shoot such a breeze. We’re already looking forward your wedding in July!

Joanna + Nathan | Hard Rock Punta Cana Wedding

December 30th, 2013:

Hard, Rock, Hotel, Punta, Cana, Dominican, Republic, Caribbean, Wedding, Photography, Photographer, Destination

Blog post by Felicia

If you follow Rob or myself on Instagram, you might have waited in bated breath as we witnessed torrential rain just before Joanna & Nathan‘s wedding at the Hard Rock Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Of course, I, the resident ‘hurricane hustler’, took the blame. [See my posts on being caught in Hurricane Sandy here and here; and the next month in Typhoon Bopha in the Philippines]

Thankfully the rain cleared up right in time for the ceremony (you’re welcome), and we had the most amazing light on the beach. It was very special being one of the select few people besides their immediate family to have witnessed their ceremony. This wedding is proof that small weddings can be every bit as meaningful, fun, and full of emotion as a big celebration too!

Having experienced with Joanna & Nathan the roller-coaster of ups & downs that is wedding planning, it was amazing to finally be part of their special celebration all the way in the Dominican Republic. We had an incredible time with them and their families (they’re SO much fun!), and couldn’t have asked for a better way to end 2013.

Thank you, Joanna, Nathan, and Kelly & Damon, Gary & Cindy, Candice & Ron, Gary Jr., and ‘DJ Donny’ for having us!

So with this as our last wedding of 2013, we round off another incredible year. We are immensely thankful for every single person who has so generously given to us their time and their trust. We are deeply humbled and grateful for all that we get to do, and for all the amazing people we get to meet.

2014 is shaping up to be a year of travel, with Singapore, Japan, Kauai, France, San Francisco, and Northern California already locked in. Here’s to many, many, more adventures. Have an amazing year ahead!

Warmly,
Felicia & Rob.

L + J | Grand Tradition Wedding

December 26th, 2013:

Blog post by Felicia

The last time we saw L & J at their engagement session in Temecula, I got to sit on a handsome horse, and we had an amazing time hanging out with them both.

Needless to say, we were really looking forward to their wedding at The Grand Tradition Estate in early December, our second last one of the year. It turned out to be an exceedingly beautiful day, with perfect blue skies, amazing weather, and most importantly: two very awesome people.

In a nod to L’s Australian heritage, there was even a didgeridoo performance, along with a firedancer. Coolest wedding entertainment yet!

Congratulations, L & J!

Krystal + Dan | Santa Monica Airport Engagement

December 24th, 2013:

Santa, Monica, Airport, Engagement, Photography, Photographer, Los, Angeles, Session

Blog post by Felicia

Los Angeles has lots of amazing locations, and we met with Krystal & Dan at the Santa Monica Airport for their engagement session, which is our first aviation-related shoot. Dan had taken Krystal on a plane ride there, sweeping over the Californian coastline towards Malibu, before the proposal. Well done, Dan.

Krystal made arrangements with the amazing crew at Santa Monica Aviation, who allowed us to explore their hangar and planes, and we quickly learned to avoid being run down by Cessnas landing on the runway behind us.

Thanks Krystal & Dan for an amazing experience!

Ted + Kate | Wayfarers Chapel Wedding

December 20th 2013:

Wayfarers, Chapel, Wedding, Photography, Photographer, Palos, Verde, Los, Angeles, King, Hua

Blog post by Felicia:

If you follow this blog, you would have noticed on several occasions that we felt like we were part of our friends’ wedding days. At Ted & Kate’s, we actually felt like family.

After their First Look at Pasadena City Hall, Ted & Kate started the day with a Chinese tea ceremony that was very moving and full of emotion as they honored their elders and participated in Chinese wedding traditions. The cacophony of voices, festivity, and excitement certainly brought to mind parts of our own wedding in Singapore.

We then made the drive to Palos Verdes where they had their ceremony at the gorgeous Wayfarers Chapel in Palo Verdes. We ended the night at King Hua Restaurant in Alhambra, where Ted & Kate generously had us seated with their guests and, by taking turns, Rob and I somehow managed to enjoy most of the 10-course wedding banquet. YUM!

Ted & Kate’s day is our longest wedding of the year, but as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. Instead of exhaustion, we left the wedding feeling incredibly thankful for all the amazing people we get to meet, and are so very happy for Ted & Kate.

Congratulations! Thank you so much for having us!

Blog post by Felicia

Last month when my mom and brother were in town to visit, we somehow managed to eke out some time for a family shoot with Mildred & Kristian, in between the three November weddings and a road trip to Utah.

We had met their extensive family during their wedding, and knew they were a fun bunch. As we descended on Paramount Ranch, we were reminded once again why we always enjoy their good company!

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Tyler + Rebecca | Pasadena Playhouse Engagement

December 14th, 2013:

Pasadena, Playhouse, Griffith, Observatory, Engagement, Photography, Photographer, Los, Angeles

A few years back I met Tyler and Rebecca while I was on my annual Santa Claus Pub Crawl, they had dressed up as Santa too and joined us in our intoxicated wanderings.  I, of course was taking pictures throughout the night, and eventually, they saw the night’s pictures via Facebook.

Fast forward a couple of years, and I met with Tyler & Rebecca to talk about their wedding photography. Tyler turns to me and says, “If you can take amazing pictures while you were drunk, imagine what you can do sober!”

Since they met while working in Theatre, we met up earlier this week for their engagement session at the Pasadena Playhouse where we were escorted backstage for a few behind-the-scenes pictures before heading over to the Griffith Observatory for the second half of their session.

Congrats again Rebecca + Tyler!

Once upon a time, my buddy Iain and I used to lead our annual Santa Claus pub crawl every December. As it turns out, Kira, the sister of Iain’s special lady friend, was getting married, which… led to us photographing Kira & Adam’s wedding day last month at the Japanese Gardens of Brand Park, and Maxwell House.

We lucked out with excellent November weather: overcast but no rain, which made for amazing light all day. Nice.

Congrats Kira & Adam!

Cindy + Greg | Griffith Park Wedding

November 29th, 2013:

Wilson, Harding, Golf, Club, Griffith, Park, Wedding, Photography, Photographer, Los, Angeles

Blog post by Felicia

Earlier this month we photographed Cindy & Greg’s wedding, where we started off at the historic Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, before their ceremony and reception at the Wilson & Harding golf course in Griffith Park.

I love the art deco-inspired elements of their day, from the engagement ring, to the invites, and Cindy’s incredible shoes.

We traded lots of laughs over ‘sparrow face’ – because duck face is so last season – and even an extensive discussion over this severe condition that plagues many women.

My favorite part of their reception has to be the ‘poem lady’, Jacqueline Suskin, who would type you a poem on her vintage typewriter based on any word you mentioned. I said ‘Adventure’, and this was what I got:

Our call to continue
and create the connection
to all possibility
in such a wide spread
world. How we aim
to wander over all
landscape and figure
the fantasy of difference
that spreads over our
earth with infinite ease.

Congrats, Cindy & Greg! Thanks for having us!
