Lynda + John | Placerita Canyon Engagement Photography

In discussing possible spots for their engagement session, I suggested Placerita Canyon Park to John & Lynda. They surprised me by extensively scouting out their favorite spots in this sprawling park, and even spent many hours clearing brush on the trails, so their choice spots would be ready for pictures. Talk about commitment!

Their hard work certainly paid off, as we had an incredible shoot with them. They came ready with travel-related props, since, like Felicia & I, they too met while traveling.

Thanks John & Lynda for being amazing!

Corie + Kyle | Verandas Beach House Wedding

August 26th, 2014: Verandas, Beach, House, Manhattan, California, Wedding, Photographer, Photography Blog post by Felicia

Corie & Kyle live in Northern California, and were one of the rare instances where we had never met the bride & groom before the wedding, not even a Skype call. We were very intrigued about meeting them, and when we did, we certainly wished we had gotten to know them sooner, because they are AWESOME!

They have such an amazing energy about them, and had us laughing all day long. We often find that friends & family are a very powerful reflection of who the couple is, and it was so great that Corie & Kyle’s wedding guests, whether relations or friends, were a genuinely fun, friendly, and warm bunch!

Their ceremony, which was officiated by a mutual friend and included friends & family speaking, was one of the most sincere, fun, and emotional ones we will remember for a long time to come.

When a wedding day involves discussions about Tesla and Grumpy Cat, and toasts include references to Tina Fey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and space exploration, we know that Corie & Kyle are truly “our people”.

Congratulations Corie & Kyle! You guys rock and made it way too fun for us!

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

August 7th, 2014:

Venice, Beach, California, Canals, Engagement, Photography, Los, Angeles

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

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!

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!
