Los Angeles Wedding Photography bio picture
  • About Me

    I became fascinated with photography at an early age, thanks to my father. It wasn’t his photographic skill that inspired me, though, since my dad was not a very good photographer. We would always joke how people in his photos would have plants and trees growing out of their heads.

    It was actually my father’s camera that captured my interest. I loved the way it felt in my hands — all those cool buttons and controls. It intrigued me. I was also amazed at how it could be used to create these awesome images.

    MY STORY CONTINUED...

Santa Barbara Wedding

Jennifer and Michael were recently married at the beautiful First United Methodist Church in Santa Barbara California. After the ceremony we headed over to the S.B. Courthouse where we photographed the wedding party along with Jennifer and Michael. We then all hopped on a trolley back to Riviera Mansion at the The University Club where guests were waiting to welcome the bride and groom. A fun filled reception followed with guests enjoying great food, wine and dancing! The evening ended with a sparkler exit. Here are some images form this wonderful day:

Rustic Camarillo Ranch Wedding

Rustic Camarillo Ranch Wedding

The stunning Camarillo Ranch House was the backdrop for Nadia and Ali’s recent wedding. This wedding featured some special surprises including the bride arriving on her horse for the ceremony and a chef flown in from Boston to prepare dinner for all the guests. (The food was amazing – best short ribs I have ever tasted).

Ironically  Nadia and Ali are both from the “Windy City” – Chicago and just to make them feel at home the wind was certainly blowing during the day. The red barn at the Camarillo Ranch House was a welcome retreat for guests to enjoy a wonderful reception.

Here are some images from this fun filled rustic Camarillo Ranch wedding:

The Ebell of Los Angeles

The Ebell of Los Angeles

 

Our first wedding of 2015 was held at The Ebell of Los Angeles last month. Sarah and Michael’s wedding was visually stunning and elegant. The Ebell of Los Angeles invokes romantic feelings of years past – hence many of the images below are presented in black and white.

The ceremony was epic with the bride walking down an amazing staircase where her father was waiting. After the ceremony the guests were treated to an amazing cocktail hour while the main ballroom was transformed into something from a Hollywood movie, including extra long kings tables surrounded the dance floor. Enough talking – here are some of my favorite images from the day:

CeCe and Cesar’s Wedding

I recently photographed CeCe and Cesar’s wedding here in Santa Clarita with a reception at the Newhall Mansion in Piru. One of the highlights from the day was the brides custom made dress – it was replica of the dress that Jacqueline Kennedy wore at her wedding in 1953. CeCe looked absolutely stunning in this gown.

Here are some of my favorites images:
