Los Angeles Photographer

Beverly Hills Civil Ceremony | Priscilla + Alfonso

Priscilla contacted us about a week before their wedding at the Beverly Hills Courthouse and let me know that the photographer she initially hired had not followed up with her and she frantically asked if we could photograph their upcoming wedding. 

With the intimate weddings we have photographed over the years, we understood where she was coming from and I told her since we were available that we would be able to take care of her and her wedding. I asked her what these images meant to her and she expressed to me that they would mean the world to her. 

She also told me her children would be a part of their wedding and I made sure to incorporate them as much as I could into their wedding images. They also created Priscilla's beautiful bouquet, her daughter's flower crown and her son's boutonniere by hand. The extra personal touches definitely made their wedding that much more special. 

After their ceremony, we took Priscilla and Alfonso around the courthouse and the Beverly Hills City Hall area for their family and bridal portraits. They definitely rocked it out and we couldn't have asked to have more fun with them!

Switzer Falls Engagement Session | Kimi and Daniel

Kimi and Daniel are one of the funnest couples we have met to date. And if you looked up Infectious Energy in the dictionary you would see their images.

Infectious Energy (adj): spreading energy from one to another.

And they absolutely Brought. It. ...all that and a red umbrella!

Kimi definitely brings out the love and energy out of Daniel as he came out of his shell and they were inseparable the whole time. You see, he was the one to pursue her with the idea of reconnecting via Facebook. Kimi obliged to accept his Facebook friendship and before long, they were going out and held conversations for longer than they realized. As their colleague turned friendship was in the beginning stages of a relationship, they realized how much they had in common and as they grew to know each other better Daniel had no choice but to propose for Kimi to marry him.

As lovers of the outdoors, hiking and nature they wanted to hold their engagement session at Switzer Falls as it's one of their favorite places to hang out and enjoy each other. And as avid lovers of the great outdoors ourselves, that's when we knew we clicked with them. If it wasn't for the cool temperature and chance of rain, we could have spent all day up there!

We're so excited for their wedding at La Canada Flintridge Country Club as we know they are going to infuse their own elements as Kimi did on her engagement session. With the love and support of their families, we're anticipating everyone to be celebrating Daniel and Kimi with the fullest of hearts. 

Check out their engagement session highlights and give them your blessings in the comments below!

As 2016 starts to ramp up, I wanted to put a Wedding Year in Review as it was a pretty awesome year overall. We had so many couples that trusted us with photographing their wedding and we are extremely grateful to be able to do what we do.

We're so happy to provide our creativity and talent to highlight our couples' weddings. Every time a couple chooses us to work with we are humbled with gratitude as each and every wedding is an absolute privilege.

Malibu West Beach Club Wedding | Marina and Jervae

We had the absolute honor and privilege to be a part of Marina and Jervae's beautiful beach wedding at Malibu West Beach Club. When we initially met, we knew their wedding was going to be fun and it definitely did not disappoint. Marina made for a beautiful bride and Jervae was definitely dapper in his three piece suit.

Their romantic session after their ceremony, was one for the books. Marina took ownership of her dress on the shore in the last few minutes of sunlight. If I could say so myself, Marina and Jervae were absolutely stunning and rocked it, like no other. 

If you missed their engagement session, check out their engagement session in Downtown Los Angeles earlier this year among the urban landscape. 

We couldn't be happier to see these two together after dating for so long. We hope you guys stay blessed and we wish the absolute best for you guys.

Enjoy these images and Congrats you two!

Three Reasons to Hire a Professional Videographer

 
 

There are so many emotions and elements that go into a wedding. These emotions and elements happen while wedding planning as well as during your wedding day. The emotions, elements and events actually become necessary, inevitable and uncontrollable before and during your wedding as they become part of your unique story.  

Many couples may feel like a professional wedding film is unnecessary to invest in, but as photographers that have been a part of many wedding celebrations, I can't begin to tell you how many couples have told us they wish they had hired a professional videographer to document their wedding! 

As a photographer, I may be a bit biased, but the images and moments from your wedding are irreplaceable. Your wedding should be able to be relived the same way you remember it, if not better than you envisioned. One of the qualities that we believe is in making sure our work is timeless, genuine and filled with emotion. 

time·less: tīmləs/ adjective

not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion

With that, I've put together three reasons to hire a professional videographer. 

  1. Most people don't remember the majority of their wedding day as it unfolded. Your wedding film is one of the best ways to relive each moment in a cinematic and artistic form
  2. Your wedding is part of your unique story. Most newlyweds say they highly recommend a video of their wedding to experience the highlights of the beautiful and memorable moments that created your day
  3. You can include friends and family that weren't able to celebrate feel like they were a vital part of your wedding story with a tasteful and cinematic approach to your wedding

I also want to present you with a few wedding filmmakers that we have had the pleasure of working with and getting to know. These two featured professionals take a lot of pride in their craft and I couldn't be more privileged to introduce you to their awesome work. Check out the previews below and be sure to visit their website for more of their work!


 

Brian and Candice from Ace Wedding Videography are two awesome wedding filmmakers that are truly dedicated to their work. 

Can you say live stream weddings?!

And if the three reasons I mentioned above are not enough, here are a few more benefits that set them apart: 

  1. Flexible and accommodating. We have packages for guidance, but we strive to make each video a unique experience tailored to our clients 
  2. We strive to be the least intrusive to our clients' special day. We want clients to remember their wedding day, not their videographers
  3. From our initial consultation to the final delivery. We will be there with clients every step of the way
 

 

Erica and Laura, from The Vision Field, are two of the most artistic and creative people we have ever met. Their positive attitude and openness to try new things are what makes them truly unique.

We are intuitive and transformational people who are well rounded in many areas and have travelled to many countries and connect well with people.
