Malibu West Beach Club Wedding | Laura and Cory


The connection between these two was so beautiful to see while Laura and Cory celebrated their wedding at Malibu West Beach Club. These two have been together for about ten years and to see them marry and enjoy their wedding was simply a joy. We were anticipating this wedding pretty much all year since we photographed their engagement session at Carbon Canyon Regional Park and to see them with the same energy, excitement and happiness as we saw during their engagement session, was priceless. 

The whole wedding day was so relaxed and easygoing and as hard as she tried, Laura just could not be demanding. She was so happy throughout the whole day and was such a pleasure to photograph. 

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed photographing them! 

Congrats you two!!

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!


Venice Beach Bridal Portraits | Jules and John Preview

Last week we had the distinct privilege and honor to photograph Jules and John's intimate wedding and reception in Beverly Hills. However, before that, we headed out to Venice Beach for some fun and romantic bridal portraits in the early morning in and around the Venice Beach Boardwalk. 

Here are a few previews of their morning session!

Enjoy and stay tuned for the rest!


A little bit of fun at their beloved Tennis Court #11

It's not Venice Beach unless we get it on video, right?! Haha!

Los Angeles Wedding Photography | Araceli and Jose

What a blessing it was to be part of Araceli & Jose's wedding celebration.  We knew right from the moment we met for their engagement session how much love they had for one another and how important family was to both of them.

As in many cultures, weddings bring on many family traditions, and Araceli & Jose's wedding was filled with it.  Araceli's family welcomed their unity with 3 days of celebration, surprising the couple the day prior to their wedding day with festivities.  On the day of their wedding, Araceli & Jose married at St. Joseph's Catholic Church where they shared their love for one another with many friends, relatives and God.  They finished off day 3 with more celebrating and fun!

Needless to say it was nothing short of amazing for the happy couple.    More tradition's and memories were made at their reception, which included an awesome first dance (you know it's going to be awesome when part of their first dance includes Pharrell's song: Happy), surprise vocal performance by our groom, traditional la vivora de la mar, performances by family members, full mariachi band, a live banda, and so much more.

Araceli & Jose thank you for allowing us be part of such a special moment in your lives.  We look forward to celebrating many more milestones with you and your family.
