Ivan and Kim’s Big Day

I cannot believe its taken me this long to put Ivan and Kim’s amazing day up on the blog (I blame all of the graduation sessions I have been doing the last few months). But it’s finally here! I was honored to shoot this wedding at the beautiful Tapestry LA Church with my incredible right hand woman and second shooter Lizzi Beduya

The rainy day gave the first look venue some incredible colors and tones. I wish every wedding has such fantastic lighting! And now without further ado… here’s a look inside this gorgeous winter wedding. 


Ariana and Nolan

Back in December, Nolan and Ariana tied the knot in an amazingly fun ceremony and reception in Highland Park, California. And ever since I shot their engagement photos, I have been telling the story about how Nolan actually made Ariana’s wedding ring - and not just out of gold, or silver. Nolan went a bit further than that… try a ring made out of meteorite. And he actually learned how to blacksmith just for this! Now I’ll forever compare every ring to this couples amazing meteorite rings

Oh and the rest of the wedding was pretty incredible as well, with one of the most fun bridal parties ever :) Thank you to Lizzi from Lizzi Photography for being my second shooter! 


Ivan and Kim

When my two jobs collide, I get to take photos of amazing people, in amazing places. Here’s a little preview of Ivan and Kim’s amazing Malibu session at El Matador State Beach. We did this two weeks ago. In December! Welcome to Winter in Los Angeles. 



Alex and Rima

I have been lucky enough to know Alex and Rima for years. We first met our freshmen year in college and I’ve been lucky enough to see their relationship grow over the years, culminating in this fabulous wedding from this past summer. This is one of the first of my college friends to tie the knot and it was an absolute blast to see everyone again and capture their special day! Alex and Rima really brought the best people back together again :) Here’s a short preview of some of the awesome shots we got.

And thank you to my amazing second shooter Lizzi from Lizzi Photography!


Emma and Taylor

This past June, Emma and Taylor tied the knot amongst an intimate group of family and friends in a stunningly elegant affair. Ever since I heard that Emma and Taylor were having their big day at the Smog Shoppe, I was incredibly excited. Taking a converted auto repair shop and turning it into a wedding venue sounds crazy, but the people at Smog Shoppe do an incredible job of making it an intimate and beautiful venue unlike any other in Los Angeles. And as always, I am eternally grateful for Lizzi from Lizzi Photography on her assistance as my second shooter!




Nicole and Justin’s Santa Clarita Wedding

The Mormon Temple in Los Angeles is one of the most striking rebukes to West LA development in the city. It towers above the buildings near it, but has vast expanses of grass, greenery, and open space. When I get the chance to shoot there, I enjoy the simplicity of the space and the ability to shoot in so many different locations… And luckily with Nicole and Justin, I got the chance to spend a couple extra hours there to set up a first look before their big day.. 

I want to thank my assistant Aurelia D’Amore for being such a fantastic help on this big day!


Karen and Arbi’s Big Day!

Armenian weddings are unlike any other in the industry. They are big events, incredibly beautiful, and immensely fun. When Karen and Arbi asked me to be a part of their big day, I couldn’t wait for the chance to experience the traditions and rituals that make Armenian weddings so unique. When the day finally came, it went beyond all of my expectations… 

And a big thank you to Lizzi from Lizzi Photography on assisting me on this wedding! 


Renata!

The ultimate compliment is when my friends ask me to photograph their family. Shooting Renata’s Senior High School photos was fantastic. Working in Eaton Canyon right when the flowers were in full bloom. Fantastic way to spend an afternoon…
