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 Loves 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 Loves 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… 


USC Graduation Session (Theta!)

Graduation season is upon us! And you know what that means? So. Many. Graduation. Sessions. This year has been no different with USC grads keeping me pretty busy the last month. But slowly they will start hitting the blog… starting right now. Thank you ladies! 



Alyssa and Billy!

Last week I had the chance to photograph these two in the gorgeous Venice Beach Canals. One of the most under appreciated neighborhoods in LA, the canals are a fantastic place to get engagement photos done! The numerous bridges, waterways, and beautiful homes make it a perfect backdrop to take incredible photos. And when you get the chance to do it with such kind, and fun people as Alyssa and Billy, it truly makes for a great afternoon. 

Congrats to these two on their upcoming wedding!! 


Nicole and Justin

Even though it’s been a while since I last blogged, its not because I havent been shooting! It’s been a crazy start to the year, booking weddings and sessions through the spring. And recently I got the opportunity to capture Nicole and Justin’s engagement photos at El Matador Beach in Malibu. I can’t wait for their wedding this summer! And while the weather wasn’t the glowing backlit sunset we were hoping for, these images are definitely some of my favorite so far this year!
