Gina and Albert : Park Plaza Hotel Wedding

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

It’s pretty awesome when things come together just right for a wedding. Finding a couple that trusts us to do our thing. Shooting at a very cool venue for the first time. Working with a great team of vendors. It was just that for Gina and Albert’s wedding at the Park Plaza Hotel. It’s deceiving because, it’s not really a functioning hotel anymore. It’s actually a venue for all types of events and they shoot a ton of movies there. It was pretty cool when we were shooting and Tey ran into Ryan Reynolds! hahah. But it’s definitely one of my new favorites in Los Angeles. I just love the feel of the building and the shooting possibilities are endless. Congratulations to Gina and Albert and thanks for the trust. It was a blast! Here are a few highlights:

Katrine and Duc : Walt Disney Concert Hall Engagement

Katrine and Duc live just a few blocks away from the Walt Disney Concert Hall and so it was just the right spot for their photos. We were blessed with such a glorious day. The light was awesome and we had a lot of fun. Just another example of why I really love engagement sessions. Here are a few highlights from their session:


Jane and Elvin : Burbank Wedding

I had the pleasure of joining Jane and Elvin for their wedding in Burbank, CA. The Castaway Restaurant provided a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony and reception. They had one of the most fun receptions I can remember! Awesomely funny speeches and great, great dancing. Their friends are so fun! It was definitely a night to remember for all. Special thanks to Rengie Mendoza for shooting with me. Here are some highlights from their big day.

Christine and Shawn : Hakone Gardens Engagement Session

Friday, November 5th, 2010

It’s always a treat for me to go up to Northern California to shoot. I just love the change of scenery and the different vibe up there. I met up with Christine and Shawn for their session in Saratoga, CA. It was my first time at the Hakone Gardens and found it to be a beautiful place for photos. Great scenery along with really cool structures that we were able to use for photos, too. It was supposed to rain, but we were pretty lucky and it started to come down right when we finished shooting! Thanks to my friend Karen for coming to help during the shoot! Here are a few from Christine and Shawn’s session.
