This was one of the hottest (weather and couple) weddings of my 2014 season and it didn't disappoint. Tiffany and Len were married at the SmogShoppe in Los Angeles but they left their mark all over the city. With the all-star team of So Happi Together and my man Luis Godinez manning the 2nd camera, we captured one the my most beautiful weddings from last season. Also check out the Tiffany and Len over on Ruffled and see more from their day.

When I did my first entry on this new blog, I had a wedding where I did all the edits but something kept pulling at me. I had seen the classic shadows, the shadowed emotions and the love that needed no extra palette. When I looked back at Cheryl and Eugene's wedding, the same feelings were instilled in me. I did this wedding last year at the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica with an amazing team that consisted of planner extraordinaire, Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee, my 2nd photographer Stephanie Yang the flower queen herself, Ivie Joy of Ivie Joy Flowers. So enjoy my grayscale post but if you want to see all the details and the like, please visit Bridal Musings who posted all about their wedding on their blog today.
Cindy & Charlton make everything easy, from our dope engagement session in Palm Springs to their cool wedding in Los Angeles. We had the awesome backdrop of Hotel Wilshire and then the SmogShoppe to showcase their love and with the design and direction of After the Engagement, everything went without a hitch. This blog post will be portrait heavy so if you want to see the details, head over to 100 Layer Cake to see their feature. Also, a big thanks to associate photographer Kim Marcelo and tiny assistant (and awesome wedding blogger) Lydia of Ever Ours for the help.
After a months long stint in California for a bunch of shoots, I had an opportunity to meet up with some photo friends in Los Angeles before I headed back to New York. Two of those photo friends were a couple, Joe + Kathrina. I had met them a few years back when I had a double wedding weekend and each of them assisted me for one of my weddings. They were relatively new to the industry and myself, having a few years under my belt by then, I thought the best way to help them understand the industry was to always have a never ending drive and passion for the craft.
Seeing them grow since 2011 has been exciting, all the people they have assisted and all the couples with whom they have shown their honest love, truly reflects their desire for each other as well as their photography. So in my little room at The LINE Hotel in LA, we ditched the conventions and just had fun. The way love is supposed to be.
Oh these ladies.
