SOUTHERN-CALIFORNIA-WEDDING-PHOTOGRAPHY-WORKSHOP-RECAP-0001

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of mentoring an up & coming photographer who flew out to my home studio from Florida.  I really enjoy doing these one-on-one workshops because it gives me the chance to really spend the time and help another photographer with their business.   It is completely customizable to fit the individual needs of each photographer. Since Andrea is fairly new to photography, she really wanted to learn posing, finding the correct lighting, and how to interact with the clients to get the most natural reaction out of them.  I showed her how I compose an image, looking for that perfect golden hour light, and getting the branding image that will really make her work stand out from the rest!

We were also lucky enough to have Jon & Brittany model for our life style session and they were so easy to work with!  Such an adorable couple, and they are naturally playful and easy to shoot.  Brittany happens to be a super talented hair & makeup artist that I’ve had the pleasure of working with at a previous wedding. You can check out her website BRITTANY’s BEAUTY MAGIC. 

If you are ready to take your own business & craft to the next level, I would love to help!  Due to the amount of time it takes for each one-on-one session, I only take on a very limited number of students a year.  You can start the process by  filling  out the application here  then we can move forward from there!   Enjoy the photos!

LOS-ANGELES-THE-VILLA-WEDDING-PHOTOGRAPHY-0001 I have shot weddings from just the bride & groom all the way up to 600 guests. Jason & Christine’s wedding was just one of those intimate & cozy weddings. The wedding was filled with the closest friends & family, and I could tell there was a special connection between the couple and every single guest.  Their entire wedding ceremony & reception took place at an upscale restaurant, The Villa, located in Woodland Hills.  Surrounded by about 50 of their friends, Jason & Christine exchanged their vows in the beautiful lush garden. It’s a marriage 16 years in the making! Jason & Christine have been together for 16 years, and finally tied the knot this past week. I am so happy for them!  And thanks again for having me!

Jeff & Cecilia are married! I shot their orange county engagement session a while ago near their home in Orange County, CA. Jeff works at a private chef so I KNEW the food was going to be awesome. And it really was! Vintage Rose is a fairly new boutique wedding facility in Orange County, Los Angeles, and it was the perfect backdrop for Jeff & Cecilia’s wedding! In addition to being an awesome chef, Jeff is also a photographer, you can check out his website HERE.  Talk about pressure to do my best! I hope I made them proud.:-) Through out the day this lovely couple made sure my team was taken care of and I really appreciate it. I could tell they are a really considerate couple because there was a table setup full of games for the children at the wedding. Way to take care of your little guests and keep them entertained!   Their wedding started off at their home in Orange County and moved to a local catholic church for the mass. It was nice to see how much they are loved by everybody that came to the wedding. I am so happy I got to work with them for their wedding. Oh, and before I forget, make sure you check out his “pho burger.”  You heard it right, it’s a burger, and it’s Pho. Two of my favorite things. Check it out!

Shannon & Justin are engaged!! So Shannon and I….we go wayyyyyyy back. When I first started photography, I actually used to 2nd shoot for Shannon almost exclusively. At the time she was still shooting on her own and now shoots with Justin. They are both extremely talented photographers. I still remember the first time I shot for her at some golf course in Corona, and we just really hit it off. I was the awkward 2nd photographer who didn’t know what to do, and she showed me everything I was supposed to do right. My career wouldn’t be where it is today without all the opportunities Shannon gave me. I’m really grateful for that! So you can imagine how excited I was when Justin & Shannon asked me to shoot their upcoming wedding.  Such an honor to shoot for one of my closest friends on the biggest day of her life. I will save the story on how we all met the first time when I blog the wedding later this month, haha. Let’s just say I was there the day they laid eyes on each other. And as they say, the rest is history.:-) For their engagement session we shot at a local trail near Los Angeles. It has all the character of an awesome rustic session. Perfect Southern California sunset, gorgeous nature scenery, and of course Justin & Shannon looked great! They even brought their cute one eyed pug, Jack to the shoot.  Thanks again to Shannon & Justin for having me, can’t wait for your Halloween wedding destination wedding in Napa later this month!!
