Jane + Adam took a road trip from SF to LA to elope at the Griffith Park Observatory. The best chance to have an uninterrupted ceremony in this public place was just after sunrise. I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised when they showed up dressed to the nines at 630 am! We took some portraits in and around Griffith Park then headed over to Langer’s old school deli near MacArthur Park. We had the place to ourselves at 9 am and they had their favorite famous Original #19 sandwich – hot pastrami on rye. We ended the morning with a portrait outside Don Draper’s childhood home in Angelino Heights (we were all fans of Madmen). Head on over to Green Wedding Shoes for more of their story.
This is an oldie but a goodie. What better way to spend a day at work than following a gorgeous couple (majorly in love) ramble around one of your favorite Mexican fishing villages, before tying the knot over the ocean, and then celebrating with their closest family (plus some mariachi and tequila, of course.)

We LOVE intimate weddings! Belle + Pontus created their perfect ceremony on the very mountaintop that gave them the inspiration. They took some time with their officiant, who was a close friend, to create a ceremony that was unique and meaningful to them. They had a few handfuls of close family and friends fly in from Europe to celebrate. Their guests were taken to the mountain trail by bus, not knowing where they were going – only that there would be a wedding outdoors in the California sun. They took their time to enjoy every minute of their day, even as the sun went down, they were perfectly present.

We love it when we get to photograph the wedding of the brother of one of our other clients (Mel of Mel + Michael)! Lucila + Angelo’s celebration was a handmade community effort focused on friends, family and a ton of laughs. Lucila has an incredible eye for design and may even create decor for future weddings if you ask her! Angelo is a talented musician as are many of his and Lucila’s friends and family members. Several of them played music and sang. Everyone danced the afternoon away and tore it up like there was no tomorrow. Head on over to A Practical Wedding for more of the story and a special musical recording by Angelo’s sister and their grandfather. Thanks so much Lucila + Angelo!!!
