“Our future will forever solidify itself and withstand the turmoils of time and space…There’s no fault in our stars babe, just a black hole that brought us together.” – Powerful words from the groom’s vow that lift the hairs on my arm and warms the heart. Such a timeless wedding at the heart of LA. Although this urban warehouse is a 100 year old structure, it is the perfect venue for rustic style events. I really love the high ceilings with th uses of brick, steel, redwood and concrete. We even had access to the rooftop to capture amazing outdoor shots with the city skyline in the background. Another great wedding with wonderful vendors to work with. Please take a moment and check out their edit below!
Congratulations to this beautiful couple, Kim and Dwight! Such an exciting wedding capturing these two lovebirds at this hidden gem at the Villa. The day started at the Bride’s sister’s house to capture their Tea Ceremony. We then headed to the beautiful Blessed Sacrament church for their ceremony. Their couple/romantic session was captured at the Huntington Central Library. Such a beautiful place with tons of places to shoot. I wish we had more time there to check out the entire area! We ended the day at the Villa which was tastefully designed and planned by Kelly (the coordinator). It was so interesting how they combined their two different cultures in this one wedding that unified them both. From the Tea Ceremony to the Paebaek Ceremony…Such a smooth day and great vendors to work with. So happy to share this edit with you all. Enjoy!

Lovelee and Robert’s wedding day started in a Presidential Suite at Hotel Fullerton where we got to capture their getting ready process. Getting to know both of them, their families and wedding party was such a pleasure. So much energy and love was floating in the air and it was easy to capture it all. We then headed to St. Elizabeth church (which is actually my home church too!). Prior to the ceremony, I was flying my drone and actually accidentally crashed it on the roof! Luckily the staff at the church was so accommodating and I was able to obtain my drone back. Although it was damaged permanently, I was still able to get a replacement from DJI (thanks!). We continued our day at HillCrest Park to get their romantics and wedding party session. We ended the day at the Fullerton Community Center. It had lots of natural lighting peeking through the adjacent windows, we didn’t even have to use our lights! Anyway, check out how their story unfolds below:
Happy 4th Everyone! I hope everyone had a safe night enjoying our independence day with some fireworks. A couple months ago, I got to capture the sparks fly between Renee and Kenneth as their story unfolded at Universal City. It was a such a pleasure to work with an amazing team of vendors to capture their special day. I even coincidentally ran into one of my good friends doing her calligraphy for their wedding. I love all the details of this wedding! Check out their edit below.
Congratulations to this beautiful couple Lizz + Sam! It was such a pleasure and honor to capture their elegant wedding. Lizz and Sam was a lot of fun to work with. From capturing the energetic groomsmen to the cheerful bridesmaids, it was a pleasure meeting all 16 of the wedding party (I still remember all the 8 names of the bridesmaids too!). Although there was a forecast of light showers, we were blessed with only a short overcast followed by sunlight!
