My favorite couples are couples who crack each other up. It’s hard to look at these photos and not see how much Ruzelle and Spencer make each other laugh. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed that hard during an engagement session before. It’s hard to call what I do work when it’s that much fun! When we first started chatting about ideas for engagement session locations, we were trying to come up with a location that had a lot of color. I love photographing color, and that’s one of the reasons Ruzelle and Spencer decided to hire me. We decided to shoot in Downtown Los Angeles in the Arts District. Spencer and Ruzelle spend a lot of their free time in the area and love some of the local food spots. My husband, Will, and I are both foodies so I was really excited to hear that they wanted to stop at Pie Hole. Pie Hole is a pie shop that serves tasty, tasty pies.
I think that one of the coolest parts about living in Los Angeles is the abundance of famous and unique wedding venues. Mark and Don selected the Houdini Mansion as their wedding venue and didn’t think that they would be able to get their ideal date of Halloween. To their surprise and delight, when they checked it was actually available.
Every now and then a wedding comes along that I absolutely cannot wait to share! I love everything about this quirky wedding. Hayley and Nick had their party animal themed wedding at the Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles. When they first approached me to shoot their wedding I was so excited because I’ve wanted to shoot at the Smog Shoppe before we even had ever moved to Los Angeles. I had noticed it featured on several of my favorite wedding blogs that I follow and loved the eclectic and vintage decor and thought it was such a cool idea to turn an old smog mechanic shop into a really cool event venue.
I have so many great things to say about Rachel and Ben. They are the sweetest couple and their friends and family have been some of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with. Before the wedding, Rachel, Ben and I discussed what they were looking for via lots of emails because the live in NYC. After hearing about their venue and doing a little research on it, I learned it’s a fairly new venue in Los Angeles. Wattles Mansion,
I LOVE DISNEYLAND! When Jared and Karen approached me about photographing their engagement session at Disneyland I was so excited! I mean can you think of a more fun location?
