This beautifully elegant wedding at Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles, CA is one that I’m really excited to share. You might remember Joanna and Eli from their engagement session in Laguna Beach. I had so much fun getting to know them and I was really excited to photograph their wedding because they have amazing chemistry. They make each other laugh and are obviously a great fit. I also love the Joanna, Eli and I all share a love of Miniature Dachshunds. Whenever I needed to Joanna to laugh for photos, all I had to do was say “wiener dogs” and she would crack up.
Hillcrest Country Club created a beautiful backdrop. The photos that we took of Eli and Joanna at sunset are some of my favorite. We had such pretty light and I loved how they turned out. To help you learn a little more about this adorable couple, I asked Joanna several questions and I loved her responses. Be sure to check out her interview through out the photos. My favorite part of Eli and Joanna’s wedding was that Eli’s Mother Allison, hired a woman to create a painting of the event. She met us outside while we were shooting their portraits and took a couple photos to help her create the painting. Then throughout the evening she went around and took photos of important guests and added them into the painting. Each time I circled around to see the painting I was totally blown away. She’s so talented and it was so fun to see it evolve. At the end of this blog post there is a photo of her painting.
xoxo,
Jenna
Jenna: How did you meet?
Joanna: Eli and I meet through a Jewish dating app called J swipe. Basically Jewish tinder. The first time he called me he only talked to me for 7 min then told me that his phone was diving and had to get off. I thought this guy is an IT guy if he really wanted to talk to me he would charge his phone while talking to me. I initially thought that he was not into me. I was shocked when he call be back the next day and talked to me for 3 hours. I then decided to give him a chance and go out on a date with him.

Jenna: What’s the best date you’ve ever been on with each other?
Joanna: We have gone on so many dates. They have all pretty much been a blast. I can think of a few really memorable ones. Eli wanted to go to Cracker Barrel really badly when we we were in Leavenworth, KS visiting my best friend’s wedding.  We drove 1.5 hours in our formal wear into Missouri to go to a Cracker Barrel. He was so happy and we had the best time. We were way to dressed up for that place, but we couldn’t care less and we stayed till they closed. Another favorite date of ours was our first date. Eli took me to Kula Sushi and it was amazing. They had a revolving sushi belt and the two of us pigged out on sushi. I remember by the time we were done we had piles of plates at the table.

Jenna: What was your favorite part of your wedding?
Joanna: My favorite part of the wedding had to be our first look because Eli cried. It was the most touching, intimate and amazing moment of our wedding! I also loved my flowers they were amazing! Planning our wedding was a rollercoaster, and we occasionally butted heads on some decisions. In the end, we were so happy with how our wedding turned out.

Jenna: When did you know that you wanted to marry your partner?

Jenna: What do you guys like to do for fun?
Joanna: Together as a couple we play tennis, hike, discover new places, go out to dinner, and take our fur babies (our dogs) to the dog park. Separately we have our own hobbies. I love to run, and I usually run about 7 miles a day. I also went for a run the morning of our wedding! I also love to ride horses. Eli loves to play golf and lounge by the pool.
