Kymberly and Morten, fun, urban engagement shoot in downtown LA

Kymberly and Morten are getting married in his hometown in Denmark. Oh how I wish I was going to be there for their big day. Please please. But to show their adopted hometown of Los Angeles we went for the urban theme and headed to downtown LA. Everyone knows I love a brick wall!! Starting off at the gorgeous Union Station and hitting the street and ending up at a park near Chinatown for the sun setting. BEAUTIFUL! some of my favorite shots. Congratulations Kym and Morten.

Dana and Cory, Sept 5-6, Viceroy Hotel, Santa Monica

 Dana and Cory, Sept 5 6, Viceroy Hotel, Santa MonicaI am not going to lie. I was a tad nervous coming into this wedding. Dana and I have mutual friends so when she called me last year she she already had her mind made, I was going to shoot her wedding. Of course she had seen my work and new it was a good fit but there is an extra level of pressure when you are shooting a friend or acquaintance. On top of that she was having an intimate (20 people) family only wedding with a brunch to follow the next day with friends. This sounds easy but often smaller weddings are more difficult to shoot because there isn’t “much” going on. Luckily I had been to and shot at the Viceroy before so I knew I had lots of fun options. After the first 10 minutes with Dana and I saw how truly stunning she looked I started to relax, then when I took the dress photo below and now consider it one of my favorite dress photos, I really started to calm down. It was a whirlwind 4 hours that first day, don’t look for a first dance or garter toss but check out these kick ass (Dana’s words) portraits and more.

Cheers to Dana and Cory. Huge Congratulations.
