Mary + Eli, Santa Monica Pier, May 14th, 2017

Over the cliffs and through the sandy beach of beautiful, windswept Santa Monica, Mary and Eli laughed and danced and kissed their way around it all. We had a beautifully bright and colorful session with these two and can’t wait for their RAINBOW themed wedding in March! Though these two are already colored with so much joy and love, we can’t wait to see what magic they bring to their big day!

Maria + Guillermo, April 29th, 2017, Knollwood Country Club

Maria and Guillermo were one of those couples that were an absolute delight to work with. Their laughter and love was infectious to all of those around them, and seeing the way they just looked at each other was something inspiring. I have no doubt these two have a bright and loving forever to look forward to. Congrats Maria and Guillermo, we wish you the very best!

The Griffith Observatory, a proposal…

It’s always fun to step away and do something a little different, and especially fun when you get to capture the scene of the proposal! This lovely couple flew all of the from Vancouver, Canada to have a special trip together. What she didn’t know? He was planning on making it extra special. The Griffith Observatory, she told me through happy tears, was her favorite place on earth, and he now made it even more special. Congrats Jovan and Gabrit! Thank you for inviting me into such a special moment!

Jillian + Richard, Feb 25th, 2017. Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

Jillian and Richard tied the knot at one of my FAVORITE places. Calamigos Ranch. Filled with all of the glittering, twinkling lights, and whimsical woodland fantasy a wedding Pinterest board could ask for. The evening glittered with much more than just lights, though, as the loving couple filled the room with their smiles and laughter after they said their vows.  We were honored to be apart of such a warm and fun-loving couple’s special day. Best wishes, Jillian and Richard!

Lauren and Justin, January 28th, 2017, First Congregational Church

Our first wedding of the year! We were so humbled to kick off our year with such a great start and honored to work with Lauren and Justin. This wonderfully sweet couple made their vows at the stunning First Congregational Church in Los Angeles, followed by their joyous celebration. The evening was filled with all of the overwhelming love, joy and, of course, all the dancing, newly weds should have to start their new life together. It feels good to get back behind the camera! We are so happy for you Lauren and Justin!

#TBT To some happy times with Looking Glass

Happy Thursday! We always show you our happy, romantic moments, but we thought we’d take a pause to celebrate those candid, happy, over-joyous moments that happen in the throws of celebration. These are the moments we love the most, when nothing is left but an inexplicable amount of happy!
