Dominique and Roderick, March 17th, 2017, Cal State Long Beach Japanese Gardens.

Dominique and Roderick made their vows over the sweet lull of trickling water ponds, and celebrated into the night under the magic of the stars. Cal State Long Beach’s Japanese Garden was a beautiful, hidden gem and a perfect accent of romance to light up the day for this wonderful couple. The two were completely absorbed in the magic of their day and the light of their love. We wish you two the best in your new life together!

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!

Melissa and Ricardo, Oct 28th, 2016, Imperial Palace

Melissa and Ricardo ended our Autumn season with a golden glow in the air and romance singing through the falling leaves. October was one of our busier months this year, and we were so honored to have one of those days set to spend with this sweet and adoring couple. We ended the evening at The Imperial Palace in Pasadena, a regular now for us, where these two were surrounded with so much family, love and warmth. We wish these two the best in their bright future together!

Reena and Adam – February 2nd, 2016

Reena and Adam celebrated their union overlooking a golden sea as the sunset grazed the water and kissed the steep cliff drop off at this picturesque whale watching center. The most unique and beautiful part of their celebration, was the spice of Indian tradition that filled the air.  While we weren’t at their first marriage celebration over seas in India for the traditional ceremony, we were able to get a taste of this magnificent event that beat with joy and laughter at their state side celebration.  What a wonderful event it was, we can only imagine what the first one was like in India!  We wish Reena and Adam the best in their new life together!

Jay and Rowena – November 24th 2012

Jay and Rowena held their beautiful wedding ceremony and reception at the Hilton in Glendale. The happy couple and all of their guests had a great time celebrating their union. The reception included a complex and very entertaining entrance by the bridal party dancing to Gangam Style. Before the ceremony, our two-camera crew had the chance (and enough time) to capture some gorgeous shots of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready for the big day!
