Wedding Photography: Who Are We? -&- FAQ

I just posted a new page with information to my website, in anticipation for new wedding photography bookings in the year to come, and thought I would share it all below.

WHO ARE WE?

☽ I AM…

… intense about my love of art, music, & Los Angeles history. When I’m not taking photographs for work or for play, you’ll find me watching a band play in a dark bar somewhere or strolling the streets of Los Angeles, thinking about the power of Place.

… a feminist, a small business owner, & the daughter of a Cuban-Chinese immigrant who came to the U.S. seeking a better tomorrow. To be a business owner, like my mother, brings me great pride.

… romantic, but not precious. I instinctively search for beauty, but desire meaning & functionality.

… earnest & focused, yet easily recognizes when to laugh at myself.

… mischievous & always in the mood for a good party (my favorite kinds are house parties and motel parties).

… someone who wants to link up with like-minded individuals who crave to make their wedding-day experience their own.

☼ YOU ARE…

… thoughtful, inclusive, empathetic, playful, & adventuresome.

… someone who likes to flip things on their head & do things your way.

… someone who appreciates beauty in wedding photography but ultimately craves the captured moment.

… someone who makes loving choices, whether it’s the choice to be rooted in family rituals or throw a wedding that’s re-invented by design, you believe weddings can be whatever you will them to be.

… moved by the creative world & values authentic photos that trigger feeling.

… likely exhausted from searching for a wedding photographer, only to find more of the same  —  until now.

LET’S LINK UP TODAY!

Haylee & Sonia’s Post-Elopement Unity Candle Ceremony (DTLA & East Los Angeles)

Haylee & Sonia did it their way and eloped to Hawaii, just the two of them in paradise. After coming back home to Los Angeles, they planned a special candle-lighting ceremony for their immediate family and close friends as a formal act of unity. I met up with them in Downtown L.A. for some portraits at the perfectly-picturesque Walt Disney Concert Hall, before going to the William Mulholland Memorial Fountain in Los Feliz for some family portraits. Afterwards we relocated to their home in East Los Angeles for the drinks, the candle lighting ceremony, and dinner, all in the comfort of their backyard! I love shooting custom-designed days that are thoughtfully planned and meaningful for everyone involved. There are so many ways to celebrate and bring people together, so let’s party!

Cindy & Eric’s Joshua Tree National Park Elopement

We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of these two, and since this elopement has always been a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it on the blog today. Cindy & Eric already had an upcoming wedding planned in the mid-west, where they were also relocating for Eric’s new job. But Joshua Tree was too special to them and they wanted to say good-bye their own way, so they decided to elope there on the down-low. It was just the two of them, an officiant, and me as their witness and photographer.
