I am offering free photography for one wedding to a person in a couple (or both) who was the child of an immigrant. The immigrant story is integral to my identity and I want to do my part to give back and honor that community, especially during such a divisive time in American history.

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.

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!

I couldn’t think of anything I’d rather do more than document my first-time in Cuba and share it with people who also are eager to discover more about this beautiful and isolated place.
