Wedding Slideshow

Wedding Preparation

Starting off with the details – we used a Crystal Pyramid to create a reflection along the edge of the photo. With such beautiful natural light flowing through the windows, we pulled out this prism to add more interest to the image.

Annie came to the Biltmore Hotel straight from the amazing Kelly Yi’s Studio, prepped and ready to go. Her gorgeous lace embroidered wedding dress was a statement piece and we wanted to focus in on the grandeur of the dress by centering Annie amongst her beautiful bridesmaids.

First Look

We headed over to Walt Disney Concert Hall to set up our first look shot. These curved and angled hallways make the perfect setting for a moment like this – Annie & Justin were filled with anticipation and excitement and waiting for what’s around the corner.

Wedding Party

The pastel colors of Annie’s Bridesmaids were the perfect contrasting color for the sheen from the steel Walt Disney Concert Hall building so we used the architecture as our backdrop for the wedding party formals. Getting candid moments between both groups of friends was a great way to loosen up the wedding party for the rest of the day and get the party going.

Wedding Ceremony

First United Methodist Church in Glendale has some of the most stunning stained glass windows in the Southern California area. When light shines through the window panes, the church is illuminated with vibrant rays of light allowing for minimal decor for guests to experience the true majesticness of the church’s design.


The aisle was decorated with simple floral arrangements as to not take away from the grandeur of the church.


We thought we had seen it all, but this ring bearer strolled down the aisle in a remote control Lamborghini and it was the most adorable thing you have ever seen!

Wedding Couples Session

We wanted to utilize the light left from the sunset that was flowing through the windows and creating this beautiful cool blue tone throughout the church. We placed the Profoto B2 on a stand behind the couple and used the modeling light to add a warm back-light, illuminating them from behind while keeping the temperature of the overall image on the cooler side.

Wedding Reception

City Flowers did an en extraordinary job decorating the Brandview Ballroom to match the pink tones of the wedding.


Portos Bakery always delivers when it comes to quality cake design. They kept it simple yet sophisticated to match the overall tone of the room.


Thank you to Christian and the awesome crew at LA Banquets Brandview Ballroom for the beautiful venue and help throughout the night.

After a beautiful set of speeches, DJ Tempoe got the night going by opening up the dance floor. We love to showcase the motion and fun that takes place at Wedding Reception’s, so we dragged our shutter to create these motion blur shots.

We wanted to create a lasting image for Annie & Justin to cherish and also utilize the grand staircase at the Brandview Ballroom. The dramatic mood of this shot is truly the standpoint attribute of this image, with the lighting transporting us to a different time and place. Annie & Justin, it was an honor being able to document your love and story.
