It's always nice when you can work with your friends -especially while doing a job that you both love! Katy Perez was there with me to shoot my first wedding HERE, so it was so nice to be able to be there to second shoot at one of her weddings! Chris and Jennifer were such a fun couple! They didnt want a traditional wedding, they just wanted to have a good time with their friends and family! Jennifer had a friend at Luxe City Center hotel who was able to pull some strings to have their wedding held on the roof top -which has never been done before. It was spectacular! You felt like you were on top of the world and at night the ceremony was lit up by all the beautiful city lights!
Isnt she STUNNING!
Chris waiting to begin the First Look ! His reaction to first seeing his bride is priceless!!!
The Best Man handed over a ring pop when it was time to exchange rings! Awesome Idea! Everyone was crackin up!
You can definitely see this couple is excited to be husband and wife!!!
Lets get this party started!!!
This wedding gets the award for Best Female Dancers!!!
My favorite moment of the night -Sparkler Time!!!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
