downtown los angeles // marvimon wedding // film

Marvimon is tucked away like a hidden gem on the outskirts of downtown LA. Its a venue that has a cool eclectic, upscale yet comfortable feel. Every time I shoot here, its a a visually wonderful experience. The colors definitely pop in this location. Which makes for some amazing results with my film scans :)

Jasten & Kelly had a heartfelt ceremony and they are some of the sweetest people you’ll meet! Congrats you guys!

Enjoy some of my favorite highlights that I shot on my Contax with Fuji 400H, processed by RPL (with tweaks of course by me)

elegant vintage rancho palos verdes wedding // film

To say that this wedding had style going on everywhere…would be an understatement…

Josephine Trusela Events did a gorgeous job with all the fun details and decor! This location was completely transformed into a elegant wedding with a touch of classy vintage vibe. Vince & Cheri are some of the sweetest people to photograph too! So many lovely pictures… that it was so difficult to choose a select few favorites. These are the film images I captured on my Contax throughout the day. I *heart* them!!

pasadena lifestyle baby & family portraits // pt 1

I adore the brain behind Papermade Design! My friend Elaine is so talented… BUT… she has the most adorable family too! If I had to choose my favorite style to shoot it would look something like this. Ethereal, dreamy, soft, and oh so wonderful coloring.

Some believe the best child / family portraits are the matchy matchy posed formal shots. But, I would disagree. By far, the most precious images are the unposed, organic and free ones. The ones where you just lounge around as a family and sneak in cuddles and sweet kisses when you feel it. For the little ones, the best is letting them explore and be who they are… because that will be what is depicted in photos. There may be some crying here and there… but hey, those are real moments too. I love photographing the silly faces and looks of confusion at maybe their first encounter with a camera. Then you can have a true representation of their identity, and personality at that very moment in time. Whether children are newborn, crawling toddlers, or running-all-over-the-place 3-5 year olds… .why not capture who they are and let them be proud of it when they cherish the images 40 years later.

A sprinkle of posed smiles of everyone looking at the camera are nice too, but far less real in my eyes.

Baby Elodie at this moment in time of her life… enjoys gentle air blown in her face and playful tickles… and especially having fun with mommy & daddy. At this age, most 2 year olds can easily stretch their legs and put their tiny feet into their mouths…an ability they may never be able to demonstrate again… haha

This is just part one… stay tuned for the next part of the session.  Elodie  is such a cutie…. try not to say “Awwww” I dare you
