This weekend, Peter and Kelly got married at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. It was an awesome day filled with laughter and tears! They had such a touching ceremony that nearly had me balling my eyes out :-)

Kelly and Peter decided to see each other before the ceremony so that we would have plenty of time for pictures of them, the bridal party, and both of their families. It was so great because everything was running on time and Kelly and Peter even got a chance to relax before the ceremony! We took their formals at the Disney Concert Hall which I was very excited about. I’ve done quite a few engagement sessions there but this was my first time shooting bridal portraits there. The lighting there is always amazing..I love it!

Kelly and Peter, thanks so much for being totally awesome! I’m so happy for you and I’m super jealous that you guys are going to Bora Bora! Have fun!!!

I had such a great time with Charlene and Kevin during their engagement shoot. We met up at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica which is just a DREAM to shoot at. While not grand in size, the Viceroy has great little “pockets” to shoot in. I loved it so much that I think I want my home to look exactly like their lobby!

Charlene and Kevin were so cute together and were great little models :-) They make such a cute couple and I’m soooo looking forward to their wedding in November!

Here are some of my fav’s from the shoot..have a great weekend everyone!
