Another wonderful wedding at Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood.  Suzy and Harry thank you for the opportunity to shoot your wedding, I’m a lucky guy… being present for such a beautiful and touching ceremony even with a camera to my eye – it still finds a way to seep into my soul.  This wedding takes the cake for having the funniest group of friends in one place at one time – quite literally.  Too much fun… Wishing you all the best!!

It was a pleasure photographing Esther and David’s wedding.  It’s always a thrill seeing a couple surrounded by loving friends and family.  Esther knows how to throw a party and it was evident that everyone present was enjoying themselves – in fact, the dance floor was barely empty all night long.  Congrats!

Jeff and Stephanie were married at the Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood last weekend.  It was a beautiful small ceremony in the manicured garden courtyard, which during the winter, is tastefully covered.  As expected – the words were eloquent, touching, and spiritual.  Jeff and Stephanie put a lot of hard work into their own wedding and the decorations and party favors were just downright playful and creative gems.  Photographing this wedding was a blast.  Top hats, canes, and masquerade masks came out harkening back to the golden age of cinema and as the Yamashiro Restaurant sits perched above Hollywood and the Magic Castle – the night felt like stepping back into the bygone era of the starlets.  To view all the photographs from Jeff and Stephanie’s wedding please use this link.  Congrats!

I spent the weekend at a friends 50th birthday party up in Mammoth Lakes, CA.  Do you like to ski, snowboard, hike, or fish in Southern California? Then I’m sure you’ve heard of Mammoth Mountain.  Well – did you know there is a small, beautiful, rustic summertime wedding venue to get married at in Mammoth?  The Twin Lakes Forest Chapel is across the footbridge from the Tamarack Lodge.  My wife and I think “The Lakefront Restaurant” inside the lodge is one of the finest places to dine in all of the Mammoth Lakes area.  The historic lodge is intimate and charming – we’ve sat fireside many times after dinner enjoying a game of chess and chatting.  There is ample lodging for guests either at the Tamarack Lodge or in town at the Juniper Springs Lodge, The Westin, or in The Village.  As I own a condo in Mammoth, I am happy to be your wedding photographer and will work as a local.

Mike and Kathy got married at the Ebell of Los Angeles in 2007.  Also known as the Ebell Theatre (as it has a 1,200 seat auditorium), this 75,000 sq. foot wedding venue is a historic gem on Wilshire Boulevard in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles.  It is an architecturally stunning venue with a beautiful courtyard for an outdoor ceremony and the adjacent detailed ballrooms are spacious enough to accommodate larger wedding parties.  My wedding photographs of the Ebell of Los Angeles give you a sense of mood and style that a classic wedding venue can impart on your special day.  For further information on the Ebell of Los Angeles, visit their blog.
