So as many people know, or find out pretty soon after meeting me, I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I lived there the first 25 or so years of my life. I went to school there (good ole LAUSD), college, and even got married in the next county over. Southern California was my first home, and in many ways will always be home to me. So when I get a chance to shoot a wedding there, I am all for it.
Last year a former middle school class mate contracted me about her wedding. Briana and I, as I remember, shared numerous classes together as Palms Middle School. But for some reason I vividly remember our 6th grade English class. Briana sat behind me for at least part of the year. Isn't it funny how we remember the most random things about others? Anyway, we connected at some point years later through social media and she contacted me about shooting her wedding when she got engaged. I was so excited. We also planned an epic beach shoot at El Matador State Beach, which I plan to blog as well. But, I HAVE to share one photo of that now because nothing beats those California sunsets!
Their wedding was held in this beautiful hidden venue in Agoura Hills called Malibou Lake. I lived in SoCal 25 years and never knew it was there. But it was such a lovely location and their wedding was absolutely beautiful. I even got to see another old Palms classmate who was Brianas bridesmaid!
Here are a few of the many beautiful moments from Briana and Marcs wedding. <3
Briana and Marc, thank you again for allowing us to capture your beautiful day.
Also, a special thanks to the following:
