who doesn’t adore a vineyard wedding done right?

sabrina + matt are that infectiously happy couple. there was so much joy felt throughout the entire day i spent with them. as i was shooting her in the bridal suite, she couldn’t stop smiling + laughing + i, in turn, couldn’t stop smiling myself. i just felt so much happiness being around them + their dearest friends + loved ones.

highlights were a first look under a archway covered in vines, a ceremony painted by the summer sunshine, portraits in the vineyards as the sun tucked into the mountains + donuts in leu of cake.

all the makings of a perfect day.

I loved sharing their day and witnesses their love story.

Having talented couples is so exciting! I shot this couples lovely wedding up in the canyon hills at Tree People  where they were drenched in love, sunshine and nature. They came back to me asking to do a shoot for their upcoming music duo project 'Blue Hearts' and I couldn't think of a better place the the urban, hipster Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles. One of my favorite 'oldie but goodie' movies is Once so I played with the main movie poster since we had the street open in the morning. We were able to utilize the awesome graffiti, signs + urban vibes in the area. It's notable that we all enjoyed vegan pancakes afterwards ...
