There’s nothing I love more than a wedding on a dark and chilly December night (like my own wedding!). Rachel and Christjan were like two magnets, drawn to each other across thresholds and rooms in the warm glow of the Carondolet House in LA. For the most part there was no schedule or order of business. Just a wedding, dinner and dancing, in an open room with an open bar, and old friends. I had the pleasure of working with Kat Keane on this wedding, and I can’t tell you how grateful I was to be home in 20 minutes at the end of the day!! Yay LA!
It was such a pleasure to spend a nice, leisurely day with Rachel and Christjan in their beautiful town of Mar Vista, and in their gorgeous home, that admittedly, I was drooling over. How grateful I am that I live and work in a place where November looks like this! We lunched, we drank, we shared stories, and it was exactly the kind of experience that makes me so keen to spend time with my clients. Thanks for such a great day!
What a day. I’ve been really lucky this year to shoot a lot of weddings that my dear Huz has provided music for, getting to spend the day together but doing our own thing, in the most picturesque of places, with the most warm and amazing people. I feel very blessed to have been found by Clint and Eleanor through their discovery of my husbands band. And I find myself with the great fortune of living in the same city, and I look forward to lunches and dinners we might share together in the future.
I mean, look at them. They are so friggin in love you can tell even if you didn’t already know that Dana is the smiley-est person alive, or that Ryan is as genuine and kind as he is. I feel so grateful to have stuck my camera into rooms filled with love, the love of families, their love of each other, and the love of everyone surrounding this day. I can’t help but smile when I look through these images. It’s the kind of smile that bubbles up from a happy place deep down inside. So, so grateful.
