I have fallen in love with downtown LA. This wedding was held at the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens, which truly brings class and convenience on the wedding day. Once I got used to where the elevators were, this day was a breeze. It was hard to take a bad picture of these two. Their wedding was beautiful and I hope my photography does it justice.

Hey blog reader – are we friends on facebook? Facebook is the place I am currently posting images to first, so to get the inside track, either friend me or like me (I don’ t like the term “liking”, but anyway…). Ok, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I had a tough time narrowing it down, but here are my favorites.
Dennis and Abby agreed to see each other before their ceremony, and it was a touching event.
Note to photographers: This was my first wedding using the lightweight but impressively sharp Canon 85mm F/1.8. The first one I got was a dud, but the replacement is working very well. These are mostly shot at F/2.
We went to the Disney Concert Hall to take some wedding portraits. Even in the worst light of the day, I love all the shots we got there.
I gotta say I LOVE these umbrellas! The hotel has a Japanese theme, and these somehow fit in very well.
I didn’t have a stream running through my wedding ceremony!
She had to ford the river to get to her groom…
The lobby at the Kyoto Grand Hotel is breathtaking. Such cool furniture.
Dennis’s sister sang a powerful rendition of “At Last” by Etta James. What a diva!
Dennis had a chance to show off his skills at “Slappin’ da bass’. He was really good!
Abby changed near the end of the reception into something more comfortable.
Note to photographers: I don’t have a dedicated macro lens. I get all my ring shots with a 50mm F1.4 with a 25mm extension tube ($80). It’s tough to use, but the results are amazing. I do hope to get a dedicated macro lens. Any suggestions?? (please respond in the comments below)
