One of the greatest honors for a wedding photographer is to have a bride choose her wedding date based on my availability. Lauren was one of those brides. I photographed her brother’s wedding back in 2009, her grandfather’s wedding in 2010, and for 2 years she has been planning this extravaganza. She managed to be very calm and collected the whole day, and her Jeff did very well too. We did some fun engagement photos in Long Beach a while back as well. Here are the key contributors to this wedding’s success:
- Ceremony – First Christian Church of North Hollywood
- Reception – The Globe Theater at Universal Studios
- Coordinating – Mimi Events
- Floral Design – Rhonda Burton Designs
- Video – Cinevent Productions
- Assistant Photographers – Sarah Barnes and Kristine Ko

And on to some favorites. This was tough to narrow down!
I have a thing for “bride in transit” shots.
Their first look – truly memorable.
You guys look amazing!
Look at those eyes – they remind me of a disney princess.
That’s a good-looking group!
This church is used all the time in TV shows and movies. I caught in a sitcom just this past week!
A proud moment for dad. Since I’ll have a daughter soon, this is something I can hopefully take part in someday!
The reception was held inside Universal Studios, at the Globe Theater. They had a red carpet entrance and an incredible ballroom.
Look familiar? It’s Melissa and Walt!
We snuck out of dinner for a 10-minute sunset session. I highly recommend this if the schedule allows!
Themed wedding favors… very classy.
With a red-carpet-streamer-popper-assault grand exit, no less.
What an elegant and stylish wedding this was. Thanks to all involved, it really was a great day.
