I heart Tessa + Jay...seriously, I've been looking forward to their wedding day since I shot their engagement session in Downtown LA!

With Nancy from So Happi Together coordinating the day, Nicole DeAnne working the hair & make-up, & Jason Roger by my side as a second shooter, the day could only be amazing...and that it was!

Jennifer + David are two sweet individuals! I was honored that they chose Justin and I to be their wedding photographers, especially since we had only met via email through Angel Swanson from Events of Love and Splendor. Both Jennifer + David had experienced a ton over the last year, not to mention surviving the huge earthquake that happened in Japan in March!

The entire wedding took place at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey.
Nicole DeAnne was Jennifer's hair & make-up this shot!
jdw_002.jpgjdw_003.jpgStrangely enough, this is my favorite shot of the day...intrigued by the innocence and symmetry of it!
