Last weekend I was able to travel to San Diego to photograph the bridal shower of my dear friend Macrina. Macrina and I met in college at Colgate University and now both reside in Los Angeles. Her bridal shower was filled with loving friends and family, including several Colgate Alumni. The shower took place at the Currant American Brasserie in San Diego, where the party enjoyed a delicious brunch and bottomless mimosas. icon smile Macrinas Bridal Shower | Los Angeles Photographer Thank you Macrina for such a magical Saturday afternoon. You are so loved and adored.

Bree and Stacey were married last Saturday, July 7th, 2012 at the Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax Ave. The night was full of love and family, and I am beyond blessed to have been able to document the occasion. The “offbeat” couple couldn’t have selected a better venue for their ceremony, as they were wed on stage. They showed a short video clip of how they met and why they love each other before the ceremony began, giving the guests a splash of their humorous personalities. Congrats you two. I wish you a long happy lifetime together. And thanks to everyone who helped out!

Last week I went on vacation to visit family at my old stomping grounds in Evanston, IL, just outside of Chicago. During my trip, I was fortunate enough to set up a fun family portrait session with my dear childhood friend, Stacy, and her new beautiful family. We chose the Baha’i Temple, a beautiful sacred place with stunning gardens surrounding it. Meet baby Amalia, not quite a year old yet but bubbling with personality. I wouldn’t say she was “all smiles” during the session, but that didn’t bother me at all! I love how candid babies are, and it was beautiful to watch her parents interact with her. The bilingual family just moved back to the States after living in Chile for some time. Congrats Stacy and Mark, and welcome back!
