Angela + Lysander: LA Arboretum Engagement

I keep coming back to the LA Arboretum, and for good reason. The experience always teaches me something. In this case, it taught me about my past self. These posts are always introspective in some part and embody the growth mentality I openly embrace. You’ll always find me in the journey towards something, whether it has to do with my craft or something seemingly unrelated that will inevitably hone my craft. There are bits about my journey I always enjoy sharing. Go ahead, ask and try me!

Liz + Justin: University Club of Pasadena Wedding

Following up on an engagement session from last year, Liz and Justin said their “I dos” and made it official at the University Club of Pasadena. When we stepped outside for a few portraits, we had palm trees and a curb packed with parked cars. I tried getting a photo without the cars, and some with. It’s obvious which composition I stuck with. It just felt right when it came to editing. To me, it doesn’t get anymore Los Angeles than that.

Erika + Spencer: Wedding at Bistro 45 Pasadena

Though this wedding forewent the dances and formalities we’ve come to expect in favor of food, conversation, and company, nothing was lost in the celebration of Erika and Spencer’s joining of hands. If anything, the low-key experience enforced how dear the couple was to their tight-knit group of guests.

I’m often asked what I would do in a variety of situations. Once again, at a less structured wedding, it’s watching the guests and telling the story through them.

It’s been nice keeping things local in Pasadena as of recent. From Bistro 45, I tasted and acquired new inspiration to apply to my own cooking. Not that I can control where the work brings me, but I hope to visit more local spots through my clients’ indirect recommendation.
