Once in a while, couples ask me for recommendations on things like locations. In this instance, I threw out the Ebell of Long Beach for wedding portraits as a suggestion and they said agreed to it! The Ebell of Long Beach houses a beautiful interior with iconic tile work in the main hall. Said main hall lets in just the right amount of natural light through the ceiling and the control and predictability is a photographer’s dream to work with.
Nothing quite like having free rein due to tight schedules and people blocking in the way, two common wedding occurrences. Having this freedom at a private venue also allowed for outfit changes, not something we can do easily at an outdoor location.
