{ shani + seth // venice canals engagement }

October 10th, 2014

Oh I could have photographed this beautiful couple around this pretty neighborhood all day! The Venice Canals are such an LA gem and I always find myself daydreamining about living in one of those homes, with their own little docks and of course a canoe (can’t forget the canoe!) We meandered around the walkways and these two just made my job so so easy.

They were married at Cafe Pinot just a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to share their romantic urban wedding next!

This amazing little family – I can’t even begin to tell you how overjoyed it makes to have been able to document so many milestones in their lives. I still remember my very first meeting with Dawn to discuss her wedding – we talked about travel, and bicycles, and food (so much about food!) and I seriously walked out of that meeting feeling like we were old friends. I had the opportunity to photograph their engagement session and wedding, then maternity portraits when Dawn was carrying little Ryder, and this session, where they’re expecting their second little boy. He’s since arrived and I couldn’t be happier for them!

At the last moment, Dawn decided to bring the teepee from Ryder’s room, and I loved how it turned out in photos! :)

{ lina + jeff // downtown los angeles wedding }

September 25th, 2014

Lina and Jeff were married on a sunny summer day in downtown, and had a wedding filled with nods to their culture and personalities. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Nishi Hongwanji Temple {where Lina's parents had been married as well!} and the reception followed just a few blocks away at the stunning Lot 613. As always, Sassy Girl Weddings pulled everything together perfectly, and transformed the loft space into the prettiest urban oasis – how amazing are those hanging arrangements??

One of my most favorite moments was the father-daughter dance – Lina told me her dad’s favorite type of dance is bon odori, a fun group dance that takes place at the Japanese obon festivals. So that’s what they did for their dance! It was my first time seeing this done at a wedding and I loved how their guests joined in, how it was something that was so special & meaningful for Lina and her father, and how his smile showed just how happy he was :) It was a wonderful reminder that your wedding is about you, you can choose what resonates with you most, make your own traditions, and infuse every corner of it with what you hold most dear to your heart :)
