when ashley and ryan first contacted me, I knew i was going to want to be friends with them. as their wedding day approached and we had the opportunity to hang out and take some pre-wedding photos, my initial friendship-hopes were confirmed.
this couple is easily one of the friendliest and most welcoming pair of peeps I’ve ever had the chance to meet, and by golly their downtown los angeles wedding did not disappoint.
thanks so much to ashley and ryan for letting me be a part of one of the most important days of their lives.

i love what we created together.

elina and mike wanted some candid moments captured as they explored the textured arts district in downtown Los Angeles. walking around town for this urban engagement session, we laughed too much and found some amazing nooks and crannies to snap some images at.
i’m more than pumped for their wedding coming up on Saturday!

you can see this session over on the Branch and Cole blog, HERE!

This is easily the most colorful wedding that I ever had the opportunity to capture. This was also the first Indian wedding that I had the honor of being a part of and I really hope I get the chance to shoot at least (at least!) 3 more. So colorful, so rich in tradition and history, so welcoming.
Thank you Avni and Tom for this opportunity to be welcomed into your culture and your family in order to capture one of the most important days of your collective life!
You’re both champs and a half!

Peep below for all the happenings of their massive celebration.

Everything about this wedding was MONEY. Sasha and Charlie and two A+ people and they created an amazingly thoughtful and beautiful day. Surrounded by the textured urban sprawl of downtown Los Angeles, this urban wedding was CLASS.
Getting ready at the Ace Hotel LA and then having the awesome overgrown backdrop of the Millwick for the ceremony and reception, it was an honor to be a part of and witness the day’s events unfold as Sasha and Charlie surrounded themselves with all of those that they love and hold dear.
Thank you for having me, you two. It was a treat and a half.
Cheers.

this wedding day was immense. i’m more than happy to have the opportunity to share these images with you. after their engagement session in yosemite i knew that olivia and levi’s wedding was going to be absolutely amazing. and this is my favorite los angeles wedding to date, easily.

olivia and levi are two of the dearest people and most authentic personalities that you’ll ever meet. they’re the most encouraging and down to earth people that easily open up and embrace you into their family and their world. i know for a fact that i’ll always have a place at the applegate’s table after sharing this beautiful day with them.

take a peek at their wedding story and enjoy what we created together.
its dangerous legit.
