This was a beautiful wedding held in Los Angeles at The Sheraton Gateway LA Hotel for Jen and Ari. It was a great February day across from LAX airport.
Here, Jen’s makeup artist is putting on the final finishing touches before she gets ready to put on her beautiful wedding dress. I like capturing these moments for my brides! They love seeing their makeup and hair all done up!
Another shot that I love photographing for my brides is her looking at her dress one final time before she puts it on. This is the moment where it all comes together. The moment she has been thinking of since probably she even became engaged. I also like to ask the bride’s mother if she is present in the room to help tie up the back or zip the dress.
Ari had some really great details with awesome accents. His shoes and bow tie were made out of suede, which matched the lapels of his jacket.
It’s always a great time when there’s a bottle of champagne involved. Here, Ari is enjoying a glass with the guys in his family, wishing him all the best of luck before he goes down to see his bride to be.
First Look & Couples Session
First looks are such a beautiful moment. Placing the groom so he can’t see his fiancee walking up behind him builds up so much anticipation. He’s been waiting forever to finally see the dress and now he finally can.
