Michelle and Mike's wedding

Michelle and Mike's wedding and reception was another case of how lucky I am to have the best clients ever!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again, with Michelle and Mike I had the best time ever, they are super easy to be around, were an absolute pleasure to photograph, always up for any of my crazy ideas, basically a wedding photographers dream. Their wedding was beautiful from start to finish, the ceremony was held at The Neighborhood Church in Palos Verdes, CA. Which is such a beautiful church literally built on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. After we did our picture thing it was off to the reception at Hotel Portofino in Redondo Beach, CA. Which again is right overlooking the ocean (you could constantly see the sea lions playing in the water below us). The reception was tons of fun and everyone had a great time partying away...here's a preview guys, enjoy!!!



























































Michelle Green: Ion, you're a rockstar! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos.

Veronica and David

David and Veronica's quaint beach wedding was planned on Sunday during Memorial weekend on a Santa Barbara beach. After many "June gloom" mornings I couldn't be happier to see the sun shining beautifully on the beach as I drove into Santa Barbara. I arrived at Hotel Mar Monte where the girls were busily getting ready and Veronica sat relaxed getting her hair and make-up done by Robin Rodriquez. Across the street the guys were getting ready separately and both groups were all smiles and excitement looking forward to the day ahead. After some early morning shooting of the wedding parties getting ready we strolled across the street as the beach guests arrived and awaited as the beautiful bride arrived beach side in a glossy black antique car. Rabbi Silver spoke with such sincerity that even though I was not family or a long time friend I felt very much apart of it all. After the wedding everyone went back to the hotel where the reception was a perfect vision of spring with light green accents and big picture windows over looking the beach. Katie Tiffany, wedding coordinator, made sure everything was perfect as always. Veronica and David danced the night away to the tunes of Gabe from AMS Entertainment and into the night as they begin their new life together!!!






















































































Valerie and Brandon are married!!!

Valerie and Brandon's wedding was a small, intimate wedding with very close family and friends. You could see and feel the closeness everyone shared throughout the entire day. They have known each other since the 8th grade and started officially dating in high school and the rest as they say is history. They were married at Occidental College which is an absolutely beautiful campus here in Los Angeles. The ceremony was held in a room made of aged, old, dark wood which gave a beautiful feel to the ceremony. Valerie and Brandon each wrote and read their own vows to each other which didn't leave a dry eye in the house. The reception followed in a courtyard just outside where everyone partied until they were whisked away in the wee hours of the night off to their honeymoon...

















































































Patty and Jim are now married!!!

Patricia and Jim started their day off getting ready at Terranea Resort which is a beautiful site overlooking the ocean in Palos Verdes, CA. Patricia started her day getting her makeup done by Susie Chuuor who's work is always flawless.After much laughter and excitement (as you literally could not wipe the smile off of Patricia's face) everyone moved on to the ceremony at the Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes, which is surrounded by trees and has glass all around that make for a beautiful atmosphere for a wedding. Up to this point they were both careful not to see each other before hand but as Patricia finally walked down the aisle Jim was beaming from ear to ear. The ceremony was very touching and sweet and when it was over everyone made there way over to the Trump Resort where Patricia and Jim made their grand entrance again with ear to ear smiles and then the party started. The evening was coordinated wonderfully by Sandy Liang from Aquafuzion who made everything run flawlessly from the floral design to the lighting and invitations. Everyone had a great time partying and dancing all night and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to photograph, you both made my job easy which I always appreciate and here are the highlights from your day!!!
