I got to spend the past 2 days with a pretty amazing group of women. This was the 4th Modern Portrait workshop that my mother and I have hosted and the first time we've had a 100% female enrollment and boy did we have a great time with them. Not that it hasn't been just as wonderful having guys around, it was just a different dynamic. :) It was held at the brand new studio in the Noho Arts District that I'm sharing with Ellen Petty and although we don't even have any furniture in there yet, it felt great to have people in there enjoying the space and we 're looking forward to officially moving in this weekend. I'll post some pictures as we go through the decoration process but for now, I wanted to continue to catch up on blogging all of the engagement sessions I've shot recently. So

My mother is in town visiting this week so after dragging her to a couple of wild (actually one rather sedate, one wild) Hollywood parties last night, we spent the afternoon prepping for The Modern Portrait workshop which we teach together. It's going to be held at the new loft studio I just got with my good friend Ellen Petty from Identity Kitchen. I'll post some pictures of the space soon as it starts to come together. As promised though, here is the next engagement session on the list. Carin and Perry are a wonderful couple who found me despite the lack of any actual wedding marketing efforts out here in LA. But I was so glad that they found me because we are very much on the same page and their wedding is to take place at a venue that I have been eyeing for a couple of years now,

Lorinda and Kawika are an adorable couple from Hawaii who happened to meet one another in DC of all places. They are planning what is going to be a beautiful wedding in Hawaii this October and somehow managed to find me for some engagement portraits in the DC area. This one was shot during the cherry blossom festival a few weeks ago.

Boy have I just been an editing machine these days and I still have tons of new shoots to blog so here is the 3rd and final part of Bershan & David's beautiful wedding. This part includes the reception which was held at the US Chamber of Commerce. Bershan changed into dress #2 halfway through the reception and they shared a "2nd dance". Legendary floral designer Preston Bailey was in attendance at this wedding and I finally had the pleasure of meeting him. David gave a beautiful toast to his bride as his son Jack comforted Bershan. So sweet! I have still have 4 unblogged engagement sessions from the past few weeks so check back soon for more.

Well I'm back safe and sound in LA and there is a lot going on here. Yesterday, Ellen and I signed a lease on a new loft studio space that we are going to be sharing so that means lots of furniture shopping and decorating and moving computers around etc. I'm excited to post some pictures of the space as it comes together. More of that to come soon. But today I want to bring you part 2 of Bershan & David's fabulous DC wedding last weekend. Did Regina do an amazing job on this ceremony decor or what? It's quite a view from the rooftop of the Hay Adams. I especially love this one of Bershan's dad right before the ceremony. It was an extremely beautiful and emotional ceremony Hope you enjoy these and I'll be back soon with part 3!
