This wedding was Old Hollywood at its finest. Cicada, an art-deco restaurant from the 1920′s served as a perfect venue for Anora & Josh’s September wedding in downtown Los Angeles. Anora donned a lace vintage bridal gown while Josh looked handsome in a classic white dinner jacket with bow tie. These two couldn’t have been more stunning (or tall) if they had tried. And it was all pulled together flawlessly by Amy Huth of Design In Mind Events.

I was super lucky to have CK Hwang along to 2nd shoot with me. Some of his beautiful images are mixed in with my own below. Enjoy!

We started with the girls who had their hair & makeup done at Neihule Salon.

Then it was off to the Biltmore Hotel so that everyone could get dressed. CK went to hang out with the guys.

Here’s a tip for all of you photographers. I hung the dress here on the bed but there just wasn’t enough light on it so I pulled out my video light and rested it on the dresser so that it would light the dress for me. No assistant necessary.

We got to sneak upstairs to the Oviatt Penthouse for a few portraits. We didn’t have long, but it was so worth it.
