The first wedding of the year is always very exciting for me. While I welcome the break from weddings every winter I also start missing them, so I could barely wait for Elaine and Akram’s wedding to come around! The day started with Elaine preparing at the lovely Langham Huntington in Pasadena. The two shared a touching first look at the hotel’s beautiful courtyard and then we ventured off to shoot at the hotel’s many scenic locations.

My favorite parts of the day had to be the ceremony and reception. It was such a privilege to witness how important family are to these two, and the joining of their two families was cause for much celebration. Elaine and Akram a huge thank you for inviting me in and entrusting me to capture your day!
