Classic | Modern wedding... with a view

Updated: Oct 25, 2023

Downtown Los Angeles was the backdrop for Shelby and Erik's wedding, where one year to the day, they had their very first date...

Location #1 - The Ace hotel for getting ready, HMU and some good bonding time with the bridal party. The storied United Artists theater next door provided some vintage vibes.


First Look // A moment just for two.


And just look at these portraits we got to shoot because we did a first look!!

I loved that they were game to wander DTLA near the hotel. Erik's black and white tux and Shelby's ball gown and vintage inspired hair and make-up were such an amazing contrast to the colorful surroundings.


Location # 2 // South Park Center Helipad for some breath taking pre ceremony portraits.

Mom's veil... such a sweet touch.

I mean, c'mon you two... GORGEOUS


Cantor Michael Li Paz was also Shelby's cantor for her bat mitzvah. Truly a wonderful, personal connection which made for a very special ceremony.

You could feel the joy in the room.

Mazel Tov!


They made their way to the dance floor to start the party

That cake tho... Beautiful... And delicious.

CONGRATULATIONS! Your happily ever after has begun!
