Devon and Yolanda got married in a beautiful ceremony at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. The ceremony was preformed by Mary Jean Valente of A Ceremony of the Heart. I love working with Mary Jean because she delivers amazing wedding ceremonies that are created and customized for each couple. The wedding took place on a warm day in August. The wedding party consisted of three groom’s men and three bride’s maids who were dressed in purple wedding attire. The bride’s sister had adorable identical twin boys who where the ring bearers. They were a little on the young side so we were lucky the made it down the aisle. The wedding colors were purple and green and the bridal bouquet was made of white roses with a few pieces of green and purple peppered in for color. This wedding was held on The Oaks section of the ranch. The Oaks is great because it has a rustic yet romantic feel as thought the wedding were taking place in a glamorous tree house. This ceremony and reception aria is tucked away on the back part of the ranch to insure privacy and intimacy.

Their wedding colors were white and ivory and the wedding bouquet was made of mostly roses with a few calla lilies sprinkled throughout. The wedding flowers on the table arrangements were made of orchids..The wedding flowers were done by The Flower Factory. Jennifer wore an amazing beaded wedding gown by Lazaro. The bridesmaids rocked black sequin cocktail dresses. E.I.E. Productions provide entertainment for the night. Jennifer and Drew skipped the wedding cake and went for a desert bar and the quest enjoyed the always popular chocolate fountain. We shot the wedding photography in a near by field and the autumn colored leaves provided a great backdrop.

As I rap up my 5th year as a wedding photographer I’d like to thank all of my past, present and future brides for allowing me to tell their wedding stories. Shooting weddings is a lot of fun and I’d like to share my favorite aspects of weddings.

My favorite thing about small weddings – intimacy

My favorite thing about big weddings – lots of friends

James Church on Vincent St. in Redondo Beach. I love working at this church because the ambient lighting is great and with amazing digital technology I did not even need to use a tripod to capture these images! After the wedding ceremony we went to Rancho Palos Vedas to take the formal wedding photography portrait session. Alex and Marry lucked out because there was the most beautiful sunset the night of their wedding that perfectly matched the couples blue wedding color theme. The Chinese banquet style wedding reception was held Prince Seafood South St Cerritos, CA

Having spent years working as an editorial photographer and shooting for magazines like Elle, Cosmopolitan and Angelino, I developed a unique style. In addition to my standard engagement sessions which generally last about an hour I offer extended Luxe sessions.

During a Luxe sitting the couple usually rents a room at a hotel and we spend several hours on the photoshoot. I bring in professional lighting and do wardrobe consultation with the couple prior to the shoot. On a Luxe session we can set up complex lighting to add drama to the images. This lighting set up is far different from what wedding photographers use on the day of the wedding.

There are a lot of big photography chains out there leaving people to wonder if they should go big or boutique. Here are some things to consider before signing up with a photography chain.

Quality control – In large photography chains, the decisions on the quality of the images taken comes from the top and many require the photographer to shoot in .jpg (resulting in lower quality files that are easer for the large company to store) At Tiffany Photography we always shoot in RAW format leaving you with the best possibly quality wedding images.

Continuity – At a smaller studio you get to know the photographer personally and have a relationship with one person from start to end. In a larger studio, you may fall in love with the sales person and end up with a photographer you can’t relate to.

The Jewish wedding ceremony was officiated by the wonderful Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben. Rabbi Reuben is a pleasure to work with and always delivers heart felt ceremony speeches with a hint of humor. Sara and Daniel’s chuppah (a canopy traditionally used in Jewish weddings) was of particular sentiment because it was handing down and used in wedding ceremonies of their family members. Sarah’s Chuppah and bouquet are made of calla lilies.

Sarah and Daniel opted to see each other before the wedding so they could take care of the wedding photography before the ceremony. Seeing each other before the wedding is highly recommended for several reasons.

1. It cuts down on the time your guest have to wait and extends the time you get to celebrate at your wedding ceremony

Tiffany Photography has offered eco friendly wedding photography solutions for years. We were one of the first wedding photography studios to go all digital. Digital wedding photography allows us to use memory cards and eliminate the toxic process of developing film. Unlike some photography studios we do not make proof prints of every image from the wedding day. This allows us to cut down on cost and waste. You will, however, get a high resolution copy of all wedding images on DVD for your personal use.

All packages include Tiffany as the lead photographer, at least 5 hours of coverage, and the high resolution files on DVD. Almost all packages include a photography assistant and wedding album.

Wedding photography packages are custom created for each couple to insure you get exactly what you want without paying for extras you don’t need.

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of actress/song writer Susan Brittian and football player Willie Gault at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills! I love working at this hotel and the on site wedding coordinator, Jamie Friedman, is extremely helpful and lovely to work with.

Susan’s gorgeous group of friends did a wonderful job helping her prepare for the wedding day.
Check out the design work on Susan’s amazing emerald cut engagement ring. The wedding florist Anna Yepremyan worked magic by creating a unique criss cross wedding aisle made of white rose petals and creating flower arrangements with a vibrant color scheme including blue, orange and pink hues.
