Joli & Gary Get Wed

Los Angeles, California. Joli and Gary are two of the brightest shining most amazing people I know. I love them. I am so honored to have been asked to document an incredible couple of days celebrating their marriage in their backyard in southern California. I’m sure there’s plenty to be said about these two and what they did for their day, but I’ll leave that to Rock N’ Roll Bride who I’ve linked to again at the bottom of this post. Meanwhile, I’ll stick to what I do best, and post some photos.

    It’s wonderful work. The care you take in capturing so many beautiful, meaningful details evokes an emotional response from the viewer. I find it inspiring on many levels – thank you!

    All of this is just beautiful, but your ability to capture kids the way you do is inspiring. Dude! The kid with the button up with the hoodie over it and the purple LA cap. Reminds me of my future brother in law when he was younger. 7th from the bottom, the hug with the black space above them. I like this composition and the guy looks SO happy. The light streaks are signature you, too (at least to me). Great set.
