We recently went to Thailand to shoot a fabulous destination wedding. There are so many fun facts about this wedding. To start our stylish and beautiful Bride Jenai is actually our Bride because we shot her first wedding many years ago. We shot that wedding at the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA!! The wedding was an Indian/American wedding and was really over the top!!. Jenai has a sense of style in her dress and in decor. We took wonderful photos and her mother just loved the album we produced. Unfortunately or fortunately that marriage dissolved and Jenai ended up marrying a man that had loved her for many years and he came back after he heard Jenai had gotten a divorce and he wooed her and Jenai said yes. They are the perfect couple with so much in common and Jonathan adores Jenai. it was wonderful to see that after her first marriage she more than landed on her feet. She was going to marry a man that she loved and was well suited for her!!
Then came the question. Will you shoot our second wedding. yes of course Jenai. But it in Thailand. We said even better so went on an Asian tour and shot the wedding. It was all very magical from the wedding in beautiful Krabi to stopping to see friends and family in Manila and stopping in Hong Kong one of my favorite cities in the world. Was good to be bak to Hong Kong again after so many years!
It was also so nice to see many familiar faces from the first wedding. Jenai's parents were nothing but complimentary on how we shot that wedding and Jenai's mother kept the album. It is her favorite book!! A very nice compliment I must admit.
it is always magical to go to a distant land full of magical people and landscapes. The other thing that was so fun is that they got married on the exact spot that Hangover 2. The wedding scene was filmed exactly where the ceremony was and that was also magical!
The day was very hot but the wedding went off without a hitch and the baby elephant for the guests at the cocktail hour was really a cool addition!!
Here are a few pics from that magical wedding and experience!
More exciting news!! Hedley and I will be speaking at the 2016 Wedding & Portrait Photography International Expo! And NOT ONLY will we be speaking, we will be teaching a MASTER CLASS.

Well ...We had the total pleasure to shoot a recent wedding in downtown LA and i have to say Weddings in Downtown LA are the bomb!!!....We love them......We had the best time running through the streets after seeing a wall that I just had to get the Bride and Groom to before all the festivities happened and the drinking began......Alexa and CJ were absolutely the best couple ever....They were in.....Whatever I said they said yes to me. I cannot tell you how much that means to a girl like me....It makes me want to run up the side of a mountain to get the shot.....I will you know.....Now that is what I call the perfect couple....When the B&G are into the photos as much as we are ~ we know we are destined to have some kick ass award winning images and I think we did some nice shooting that day...Not to mention had a ball!!! When the mother says to you that one of your images HAS to be on the cover of a magazine you know it is a job well done....
Please enjoy a few pics from the day that I really loved......I picked only a handful but I have to say there were well over 1000 of edited images from the getting ready shots to the dancing that were super fun, sexy and artsy....Check out http://www.loftsevenph.com to see a very unique and fabulous place for any kind of an event....Thank you to Tracy of http://www.flawlessweddingsandevents.net....You were so incredibly sweet and supportive to us during a long day....We all must have run up and down the stairs 1000 times that day......
Congrats again to Alexa and CJ...Friends for life....!!!!!
