For every wedding I do, I like to find what makes it unique from all the other weddings I photograph to help tell the story of the day. The venue is an obvious place to start but the thing that really sets it apart for me is always the bride and groom. It’s their personalities, their connection and their choices for how they want to celebrate their union that really inspire how I photography their big day.
When it came to Ashley and Oussama’s wedding last month at the Bel Air Bay Club, I loved all they ways they chose to create a day that was so special by forgoing many of the normal traditions in favor of a wedding day that was especially meaningful for them. The highlight for me was that they walked down the aisle together. It was so sweet and told me so much about them. It’s the kind of moment that gets me excited and happy and pumped and giddy that my job is to photograph these incredibly amazing days.
