Marie + Todd | Brief Hipster Wedding in Altadena

Wedding

Like I’ve shown before in many of my posts, not everything about weddings need to be extravagant or over the top to be something special. While there is nothing wrong of course with some decadence and flair to a wedding, sometimes keeping it intimate is the better route to take. Truthfully, the reason this is happening is because of two people and their love, so what matters is what they want to do to celebrate that, not to give into norms. Most of my couples have this way of thinking, which is one of the reasons why they are so awesome.

That’s how Marie and Todd felt about their wedding. After having a very private ceremony with family and friends, I met them in Altadena at the Sam Merrill Trail for a quick shoot of their awesome wedding duds.

Fans of that vintage style and glamour, both Todd and Marie’s amazing looks made for some very cute photos in the short amount of time I had the pleasure of working with them. A bit of a hipster mix styled with vintage Hollywood pizazz, these shots came out fantastic and I think shows their style, humor and adoration for each other.

If someone asked me specifically what drives me to shoot weddings, this wedding would be one of the reasons that would come to mind. Living in Los Angeles is a high-stress world to deal with. With the buzzing of traffic, construction, tourism and of course the occasional movie crew blocking the road, it takes a certain type of person to live here. For some, it's the place to be and they couldn't imagine anywhere else to live. For Hanna and Robert, it was an amazing stepping stone in their lives and they knew at some point, the adventure would take them somewhere else one day. So for them, making sure that their wedding photos would bring t ...

Every now and then you meet a couple and you just connect right of the bat. This comes with people we call friends, but also those that become our clients. You just know they are the kind of people that drive you to do what you do. Juliana and Forest were that couple. With their inspiration being a mix of Halloween and Day of the Dead during their end of summer wedding, it played homage to the brides Latin heritage as well. Other passions like theatre and music from the 1920's-1940's also helped to make the ambiance and life of the wedding seem even more unique. The ceremony was particularly special and important. They even had an ancient ...
