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.

Best of 2016!
So, here is my "Best of 2016" by yours truly, Matthew Leland Photography. These posts are so challenging. As a working photographer, I capture thousands of images in a year and it's very hard to actually choose what you feel is your best work for the year. Some stand out quite powerfully as something you're proud of, others you love but you as an artist are not sure if they share the message you're trying to convey. I tried to best to narrow down the best images that not only challenged me, but I found myself very proud of as I look. These contain people from all parts of California, Nevada, Colorado, Canada and even Australia... which is so ...

Danika + Matt | Seaside Engagement in East Bay
Seaside engagement in Downtown Benicia I bring up a lot in my blog posts that as a wedding photographer, finding the right kind of clients is essential to creating great photography. It's a mix of the talent of the photographer and the vibe and personality of the subject... and when those two things merge well, beautiful things happen. Danika and Matt are one of those couples that found love early in their lives, spent some time apart, and for some reason found each other again and that love was rekindled again. Shooting them was seriously a mix of a live comedy show with pure adorable.  Tattooed, Hilarious, and clearly completely in love ...
