Good afternoon from Monster Zero amped up Esquire Photography HQ in Orange County everyone! I’m one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer who is MEGA excited to share a totally sexy and romantic Los Angeles wedding I recently had the honour of being the photographer for at UCLA.
With all the exciting Engagement Shoots, Portraits and Weddings I’ve been capturing photographs of from Newport Beach down to San Diego and all the way up to Oakland – this particular wedding that I’m sharing of Kristen & Michael is one of the most sassy, sexy and romantic weddings ever. I would even go so far as to say their photographs look like the cover of fashion magazine.
I met up with Kristen and her ladies in waiting in their hotel suite at the Hotel Angeleno which is a totally amazing art-deco property with killer views and incredible customer service. Kristen was absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero wedding gown while her ladies were dreamy in their Alfred Angelo dresses.
We had spent some good times chatting it up and joking around while they were putting the finishing touches on their hair & makeup but eventually I needed to meet up with Michael & his men to capture some EPIC GQ portraits of the guys.
Once their photographs were a wrap, we headed to UCLA for Kristen & Michael’s wedding ceremony. Which I really want to say – the church at UCLA toooooootally reminds me of Westminster Abbey in London. It’s gorgeous! Their ceremony was perfect, the classic and timeless portraits I photographed of them and their family were stunning and the playful & whimsical portraits I photographed with Kristen were a blast.
Once we rocked the traditional and artistic portraits with the bridal party – that was when things were taken to the HNL with Kristen & Michael. They allotted a HUGE chunk of time for me to photograph them in so many romantic and passionate portraits, they would easily have dominated on the cover of Vogue or W in a heartbeat.
Their reception rocked the night away with an awesome garter toss, a smash-free cake cutting and tons of timeless moments with their friends & family. Their Los Angeles wedding at UCLA was definitely a dream come true for everyone that attended!
I’ve put together a beautiful slide show of just a few of my favourite photographs I captured during Kristen & Michael’s Los Angels Wedding at UCLA below.

PS, If you haven’t already seen on Twitter & Facebook the two very HUGE announcements I shared recently – check this out. One is the Military Promotion that launched last Saturday. I had the honour of giving it to Ali & Justin when I was up at Edward’s Air Force Base with both of their parents location scouting and going over details for their Lancaster Wedding Day I’m photographing next August. The other HUGE announcement I shared is the Workshop I’m teaching with my good friend & fellow photographer Danny in Paris France. So if you’re in Paris over Christmas break, totally let me know because the workshop is very affordable & only 100 Euros per person.
PS, Check out this awesome quote I shared on Twitter keeping the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. It’s a totally new one & I really think it is so very true. “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves” -Shakespeare AND “We are all made of stars” -Moby.
