Check out this gorgeous Dukes Malibu Wedding. Hopefully if you’re thinking about having a beach wedding or maybe you’re considering this location, it will help you decide. Our experience shooting at Dukes Malibu is a great one. Besides having such a great location with ocean views and blue skies, their staff is just amazing to work with. This is a very popular wedding venue so we do recommend booking with Dukes Malibu at least a year in advance to make sure you get your special date.

This particular wedding day was a memorable one, there was a 65% probability of rain at the beginning of the week but luckily it turned out a gorgeous day with clouds that would come and go. It was every wedding photographer’s dream come true. We got to take photos that looked romantic with the clouds giving us just enough shade and then as the sun would shine in giving us a new look for the photos.
This wedding was fun to plan and due to the couple’s busy schedule we ended up handling most of the wedding planning. We took care of the styling, flower arrangements, centerpieces, signs, and Chuppah decor. As much as we love to be trusted to handle all the decor and styling, we can’t help but to feel a bit nervous when the couple gets to see everything for the first time. But this is what we were born to do. Seeing the Bride and Groom’s smiles as they see their wedding set up for the first time is a feeling we can’t explain.

For this wedding Josh Ponder took care of all the preparation photos as Alex Diaz handled the full Day-of-Coordination and Styling along with the fabulous Cateraoke crew. Once all the decor was ready, Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder got back on their roles of capturing photos from all angles for every key moment. We love how the couple joined traditions and created a wedding for all to enjoy. Right after toast our in house Cateraoke Wedding DJ played an Irish Dance and then the very popular Jewish Hora Dance that got everyone on the dance floor. Later in the evening our photo booth was a total hit giving the guest another fun activity to do.

Redondo Beach Wedding Photography

Brandon & Monica


Redondo Beach Wedding Photography is always a pleasure to shoot and these wedding photos are a perfect example of what to expect from a Redondo Beach Wedding Photography. The ceremony took place at Redondo Beach, on a beautiful Southern California day with the perfect amount of sun. The Bride and Groom wanted to have a more intimate ceremony with only their closest family and friends. They were going for a Hawaiian Wedding style and that is exactly what they got! The guests arrived half an hour early to this lovely Redondo Beach Wedding and gathered around until the bride made her entrance. She looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown full of ruffles and long veil. The guests gathered around the couple, it was our first stand up ceremony but I must say that it felt very intimate and lovely. We are in love with Brandon & Monica’s photos! We are so happy that they loved their wedding photos and that we were given the chance to captured their day exactly how they wanted.
 

Beach weddings are one of my favorites to shoot. My advice for those that have the option to select a similar location is go for it! Beach Wedding photos are timeless, no matter what type of budget or wedding style you are going for. Having the sand on your feet, the blue skies above you and the ocean as you background, cannot be matched. As an artist it also allows us to color correct photos in so many different ways to give it a more original and intimate look.

Malibu Beach Wedding Photography

Joe & Jennifer

This was the perfect Jewish inspired Malibu Wedding.

 
We love Malibu Wedding Photography and we especially loved this Malibu Wedding at Dukes Malibu. There was a 65% probability of rain at the beginning of the wedding week but luckily it turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day with a little clouds in the evening on the actual wedding day. It was every wedding photographer’s dream come true and of course this totally made our day! This Malibu Wedding was a lot of fun to plan but certainly came with a couple of challenges. Nothing that these pair of fabulous Wedding Planners and Photographers Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder could not handle or course. The wedding turned out beautiful and most importantly the Bride and Groom were smiling the entire time. Due to their busy schedule they placed a lot of trust in us to take care of all the styling, flower arrangements, centerpieces, signs, and Chuppah decor. As much as we love to be trusted to handle all the decor and styling, we can’t help but to feel a bit nervous when the couple gets to see everything for the first time. But this is what we were born to do and seeing their smiles is a feeling we can’t explain.
 
For this wedding Josh Ponder took the role of the main photographer as Alex Diaz handled the full Day-of-Coordination and Styling along with the fabulous crew. For all the key moments both Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder took the role of main photographers capturing photos from all angles. You can see the photos below and see for yourself how fabulous this wedding truly was. We love how the couple joined traditions and created a wedding for all to enjoy. Right after toast there was an Irish Dance and then the Hora Dance that got everyone into the dance floor! We captured everyone having fun. Later in the evening our photo booth was a total hit giving the guest another fun activity to do. We love our job!

Queen Mary Wedding

Alina & Eric

We love shooting Long Beach Queen Mary Photography and as you can tell this gorgeous wedding took place at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA.  The ceremony was on the Well Deck with a fabulous view of the ocean and clear blue skies. With a wedding location like this you don’t really need that much décor, in fact for this wedding the décor was very minimal and it worked out perfectly. The ceremony was very intimate with about fifty of the bride and groom’s closest family and friends. The lovely bride was dressed in a traditional fitted white lace wedding dress and the groom wore a handsome black dark suit.

 

The reception moved inside the Queen Mary, at the Mauritania Room were more guests soon arrived to celebrate the newly weds. In the meantime we took the bride and groom for a tour around this beautiful ship. We took some timeless wedding photos throughout the Queen Mary. Even though it was a pretty warm summer day the couple were delighted to get their photos taken. We got super happy when we got a great review from them days later after we sent them a couple of samples.
