Relationships are built on many important factors, but I find one of the most profound to be humor. Personalities evolve over the years, looks fade in time, but if you have a partner who can make you laugh…it’s truly invaluable. I love photographing couples who have a great connection and share genuine laughter together. It’s so refreshing.

Sam and Annabel have definitely found the element of humor with each other. They assured me that neither of them were photogenic, but I’d beg to differ. Look at them! The best captures happen when smiles aren’t forced, and people are free to be relaxed and completely themselves. I loved photographing their wedding day and watching them interact and connect while sharing authentic fun and laughter with one another.
I’ve worked with Sam a few times in the commercial production industry, and Annabel is in the fashion industry so naturally she has a great sense of style. When they told me they were getting married at Smog Shoppe in LA, I knew it would be a perfect spot for them. It’s a super hip place and it’s impossible not to have fun at this venue. The garden wall was a beautiful backdrop for their emotional ceremony, and everything about their wedding day and reception screamed fun.
Needless to say, their laughter and connection were contagious. I can only imagine the endless laughter and love that will inevitably fill their future. Congratulations you two, it truly was a magical day.
Working with Sam and Annabel reminded me of just how much fun love truly can be. Being their Los Angeles Wedding Photographer was an absolute honor! Recently engaged? Congrats! I’d love to discuss your photography needs. Let’s chat!
