Samah and Ahmed met in Japan and they say it was truly love at first sight. Both Samah and Ahmed attended grad school at UCLA, and were literally in the same building, but their paths never crossed until they were thousands of miles away. How crazy is that?!
They had their ceremony down in LA and then opted to host an intimate dinner celebration at Berkeley City Club. It’s no secret that this is one of my absolute favorite venues.

Not only did Mouang make the most stunning bride, but their four year old son was the cutest guest of honor. Canyon View has a beautiful view of the valley and I’m kind of obsessed with pampas grass, so of course I was super excited to do their family photos in front of some. The sunset that day was absolutely perfect and we were able to get some of my favorite sunset portraits to date! Read More

The mariachi band and stained glass windows were a perfect backdrop as Cecilia & Calvin exchanged vows and merged families. Once it was sealed with a kiss, the mariachi band carried the party over to a romantic, outdoor reception at Jardines. Lavender was the theme and the whole place was adorned with lilac roses and beautiful succulents. Read More
