Sheena & Ben's Buddhist Backyard Wedding

Ben met Sheena when he first became interested in learning about Buddhism. He liked her immediately, but it wasn’t until years later that they became a couple. Through the wedding planning process, I loved getting to spend time with these two and being there to document their big day felt very special. One thing I noticed in every aspect of their wedding was just how beloved Sheena and Ben are by their family and friends. Also, they made my job very easy - it was clear from the way they looked at each other throughout the day how much they love each other. From touching speeches to the hilarious father/daughter dance in the backyard of a long-time family friend, their wedding was brimming with lovely touches that I’ll remember for a long time.

Christine & Ara’s Burbank Castaway Wedding

The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.

Christine and Ara met through their robotics program in high school and have been together ever since. Christine is a civil engineer and Ara works at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, so it makes perfect sense that these two had a Carl Sagan quote during their ceremony at Castaway in Burbank.  It was a gorgeous day and I had so much fun hanging out with these two and capturing the moments of their wedding. Spending time with them, it amazed me that they’ve been in love for nearly half their lives and it was a great honor to be there on the day they made it official.
