We met Yu & Ow at the Oxford House in Los Angeles on a beautiful sunny summer afternoon. It was a warm (maybe slightly too warm) Saturday in September, but we were ready to go! I mean, after all, this was a wedding with a TREE HOUSE! I absolutely loved the scenery of this cute little venue! This is a wedding photographers dream come true to photograph. You can’t ask for a better place to hang the dress than on the branch of a tree that also happens to be holding a small house
We got to photograph both Yu and Ow as they got ready for their big day. There was a beautiful excitement and anticipation about them. Yu read his vows with a tear in his eye. I started to tear up just listening to him! You could sense just how much these two love each other.
Yu and Ow chose to do a first look, and it was such a beautiful moment. Absolute tears of joy as Yu turned around to see his bride. And she was so excited and happy to see him that she couldn’t contain herself! Wedding photography is never dull, and is so rewarding seeing people who love each other so deeply.
Ceremony time! I was so excited to shoot this ceremony. After all, it took place directly underneath a treehouse. The entire venue was decorated so beautifully. It was green, and lush and was a perfect backdrop for the love exchange that was about to take place. I felt honored to be there. Yu & Ow exchanged their vows to the tears and smiles of their closest friends and family. It was a beautiful ceremony and I felt blessed to have been able to be there for it.
Next up is my favorite part of any wedding day. The romantic shots. We were lucky because we got a decent amount of time with Yu & Ow, so we went up to this incredible overlook that I’ve shot at before near Griffith Observatory. It’s a bit of a climb to get to the top, thank goodness Ow was willing and happy to make the climb because the photos came out glorious! We had an extremely close view to the Hollywood sign, and then a little further up we were able to get the most perfect view of downtown LA and Griffith Observatory. It was the most perfect spot. Yu & Ow were so happy and full of joy after their ceremony. It was a blessing being able to photograph and witness it.
