Hello Friends! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Karen and I have been pretty swamped here at the tail end of the season. So to make up for it we decided to do one ginormous post of all 30 weddings we shot this year! There are quite a bit of images (257 to be exact) in this post. So, grab a tasty beverage/snack and sit back and enjoy. We’re extremely happy with the work we put out this year and we’re excited to share this set with you.

All photos by Ed & Karen unless otherwise noted.

Heather and Rainier :: Oviatt Penthouse Wedding
Heather and Rainier’s had their wedding ceremony at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles. Their big pimpin wedding reception was at the Oviatt Penthouse in downtown Los Angeles. The two locations have special meaning to them as both locations are just blocks from where they live and call home.  Thanks to Helen Tao.

Romeo and Celina :: San Diego Country Club Wedding
Ed has known Celina and her family for more than 20 years. It was with great pleasure to capture their wedding for it had come full circle – Ed’s first wedding nearly 15 years ago was the 25th anniversary of Celina’s parents so it was a real treat to come back so many years later and shoot Celina’s wedding. Thank you for having us at your wedding!
