Each and every one of my clients has a unique story to tell. It is my privilege to share those stories with you.
What can I say about Barry’s Bootcamp?? I am not a fan; I’m obsessed. I’ll admit, I was a late joiner to Barry’s Bootcamp. I took my first class in 2023 and never looked back. Which is why I was SO excited to photograph Barry’s Bootcamp Venice location’s 6th anniversary!
Barry’s Bootcamp was born in the West Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1998. However, it took until 2017 for the brand to expand to the nearby neighborhood of Venice Beach! The Venice location is amazing. It’s spacious, clean, and has some of the nicest staff!
In celebration of the Venice location turning 6, the studio went all out. Classes featured a live DJ and the energy was incredible! Barry’s is known for its amazing instructors and playlists that make each class energetic and fun (even when you feel like you’re dying) but having a live DJ in class was next level. The studio also catered Sweetgreens lunches for participants. Later on, Nocco sponsored the event and energy drink shots were passed around halfway through class as a fun surprise for participants! After class, everyone enjoyed lunch, Nocco beverages, and of course, Fuel Bar smoothies!
Finally, the most exciting part of the event: Barry’s Bootcamp Venice hosted complimentary B-12 shots from Modwella! B-12 supplements assist in recovery and energy. There was a registered nurse on site giving free B-12 injections and people lined up to receive them! Venice is known for many things, including having a high population of health freaks, and it was so much fun moving our bodies together and celebrating an incredible studio. It’s so fun getting to build community while doing something nice for your body.

This epic La Cañada Flintridge Country Club bar mitzvah was so much fun to photograph! I honestly don’t know who had more fun, me or the guests. There’s just something about photographing mitzvah-age kids that I get a huge kick out of! Jacob’s family hosted his mitzvah at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, a stunning event venue overlooking Los Angeles.
Jacob’s bar mitzvah started with a family portraits before the formal ceremony. It was so sweet getting to see all of Jacob’s close family members, family friends, and school friends come together to celebrate with him! Jacob comes from a really sweet, connected family.
Afterwards, the ceremony began. Jacob read from the torah and gave his thoughts and interpretations on scriptures that stook out to him. In a surprise twist, the ceremony concluded with guests throwing candy at him! I think the kids took it a little bit more intensely than was planned, and Jacob and his father ducked for cover as they were lovingly pelted with candy. I literally could not stop laughing.
The epic ceremony lead into an epic reception, with a MC, photo booth, and tons of fun activities and games! One of the games was musical chairs and let me tell you: never have I ever seen a more competitive game played! The party ended with dancing and a sweet and emotional candle lighting. Many guests were drawn to tears. There was so much love in this family and everyone had a wonderful time! Including me!

Congratulations to this gorgeous couple! It was so fun capturing luxury private event photography for this engagement party. A close friend of the couple planned this engagement party with the couple and their closest friends and family members. The groom’s family even flew in from out of town to attend the celeration!
The event was held at a private residence in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles. The residence featured a magnificent outdoor level with exquisite views overlooking the city. Guests enjoyed charcuterie, butlered hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment featuring a magician! The bartenders served signature cocktails inspired by the soon-to-be bride and groom. The night was full of fun, laughter and so much love. It was really special seeing guests of all ages meet each other in celebration of the couple. This was the first time both sides of the family came together along with close friends of the couple, and everyone had a wonderful time!
After guests were seated for dinner, a few close family members gave toasts in honor of the couple. It was special to see how much thought and care had been put into making the night a success. After speeches, I took the couple around the perimeter of the property to capture some romantic portraits. They were still glowing from all of the speeches and from a night of being showered in love! It was so sweet to capture the pure joy that was radiating off of them!

There are few things I love more than capturing an elegant Azusa quinceañera . It’s so special to be able to photograph a young woman on this very special day in her life! This beautiful young lady started the celebration with her quince mass at St. Louise de Marillac Catholic Church. After the mass, Lana and her family went to Azusa City Hall to capture formal portraits. It was so sweet seeing all of her family members come together to celebrate such a momentous occasion!
Lana comes from a huge beautiful family. It was obvious how tight-knit everyone was. Family and friends traveled from all regions of California and beyond to celebrate Lana’s quinceañera. We photographed everyone together, and then I captured more photos of just Lana and her parents. It was a perfect day and we incorporated pops of color from the birds of paradise flowers on the property. The portraits of Lana are so lovely. She looks absolutely regal.
Afterwards, we all traveled to Azusa Woman’s Club to the banquet hall where the party took place. I love this venue because it has a beautiful private room that is perfect for portraits! The room is elegant and feminine, and the soft color scheme paired beautifully with Lana’s dress. She really did look like a Princess!
The party began, and Lana and her guests enjoyed catered tacos and charcuterie. Lana made her grand entrance to a surprise Mariachi entrance! The Mariachi band was incredible and guests of all ages were singing and dancing along to beloved tunes. It was such a joyous time. Eventually, Lana danced with her father. He swept her off her feet (literally) to rounds of applause! They followed with a toast, and then it was time for dessert! Catered churros entered the party and guests were delighted. It was a long night of laughter, dancing, and fun! Congratulations to Lana!
