Angela + Alejandro | Los Angeles Wedding

O.M.G! I can’t tell you how AMAZING this wedding was to document! Such style, such class, such a gorgeous couple! This was a fantastic start to my 2013 wedding season! Much gratitude to Mariela Campbell Photography for having me as an associate photographer. Oh, by the way, this is going to be a massive post!

Angela and Alejandro met 3 years ago and from the very first day Alejandro knew that Angela was the ONE. As Angela’s father stated in his speech, Alejandro made his intentions clear. Then 3 years later, the beautiful couple are getting married in downtown Los Angeles at the incredible Oviatt Penthouse.

Alejandro and Angela got ready at the Los Angeles Athletic Club in downtown Los Angeles, just a hop, skip and a jump from the Oviatt. I love and adore this hotel! From the outside it looks very ordinary and unappealing. But once you get into the rooms…WOW. The rooms have been totally renovated with clean modern furnishings.

I highly recommend, no….order all grooms to buy a suit. Nothing looks better than a man in a suit with touches of personal style. Please don’t go the easy way and do the rent-a-tux. That doesn’t show off your personality or style at all.

Alejandro is a man after my own heart. He is also a graphic designer and knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of lighting, staging, shooting. LOVE!!

I love that Alejandro and Angela both got tatoos of each other’s names on their ring finger! They got inked about two years before their wedding….Alejandro knew…he knew Angela was it. 🙂 Can you love this man even more? Oh by the way, Alejandro is over 6′ tall and has piercing blue eyes…drool!

As I said above, Alejandro is over 6’…I’m 5’1″. I had to stand on chairs, stools, benches in order to get the right perspective. LOL. Disadvantages of being short.

Oh yes, I love a man that shoots Canon! Oh, FYI, Alejandro use to be a model! That’s right. No direction, no suggestions for posing needed! He knows his good angles.

On to the Oviatt. It’s got so much history and architectural details. I never knew downtown L.A. had so much to offer.

As a graphic designer, artist, Alejandro commissioned Clinton Bopp to do a live painting of him and his new wife. What an incredible gift.

Such a remarkable venue. A rooftop wedding is perfect for these two urbanites! I love their style so much mainly because it matches with my personal style as well.

I love how in love Alejandro is with his new wife. His emotions flowed the entire day and he didn’t hold back a tear. Actually his over flowing of emotions made me tear up on many occasions too.
