Kayla and Chris Save the Date Photo Session

Had and unbelievably great time with Chris and Kayla taking their photos at Corriganville Regional Park in Simi Valley.  One of the most critical times for a photographer happens long before the day of the wedding.  As a photographer of people it is much easier to take pictures of people when you know something about them.  At Luminary Photo we find it extremely difficult to show up the day of your wedding and make you look great.  We insist on an engagement session so that we can get to know you and understand how you smile, what your good side is and the like.  When we do this we know that when we photograph your big day we capture all the love and joy of the day and make you look great.  Kayla and Chris opted to have our “Save the Date” session as well as the engagement session and these photos were the outcome.  This is a short quick session where we are able to take some photos so that you can send out a quick postcard to your likely guests to save the date of your upcoming marriage.  Enjoy and feel free to let me know your thoughts on the photos.

Hire LA Rhythm Crew

A great friend Natascha Corrigan has a Wedding Band called LA Rhythm Crew.  I did all of these photographs for them and I know they look great but wait till you hear how they sound.  If you want something different for your wedding hire LA Rhythm Crew and watch people have a great time on the dance floor.  Enjoy!!!

Dave and Kathryn Wedding

We were able to spend the day with both dear friends and our latest wedding client.  We started there around 11am and spent until 9pm getting everything photographed.  Here are a quick few that you might enjoy.  If you like a photo or an album use the Facebook like button below the photo gallery.  You couldn’t have asked for an easier couple to work with and both of their families were awesome!  Congrats to both of you and all of our love!
