Millwick Wedding Southern California - Late Night Street

Wedding Video and Photography at Millwick in Southern CA | Jenn + Dan

Los Angeles is quite the character. Her streets always bustling, her people always moving, her buildings glimmering in the rising and setting sun. Some love it here. Some hate it here. Millwick is a gem in the center of its concrete heart.

Being in Los Angeles is like playing golf. It has the ability to drive you mad, causing you to swear you will leave and never come back, but then a few moments later you will discover a charm that can be found nowhere else, which will leave you wanting to come back. You may play a horrible round of golf and then hit just ONE shot on 18 that is decent enough to make you smile and walk to the parking lot feeling like a champ.

When I flew in for Jenn and Dan’s wedding, the image of LA I had burned in my mind was instantly erased the moment we came over the mountains. No longer was it a pale brown, but a vibrant, Oz-like green. I had never seen her like this. The recent rain has brought the surrounding hills out of dormancy and a color has washed over them that has been absent for years. I asked locals when the last time was that they saw the hills this green, most said 20+ years, some said they have never seen it this green. I can see why settlers would be drawn to it and never want to leave.

Dan and Jenn hired me to do both photography and a film for them. My brother lives in LA so it was easy to bring him on board to help. I met the couple the night of their rehearsal and instantly picked up on their warmth. They are both sort of quiet, but can surprise you and be really loud a moment later, especially Jenn. I knew I liked them right away.

The wedding day started at a hotel downtown, but the rest of the day was spent at Millwick just down the road. You could drive past the venue a hundred times and never know the beauty that lay beyond the unassuming walls. The outdoor space at Millwick is vibrant, with plants covering the walls and lights crossing each way. The interior connects to the outside via two large garage doors that can easily be opened or closed, depending on the temperature. Jennifer did an amazing job with all of the details, from the tables and place settings to the flowers and catering. Millwick was such a gorgeous space.

The ceremony and cocktail hour both took place outside, followed by dinner and dancing inside. It was an awesome day and I am really happy with how the photos and video turned out. I think you will get a good sense for what these two are like by the end. The last 30 seconds may change your view of Dan abruptly when you see him cutting it up on the dance floor!

Calamigos Ranch Wedding Video | Birchwood Room | Malibu, CA | Penelope + Josh
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to head to Malibu, California to shoot this Calamigos Ranch Wedding.  Penelope and Josh are two of the sweetest people you will meet and after watching this video you will understand what I am talking about.  They contacted me late in the year and asked if I would be willing to make the trip out. When I heard a little about their wedding, and what they had planned, I knew I had to be a part of the day.  The day itself did not disappoint. The bride stayed on the premises in one of the suites, which had a large glass shower in the middle of the bedroom.  The groom got ready up the hill with the ...

Jayce and Kristin
Jayce and Kristin..... I knew from the very first time I talked with Kristin that I was going to have a lot of fun at their wedding. Jayce and Kristin love life... and are not afraid to have some fun. But, they were not all jokes. There was a real sense of how special this day really was. After Jayce teared up just standing next to his grandparents for some formal shots, I knew he had a big heart. Kristin was not without her share of tears... but it is always nice to see the guys get emotional. Thankfully they were willing to jog a good 4 Iron's distance UPHILL to get what I think are the best shots of the day with the tree. I think Jayce c ...
