Marianne-Sabado Photography » Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Specializing in Fine Art Film Photography

2 Friday’s ago I was ready to pull hair and teeth when water poured down from the heavens.  I was also stuck on the 405 going 15 miles per hour because it turned into a horizontal water slide.  “Please don’t let this be the weather tomorrow…pplleeaassee”.  The worry wart that I am, I was ready to call my client and come up with a Plan B.

The following day came and brought with it a cool breeze and plenty of sunshine, and pollen!

Kayla and Sam pulled up right next to us on the dirt lot and hugs were in order.  I suppose I failed to mention that I’m a hugger? I’m friendly light that.  Kayla had previously e-mailed me her and Sam’s weddingday color palette and as I opened the attachment, I was overwhelmed with “awwwwww”.  The colors were fantastic.  Kayla and Sam stepped out of the car and well, I was “awwing” again because their outfit was so perfect for the location and weather: the greys, yellows, it was great.  I guess you can’t really expect nothing less from a graphic designer right?  Yes, Kayla is a graphic designer.  We shot around the rolling hills and Western Town of Paramount Ranch and the day ended without a hitch.  So here’s the 4-1-1 on this fun couple:

– Kayla is NOT a girly girl.  Ohh yes, watch out Kayla, I may just have you do some acrobatic pose during your wedding and the crazy thought is…I don’t doubt you’ll do it.

– Sam can look GQ in both composed or candid shots, you’ll see.

– Kayla is one of those women whose hair (even when in the middle of extreme wind conditions) looks good.  I on the other hand look like I just stepped out of the ocean with stands of hair looking like it was caught between sand paper and the wind.

– There’s something quite special about Kayla’s engagement ring.  It’s special because it belonged to her 3rd great grandmother, making the ring over 150 years old.  Can’t get any more special than that.

– The home town of Jack Daniel’s…it’s a dry town.  This is a little trivia from Sam.  I’m sorry Lynchburg, I don’t think we’ll ever meet.

CONGRATS Sam & Kayla! September can’t come soon enough.

I met Isabel, Robert and their two children Sofia and Joaquin at Laguna Beach on a very gloomy day.  After a few minutes, the fog burned off and it was sunny all the way!  We hung around Laguna and I was literally following Robert and his family to get to the nooks and crannies of the place.  It certainly felt like a VIP tour.  While walking (and talking) I found out that Robert actually knew Laguna Beach like the back of his hands and has apparently been taking Isabel to this beautiful little town.  For Isabel, the highlight was the red telephone booth and it actually turned out to be one of my favorite spots during the shoot as well.  So here’s the Ruiz family!

This by far is one of my favorite shots.  So much life, ruffles and laughter to be had with these two!

Isabel and Robert have been married for quite some time, 12 years I believe.  Their affection for each other absolutely showed in the photographs.  While walking (and talking) Isabel mentioned that Robert remembered the outfit she wore on their first date AND proposed to her on the very same spot.

I had such a fantastic time with this family and I am so thankful to have gotten the chance to get to know Sofia and Joaquin as well.  By the way, these kids are naturally born for the camera.  The photo above, was totally candid…
