Baby Isabella – Three Months Old

10.24.14 | Portraits, Families & Kids

Two years ago, I had the honor and pleasure of photographing Melissa & David’s elegant and gorgeous wedding at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. When I say honor and pleasure, I mean those words whole-heartedly as working with them from our initial meeting to this very day has never been anything but fun and easy. I love this family and am so lucky I get to have clients like them who keep coming back to me to photograph the most important moments in their life.

In June, Melissa & David welcomed beautiful baby Isabella into the world. Instead of a newborn session, they opted for a session when she was about 12 weeks old, after they had time to settle into their new home and have her nursery ready. Though I love newborn sessions and think they are so special because they get to document those very first days of the baby’s life, this session was so much fun because we really got to see her sweet personality show through. Plus, those eyes! Those gorgeous, big blue eyes!

Melissa is an interior designer, so I had no doubt that the nursery would be beautiful. It was a dream to shoot in this sweet space they have created for their little girl. Here are my favorite images from their session…

    Oh my goodness, Heather, these are just SO beautiful! I’m the photographer who showed up at the end of the night and met you on the dance floor. :) I’m so glad Steph sent me this link, I was so excited to see the images and they are just stunning.

A Traditional Sri Lankan Wedding – Meera & Jey

10.9.14 | Wedding Photos

Last year, I photographed Anjana & Vijay’s beautiful, traditional Sri Lankan wedding, and this year I had the honor of photographing her beautiful sister’s wedding as well. These wedding days are long, but so full of love and respect for age-old ritual and traditions, as well as an overwhelming love for family and community. This day was a true celebration of two people coming together, two families coming together, all in the presence of their entire families and larger community. It was so rich with love, history, and was visually so vibrant. Plus, they threw a heck of a party for all 550 guests!

Meera & Jey – Thank you so much for asking me to document your day. I loved every minute of it!

Meera was absolutely radiant on her wedding day. Hair and makeup were done by the talented Kacee Geoffroy.

They chose the Long Beach Hyatt Regency as their venue and they had an incredible view of the Long Beach harbor and the Queen Mary.meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-002 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-003 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-004 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-005 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-006 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-007 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-008 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-009 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-010 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-011 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-012 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-014 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-016 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-017 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-018 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-019

This moment, where the groom places this special necklace on the bride, is the most important part of the ceremony and is always an exciting moment for everyone.meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-032 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-033 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-035 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-037 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-041 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-043

After the ceremony, we had  a little break while the families rested a bit and everyone changed into their reception outfits. We resumed with family photos later that afternoon. Here is baby Shreya who has already grown so much since I photographed her newborn session a few months ago. meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-044 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-045meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-046 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-047 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-048 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-049 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-050 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-052 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-053 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-054 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-055 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-056 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-057 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-058 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-059 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-060 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-061 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-062 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-064 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-065 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-066 meera-jey-sri-lankan-wedding-067

My favorite part of the reception was when Jey’s cousin performed for the couple and all of their guests.
