These two will be tying the knot at The Fire Garden wedding venue which is one of my favorite venues for outdoor receptions in Southern California. Especially if you like music, festivals, and to … party. But more than the properties late night curfew, the lighting and size of the venue is PERFECT for a wedding of 100. The light pours onto the reception like every photographers dream and the property is a blank slate for any kind of bride… despite it’s reputation for attracting a festival type couple.
Like Morgan & Derek who are both artist living in LA. Derek works as a lighting technician and most recently worked on Star Wars!! Morgan travels the world preforming and teaching as a hola hooper. YES a hooper!!! Go follow her @missmojangles. The moment I met them I knew that we would be the perfect match. They wanted something unique for their wedding and had all sorts of plans for using color, lighting, fashion and preforming throughout their big day. I WAS ALL OKAY SIGN ME UP!
For Morgan & Dereks engagement session we went to one of my favorite secret fields. It’s perfectly backlit by the sun and has several palm trees on the horizon. Gives us plenty of room to move around for a non posed engagement session. If you want a similar location for your session, I can help you pick one out or take you here!
