Klaus Puck & Casey Freer’s Outdoor Garden Wedding Photography

This beautiful wedding was in Malibu up in the Topanga Canyon hills.   This area of Malibu is like another world compared to everything else in Los Angeles.  Beautiful rolling hills and a wedding at sunset!  Doesn’t get better than that.  An outdoor garden wedding with a reception at twilight creates the scene for some beautiful wedding photography.  Obviously the food was amazing because it was catered by Wolfgang Puck, the groom’s brother, and Klaus is an operations partner in the company.   Watch for some of the details to be featured in an upcoming issue of  Town & Country.

Wedding Photography at Lost Canyons Golf Club

Photographed this beautiful wedding in Simi Valley at the Lost Canyons Golf Club.  The location was picture perfect with the club house overlooking a beautiful vista of rolling hills along with the golf course.   Rachel and Chris are such a beautiful couple inside and out, it was a joy to be a part of their big day.

Anesu Hi,

Absolutely love your work! Bumped into it going through a Creativelive video. I especially love this wedding….particularly the shots in the open sun. How did you shoot these? I always have difficulties shooting in the sun. They’re always high contrasty…too dark or too blown out.strong shadows. squinty faces. Would love to hear from you how you tackled these…where are your subjects facing? did you fill flash? diffusors/bouncers/reflectors?

Really appreciate any help.


admin Thanks Anesu! We tackle shooting in direct sun in three different ways:
1. Use Speedlight Flash to balance the sun (only works in TTL mode because otherwise the sync speed stops at 1/250th which isn’t fast enough to beat the sun)
2. Shoot with the sun directly behind the subject and reflectors in front
3. Have the subject facing the sun in a pose with eyes closed.

I think I used all three of those options on this wedding!

Wedding Photography in Santa Clarita

What a perfect day and a perfect couple!  There were so many amazing details at this wedding I have to do a whole separate post for the details!  So this is just part one….



Katie gave Jonathan this bike as a wedding present!  But then Jonathan gave Katie a bike as a wedding present!!!  They didn’t even know they were getting each other matching gifts.  Katie attached some handwritten notes on the back of Jonathan’s new bike….

Katie & Jonathan’s Engagment Photography

Only a few weeks until Katie and Jonathan’s wedding in Santa Clarita! Here is a preview of the cute couple. We did some engagement photos in the studio before heading outside. These two are such great sports it was fun to hang out! We ended the day with Chipotle and Yogurtland. Can’t ask for a better day than great photos and great food!

Had to try out a little ring flash!


Anastasia Diamond…Grammi These photos are the perfect prelude to the Wedding Pictures 🙂

Jeannett & Matthew’s Wedding Photography

This wedding was extra special because it was on New Year’s Eve!  We rang in the New Year with champagne and dancing and of course celebrating this great couple!  The wedding and reception was held at Khoury’s Restaurant right on the Long Beach waterfront.  Congratulations Jeannette & Matthew!
