Susie + Steven’s intimate summer wedding

Susie + Steven’s Intimate Summer Wedding

Today’s wedding just happens to be one of those that feels so relaxed, you just wish you had been there to share in such a special day.  Malibou Lake Mountain Club provided the perfect venue for Susie + Steven to get married at being that it offered them beautiful accommodations and exclusive use of the stunning lake and park-like grounds.  Surrounded by all their family and friends, they held an intimate wedding in the gardens of this sweet venue and had STUDIO IAM there to document it all. Kerim from My Wedding Blooms created some gorgeous florals with pop of deep blues and bright yellows as the only contrast to all the soft tones of the day.

Anh + Allan Love Session

Anh + Allan Engaged //

Locations: Craig Regional Park, Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour, The Bruery in Placentia, Los Angeles Arts District, Salk Institute in La Jolla, La Jolla Pier

We genuinely believe that simplicity is sometimes best, and engagement sessions are the perfect time to take advantage of this. We always love seeing engagement sessions that are a true representation of the love between the couple. You and your fiance will only be engaged once, so take this time to spend together and capture this treasured moment before wedding planning begins. These two breathtaking engagement sessions taken by Brady Puryear and Cassiano Carromeu are the perfect example of a natural, and simple engagement session, and we hope you draw some wonderful inspiration from this lovely shoot.

Anh and Allan are the two most quirkiest and friendliest people we have met to date!  With just under 2 weeks before their wedding, we are over-joyed and anxious to coordinate this magical affair. Who can say ‘no’ to this adorable couple?

Annalisa + Will Screaming in color

Annalisa + Will// Downtown, Los Angeles, California

When Carrie Bradshaw asked Louise what brought her to New York City, her response was everything– “To Find Love”. Now we’re no NYC, but Annalisa and Will’s engagement session in Downtown Los Angeles captured more love than the screaming lights of New York.

When we heard Annalisa + Will planned a lifestyle engagement session set in DTLA, we were beyond thrilled and excited to see the pictures… and boy were we in for a treat! They’re spectacular! From coffee date at Bottega Louie, sweet stroll through Pershing Square, stunning views of the city at Perch, and the glorious sunset… we could not have asked for a better day.

With just less than 2 months until their wedding to be held at Cafe Pinot in the heart of downtown, we are so honored to be a part of their special day.  Absolutely one of the sweetest couples we have ever met.  You can clearly see they found love and it’s truly undeniable.  Taylor Swift said it best: “While the rest of the world is black and white, these sweethearts are screaming in color”.

Sandra + Jonathan’s Classic Ballroom Wedding

Sandra + Jonathan’s Classic Ballroom Wedding

Amongst all the beautiful things in a wedding we truly admire, nothing takes our breath away when we see couples light up. The perfect example would be these two, Sandra and Jonathan. We like to call them the perfect duo.  It was such an amazing experience to see this entire wedding unfold from start to finish, ESPECIALLY during our most favorite portion of the day… the first looks! That’s right! There wasn’t one but TWO first looks with Jonathan and Sandra’s dad… and it completely melted our hearts!  Just see for yourself below, as the brilliant photographer, Daniel Johung and the most incredible videographer, BYdesign Films was able to document one of the most unforgettable moments of a lifetime!

The perfect pair

Susie + Steven//Ferndell Park, Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, & LA Arts District

Susie and Steven are both artists by trade, (Susie being an arts major, and Steven loving every aspect of her work), so when it came to selecting the location for their engagement session, downtown LA arts district, Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica Beach, Ferndell Park and the Griffith Observatory were all the perfect spots to represent their love for the outdoors, and their appreciation for art!

Having been together for a few years and working and living together in Korea, this couple knew they were the perfect match for each other instantly.  When asked how the proposal went down, Susie replied “It was magical”- and in that moment, we looked at the couple and our hearts just swooned.

This engagement session captured by Studio I am will leave you in big smiles and warm hearts. We guarantee it.
