Wedding photos at Bel-Air Bay Club:

I really had a blast being the wedding photographer at Ochia and Jose’s Bel-Air Bay Club wedding. This couple are just so full of joy and love, making my job incredibly easy! I met Ochia at my studio about a month before the actual wedding date, then Skyped with both her and Jose a couple of weeks after that. Although I didn’t meet Jose in person until the actual morning of the wedding, he was just such a true gentleman and they both were an absolute pleasure to work with on these Bel-Air Bay Club wedding photos.

Getting ready photos at the Bel-Air Bay Club:

Many of the weddings I photograph involve going between two or more venues, but this one was all at the Bel-Air Bay Club, which boasts a beautiful garden courtyard setting, right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. I photographed both the bride and groom as they were getting ready, combining close-up portraits with more creative shots that utilized the natural lighting conditions and reflective mirrors.

Ceremony photos at the Bel-Air Bay Club:

The couple had decided to not do a “first look” session. As a result, when Ochia walked down the aisle, accompanied by her parents, that was the first time Jose saw her that day, and quite a special moment to capture. The elegant bridal arch of the Bel-Air Bay Club, with the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean behind, just makes for such an idyllic wedding ceremony setting. The black and white colors that Ochia and Jose had chosen, not only for themselves, but the entire bridal party, made the rich colors of the garden and ocean that much more vibrant.

Portraits at the Bel-Air Bay Club:

After the wedding ceremony itself, I captured some intimate portraits of the newly married couple in the private estate setting of the Bel-Air Bay Club. With a stunning courtyard area and rustic stone walls, there was no shortage of chic and sophisticated feature points to use in these Bel-Air Bay Club wedding photos.

Reception photos at the Bel-Air Bay Club:

The reception then kicked into full swing, with Jose serenading Ochia with a traditional mariachi band and a playful photo booth set up for guests to be silly in! Let me just say straight up that Ochia and Jose’s family and friends know how to dance, and I had a lot of fun capturing all the moves on the Bel-Air Bay Club dancefloor. I then took some nighttime portraits of the couple in the courtyard of the Bel-Air Bay Club, using the low-light and fountain to create some dramatic images.
