Wedding photos at Taglyan Cultural Complex:

I first met Frances and Romeo at my home studio in April last year, with a meeting after they’d both had a long day at work. But they brought a lot of love and I could see the chemistry between them right from the get-go, and I felt that we really clicked. They were planning a big wedding at Taglyan Cultural Complex over the President’s Day Weekend this February and I was excited that they booked me on the spot to be their Los Angeles wedding photographer.

Getting ready photos at The Redbury Hollywood:

Frances and Romeo were getting ready at the gorgeous Redbury Hollywood hotel in Los Angeles, so my wife Charlene and I drove over in the morning to capture all the action. The Redbury Hollywood is a really stylish hotel, with a lot of chic decor and vintage-inspired furnishings. There are just so many great features to work with, including bold red walls and paisley prints, as well as the iconic Vine Street right out the front.

While I was with Frances and her girls making their final preparations, Charlene was with Romeo and the boys in another suite at the Redbury Hollywood. There were lots of warm moments to photograph as Frances gave gifts to the women closest to her and Romeo’s mom helped to secure his boutonniere. I captured a playful shot of Frances’ bridesmaids blowing bubbles over her in the gorgeous suite where they were getting ready, as well as some classic portraits of her in her stunning gown.

Pre-ceremony portraits at The Redbury Hollywood:

Frances and Romeo decided on a first look which we had right outside the Redbury Hollywood on Vine Street. After capturing their reactions at seeing each other looking so amazing, we used the time available for a couple portrait session, both outside in front of the iconic Redbury Hollywood sign and utilizing its interior features.

We staged some couple portraits in front of a vintage-inspired paisley wall and a silhouette beside the naturally-lit suite window, as well as a fun bridal party portrait in a lounge area of the hotel.

Ceremony photos at the Holy Family Catholic Church:

We then drove over to Glendale and the Holy Family Catholic Church where the wedding ceremony was to be held. They opted for a full Catholic mass and there were lots of traditional Catholic rites and rituals to capture in what was a stunning church. I photographed Frances and Romeo lighting a unity candle together and their wedding guests shaking hands in a show of respect, as well as the putting on of chords and veils in what is a popular Filipino Catholic ritual.

The couple offered flowers to Mother Mary and embraced their parents, before making a joyous recessional walk down the aisle as “husband and wife”. A classic car was waiting for them outside to whisk them off to the wedding reception and I grabbed a few portraits of them inside showing off their rings in this loved-up moment.

Reception photos at Taglyan Cultural Complex:

Before their wedding reception at Taglyan Cultural Complex started, I snuck into the ballroom with Frances and Romeo to grab some portraits of them within this gorgeous space. Once their guests had all arrived, they then made their grand entrance, really enjoying the moment and ready to have an unforgettable evening!

With a chandelier hanging above and smoke filling the dance floor, they then performed their choreographed first dance. There were some emotional speeches and toasts, followed by parental dances with both of their parents, as well as one between Romeo and his daughter in what was a touching moment.

Then everyone hit the dance floor to party well into the night, with the Taglyan Cultural Complex boasting state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems which create a real club-like atmosphere. I captured all the action as Frances and Romeo’s wedding guests celebrated this new union in style and really let loose. As the night was coming to an end, I snuck out with Frances and Romeo for a few romantic nighttime couple portraits, incorporating a burbling fountain outside the Taglyan Cultural Complex.

It was such an honor being the photographer for this wedding at Taglyan Cultural Complex and I can’t thank Frances and Romeo enough for selecting me. I know that they’re off to Thailand and the Philippines for their honeymoon and wish them all the success, love, and joy in their married life together.
