Wedding photos at The Ebell Club Long Beach:

I first heard from Jessica and Pablo earlier this summer about capturing their wedding at The Ebell Club Long Beach and it was a pleasure to get to know them during their e-session at the Oak Canyon Nature Center.

They were planning an intimate wedding with around 100 of their closest family and friends at Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, followed by a reception at The Ebell Club Long Beach. These are two of my favorite venues and I was really looking forward to having the opportunity to work there again with this wonderful couple.

Getting ready photos at The Ebell Club Long Beach:

My assistant and I began the day at The Ebell Club Long Beach where Jessica was getting ready in the upstairs bridal suite with her mom, sister, grandma, aunt, and best friend. I captured special moments as the bride’s mom helped to secure her bracelet and the two maid-of-honors zipped up her wedding dress, with the natural light absolutely stunning.

Pablo was downstairs in the bar area making his final preparations and I really loved the dark wood furnishings and sophisticated decor. I captured a candid as he straightened his tie and one as he secured his cufflinks, as well as a black and white portrait as he looked out the window of The Ebell Club Long Beach.

We then returned upstairs to photograph a special moment between Jessica and her grandma, with the most important women in her life gathering in the bridal suite. After a portrait of the bride looking radiant in her beautiful gown, Jessica’s dad arrived for what was an incredibly emotional father-daughter first look.

Pre-ceremony portraits at The Ebell Club Long Beach:

We then headed downstairs to the black and white tiled courtyard of The Ebell Club Long Beach where Jessica and Pablo had their first look. I photographed Jessica as she walked towards her groom and their joyous reactions at seeing one another looking so amazing.

We used the opportunity for some portraits of the couple in this loved-up moment, first capturing a wide-angle in the ornate courtyard. I also grabbed a romantic shot as Pablo kissed Jessica’s hand affectionately and a kiss between the couple in front of an arched wooden doorway.

Ceremony photos at Wayfarers Chapel:

It was then time to jump into the shuttle to make the journey to Rancho Palos Verdes and the Wayfarers Chapel – an absolutely stunning venue made from glass and wood. After signing the Wayfarers Chapel wedding book and a quick portrait on the walkway, Pablo’s mom escorted him down the aisle for the start of the wedding ceremony. Jessica followed on the arm of her dad and I captured a creative shot of Pablo’s reaction at seeing his bride in this moment.

I tried to document this intimate wedding ceremony from multiple angles, incorporating the striking architecture of Wayfarers Chapel in wide-angle shots and getting up-close candids as the couple exchange personalized vows and offered flowers to both their moms. After being pronounced “husband and wife”, they then made their joyous recessional walk down the aisle, with a spontaneous kiss at the end.

Post-ceremony portraits at Wayfarers Chapel:

With the winter light fading rapidly, we had to move fast to capture portraits of the couple in and around the Wayfarers Chapel. I grabbed a shot of them embracing atop the cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes and a whimsical portrait as they kissed on one of the tree-lined walkways.

We also went back inside the Wayfarers Chapel for some intimate embraces and a fun shot with their bridal party, including the flower girl and ring bearer. My assistant proved invaluable with the off-camera flash as dusk set in, resulting in some really romantic and dramatic shots.

Reception photos at The Ebell Club Long Beach:

We jumped back into the shuttle for the journey back to The Ebell Club Long Beach, with Pablo taking full advantage of the dancing pole in the middle! After a quick toast between the girls in the bridal suite, Jessica and Pablo made their grand reception entrance in style. This was followed by their first dance and I managed to capture the big dip at the end.

Speeches and toasts followed from Jessica’s dad and sister, then one of Pablo’s groomsmen took to the microphone as the couple watched on from their sweetheart table. Simultaneous parental dances were performed by Jessica and her dad, Pablo and his mom, then everyone hit the dance floor to celebrate this new union.

I photographed Pablo getting down with his aunt and Jessica dancing with her now father-in-law, as well as a young wedding guest showing off his break dancing skills. There was a playful cake cutting ceremony from the bride and groom, then a champagne toast to end what was an incredible day.
