Wedding photos at Viceroy Santa Monica:

Taylor was the first bride to book my wedding photography services after launching my new company Aevitas Weddings, making this quite a momentous one for me to capture. She and her groom Sean were getting officially married in Hawaii the previous weekend, but they wanted to throw a wedding reception party for all of their Southern California friends. It was a real privilege that they invited me to be the photographer for their wedding at Viceroy Santa Monica.

I first met Taylor in West LA a few months before the event where she explained what she had planned for this Viceroy Santa Monica wedding reception. She was incredibly sweet and her energy infectious, so I knew from the outset this was going to be a fun wedding to be a part of.

I’ve photographed at the Viceroy Santa Monica before and it is such a great venue, with stunning furniture and decor to work with, as well as a beautiful outdoor pool area. Its modern and chic ambiance really fits in with the Los Angeles lifestyle and perfectly reflected Taylor too.

Getting ready photos at Viceroy Santa Monica:

While Sean was getting ready at home and came to the Viceroy to meet us later, Taylor was getting ready in one of the suites, surrounded by her female family and friends. She had put a high priority on photography, allocating plenty of time for not only getting ready shots, but also a bride portrait shoot around the Viceroy Santa Monica afterwards.

Portraits at Viceroy Santa Monica:

To have so much time to capture portraits on a wedding day is such a rarity, but something I was really delighted about. There were so many features, backdrops, and elements of the hotel to utilize and Taylor was really comfortable behind the camera, adding a lot of personality to the images.

Once Sean arrived, we also incorporated him into the photos, capturing some romantic and playful shots of the two of them around the Viceroy, as well as some creative couple portraits using off-camera flash.

Reception photos at Viceroy Santa Monica:

It was then time for the reception party to get started, beginning with Taylor and Sean’s grand entrance. It was quite an intimate celebration, with around 100 of their closest family and friends, and there was lots of great dance floor action to photograph throughout the evening.
