There is no better city to photograph a wedding than in Los Angeles. From the iconic landmarks of Griffith Park and The Beverly Hills Hotel to the gorgeous beaches of Malibu, Santa Monica and Venice, the wedding photography Los Angeles has to offer is endless. The industrial, urban side of Los Angeles is great for modern and classic wedding photography. Historical buildings like the Los Angeles Union Station, which shows off some of the rich culture that LA has to offer, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a Los Angeles structure that celebrates contemporary artwork and architecture, make great focal points for wedding photography. With the stunning city views from the Hollywood Hills and the bold skyline of Downtown LA, there is truly a wealth of beauty for wedding photographers in Los Angeles to capture. The beach towns of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Long Beach are also ideal locations for Los Angeles wedding photography because of their natural beauty, abundance of light, and openness. From ocean landscapes and long stretches of golden sand to swaying palm trees and rocky shorelines, beaches lend to amazing wedding photography opportunities. But for the bride with an eye for historic landmarks and a love of the ocean, the iconic Santa Monica Pier is the perfect spot for spring or summer wedding photos. With grand city backdrops and unique cultural buildings, LA offers some of the best venues for wedding ceremonies and receptions. An additional perk of photographing an LA wedding is the year round warm and sunny weather, which is perfect for a simple church ceremony at locations like the Cathedral of Saint Vibiana, an outdoor garden wedding at Descano Gardens, or a breezy beach venue at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. So, if you are planning a wedding in Los Angeles and are in need of a lively, talented and passionate photographer, Jenna Bechtholt Photography is the perfect choice for you!


Jenna is a Los Angeles wedding photographer serving all of Southern California – from Santa Barbara to San Diego. Jenna has a very simple and relaxed style when working as a wedding photographer in Los Angeles. She loves to capture sweet and intimate moments between a couple, and share their unique love story on film. Jenna loves producing bright, dreamy and romantic photographs. She creates this style by overexposing her images and using a very low aperture to blur backgrounds and create a shallow depth of field. She is also known for capturing beautiful wedding images right before sunset, during the golden hour, where she loves to incorporate bursts of sun flare that give her pictures a warm and angelic glow from the sun hitting the glass of the lens. What keeps Jenna inspired as an LA wedding photographer is light and motion, and she works hard to incorporate the best of both in every wedding she photographs. She likes thoughtfully decorated wedding spaces, soft lighting and lots of flowers! Capturing the unique beauty and special details of every Los Angeles wedding is what Jenna does best and what she loves to do. We are excited to expand our services to neighboring states such as Washington, Arizona and Utah. Jenna Bechtholt Photography is also available for worldwide travel as a destination wedding photographer to capture magical weddings all across the globe.

Some of Jenna’s favorite wedding locations in Los Angeles are the Langham Huntington Hotel, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Park Plaza Hotel. For the nature friendly bride and groom, the SmogShoppe and Marvimon, located in the heart of Los Angeles, are a few of her favorite green wedding venues that incorporate energy saving capabilities, vertical gardens and décor made from recycled materials.
