There’s a very intimate and clearly personal vibe to an in home engagement session. A couple’s home and décor says a lot about who they are, what they enjoy and can make a big statement in a photo. From grungy to elegant and everything in between, there’s beauty to be found in every home – particularly when there’s love there. I personally adore viewing these intimate in home sessions so when Lacey and Mac decided to utilize their amazing Hollywood apartment for their engagement session I couldn’t have been more excited! I had always wished a client would request this sort of session but it hadn’t happen for me yet. And now here we are!

Lacey and Mac wanted to do something a little more unique than the average casual in home session so they decided to go for a more formal, glam look instead! As soon as I arrived to their apartment, which was right in the heart of LA, I was blown away. You don’t see these kinds of apartments every day in LA anymore. There was real wood floors, vintage inspired moldings, arched doorways, chandeliers, and the list continues. I probably told them I loved their home way too many times but it was that good. Am I right?

By the end of the day we had captured some amazing memories for them to cherish and we even managed to snag a few shots of their beloved cat and dog. For anyone curious about doing an in home session of their own please contact me HERE! I would love to chat with you.

I met Maggie and Chris through a wonderful LA wedding coordinator, Jennifer Laskey, who represents some of the coolest venues all over the city like Madera Kitchen and Rancho Chiquita in Malibu. As soon as I heard that Chris and Maggie would be hosting their spring wedding at The Holding Co I was eager to join their vendor team.

The Holding Co is a dream venue located in Los Angeles between Silverlake and DTLA. While this venue is on the smaller side and meant for more intimate celebrations there is no lacking in beautiful and, above all, unique décor. The many details found throughout the space, such as the burnt orange brick wall, a vintage multi-paned glass window, hanging string lights, the wood and tin walls outside, an abundance of plants and a bright white indoor space with a loft above, add so much life and character to the venue. You hardly need to decorate anything because it looks so well put together already. But I think my favorite feature of The Holding Co is they used to be an auto shop and the current owners decided to leave the garage door installed and use it as a doorway into the interior space. Thoughtful and unique characteristics like that really stand out to guests as well as in pictures and help make the event that much more memorable.

And the venue became even brighter and more fresh with the help of Empty Vase, who made so many amazing floral pieces. A few of my favorites included the hanging garland for the ceremony and dessert backdrop, countless extravagant bouquets placed all around for décor, and the garlands that laid on the long dining tables and spilled over the edges all the way to the floor. I can’t stress enough how big of a role flowers play at a wedding. Especially when they look like these! Florals help set a very specific aesthetic for an event and can help a room feel romantic, elegant, clean, fresh and pretty much any other adjective you could ever want! As a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I’m always so thrilled when I get to photograph beautiful flowers on a wedding day.

Congratulations to the new, happy couple!
