Wedding: Muoy + Dave @ CSU Long Beach Japanese Garden

CSU Long Beach Japanese Garden Koi Pond wedding

The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSU Long Beach has got to be one of the most asked about wedding venues by my clients when they see my portfolio.  It’s not hard to understand because that look and feel is a rarity in Los Angeles area.  Either that or maybe my passion towards Japanese food translates into my photos. =)  It is indeed one of my favorite places to shoot.  Sure it’s not the easiest places to photograph because there’s only one path and it’s blocked off by the bridge during the ceremony and to get to one side to the other there’s only one long way around the back without having to walk past the whole wedding party on the bridge. But then again it’s just absolutely breathtakingly stunning everywhere you look.

After the engagement session with Muoy and Dave, I knew this was going to be a special wedding – 1. I love the Japanese Garden, 2. Muoy and Dave are so in love that it really shows in the pictures, and 3. Dave specially requested more vintage look in their photos.  The day started off relatively calm at a nearby hotel where Muoy got ready in the morning, and the weather turned out absolutely beautiful throughout the day.  It could have been better if I weren’t having a fever, but a little temperature wasn’t going to stop me from working hard!
