Stephanie + Roger // Sunnyside Cemetery Wedding photos // Long Beach, Ca

Sposto Photography_Blog_0727

Stephanie and Roger are true Long Beachians at heart. So much so, that they decided to tie the knot in Long Beach’s very own Cemetery. The same cemetery where some of the founding members of the city are buried in! It’s the oldest and most spooky cemetery in the city however, somehow at the right time of day, there’s just a glimmer of light, a little glow and some romance to be found. This cemetery is home to a lot of long beach events such as pop-up movies during the summertime hosted by Long Beach Cinematheque! This civil ceremony was a surprise to everyone as to not spoil the BIG WEDDING that would happen out of state and later on in the year however, it seemed fitting to celebrate a union in the location where it all began. Stephanie wore a lace halter linen gown and Roger chose a velvet sport coat. Perfect for the setting. Celebrating October, with some gorgeous California light, I present to you Stephanie and Roger. Bride and Goul!

Jessica and Tad // Engaged // Laguna Beach, California

Sposto Photography_Blog_0707

Jessica and Tad’s love was so intoxicating on this sun drenched shoot in Laguna Beach, California. We had such a blast playing in the sand and climbing on the rocks talking about their plans for the big day. I’m so grateful to have this time with my clients to get to KNOW them and interact with their story a bit especially when many of my clients, like Jessica, live in places like San Francisco, London, and New York! I couldn’t be more excited for Jessica and Tad’s wedding. Especially after this session. Their style, their personality and their love inspire me so much to create beautiful art for them. Congratulations Jessica and Tad!

Leah and Mike // Married // Hamilton Oaks Winery // San Juan Capistrano, California

Sposto Photography_Blog_0694

Leah and Mike’s charming California wedding featured vibrant reds amongst the amber waves of grain of Hamilton Oaks Winery in San Juan Capistrano, CA. What had started out as a rainy day forecast became a gorgeous, sun kissed wedding ceremony followed by a festive reception under the stars. The ceremony included gorgeous custom doors built for the bride and groom and assembled by the bride’s father. The reception details featured high and low floral arrangements along with tea cup candles made by the mother of the bride! It was a truly magical day.

I guess I can safely say that I have some pretty spectacular clients. We photograph all sorts of people from all sorts of walks of life, professions, and personalities. It’s not every day that I get to photograph a fellow wedding photographer but when I get to, it’s pure magic. I love how Malia and Joe’s attention to detail came across in their photographs. They planned their outfits perfectly,  the hair and makeup was on point! And, most importantly, they are SO in love. These photos prove that their wedding will be nothing short of AMAZING and I feel incredibly honored to have been selected to document it for them. Congratulations Joe and Malia! This weekend is going to be of the hook! Sposto Photography_Blog_0667 Sposto Photography_Blog_0646 Sposto Photography_Blog_0663 Sposto Photography_Blog_0664 Sposto Photography_Blog_0643 Sposto Photography_Blog_0652 Sposto Photography_Blog_0653 Sposto Photography_Blog_0654 Sposto Photography_Blog_0644 Sposto Photography_Blog_0647 Sposto Photography_Blog_0648 Sposto Photography_Blog_0649 Sposto Photography_Blog_0650 Sposto Photography_Blog_0662 Sposto Photography_Blog_0651 Sposto Photography_Blog_0659 Sposto Photography_Blog_0660 Sposto Photography_Blog_0655 Sposto Photography_Blog_0656 Sposto Photography_Blog_0658 Sposto Photography_Blog_0657 Sposto Photography_Blog_0666 Sposto Photography_Blog_0661 Sposto Photography_Blog_0665

Mid Century Modern Wedding Inspiration // Howl // Long Beach, Ca

As a collective, we were so excited to showcase one of Long Beach’s newest venues now available for weddings! Howl! This charming loft space in the heart of Downtown Long Beach is a perfect place to host an intimate wedding with a fun and modern atmosphere. The recently renovated early 1900s building will host a wide range of community events from weekly yoga, monthly evening outdoor music, and pop-up retail events. A private outdoor courtyard in conjunction with a 2,500 square foot indoor open floor plan that features exposed brick, hardwood floors and original window frames create a uniquely visual space for any type of event. We were so excited to bring on such talented local vendors to provide a visual demonstration of what can be done with this space. We hope to see you in Long Beach!

We couldn’t be more honored to have had this beautiful wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!! Click HERE for the full feature!

This enchanted evening took place at the iconic Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang California. Home to some of the most prestigious animals in the world, this working ranch is a sanctuary for horse lovers. The bride got ready in the stone cottage while her groom buttoned up in the groom’s salon adorned with childhood relics of The Horse Whisperer himself. They celebrated under the twinkling lights of sycamore lane, a tree-lined roadway transitioned into the most beautiful reception area. I couldn’t have asked for better clients and a better team to have celebrated this marvelous day!

Allyson and Jaz // Married // Carondelet House // Los Angeles, Ca

Sposto Photography_Blog_0391

We are so excited to have had this wedding featured on Style Me Pretty this August! To see the full feature click here: STYLE ME PRETTY

Constructed in 1928, this gorgeous Italian Villa offered such an amazing backdrop for Allyson and Jaz’s wedding. The exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and endless natural light painted a lovely scene for their guests to enjoy. Allyson and Jaz chose a vibrant spring color pallet of pinks and purples. Which Lavenders Flowers just knocked out of the park with their floral design. Green Apple Event Co styled the ceremony site with glowing candles and lovely vineyard chairs to complement the chic charm of this incredible venue. Dressed to the nines, the guests began to arrive shuffling through the courtyard to take their seats for the main event. Having not seen each other before the ceremony, Allyson and Jaz had a very emotional and joyous reunion down the aisle and into each other’s arms. The heartfelt ceremony concluded with a roar of applause and support for the newlywed couple. The dinner service was impeccably executed by Tres L.A. served by their dapper waiters appropriately styled for the event. Everything from the champagne trey pass to the delicious dessert table was served with love and style. As the heartfelt toasts began and the music began to play, Allyson and Jaz concluded their night with a dance under the arches of iconic grand room. It truly couldn’t have been a more lovely evening.

Mar and Scott // Married // Terranea Resort // Palos Verdes, Ca

Sposto Photography_Blog_0309

Mar and Scott’s Gorgeous wedding took place at the fabulous Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California. When we met and started talking about their plans for the big day, we just knew we had to be there to capture it on film. Mar and Scott did an incredible job incorporating colors they love, sentimental pieces they love, and people they love into what turned out to be a flawless event. I loved how everything came together. Mar chose BHLDN as a”One-stop-shop” to showcase her wedding items. Everything from the pillows on the bed to the happy sunshine yellow reception uplighting, Mar and Scott’s personality was reflected in each detail of this event. We couldn’t be more grateful to have been a part of their day and now, their lives. We love you!
