Malibu Beach Engagement Session: Josh & Brandon
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-2017-157.jpg

Josh and Brandon are the sweetest people. They got engaged on the beach, so they wanted to be next to the ocean for their engagement photos too. We chose a quintessential stretch of rocky Malibu coastline just north of Los Angeles and they dressed to impress in black and white suits.

These two smiled every time they looked each other’s way.

I loved Brandon’s red shoes with the suit look. They were such a fun detail.

Southern California has the best sunsets. I love how they soften as they reach the distant horizon over the ocean.

These matching black-striped engagement/wedding rings are so cool! Especially when paired with their suits!

Someone later pointed out to me that the clouds between them were shaped like a heart. I didn’t see it as I shot it but I see it instantly now. I can’t help but think this is a sign that the universe brought these two together.

Rock 'n' Roll Glam Same-Sex Wedding Inspiration
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-2017-131.jpg

You don't have to choose between punk rock edge and a bit of sparkle. This gorgeous wedding look was inspired by rockers who push limits with their style, like classic rock idols David Bowie and Billy Idol or modern rock n rollers like Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie. These two grooms channel their inner rockstars with fashion-forward outfits and unique hairstyles. A black, red, and silver palette keeps the look edgy yet chic. I love how the concept of hard and soft plays out in a mix of textures like leather and plush velvet, studs and sequins. Lyrics on the invitations and signage keep the focus on the musical inspiration.
