Long Beach Temple Israel Bar Mitzvah | Ryan

It was great to be back to Temple Israel for Ryan's Long Beach Bar Mitzvah ceremony this weekend.
Temple Israel is one of our favorites, and we photograph there often--in fact, we'll be returning again this month, and twice in November.

Mazel Tov, Ryan!

Automobile Driving Museum Bar Mitzvah Party | El Segundo

Here's more pix from Liam's Bar Mitzvah party at the El Segundo Automobile Driving Museum. Liam made his grand entrance in a classic blue Thunderbird, driving right onto the dance floor, where he jumped out of the car and danced the afternoon away with many, many of his friends.

Los Angeles Bar Mitzvah | Wilshire Boulevard Temple | Liam

It was Liam's turn at the Torah today, following brother Noah and sister Mia, at the beautiful Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Irmas campus, on the west side.

Liam, a South Bay dance student, had a wonderful grace about him up there, and infectious smile. He brought that big energy afterwards to a big, rockin' party at the El Segundo Automobile Driving Museum, a popular South Bay spot for Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties. It's filled with classic cars, and has a wonderful, intimate ballroom for dancing. We'll be back at the museum, in fact, on 10/16, for another party.

UCLA Engagement Photos | Michelle & Andre

We spent Sunday afternoon with Michelle and Andre on the incredible UCLA campus today and left with some amazing pics of their engagement shoot. It's a thrill to share them here. Between Royce Hall, Powell Library et. all, there are so many awesome backdrops to choose from.

It's hard to pick a favorite here, but we're especially partial to this fun series of the couple running down the quad--can't beat those smiles.

We'll be seeing Michelle and Andre again on October 16th when we meet up in San Pedro for their wedding at the fabulous Mary, Star of the Sea church. Can't wait!

More from Lisa and Matt's Redondo Beach Library Wedding

Here's a fun video montage we put together with images from Lisa and Matt's wedding at the historic Redondo Beach library. We're huge fans of the couple, and love the results--hope you all do too.

Malibu Estate for Weddings & Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

It seems like yesterday that we were up in the Malibu hills, documenting a rocking Bat Mitzvah party at the palatial family home. Cut to fall, 2010, and the party was such a hit, the owner has now opened the Malibu Villa Skyletta home up for brides, grooms, Bar/Bat Mitzvah kids, and filming.
