Good evening again everyone! I was going to wait a while before I post Jen and Sam’s wedding photos and go in order for my wedding blog entries, but I shall make this an exception! It was a beautiful morning when Jen and her ladies prepped up at one of W Hotel’s amazing suites, while Sam and the boys suited up at his nearby pad in Los Angeles. Since Jen and Sam’s wedding was officially the second wedding ever hosted here at Los Angeles W Hotel, Wilson, Geoff , and I had to put on our super A game! Anyway, it was not too hard since the W Hotel was a really nice wedding venue and everyone just had a ball of a time. Fortunately, Sophia and her wedding coordinating team performed an outstanding job keeping the entire wedding together while we photographed the event. Throughout the wedding, Sophia always had one of her ladies follow us during the wedding photography session to keep us on the same page with the rest of the wedding vendors, which was so awesome! Overall, outstanding wedding on both front and back end. Everyone get comfortable because there will be A LOT of wedding pictures from Jen and Sam’s wedding here at W Hotel Hollywood.
W Hotel Hollywood
Los Angeles, CA
To set the bar here at W Hotel Hollywood, we climbed up a building to hang Jen’s stunning wedding dress on these decorations. Yes, this area is totally restricted to the general public, but the risk was worth the following epic wedding photograph. What is the fun with out a bit of trouble, right?
Since Jen and Sam were not able to match shoes, they matched the brands. Their wedding shoes were purchased at Salvador Ferragamo. Not bad of a choice if you ask me.
While the ladies hung out and enjoyed their morning, Wilson and Geoff headed to Sam’s pad to photograph a few behind the scenes pictures of Sam and his boys.
Check out those robes! As a wedding present for all the ladies from Jen, she purchased different colored robes for the ladies to wear before jumping into their designated bridesmaids dresses.
I am a sucker for simple, clean, memorable business cards. W Hotel Hollywood passed each of those requirements with flying colors.
This was an interesting little event when the ladies tried to tie Jen into her wedding dress. We managed to capture a few of Jen’s reactions in our photos when the ladies pulled as hard as they can to make everything fit! Take a deep breath and pull!!!
After Jen successfully jumped into her wedding dress, we took a few photos outside in their patio suite before we all moseyed on down to W Hotel Hollywood’s colorful lobby. After the entire wedding party met up, we started our crazy wedding photography session with a WHOLE bunch of remote strobes to capture all the colors and flares that W Hotel Hollywood had to offer.
I think this had to be our favorite wedding photograph of the day! What do you think?
After we had our fill at W Hotel Hollywood, we took the wedding party to the streets to wrap up our photo session. We even managed to persuade a really cool cop to take a picture with our lovely bride.
We took a few last minute wedding portraits before we rushed our couple to their wedding ceremony right on time!
Sealed with a kiss! Congratulations to the both of you!
Yes, that is a Trojan luge. It was a surprise wedding gift from Sophia and her girls, since Jen and Sam were from USC. As a Bruin, I must pass…but I did admit it was pretty cool.
Check out their wedding reception hall untouched before the guests arrived! With wedding decorations this amaing, we took our time to photograph every little detail since so much hard work was put into this one special day.
That wedding cake was SO delicious.
Jen and Sam’s grand entrance and the crowd of wedding guests roared while they strutted down the walkway for their first dance to kick start the night. After a few rounds of photos with all their guests, they cut their wedding cake and danced the night away.
Congratulations again, Jen and Sam! Your wedding here at W Hotel Hollywood was absolutely spectacular. It was such an honor to be your wedding photographers.
Until our next adventure or adventures…keep on the edge of your seat. We will be posting up more wedding and engagement photos soon.

p.s. – I admit it, I took a bite of the wedding cake from Jen’s plate. She gave me the green light though. =D
