Genevieve and Jose’s wedding and reception were held at the LoftSEVEN Penthouse in the Haas Building on Seventh Street in downtown Los Angeles. Adding excitement to the day was the May Day Immigration Rally which took over that part of downtown earlier in the day. That being said, since Genevieve is an immigration attorney, we certainly wove that event into our photography.
The HAAS Building in downtown Los Angeles — the site of our event.

Genevieve and the bridesmaids arrive downtown. As Gen is an immigration attorney I thought it only natural to incorporate Immigration Rally protestors into the background of this photograph. Now I’m a photojournalist! (inside joke)
Who, What, When, and Where (was this an English assignment?)
The shoes with 7 inch heels. Well, maybe not 7–but they were tall!
The rings again! Please don’t fault me for having two ring shots in one blog post
The Window Slats
And from another angle …
Gen with her father and sister.
Gen and Jose see each other for the first time on their wedding day. When I’m working with couples who see each other before the ceremony, I always try to fashion a special moment.
I’m sure I have a photo of Jose dipping Gen and kissing her passionately … but this is a PG blog so I left it out.
I rarely include traditional portraits in my blog posts. That being said, here’s one to appease the screaming masses who are always asking to see them.
The cool thing about this photo is Gen’s dad walking up the steps in the background.
We take to the streets for a little taste of downtown Los Angeles — Rob Greer style!
Crossing the street never looked so good!
Los Angeles — need we say more?
I love photos like these as I hope they convey this history of the moment when viewed decades from now. For example, in the background we have an $8 price for parking, several types of cars, coin operated parking meters, and the logo for a fast food joint. How much will those things change in 10, 20, or 30 years
I found a pretty cool location across the street from the HAAS Building …
… and Gen and Jose made it even better.

And the father daughter dance was WILD! (Gen’s sister joined the fun!)
