Tuere and Danny were referred to me by one of my past wedding couples, Genevieve and Jose. Tuere and Danny’s wedding day started off at the InterContinental hotel on the Avenue of Stars in Los Angeles and ended at The Mark for Events on Pico Boulevard. Tuere is a physician at the Los Angeles jail and Danny is a Sherriff in East LA. As their wedding photographer, I was thrilled to find out they met on the job and it was love at first sight. Well, it wasn’t really love at first sight but lots of people think that makes for a cool story when you write about it in a wedding-related blog post. Here’s a small sampling of photos from their wedding.
This was the moment that Tuere’s father saw her for the first time on her wedding day. It was an emotional
moment for both of them. Tuere has told me that this is her favorite photo from the wedding day.
We were a bit limited in terms of time and location availability but I was able to put together this
stylized photo by simply using furniture sitting outside the front of the InterContinental hotel.
My second photographer captured this photo of me showing one my photos to Danny And Tuere.
I wanted to make sure that they knew how awesome they were looking in their photos!
The now famous Number 3. One of my signature photographs.
The lobby of the InterContinental hotel was crazy busy, but I was able to capture this
image in the split second when nobody was standing behind them.
Tuere wanted to honor her grandmother and grandfather, so her bouquet
features her grandmother’s ring and her grandfather’s dog tag. He
was a distinguished veteran of World War II.

Tuere’s mother and father share a moment in the midst of the family portraits. Her mom doesn’t like this photo very much but
everyone else loves it and says it really shows off the spirit of their relationship. I go with “everyone else” on this one.
Tuere’s dad delivers his toast. He’s a funny guy!

As a wedding photographer, I’d like to thank the bridesmaid in the back for the supplemental flash!
