Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

That nostalgic, cozy feeling you get when you vist your childhood home for the holidays, the memories that flood when you hear your favorite song...

Anyone can snap a photo, but not every photo will allow you relive your dreams.

That's where I come in! Your wedding day is all about YOU. I believe in capturing your love story, your way. I love getting to know you, your friends and family and seeing your genuine connection. I'm all about photos that take you back in time and make you feel the emotion of the moment.

Think about it...

I'm Ariel, your Los Angeles wedding photographer.
I'm pretty obsessed with taking beautiful photos of happy people celebrating their lives together.

hello gorgeous


As a premier wedding photographer in Los Angeles, it's my job (and my joy) to see things that others don't--the look on the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time, that last deep breath a bride takes before she walks down the aisle, the tear that runs down a father's cheek as he gives his daughter away. These are the moments I live for on a wedding day. These are the moments that, if they're not captured, you won't even realize they happened, but these are the moments that make you feel. When you look back at your wedding album in 20 years, I want you to remember the love and excitement on his face, your grandmother's ring that was tied to your bouquet, the getaway dress and glitter shoes that you wore as you ran under the sparklers to your car...

If these are the things you want to remember, if this is what you want to feel when you look back at your photos, head to my Experience page to find out how we'll make your dream wedding a reality!

"Please get Ariel for your wedding if you are blessed with the opportunity! Not only is she amazing at her job, she is such a kind person and made every aspect of it so easy for me..."

My style is authentic, timeless and romantic. I prefer a mix between candid and styled photos. The result is comfortable and relaxed.

I love colors that make you feel the emotion of the moment.
