MAGNOLIA WEST PHOTOGRAPHY

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN
LOS ANGELES | SANTA BARBARA | SAVANNAH

owner & lead photographer

about me

I was born and raised in, "The Hostess City of the South," Savannah, GA. The hubs and I, along with our two boys, now live in the Greater Los Angeles area.

My love for weddings began in Savannah in 2003. I have served brides in nearly every aspect of the wedding industry. From catering, to hair and makeup, to planning and decorating... You name it, I've probably done it. In 2018, I picked up a camera for the first time and never looked back.

I'm Ariel

I'm a cross between refined southern elegance and relaxed California.

01

my hometown

It's my favorite place in the whole world. I draw inspiration from the refined and elegant culture, the rich history, the colors of the buildings, and the 1800's architecture.

02

guilty pleasure

Buying luxury handbags. Watching Friends and Sex and the City on repeat. And lately... Emily in Paris anyone??

03

rosé all day?!

Yes please! Brut Rosé Champagne is my go-to if I'm at home. If I'm out on the town, you'll find me with a marg or vodka soda with lime.

my favorite things:

04

HUMAN

This is my hubs, Brandon. He's my lobster. We met and fell in love in college while he was playing baseball on the East Coast.

05

french fashion

I love the timeless, classic, simplicity of all things French fashion. Black is my happy color.

06

wedding day momemt

That moment after the ceremony when my couples realize their forever starts right then. The groom's reaction when he sees his bride for the first time is a close second!
