read on to find out how

we'll make your dream wedding a reality

As a wedding photographer in Los Angeles, I love outdoor venues. The hills in our area make beautiful, picturesque backdrops and the way the sun glows during golden hour is my favorite. I live for intimate golden hour romantics, mid-wedding, with just the bride and groom. These are the framers, the ones you want to hang on your walls, look at every day, the moments you want to relive and remember forever. And I would be honored to capture these for you.

Engagement Photos

I'm here to help! Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to worry about creating a timeline. As part of the wedding photography experience with me, I offer my couples a complimentary, custom curated wedding day timeline. 5 days prior to your big day, we will schedule a quick phone call to finalize the timeline. I will then share it with the entire vendor team to ensure that your day runs smoothly.

I work with many amazing vendors. If you need vendor recommendations, let me know and I'm happy to refer you.

Magnolia West! Ariel was a breath of fresh air to work with. From the moment we met, I knew she was the one we wanted to work with. She took the time to meet with us and go through ALL our questions (photography and non photography wedding questions). She went above and beyond with scouting out the best time (lighting) and location for our intimate pictures and bridal party pictures. Her vision was on point! Her execution/direction the day of was perfect! She made sure we got everything we wanted and more! She captured so many wonderful moments and I couldn't be more grateful. She was always super easy going and extremely helpful. I could not imagine using anyone else! Thank you Ariel for capturing everything and more on our wedding day!!!!



Ariel is a pleasure to work with. She is both professional and personal with a side of southern charm. I was so impressed by the way she was able to get us to open up! We were smiling and laughing through the whole session, that ease came across in all of our photos too. I feel like Ariel was able to truly capture who we are in our photos. She easily bends her process so we have both photojournalist quality images and candid portraiture. Through Ariel's lense we captured memories that will last the test of time. I would 10/10 recommend Ariel!

why I do what I do

Weddings breathe life into my soul. A romantic first look, the private exchange of the vows, that last deep breath the bride takes before her daddy walks her down the aisle, golden hour romantics, beautiful flowers, a killer party... I love it all, and the best part--it never gets old.

Afraid of feeling awkward in front of the camera? Not sure what to do with your hands? You're not alone, but don't worry! I've got you! I'll give you direction every step of the way. We'll put on a Spotify playlist and capture real moments between you and your babe. I keep it casual and fun.

my philosophy is simple...

When the party is over, all you'll have to remember your day is your photos. I capture how it felt, so you can remember forever.

Frequently Asked Questions

next page

YES! I will be there thru every step of your journey. I will photograph your engagement shoot thru the grand exit on your wedding day! While I do have a team of second shooters, I will be your lead photographer. Always. I do not use associate photgraphers in my place.

WILL YOU BE OUR ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER?

I almost always lean towards YES. Having a second photographer allows me to capture two different angles and two different perspectives at the same time. A second photographer also allows me flexibility in the timeline, so we are never rushed. I carefully select my second shooters. Their photography and artistic style is always similar and/or complimentary to mine.

do i need two photographers on my wedding day?
and who will the second photographer be?

Do you travel for weddings and engagements?
