This past Saturday I shot Nina & Rommel’s wedding at the beautiful Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels also known as the LA Cathedral. I have been wanting to shoot at the LA Cathedral for a couple years, so, when we first met last Fall to talk about their wedding day, I was really excited because I loved them as a couple and their venue choice. I am so glad they choose me to be there for their special day!!!
Going into Nina and Rommel’s wedding day I was really nervous and excited. This is a common occurrence to me and nearly every other wedding photographer, since we understand the importance of what we are about to capture. Even the fact that Nina & Rommel favorited 90% of their engagement photos on their online gallery didn’t help to calm my nerves and give me better night sleep the night before.
There are some many great photos from this wedding, here are just some of my favorites!!
The day started off at the iconic Westin Bonaventure in downtown Los Angeles capturing the girls getting ready.
Nina is stunning!
Some details while the girls are getting ready
Nina and her girls working on the bustle her dress so I can shoot it.

I love this next image captured by Justin who was assisting me at the wedding
Some portraits before leaving the hotel
Next we headed over to the LA Cathedral to shoot Rommel and his guys.
Once the guys were hidden away the girls arrived for photos
A few details of the flowers
Nina getting help with her cathedral length veil
I love this shot of Nina and her parents ready for the big day.
As I was down in front of the cathedral capturing the processional Jonathan (my intern/Nina’s cousin) captured this amazing image of Nina waiting to walk down the aisle.
Here is my view of Nina coming down the aisle. I am so glad I rented the Canon 300mm 2.8L IS for the ceremony.
Nina’s parents met her midway down the aisle.
Rommel coming to take his bride
The Canon 14mm 2.8L II also came in handy!
The final blessing
