Mountain Mermaid Wedding | Sam + Brett


December 9, 2015

Apart from a couple of weddings each year, I get to shoot at new venues every week. That level of variety is so energizing and gets the creative juices flowing each week. I never underestimate how lucky I am to have that. Living and shooting in Los Angeles means I often have a feeling of being at a mini destination wedding, less than an hour out of the city, or even inside the city! That’s helped by the fact that I still feel like a bit of a tourist but also because the venue options are so varied and many of them make you feel like you could be somewhere else in the world. I’d place Mountain Mermaid in that category. It’s an incredible, probably largely unknown wedding venue.

I remember when I first spoke to Sam about working together, she was so stoked about having found the venue and the minute I arrived I knew exactly why. Perched above the Toping Canyon outside of LA in acres of lush garden and with the main building being a “1930’s architectural gem” as they call it, you can’t really go wrong.

Sam and Brett’s Mountain Mermaid wedding was just the right balance of everything that is important on a wedding day, in my view anyway. The level of focus on family and friends, the simple but meaningful personal touches and the general feel of the day was just perfect. It was an honor to be a small part of it.

I should also mention that it was great working with the awesome No Worries Event Planning team led by Dee for this one. Hope to do so again soon!

Phenomenal work. That last shot is a beauty, and some of those getting ready shots are pure art.
