Encino Wedding Photography

Carly and Ben’s wedding took place at Valley Beth Shalom in Encino. This synagogue is HUGE! The ketubah signing, cocktail hour, wedding ceremony, and reception all took place in different rooms inside of VBS and there was an outdoor garden area for the portraits. My favorite part about Carly and Ben’s wedding was just how much fun they all had together and how much the love between Carly, Ben, their families and friends was evident throughout the day and night.

I love the old Hollywood glamour feeling of these portraits of Carly taken inside the bride’s prep room.
