Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings Sarena and Eric

This was one of the most interesting and exciting weddings that I have EVER photographed. Sarena and Eric came to Tori and Dean for help on their Steam Punk meets 1920’s wedding theme. Tori and Dean were able to mix the two wedding themes together and had a beautiful out come. They held the wedding at the Edison downtown Los Angeles. Tori and Dean wanted to surprise the couple so they hired aerial acrobats to dance during the reception. The theme of Steam Punk meets 1920’s was very well represented, even the cake by Cakes by the Pound was completely decked out.

Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Christina and Gavin

Christina and Gavin’s wedding was one of my favorite weddings that I photographed with sTORIbook Weddings. Saddlerock Ranch is one of my most favorite places to shoot, I have done many weddings there in the past. Everything about this wedding was beautiful. The beautiful cake by Hotcakes, the beautiful chocolate desert bar created by Sweet and Saucy Shop, the beautiful table tops, the beautiful vintage furniture. I was also able to capture amazingly beautiful couple shots. I had a fabulous time shooting this event. Congratulations Christina and Gavin!

Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Brenda and Oliver

Brenda and Oliver had a lovely, romantic, Argentine inspired wedding at the Hyatt in Huntington Beach. Their ceremony we held outside on the lawn and their reception was held in a gorgeous room that the Hyatt had never used for a reception before. Brenda wanted to surprise Oliver with a gift on their wedding day. She decided to get him a puppy and Oliver surprised Brenda with a picture he painted. Something that they didn’t air was the Argentina dancers Tori and Dean surprised the couple with. It was a beautiful event. Congratulations Brenda and Oliver!



Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Sherine and George

Sherine and George wanted to have an over the top Arabian Nights wedding because it celebrated their Lebanese heritage. They were married at the Orthodox Church and had their reception at Casa de los Robles, a private wedding venue. Tori and Dean nailed the over the top wedding with a Snake Charmer, a camel, belly dancers, a hooka lounge, drummers and Sherine even arrived to the reception on a homemade magic carpet created by Dean.


Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Erienne's Candy Shoot

 Erienne wanted to be on the other side of the lens for once, because she use to be a wedding photographer herself. So Tori got the great idea of a boudoir portrait for Erienne. She set it up at Melissa Joan Harts’ candy shop in Sherman Oaks, CA, Sweet Harts. It was so much fun shooting there and photographing Erienne and making it a truly special day for her.


Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Erienne and Jeremy

Erienne and Jeremy lost their wedding venue three weeks before their wedding, so Tori and Dean decided to help them out. Tori loved that Erienne was doing a Shabby Chic Wedding theme. Tori and Dean were able to put together a gorgeous Shabby Chic wedding for Erienne and Jeremy at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Ca. Take a look at all the amazing details that were included.

Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings Emily and Levi

Tori and Dean picked Emily and Levi as one of their lucky couples. After they met the couple they started to go over details and Tori found out that Emily wanted hot pink, bling and rats incorporated into their wedding. Rats you may say. Yes, Rats, Butters and Sparkles to be exact. And that is what Tori and Dean did; they created a hot pink, bling, rat wedding for this wonderful couple. It was truly a unique wedding!
