Smoky Hollow Wedding El Segundo
When I first met Rhea and Jairo I can’t even begin to tell you how infectious their energy was. What I found even more unique was it was not their individual spirits that were not only magnetic but the way these two love peacocks were together (cawww-ahhh!). They were this super awesome couple who truly enjoyed each other, and did this while planning a wedding in El Segundo at Smoky Hollow Studios. Now I meet a lot of rad couples and was part of the wedding planning process with my wife and I can say if you have not thought about murdering your fiancee at some point through planning a wedding you are a special kind of human. Rhea and Jairo are that special kinds of people, and I simply can not say enough amazing things about them. They truly are wonderful souls who like to have a good time and soon you sill see that because below are some of the photos from their kick ass wedding at Smoky Hollow Studios. Cheers!
Smoky Hollow Studios Wedding Photographer
Rarely, do I make it to Los Angeles to shoot weddings because I mostly shoot on the hottest place on planet fucking Earth: Palm Springs. But I can see definitely get down with shooting more in Los Angeles because 1) the weather is waaaaay cooler, and 2) the city offers a lot of really unique spots for photography. In fact, some of my favorite photos from Rhea and Jairo’s Smoky Hollow Studios wedding were captured outside of the wedding venue.

Smoky Hollow Studio Bridal Suite
One of my personal favorite things about the wedding venue in El Segundo was the bridal suite. The natural light coming into the Smoky Hollow Studios bridal suite was the tits. I mean that in the most positive way possible. I was going to be gender-neutral and say the Smoky Hollow Studios bridal suite was the balls but I think people might be confused. Let me start over, what I am trying to say is the light is flattering, the room is cool, and the bridal suite is a great spot for getting ready photos. I knew we would get through that awkward patch eventually! And honestly, I try to refrain from using the words “tits” and “balls” as much as possible when writing about a wedding day. Here is a little more info on the Smoky Hollow Studios Bridal Suite:

- Full kitchen & restroom

Congrats Rhea and Jairo for putting on one kick ass wedding! I sincerely wish you the absolute best in life from good health to many Liverpool FC wins. Although I would probably say rooting for Liverpool FC is overall not a long term healthy lifestyle choice. You might be better off taking up smoking or free solo climbing Jairo!
