Spring wedding at The Ritz Laguna Niguel with Lin & Jirsa Photographers

This time of year we start to get photographs from our last years brides. We were pleasantly surprised when these arrived in the inbox. DV Ella had a great time creating this glamorous look for her bride. Lin & Jirsa Photographers were behind the scenes at The Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel.


  • Voluminous Hair
  • Classic Glamour Makeup
  • Perfect Red Lips


Tip: Apply a product to the root of damp hair for effortless volume.

Try Alterna Bamboo Weightless Whipped Mousse $22

Tip: A true red lipstick has a blue undertone that can make your teeth look whiter and it compliments most skin tones to complete the entire look.

Try: Ruby Woo from MAC with Brick liner

I love our brides that make bold choices for the big day! They always have the most amazing images. 

Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone. You won’t regret letting your artist have fun with your look on the big day!

Redondo Beach South Asian Wedding with Smita Photography

We love multicultural weddings, particularly South Asian brides like Deepika. Gorgeous makeup, stunning  jewelry and amazing bridal attire. Smita Photography captured wonderful images that show the details of the big day.

South Asian weddings are  filled with ritual and celebration that continue for several days. There is a pre ceremony Mendhi celebration with the ritual of Henna art on the hands and arms.

The intricate beaded gown is called a Lehenga. The colors and beading of her gown are fantastic!

 Very often our brides need hair and makeup for several days worth of events. Please let us know and we can taylor a package that fits your needs. South Asian weddings are usually big and have many bridesmaids, our team has experience working with a large, diverse bridal party.

Deepika had her hair and makeup Preview with DV Dana at our location in Manhattan Beach. Our studio is convenient for our LA brides.

Thank you Smita Photography for sharing the images and our DV Dana for her beautiful work.

Summertime in La Quinta with Lauren Hillary of Jim Kennedy Photographers

Our favorite new destination for weddings is the desert. Palm Springs, Palm Desert and La Quinta have some of the best wedding venues in Southern California. Our bride Jaquilee was actually from Texas and chose the La Quinta Golf Club for her big day. She was lucky to have the talented Lauren Hillary of Jim Kennedy Photographers with her capturing the sweet details from the perfect tea length dress to the bright pops of color.

Beauty by DV Emmalee

  • Hair was a low bun slightly off the neck to stay cool under the desert sun
  • Accessorized perfectly with the vintage birdcage veil
  • Effortless makeup with a pretty pink lip


The wedding colors were bright and fun reflecting the sweet personality of the bride and her family. What a fun day!

Our awesome airbrush makeup holds up all day, even in the heat of the desert!

Our DV team travels to many Southern California destinations and beyond! 

Where are you getting married?
