Sportsman’s Lodge Wedding

Sportsman’s Lodge Wedding in Studio City, California.

Luis and Jahaira

Luis and Jahaira were married at the Sportsman’s lodge wedding venue in studio city. I was associate shooting for Cj Martin Media. Luis and Jahaira were one of the kindest and positive people I have meet in while. After hearing about their story I truly was honored to be with them during this celebration. You see…they had recently lost their twin babies during birth and having a 1 1/2 year old son myself this story really hit home. luis was so excited to tell me about this wagon that he had custom made in the memory of their two babies Grace and Noah. He wanted to give the wagon to her before the ceremony…”Kinda like a first touch” I’m not going lie, it choked me up inside. I can’t even imagine what they went through. It made me realized that even though Grace and Noah were only here for a short visit, They were loved so much! As luis and Jahaira joined hands and I witnessed them saying their vows to each other, you knew that their love was so strong that it would last forever.
