Jamie + Jason, part two

I was so impressed by the team of photographers Jamie and Jason had on-board for their wedding day! Headed up by Louis and Erin Palos of Louis Palos Photographer, they also had Erwin Wijanto (all the way from Seattle!) along for the ride. Erwin posted some of his images from the day- I just love his style and had to share.

We have absolutely no fun doing our jobs- can't you tell?

Venue spotlight: Huron Substation, Los Angeles

I randomly stumbled across the Huron Substation in one of the many wedding magazines I peruse- could it be any cooler? A little background on the location (from the website):"...the building was built in 1906 from a design by engineer Edward S. Cobb. It is the second oldest surviving substation in the city which housed equipment to convert high-voltage electricity supplied by the Edison Company to the 600 volts current used by the L.A. Railways "Yellow Cars", providing urban transportation for many years". If the history doesn't convince you how unique this location is, then the description from the website just might: "Century old brick walls, arched windows and steel beams give one the sense of a long lost, ancient Los Angeles. The landscaped garden with its industrial deco fountain is unfettered by trend, and propels one into a European sense of intimacy". Check out some of the pictures, courtesy of the Huron Substation website:

And a small taste of what has been done at past weddings and events at the venue (pictures still from the website):
