Jenny & Russ : Married : Smog Shoppe, Los Angeles, CA

They met on a rainy evening. After our first consult, that’s most of what I knew about Jenny & Russ’s first encounter. I wanted to know more of their story, I always want more. After interacting online and spending time with their family and friends at their wedding, I was able to take a deeper look into the core of the “Derman’s”. Everyone adores Jenny & Russ. On top of having brilliant smiles and great style, they are admired for their kind hearts and supportive nature. For being so hardworking and for always helping friends see the positive side of life. Together, they just make everything better.

I love this couple. There, I said it. Jenny and Russ, I’m so happy the stars aligned and I was able to document your wedding. It was a dream working with you and I won’t lie, when you said let’s be friends at the end of the night, my heart squealed. Like, for real. Thank you for being so amazing and I can’t wait for a date night! Click here to see more of their wedding.
