 Your Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

Ian Johnson Photo – Wedding Photographer

A picture is worth more than a thousand words. While the task of a wedding photographer is to capture an event, I try to do more than that. Bringing life to my photos by capturing the story that is a wedding day, the happiness, the atmosphere, the passion, the joy, and the love. Capturing the true essence of the day and the wishes of the couple is what I do.

What separates me from other Wedding Photographers?

Simply stating what my  ”Ian Johnson Photo Philosophy” is, does little to tell you about what my true work is all about. I have been a fashion and celebrity photographer in Los Angeles, my work has always been described  ” cinematic” UK magazine Weddings and Home described my work I think perfectly as “a distinct cinematic storybook edge”.  I also featured on Dreamworks/Mark Burnett TNT’s TV show “Wedding Day”.  Dianne Valentine a host, and celebrity wedding planner said  ” Ian Johnson Photo has energy and inspiration on wedding days, which is truly contagious”  Often when couples see my work, I’m asked whether or not the people in the pictures are models, because of the “Hollywoodish glamour” presented in the photos.  However, the answer is quite straightforward – over 99% of my couples are not celebrities, but rather everyday working people that love my work. I just try to make the couples day, telling their unique story and capture the wedding I can.

Prices and Availability

I’m also a destination wedding photographer and seeing my work, you might think that it is far out of your price budget range. However, my packages and prices are fairly reasonable and affordable.  Because I only photograph one destination wedding a month I have a lot of weekends free to photograph Los Angeles Weddings. Furthermore, while my schedule sometimes can be quite busy, you are free to contact me with your wedding date and your destination, even if the event is just a week or two away, I really am here to help. If I cannot photograph your wedding I belong to a network of photographers whose work I love and have the same philosophy as myself

LA Wedding Photography

Modern couples who have modern weddings want modern wedding photography to capture their day. It really is as simple as that. Informal pictures of the entire day including the bride getting ready, guests arriving and even the groom greeting guests all go to create an album that captures the essence of the entire day.

So what exactly does the term modern wedding photography mean? In a world dominated by social media, smartphones with cameras and selfies, people look at photographs in a completely different way now. So wedding photographers have to change, my background as a fashion photographer and editorial celebrity photographer has always taught me to change, and always do something new at least once on the wedding day. Yes, of course, there are formal shots with mums and dads also the classics etc, but apart from that anything goes really, within reason of course. Couple control their own weddings today and it’s only right that they also control their photographic memories.   SEE MORE wedding photos

Cool Los Angeles

When wedding guests say they’re going to LA for a wedding, they’re going to both a city and Southern California. LA has such iconic places as Beverly Hills,  Malibu, Santa Monica West Hollywood and Venice Beach. But no matter what La La Land is all about sunshine, cool places, and tell them lots of traffic. 

So with all these cool things here, can you help your wedding guests, Los Angeles is the home of movie stars and so a bus tour for them it’s fun to do a bit of Hollywood star gazing.  The another kind of stargazing is at the Griffith Observatory. I must confess after many years in LA I finally did drive to Griffith Observatory only last month for the first time. I now have been back twice.
