There is something genuine and beautiful about people when they are in love. I love the anticipation and excitement for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, and it is my privilege to be in the special position as a wedding photographer to tell the story in beautiful images. Love also extends to friends and family on the wedding day, and it's amazing to be able to capture their pride and happiness through photographs.

My approach for weddings is to tell the story of the wedding day like a fly on the wall. I tend to let the events unfold naturally as I capture the real reactions through the day, while ensuring that I capture all the intricate details, happiness and fun. When the timing is right, I also mix in a bit of traditional approach to direct my brides and grooms under the best light and angles for beautiful yet natural portraits. I think it is important to be able to be flexible and balance the right amount of photojournalism, spontaneity, and traditional wedding photography for different brides and grooms with unique personalities. The day passes by so fast, and in the years after the wedding, I want my brides and grooms to be able to reflect back on the day and remember all the little details through my photos.

It would be my honor to tell your story.  Call or email today and let’s talk about your wedding.

Here are some samples of real weddings that I have shot in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Malibu, Paso Robles and June Lake near Mammoth Mountains.  Feel free to contact me if you would like to see more.

Long Beach Wedding Photography

Amanda and Leland's wedding at the Maya Hotel in Long Beach, was a wedding photographers delight.  A wonderful couple with warm and welcoming guests.  The wedding venue was right on the water and the reflections of light in the water made for amazing wedding photos.

Malibu Beach Wedding Photography

Marie-Louise and Robert's wedding at Cypres Sea Cove in Malibu was an almost flawless wedding.  Perfect weather combined with a touching wedding ceremony along with breathtaking views on a private beach made for a wedding photographers dream come true.

Mammoth Lakes Wedding Photography

June Lake

Thea and Matt's wedding at June Lake, just down the street from Mammoth Lakes was breathtaking.  The views at Double Eagle Lodge were stunning and made for some great opportunities as a wedding photographer.  Nature even stopped by to say "Hi!" when their ceremony was interrupted by a mother duck and her ducklings.

Vineyard Wedding Photography

Paso Robles

Christine and Carl's wedding at the Robert Hall Winery in Paso Robles was a stunning event. An unexpected rain storm pushed the wedding ceremony indoors, but after the rain had cleared, it left behind an amazing sky.  Wedding photography gold.

Los Angeles Wedding Photography LGBT

Sean and Mark's wedding at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles was sleek and modern, just like the couple.  The couple's love of fashion really showed in the wardrobe of the wedding party and made for some good wedding detail photography.

Los Angeles Wedding Photography Huron SubStation

Nicole and Luke's wedding at Huron SubStations in Los Angeles was a carefree celebration of love.  The location offered some really unique photo opportunities because it used to be an old train station.  Wedding photographers like myself just lap up these opportunities.

Los Angeles Wedding Photography
Smog Shoppe Wedding
Los Angeles

Britney and Dane's wedding at the Smog Shoppe was an intimate function.  This young couple were fun to photograph.  And the rustic decorations at this popular wedding venue made for some great wedding photos.  And a succulent gardent that is second to none.

Los Angeles Wedding Photography Palos Verdes

Courtney and Gabriel's wedding at Los Verdes Golf Club was an emotional union.  Their families played a big role in making this wedding unique, because they fiiled the whole day with love and care.  As long as I have been a wedding photographer, I have never been so moved by a speech as was given by Gabriels father.

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Calmigos Ranch

Brenda and Mike's wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu was whimsical.  The venue boasts some really cool vintage carnival rides over a well manicured lot with amazing backdrops.  This lovely couple were married under a hundred year old oak tree with cascading lights.  This was a wonderful wedding for a wedding photographer.

 

Joanne Leung Photography is more than just wedding photography

Photography Services

 I have been fortunate enough to have been able to photograph a few more chapters in peoples lives beyond their wedding day, and it is a spectacular feeling to watch their families grow.  Others I have met a little later along in their stories together.  I feel honored that they chose me to photograph their families.

Pregnancy photography

Maternity is a special time.  The scientist in me gets excited because it reminds me of my intriguing Embryology class. Pregnancy photography is important to me because I truly believe that this is a special point in time that needs to be remembered and celebrated.

newborn photography

I love taking photos of babies and children.  They grow up so fast and it is important to preserve this time of their lives.  When my newphew was born, I was so far away that the only way I could watch him grow was by photos. Thats why I do newborn and baby photography.

Family photography

Family photography is near and dear to my heart.  Family is important, and there is no beter way to preserve the memory of happy times with family than with a family photography session. I had my family photos stolen, and I always wished I had more.

Glamour Photography and Portraits

I believe that everyone should look their best.  From glamour photos to headshots, you will love how you look.

As a wedding photographer, the abundance of amazing backdrops does not escape me. I feel truly lucky to have this all in my back yard.

Moments of true love. This is why I love wedding photography, and love being a wedding photographer"
