I have always love the ocean and found the underwater world to be fascinating!! When Jessica and Evan contacted us to do wedding photography at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, I was beyond excited!! We’ve seen plenty of beautiful backdrops for weddings whether it be a romantic setting sun, the rolling hills of a vineyard, a gracious cathedral or a gorgeous view of the city skyline. Not often do the guests get displaced in an underwater fantasy (as seen at The Aquarium of the Pacific). There was an amazing moment during the ceremony when a wall of shimmer bubbles started and cascaded up the two story aquarium. Just simply GORGEOUS!! So read on for our day of Aquarium of the Pacific wedding photography!
Wedding Preparation at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach
The day with Jessica and her girls getting ready at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach.
Isn’t it cool how her train can be detached from the wedding dress?
I always love the looks on the bridesmaids faces when they see the bride in the wedding dress!!
And… the check list before heading out to see her groom.
I didn’t know champagne can come in a form of a can. =)
Groomsmen Photos at Shoreline Village
While I was getting pictures of our lovely bride and the girls, Gavin was with the boys doing photos at Shoreline Village.

Aquarium of the Pacific Wedding Ceremony
I just love how colorful underwater world…
Their Jewish ceremony was right in front of this huge two story fish tank!! What an amazing treat for all the guests. And unique to see a chuppah (huppah) in front of such an amazing backdrop!
The Wedding Reception
This wedding is a great example of how we do Aquarium of the Pacific wedding photography in Long Beach, including wedding photos at Shoreline Village and more. The Aquarium of the Pacific is one of the more iconic locations of Long Beach (visited by both tourists and locals alike) and is a truly unique backdrop for a Jewish wedding. How often do you see a first dance under a life-size whale replica?
