Smog Shoppe Wedding Photography – Los Angeles | Megan + Dom

The Smog Shoppe in West Los Angeles is an old converted …. smog shop that is now a garden walled event space run by Marvimon. It is a vintage space that is run in a modern way (green, that is), located right near Culver City and it’s art district. But read on for our day of Smog Shoppe wedding photography!

Megan and Dom are my kind of couple. He’s an engineer and she’s a baker. They are relatively a quiet but sweet couple, preferring to have a low-key and intimate wedding. We drove out to Joshua Tree for their engagement photos and got some amazing astrophotography photos in the process (I did a little timelapse video of that portion of the shoot). So it was our pleasure to capture their beautiful wedding day. Here is our story of Smog Shoppe (SmogShoppe) wedding photography and how we captured it.

First Look at the SmogShoppe

They chose to do a first look, which saves time later between the ceremony and reception. These pictures show how cute they are together in a genuine and sincere moment.

During the reception, we pulled them out of the party for 10 minutes to do some quick low-light night wedding photos.

Instead of a candle ceremony, they did a planting ceremony! The plant is a metaphor for their marriage and relationship. How cool is that?
