Todd Johnson | Wedding Photography in Los Angeles
“Your wedding is going to be filled with moments that reveal your love, emotion, commitment, traditions, as well as all of the unexpected nuances that make your day uniquely yours.
I use an unobtrusive journalistic approach in creating a photographic story that narrates your wedding day.
I really try and get to know you during the planning of the wedding, so that on your wedding day I can be sensitive to what is important to you as well as be in the right place at the right time without intruding.
I normally spend the entire wedding day with you, from before the beginning until the very end. Wedding Photography in Los Angeles
I find this helps everyone become more comfortable being around the camera and me, which results in more natural and genuine images. In recent years, as photojournalism at weddings has become popular, couples have considered skipping the formal portraits.
Having been married for over 20 years and having watched my son grow, I have developed an appreciation for the long-term value of these images, and encourage couples to take a little time for portraits that will become keepsakes.
Since I work closely with you during the planning stages of the wedding, I can help you decide what is best for you.
Choosing a photographer is a big decision, and I am happy to talk with you about any questions you may have.
Please feel free to call me and discuss your wedding at any time. I would be honoured to be part of your magical day!”

My goal as an artist is to collaborate with you to create story-telling images around what is unique about you, and your wedding, that you will share for generations.
Family portraits Attractive, spontaneous portraits of the people making up your day will be an important part of the story, but most important is getting to know you well enough to tell your story.
I can think of no better way to get to know you than to photograph your engagement portrait, which is why I generally include this with the wedding. It is an excellent opportunity to create something that truly represents the real you in a setting or location that is meaningful to you.
Then, on your wedding day, we’ve already become comfortable with each other and will understand how we will want to tell your story. If you have ever said, “It’s just a wedding, we don’t want to make a big deal of it,” I am probably not the right photographer for you :
Many weddings are done by a formula that does not reflect the true individuality of the couple, but that is not my style.
I see my wedding photography as more of a personal project than a job, and I take on only a limited number of weddings per year to ensure that each one is truly special for all of us.
