Stefanie and Gil were in Los Angeles recording this past week and we’ve been trying to get together before they go back to Vienna, Austria. I covered Stefanie and Gil’s weddingMelissa
I’ve never been to a recording studio and I was in heaven with the wall to wall electronics! The mixing board alone was so cool, I was like a kid in a candy store. Anyway, here are a couple pics of Stefanie from my iphone.Los Angeles recording studio Santa Barbara Photographer Santa Barbara Photography Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer 1 Comment »
So here’s some fun photography stuff. I created a mosaic from every image I took at Stephanie and Gil’s Capri Italy wedding and made a mosaic out of it! I thought it was kinda cool! I’d love to see a huge print like this on my wall!

After an incredible week in Capri, Melissa
The first piece of history we came upon was St Peter’s Basilica
Again, as we are walking down the cobblestone streets, we turn the corner and there stands the Colosseum
We walked for miles but it didn’t matter because of where we were. We were starving and since we’ve been eating like kings for the past week during the wedding, we wanted something quick and bad for you so we found a McDonald’s! How wrong was it to be eating at a McDonald’s where the view out of the front door was The Pantheon
After the Pantheon, we found ourselves at the Piazza Navona
The Vatican City
One of the last sites we saw was The Trevi FountainItaly Rome Santa Barbara Destination Wedding Photographer Santa Barbara Event Photography Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer 1 Comment »
Capri is such a beautiful place and so are the people. The weather is perfect, almost as perfect as it is in Santa Barbara! haha. You can walk everywhere you want to go, unless you want to get to the other side of the island and visit Anacapri. I’m sure you could walk, but the thin winding roads and mountainous terrain make it hard so you either take a bus or taxi. We spent alot of time up in Capri Town where most of the restaurants, shops and bars were. it’s pretty surreal to walk through the cobblestone streets with shops that make Rodeo Drive look like a strip mall.
On the last night, we all went to the super fun restaurant, Villa Verde
Stefanie and Gil opened up gifts and of all the wonderful things she received, one very special gift from her sister brought tears to Stefanie’s eyes. It was pretty amazing and a complete honor to be included in this incredible life celebration between Stefanie and Gil for their wedding with their closest family and friends.
3D glasses that showed hearts when you look into the light were handed out right before a congratulations cake was brought out. The cake lit up like the 4th of July and everyone had sparklers… incredible. Thank you Stefanie and Gil for treating me like one of the family. My fondest memories of my first trip to Italy include both of you, your families and friends!
Here are some favorites from that night. The first picture is of Ori Kafre, the owner of the JK CapriJK Capri Santa Barbara Destination Wedding Photographer Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer 1 Comment »
One thing so incredible about this wedding is that it wasn’t just the wedding that everyone came for. This was more like a family reunion that lasted for a week! Every day had activities planned and everyone had so much fun. One activity planned was Casino night. This was a casino night where everyone was dressed to the 9′s in their best tuxes and dresses. The first round was a roulette game that brought out the gambler in everyone. The second round was a poker playoff that turned into serious rivalry with serious “all in” bets being called every other round! Cigars, Prosecco, serious competition and tons of fun!
The winners from each game even had Stefanie and Gil’s wedding 2008 trophies given to them! Everyone looked amazing especially Stefanie in her Roberto Cavalli

After the amazing civil Piazza wedding in Capri Town, everyone filtered their way back to the JK Capri for the Jewish Ceremony. This was a beautiful and touching private ceremony held by the pool.

I’m having an incredible time over here in Capri Italy! We checked into the JK CapriProsseco
Another amazing detail about this wedding is that they secured the whole kitchen staff to cater to the guests. The head chef, Rennato is the most charming little Italian man that never stops running around. He smiles constantly and is always checking on the guests to make sure everything is ok. Needless to say, the food has been amazing.
When we walked in the door, we were greeted… “buona serra, welcome home” and that’s exactly what it feels like to be in this hotel with all the guests. Everyone is amazing and they all, especially Stefanie and Gil have treated Melissa and I like we’re part of the family. One thing pretty amazing about everyone here is that they come from all over the world. There are guests here from the U.S.A, Vienna, Germany, Persia, Russia, Israel, Canada and London! And I’ll say it one more time, they all treat each other like they’re family, so cool! I just wish I knew how to speak Italian, German and Hebrew!
Here are some pictures from Monday.
I also wanted to show everyone the amazing view from my balcony in the next 2 pictures. This is where I’m sitting right now as I post this blog! I could really get used to this! Santa Barbara Destination Wedding Photographer Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer 1 Comment »
