Dan and Priscilla’s Wedding

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Los Angeles. While there, I worked with Stephen Tobolowsky to put the finishing touches on our upcoming live show. I also had the opportunity to photograph Dan Trachtenberg’s wedding.

Dan and I have been friends for a couple years now (he’s guested on the /Filmcast a few times, always to great effect). It was an honor to capture images from his big day with his bride Priscilla, who looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress. The wedding took place at Marvimon in Los Angeles. Beautiful location, great food, amazing people. I could not have asked for a better wedding to shoot!

Here is a video I put together of the festivities. It is my first attempt at assembling a video slideshow out of my photos. Hope y’all enjoy it:

  • Dave-

    As someone who has both studied photography (and done nothing with it) and is the son of a professional wedding photographer, let me just say these are fantastic. A lot of photographers either mechanically capture all of the right beats without personality or are fantastic photographers technically who miss the key moments. You capture the emotion and beauty of the day and the bride and groom's unique personality with a lot of technical skill. Awesome job!

  • Thanks for the kind words, 100 Years!

  • OK … Michael Bay needs a photographer for a celebration … he asks you … what do you do?

  • i recently saw a montage on a british tv series using this same Adele song, but the camera work was nowhere near as beautiful as this.

  • Dave, this looks and sounds great (even if Beatles covers generally grind my gears). I look forward to a bunch of videos now that you've got your Vimeo page.

    Stubble on the wedding day seems like an interesting choice on Dan's part, but it looks like everyone had a fun time. I particularly like the shot in the street, with the sunset and the green light.

    Just a minor note: you used the Tobolowsky Files Live URL twice, though I imagine you intended Trachtenberg's name to link to something about him.

    Thanks for the tip! Fixed 🙂

  • Really beautiful pictures. I clicked the link just out of curiosity, and found myself mesmerized. Such moving & intimate portraits. Very awesome.

  • The pictures are awesome Dave, kudos sir!

  • great job dave. loved the off camera flash shots with the sunset.

  • Beautiful images- Thanks for posting! I did one of these for my sister-in-law's wedding with Van Morrison's "I'll Be Your Lover, Too". Great song for a romantic photo montage.

  • Good stuff, David.

  • Amazing! Wonderful pictures.

  • Great photos

    Cool to see Dan's wedding too
