Welcome to Maleen photography, wedding photographer Los Angeles



Los Angeles Wedding photographer

Photos which tell real and touching stories are my biggest passion, most of all a wedding is the most beautiful event to create these pictures.
There are so many great opportunities as an Los Angeles wedding photographer to capture your wedding in a vivid and creative way, the beautiful beaches, hills and parks.
I just love the area’s magic atmosphere as an Los Angeles wedding photographer.
Even if you would like to do your wedding shooting in Palm Springs or Joshua Tree National Park, I am more than happy to do it!
As an Los Angeles wedding photographer I am aware of my big responsibility on your special day and I want you to be delighted with your photos for decades.

For me is a photo not just a photo.
A photo represents a special moment, it is a memory keeper.
Every time if you look at your photo, you should remember your special day.
You should notice the sun in your face, hear the wind and just feel the magic.

My Style as a Los Angeles wedding photographer

As a Los Angeles wedding photographer I developed a feeling for the right moment to take pictures.
I am very passionate about what I do and merge into the process. I show empathy and pay attention to all the little details to really make it your day.
Whatever preferences you have in terms of being photographed, of course I will take them into account. I’ll have your back and help you focus on enjoying yourself on your big day. The gorgeous photos will come naturally – and so will the great memories.
Your guests share this special moment with you. It is important for me as wedding photographer in Los Angeles to catch the whole event with you and your guests.
Together the photos should tell a story of your day.

The modern wedding documentary

The modern wedding photography is more than just a photo shooting, it is more like a wedding documentary.
The photos tell the story of your wedding and reproduce your day with all the special moments.
Preferably I accompany you as a Los Angeles wedding photographer throughout the whole day, from the styling and dressing in the morning to the party at night. That way I can document all the precious details of your story.
I love being part of the celebrations to such an extent, love to join the dance and laugh with your loved ones.
It is helpful for me as a wedding photographer in Los Angeles to soak in the atmosphere and transfer it into the pictures.
All emotions are captured from beginning to end.
This whole collection is something couples are usually most proud of afterwards.


Natural wedding photography

I love working with natural light.
Each of the different day times has great potential and its very own atmosphere.
It is the interaction between the right moment the picture is taken in and the post-processing that makes a gorgeous and memorable photo.
Finally each of your photos will be edited professionally by me to really get the best out of them. This is an inherent part for me as a Los Angeles wedding photographer.
In this regard my work comprises, among other things, the processing of color mood, contrasts and image details.
As you can see on the pictures my style can be described as – airy, editorial and romantic.
In addition, I edit the wedding couple minimal, to make them even more beneficial.
My style as a Los Angeles wedding photographer is always: as natural as possible.

Engagement photos in Los Angeles

It is more and more in common, that couple would like to do a professional engagement photo shooting.
The couple can use the photos as inventation card and the photos perfectly fit in a photo collage.
Even for a Valentines present is a couple shooting in Los Angeles perfect.

After wedding shooting

Sometimes couples are not sacrificed with their wedding photos or they have to much to do on their wedding.
As a Los Angeles wedding photographer I am more than happy to offer you a after wedding shooting.
Often these shootings are more relaxed, because there is no hassle.
We could drive to a different locations like Malibu or to the Joshua National Park.

Lets get to know

Beautiful wedding photos can only ensue when the photographer and the bridal couple are on the same wavelength.
Therefore I offer my clients a non-binding first meeting to discuss your ideas and to get to know one another.
Over a cup of tea or coffee we’ll talk about your wedding photography wishes and you can find out if you want me to be the one that tells your wedding story.
It is going to be your very special day so you shall be happy with everything that contributes to its success and beauty.
As your Los Angeles wedding photographer it would be my pleasure to advise you on a fitting one for your occasion and develop a concept with you.
If all that sounds interesting to you, you’re very welcome to get in touch with me to discuss further details.
I am based in Los Angeles, but open to travel wherever your special moment is.

I look forward to getting to know you and your very own love story

Maleen, your wedding photographer in Los Angeles.

Useful information and links

Many couples ask me how long in advance they should book their wedding photographer, therefore I recommend to do the booking so early than possible, because many couples are booking their photographer one year in advance.
My recommendation is to ask the photographer, if he or she has some appointments free even in the peak season.

You will find information about my pricing here.

One of many nice places to have your wedding shooting is the El Matador beach:,-118.8768517,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x80e83d5baea31e81:0x247ad46783ec982b!8m2!3d34.0380426!4d-118.874663
