I really don’t know how to preface this. I’ve had this post saved for a few days and every time I open it up and start writing I realize how inarticulate (is that a word?) I am.  Imagine riding an eagle into a sunset and calling it “good”. That’s what this feels like.

I first got wind that a new ACE HOTEL was coming to LA earlier this year while at their Palm Springs location for a wedding. It’s one of my favorite places to shoot and I always end up finding a reason to turn weddings there into 2 or 3 day staycations. I knew the LA property was going to be really special and I about did a cartwheel when I read that they’re also renovating the old United Artists Theater that it’s connected to. I reached out to Jason (the hotel’s GM) and after chatting back and forth for a bit  – he and his fiancé asked if I’d come out and photograph their wedding in the Theater a few months before it was to be opened to the public. I was absolutely flattered. Jason and India are incredibly genuine and lovely humans and I’m lucky to know them.
I absolutely could not have captured this day as thoroughly without the help of Caleb John Hill. Some of the photos below are his and I owe him a hug or 8.

    Nick, I hope I told you before how stunned we were at these photos. Absolutely gorgeous. You captured not only the beauty of the architecture, but also the love between these two!
