Callaway Gable Wedding Photography » Destination Wedding Photography Blog - International Wedding Photographer - Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

One of the things we love most about what we do is that we often become friends with our clients. From the moment we spoke on the phone with Hana and Raz, we knew that they were one of these couples. From collaborating with them on their stylized art-inspired engagement to celebrating with them at their NYC Metropolitan Club wedding, we never felt like we were in a client relationship. This is what we strive for with every client, and with Hana and Raz it was easy. Thank you Hana and Raz – we love you and miss you!!

Their NYC Metropolitan Club wedding was planned by our new friend Christine Wheat from Christine Wheat Special Events. Check out Christine’s blog post – it is a really neat look at the behind the scenes operations. Also, if you are in New York or happen to be visiting, make sure you stop at Hana’s dance company 360 Degrees Dance Company. She is a ballerina and an amazing dancer! Enjoy the photos!

Allison Callaway is a Top Ten Fearless Photographer of 2013. Congratulations!

All year long she has been killing it with her creativity, passion and drive to push herself. She continually inspires our whole team. We are all so proud of her accomplishment, which is really amazing. Why? The Fearless Photographer Contests truly celebrate gorgeous and inventive wedding photography. The competition is fierce. The contests are held every two months in which over 10,000 photos are submitted from all over the world, and only 250-300 are deemed worthy for an award. This means she has had images chosen from every round, sometimes several images. Most people are happy just to get one. Allison won 15 in 2013! This ties her for 4th place  overall with Erin Chrisman and Victor Lax! I came in right behind here, 4 off her count, with an Honorable Mention, tied for 9th place overall.

We are so happy to share the Rose McGowan wedding today! Rose’s wedding to Davey Detail took place at the famous Paramour Mansion, located high in the hills of the Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. Designed by Rose and planned by our good friend Amber Gustafson and Nira deLuna of Amber Events, the wedding was filled with super stylish personal details and references to Davey’s hometown of New Orleans. The Paramour Mansion, a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, was once a nunnery and is now owned by Los Angeles restaurateur and designer Dana Hollister who has filled it with priceless antiques and oddities from her trips around the world. It is rumored to be haunted – a perfect place for the former Charmed actress’ wedding.

Some of our favorite details include the invitations designed by the groom himself, the wrought iron gates with flowers, custom terrariums, vintage tables and custom chairs (which Rose has custom upholstered), Rose’s wedding dresses (Monique Lhuillier – wedding and Grace Loves Lace for the party) , and the very special wedding cake which was a replica of Rose’s mother’s wedding cake. Special thanks to all of the amazing artists who contributed to Rose’s special day: Fantasy Frostings, Copper Willow Invitation Printing & Calligraphy, Holly Flora – florals, Found Rentals for the vintage furniture, Auntie Em’s Kitchen Catering, Town & Country Rentals, Stage Labs Lighting, California Feetwarmers – the New Orleans style jazz band, DJ Madison Stewart, and Amber, Nira, Misha and the entire Amber Events staff.

Finally, a special thank you to Rose and Davey – thanks for bringing us into the fold and including us in your day. You made us dance, you made us laugh and you made us cry! This was a celebration for the ages!
