Culver Hotel Wedding Photos | Culver City, CA | Yuka & Dai

Howdy!

Today, we get to revisit a beautiful wedding we photographed at the historic Culver Hotel in Culver City, CA. All of the weddings we shoot have something awesome about them, like a surprise dance or performance, wedding detail that we’ve never seen before, and this wedding was no different. On this special day, our groom was professional race car driver Dai Yoshihara, and that was super cool. Shooting weddings is our full-time gig, but we also shoot other projects and free lance for a few magazines whenever our friends in the print industry need some help with photos, and automotive photography is something we dabble in, so photographing the wedding of a professional driver was something pretty awesome.

The Culver Hotel is an awesome historic venue in the heart of Downtown Culver City where “classic meets contemporary and history meets modern luxury.” There is so much character in this venue and it provided a lot to work with for us.

For this wedding, Joseph, an associate photographer of ours, was manning the second camera while I was the primary photographer for the wedding.

Meet Yuka & Dai. We got there a little before the ceremony started so we were able to snap some portraits of them before their guests arrived.

After our short portrait session was over, it was time for the wedding ceremony inside the Culver Hotel. Guests had made their way in and were seated, ready to witness the union between the bride and groom.

Right after the ceremony, we invited all the wedding guests to the front of the Culver Hotel to take a quick group photo. We used a wide-angled fish eye lens to achieve this shot that the bride and groom loved.

It was a very intimate wedding at the luxurious Culver Hotel in Culver City, a special day shared by those who were near and dear to the newlyweds. This wedding was a lot of fun for me and Joseph to be a part of and we easily fell in love with the venue. We only wish we had a little more time to take more wedding portraits, but we managed what we could and are happy with the shots we pulled off in the amount of time we had available.

Big congratulations to Yuka and Dai and thank you again for having us be a part of your big day in Culver City!
