The Blog

Studio 23 is the original Cinematic Los Angeles Wedding Photography studio.  Our goal is to provide our client with unique and thorough wedding day coverage.  Our photography style is based on three core skills.  Cinematic portraiture, which focus on our couple and their environment.  Photojournalistic, which is designed to capture emotion. And traditional, for clean, modern colorful photography that will stand the test of time.  Every couple has a love story, we want to tell yours.
