Island Hotel Newport Beach Wedding
Persian Wedding at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach CA
690 Newport Center Dr
Newport Beach, CA 92660
*NOTE* This Island Hotel wedding in Newport Beach is from way back in 2011, and the style and look of Hoffmann Photo has changed DRAMATICALLY since then. I’ve left it up in case its helpful to see the venue and what it offers, but make sure to head to the photos page for an updated portfolio! (Trust me, its COMPLETELY different!)
The Persian wedding at the Island Hotel of Rusteen and Atousa (besides havin a WILD group of bridesmaids/groomsmen) is a really cool point in the timeline of my photography skills and style. It marks the first time where I intentionally brought only film cameras to a wedding! Rolls of Ilford 3200 and Fuji 400H were the canvas, no digital. I did quite a bit of research and personal practice to feel confident enough to bring film to a wedding, and I must admit that the results were really nice. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did when I got them back from Richard Photo Lab. :)
I had to create a layout just for this amazing backless Givenchy dress worn by the Maid of Honor (AND she wears it so well). . .
