Wedding Dresses

Okay, I assume by this point you have your wedding rings. If you don't, stop reading this and call me, so I can send you to someone who can save you a ton. I absolutely love my jewelers work in the jewelry district in downtown Los Angeles.

Back to your dress! With my background, over 25 years of retail, I learned very quickly that to be successful you need to surround yourself with talented people. When I starting this business in 2003, I did just that. But not just the photographers, I trust with my clients, but with the other vendors in this industry. Now, I have had a lot of time to find those I trust with my clients. I have worked with these bridal shops for years now and I can't say enough about them.

You may not be close to the shops I list here, but if you can, I suggest you make the effort to get to them and drop my name. You may be surprised.

Bridal and Special Times

961 E. Colorado Blvd.

Pasadena, CA 91106


This shop is owned and run by Lori. Considering this shop is directly below my office you might expect I am playing favorites by listing her first. But I just decided to list the shops by distance from me. Lori sells a great selection of dresses, makes amazing veils, can copy any design you want if you want to make something unique and honestly is just a sweetheart. She has an extensive display of Allure and Pronovias dress lines, as well as Morilee.

This location has one of my wedding albums on display as well as large acrylic prints of our clients.

Connie Tao Designs

23 Mentor Avenue

Pasadena, CA 91106

Connie is one of those people you are thankful for ever having a chance to meet. Extremely talented and well known in the custom dress industry, she is someone you can trust to put you at ease, and make you a personal one of a kind dress that won't break your budget. Imagine owning a dress that you wear on your wedding day that no one has ever seen before. Connie is someone you just have to meet.

La Soie Bridal

650 E. Colorado Blvd

Pasadena, CA 91101


Located in the heart of the Theater District of Pasadena, La Soie is a very small private chain of bridal shops that are also located in Walnut Creek, Sacramento and one day Venice. The owner of this company knows her business and has a team of great sales associates to assist you. Their own brand of dresses are beautiful and they also sell dresses by Bliss by Monique Lhuiller, Blue by Enzoani, Livné White and others ranging from $1600-$7000. Ask for Monserrat.

Chic Bohemian Bride

2247 Honolulu Avenue

Montrose, CA 91020


Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm

Saturday 11am-5pm

Closed Sunday and Monday

Located in the heart of Montrose, that's between Glendale and La Crescenta, this gem of a store and its owners will have you swooning for a whole new vision of your wedding day. Their hand made bridal accessories are so intricate and beyond imagination. Whether you wanted a vintage look or something that made you feel like a forest fairy, I beg you to go take a look. Every detail from your dress to your veil are simply elegant. Ask for Paulette.

Simply Bridal World Trade Center 350 S Figueroa St Ste 168 Los Angeles, CA 90071

Known for their 60-90 day dress delivery timeline, this bridal shop is a force to recon with. I have worked with this bridal company now for over 5 years. They have an enormous amount of wedding gowns and accessories and if you have an opportunity to attend one of their shows at their location or the occasional one at the Thursday Club in La Canada, I can only highly recommend it.

A new partnership is brewing. One I have been working on for years. Check our blog page soon and follow us on social media too!
