Annenberg Community Beach House Photographer
I am an Annenberg Community Beach House wedding photographer with extensive venue and beach experience.
Located at Santa Monica State Beach, the Annenberg Community Beach House includes two wedding event venues including the Pool House, the Event House, and the historic Marion Davies Guest House. And of course the beach is nearby.
All of these options offer wedding photographers like me a virtual playground for beach photography or beach wedding ceremonies.
The Annenberg Community Beach House was designed to offer both formal and informal event spaces in Santa Monica. The buildings and landscape create a gateway to the beach for couples, the wedding party, and their guests. Examples of beach wedding photography from one of the first weddings ever photographed at this venue are sprinkled throughout this website.
To get to the edge of the ocean, wedding folks can take a short stroll down a boardwalk that provides easy access the deep beach to the and directly to the edge of the water. The end of that boardwalk is a great place to hold a wedding ceremony and makes for an incredibly long wedding processional from the buildings to the edge of the ocean.
For my wedding clients who are environmentally conscious and who are looking for a venue with an important award, you might find it interesting to note that this venue received a LEED Gold Rating from the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
This wedding venue's construction was originally stalled because of City of Santa Monica funding issues, but its ground breaking was eventually made possible by a generous donation from the Annenberg Foundation, a family foundation providing funding and support to nonprofit organizations around the world.
As a wedding photographer who has since photographed weddings at this amazing and beautiful beach venue, I'd like to extend my personal thanks to Wallis Annenberg for his recommendation.
