I met Jialing and Leonard at The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles for their engagement session. I’m a frequent visitor to The Getty but I’m usually there to visit the amazing photography exhibits. And I do like to take a look at a Rembrandt now and again. I will be working as Jialing and Leonard’s wedding photographer in May at Verandas in Manhattan Beach. Check back then for more photos of this cute couple!
After I posted this blog entry I received an e-mail from Julie Jaskol, Assistant Director of Media Relations at The Getty. She stated, “Just a note that commercial photography at the Getty is prohibited without prior written permission. Unfortunately, we are not able to allow wedding or engagement photography at all, due to the sheer demand and the impact it would have on other visitors’ experience.” With this information in hand, unless a client is able to obtain written permission prior to our shoot, I won’t be able to accept The Getty as an option for future engagement sessions.
