As written by LA Photographer Rob Greer and posted on his blog -

Barbie and Ken recently selected me as their Los Angeles wedding photographer so I was thrilled to get the chance to photograph them this weekend. Although I’m usually really great at working with my wedding clients, I did have quite a bit of trouble getting different expressions out of them–they always had a plastic look on their faces. And don’t even get me started about how stiff they were (and impossible to pose). But I did my best and I think they’ll be really happy with these wedding photographs. I know that some of them will make my wedding photographer portfolio!

Barbie’s dress, shoes, makeup, hair, and jewelry are by the fabulous designer Mattel. And did you check out her pink diamond ring; you’d never even know it was a fake! As a tip for future brides, they saved a ton of money on the reception because they didn’t serve food; Barbie and Ken’s friends don’t eat! The highlight of the day was when Ken delighted Barbie with a surprise wedding gift–a brand new car! And although Barbie was a little disappointed that the doors didn’t open, she always kept a smile painted on her face to spare Ken’s feelings. As their wedding photographer, they were truly a pleasure to photograph. Here are a few of my favorites.

    I wonder how much he charges for travel to Ottawa ;)

  6. Fun! Love the pics on his blog too. Great photography!

  7. Thanks for the comments everyone! And although I'm now a Los Angeles photographer, I'm originally from Ottawa.

    @CindiMartin - a flight from LA to Ottawa is $550. Hotel is $200 per night. And food is $50 per day. Add a $500 travel fee to that picture and you can have me at your wedding. ;)

  8. Too cool that you're originally from Ottawa! I have a friend getting married in LA in 2011. I'll tell her to check you out!
