I really like the "Luciana Flower Comb" and "Augustina Flower Vine" photos on this site. They're a bit "Laura Nyro in New York in the late sixties." The lighting contrast and the dark background and the small hit of color from the lipstick are very appealing to me. I'm getting married and would like to hire a photographer who can produce shots like this in his/her sleep, but I don't know what to search for -- what terminology, etc. "Goth" is not what I want, and "vintage" is too broad. Would "chiaroscuro" get me anywhere? [more inside]

Los Angeles Filter: I am a geeky/artsy gal who is currently based in NYC, who for various inextricable reasons is slated to get married in Los Angeles this summer. I am completely overwhelmed by LA and how little I know about it, but I am trying to make the most of the situation. I have a few questions which you LA-folk might be kind enough to help me with. I'm not the wedding-planning type at all, and so far my only main goal is that the wedding happen in an interesting place, which is somewhat compatible with my traditional extended family from their somewhat ostentatious culture. Big, giant sigh. [more inside]
