{ erin + brandon // camarillo ranch house wedding }

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

What makes for a day this perfect? How about a so-in-love couple, who has been together for an amazing 17 years? How about a lovely little ranch house adorned with the sweetest handcrafted vintage details? How about personal touches galore – Erin’s bouquet wrapped in the sleeve from her mother’s wedding dress, guests sipping on beer brewed by the groom and his friends, the ceremony officiated by a reverend who has known the family for 3 generations, a dessert bar made with contributions solely baked by family and friends. This wedding was the perfect picture of relaxed elegance and thoughtful details, but also so much FUN!! I loved how Erin and her dad danced down the aisle, followed by a high five with Brandon as he handed off the beautiful bride. The entire day was filled with feelings of warmth & love, and I can’t express how honored I was to be there to document it!

A special thank you goes out to Jennifer Yamauchi for orchestrating every last piece of it – always love working with her & her tirelessly amazing team!

These portraits were taken at the beautiful Greystone Mansion. I didn’t realize just how close this amazing location is to the bustle of the city, just a few minutes away and seriously the loveliest place for portraits. It’s like someone air-lifted a pretty European chateau and dropped it perfectly in Beverly Hills :) I could shoot here everyday and I’d be happy girl!

Sheri’s ethereal dress fit the gardens perfectly and I loved wandering around with them that afternoon!

{ a courthouse wedding story }

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Valentine’s Day. The Beverly Hills Courthouse. It was quite the busy day for a courthouse wedding, with a long line of excited walk-ins forming down the hall of the 2nd floor. I met Shannon & Reggie there on this sunny morning, accompanied by his mother as well as their 3 beautiful daughters.

I’ve photographed quite a few weddings here, but it was my first time shooting on this holiday. Usually when I arrive we walk right in for the couple’s appointment, but I was happy to find that this waiting time that morning provided an opportunity to tell a little more of the story. Of them shimmying down slowly in line, the two older girls playing hand clapping games, the littlest one passing out, Shannon fixing her daughter’s bow, of the simple loving interaction between a family. By the time we reached the front of the line and walked into the ceremony room, I felt as if I knew this couple and their family so much better than when I had arrived.

This is a truly beautiful family, and it was an honor to help tell the story of this day :)
