{ 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 :)

I’m totally smitten by Rosie & Daniel’s story: they met years ago when she first came to him for a tattoo, and he’s been the tattoo artist for every tattoo she’s gotten since :) I never tire of photographing sweet simple ceremonies at the Beverly Hills Courthouse – this one included their closest family members, who surprised them with a confetti shower upon their exit (never get tired of these either!) Crossing my fingers that 2014 bring more fun courthouse weddings my way!

I spent the first weekend of the year shooting my first wedding to the year, and it was a beauty. Susan and I knew of each other both growing up in Torrance (seriously one degree of separation in that city you guys, the Torrance connection is no joke!) and she was also a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed a few years ago. It was such an honor when she came to me asking me to be the photographer for her own special day :) They were married at the Jones Victorian Estate – a sweet venue tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Orange. The wedding was the perfect blend of casual elegance… Susan has killer style to boot, and put together whimsical details that tied so well into the venue and reflected their wintertime wedding – painted window panes, glittery table numbers, and baby’s breath galore!

It was the perfect way to kick off 2014 and I’m so excited for many more beautiful weddings in the coming months! Speaking of which, I’m looking to book just a handful more dates for this year, so if you’re considering contacting me for your wedding, I’d love love to chat with you soon! :)
