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!

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!
