You may remember Mara and John from their stylish Palm Springs engagement party. I was so overjoyed when they asked me to photograph their wedding as well! They were married at the Beverly Hills Courthouse {always love shooting there!}, in an intimate ceremony shared just amongst their family and closest friends. After some portraits, the celebration continued at Caufield’s with mingling amongst cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Their wedding was the perfect example of a day that is low-key and relaxed, while still being beautifully elegant and classy.

To top it all off, their special day was announced in the New York Times! You can read their sweet story (and see a little photo feature! :) in the article here!

Another lovely wedding at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. I feel so fortunate to have been able to photograph so many beautiful ceremonies here in the last year – it started with Crystal & Marc’s last spring and they have just kept coming in! :)

Liane and Stephen made sure to allow lots of time for portraits afterwards and I love the soft and romantic shots we were able to get in the gardens just across the way from the courthouse. To top it all off, they held an intimate reception afterwards at Bouchon… I may or may not have made a stop at the bakery on the way out to load up on pastries for my drive home :)

In my last post, I mentioned how I felt so lucky to photograph two super sweet and intimate courthouse weddings in the same day! Kaitlin and John were the second couple I met up with that afternoon – from the moment I saw them I could tell how giddy and excited they were to tie the knot. We chatted a bit in the courthouse hallways, they had their ceremony with just the two of them (and I got to serve as the witness!), then we strolled around outside for portraits, where they discreetly opened up a celebratory bottle of champagne for a couple shots! :)

On my way up to the courthouse, I had spotted a cool open lot + alley area just steps away that had beautiful light and pretty pastel colors – I mentally crossed my fingers that Kaitlin & John would be up for shooting there, and was so excited when they happily went along with the idea. I so love when clients trust my vision for shots, even with locations that on first glance seem not so picturesque. Had so much fun with them both!
