I remember leaving this wedding all smiles. It was one of those days where every little piece comes together so well, where there is so much positivity in every moment, where the day flows so effortlessly, that when it was time for me to pack up and go, I almost didn’t want to leave! It was something about the combination of an elegant seaside estate, a heartfelt ceremony, the sweetest collection of family & friends, an array of ombre bridesmaids dresses, a stellar team of vendors (thanks to Perfect Affairs Events, Juicebox Media, Kelly Zhang, and my awesome second shooter Diana!), and of course a fun and warmhearted couple.

I feel so blessed to have been there to document it and hope you enjoy these moments :)

It’s no secret that I love pretty outdoor sun-kissed weddings, but there is definitely a soft spot in my heart for the urban loft wedding! This one at Studio 11 had all the fixings – amazing brick walls, beautiful exposed beams, a stunningly lit reception, and an intimate outdoor space perfect for portraits. Aside from all the whimsy and fun that was packed into this day, it hands down had some of the best food I’ve ever experienced at a wedding! Jen works with Kensington Caterers and seriously everything from the hors d’oeuvres to the dessert station was top notch!

Thank you so much Jen & Jason for allowing me to capture your beautiful day! I can’t imagine a couple better suited for each other & I’m so happy for you both! :)

{ 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 :)
