Social media works in crazy ways; I met Melanie and Dave a few years ago through a mutual friend, and though I've been friends with Melanie on Facebook ever since, we hadn't seen each other since our initial introduction. So imagine my delight when she sent me a message asking if I could shoot her wedding at the Beverly Hills Courthouse! I'm a huge fan of simple weddings. Remove all of the hullabaloo, and you really get back to the core of what marriage is all about: two people who are in love and want to devote the rest of their lives to one another. I met these two at the courthouse, shot some photos, and after the ceremony we headed to Manhattan Beach for another quick session before the rain started to fall. I had a wonderful time documenting your day, you guys! Here's to many long years of love and laughter to come. Cheers!
