This modern elopement at the Beverly Hills Courthouse was the perfect Southern California casual yet modern vibe. I absolutely love capturing these small and intimate celebrations. The Beverly Hills Courthouse is truly a gem and one of my favorite places to capture couples in the Los Angeles area. The bride wore a super unique dress that fit her to a tee and gave off the most modern/vogue(esque) look. The groom wore a classic black tux and velvet loafers which were the perfect touch to complete their entire look.
The bride and groom included the Father of the Bride and Mother of the Groom to help celebrate this sweet ceremony. It was the perfect size for the exchange of their vows to each other.
The Beverly Hills Courthouse has some of the most gorgeous grounds in Southern CA and there are a ton of spots that make for beautiful ceremony locations. For this special day we decided to utilize the palm tree filled courtyard, it had the perfect lighting and was the most amazing backdrop for their modern look.
These moments are what I live for on wedding days, those smiles, tears and exchange of rings/I do’s. Look how precious they are!
That moment right after the first kiss is one I always capture, it is the most exciting part of the day for the bride and groom and it always makes for the most authentic smiles. They were so excited and I was so excited for them, I absolutely love being a part of these special days for people-it truly is an honor.
After the ceremony, I always dedicate our time for the bride and groom photos. At the Beverly Hills Courthouse there are so many jaw dropping spots-the amazing architecture, the Southern California palm trees and all the amazing fountains and tile work.
The sun was shining through at the most perfect time throughout our session so I had to snag one of the light shining right in between the trees as they strut across the courtyard-they honestly looked like models on a runway, am I right?
The front of the courthouse is one of the most gorgeous shots to get while you are at the courthouse-such an iconic image. The sun can sometimes be a little challenging at certain times of the day, but we lucked out this day and the clouds covered the bright sun just for enough time while we captured the tall gorgeous building.
Solo shots of the bride and groom are everything! This is one of the most important days of your life and you’re probably looking your very best so how can we not say yes to some stunning self portraits? Also, doesn’t she just look perfect!
We ended with more bride and groom shots to complete our session together. I had so much fun posing these two but to be honest they were total naturals in front of the camera. If you are nervous before a session or are hesitant on booking professional photos, take a big deep breath in and don’t worry! I have so many clients who do not feel natural in front of the camera and trust me, if you hire a good photographer that will not matter! I make sure that everything looks natural, not too posed and feels comfortable and fun. I promise your session or wedding will be so amazing and you will have gorgeous photos no matter what.
If you are looking to do an intimate day with your loved one and want to make the most of your session, the Beverly Hills Courthouse is seriously such an amazing spot. I hope this modern elopement at the Beverly Hills Courthouse gives you tons of inspiration for your intimate wedding. From the ease of parking, no crowds, to the gorgeous grounds you are sure to have the most stunning photos to cherish for a very long time.
