Elissa & John // Studio City - Los Angeles Backyard Wedding

Y’all, this wedding 😍

This couple is amazing, and so was their wedding day. Elissa & John were married in the backyard of Elissa’s parent’s home on top of Studio City, on a gorgeous day, surrounded by all their favorite people, but most importantly their pup Basil. There were so many thoughtful details and lovely touches, but what stood out most was the overall feeling of how thrilled and supportive everyone was to be there for this celebration.

The ceremony was beautiful and Basil sat perfectly at their feet bearing witness to his humans tying the knot. The speeches had everyone in laughter filled tears, and the dance party was one I’ll never forget. Elissa’s best friend surprised her by having the DJ play “Eye to Eye” from A Goofy Movie and they busted out the entire dance sequence from memory. My 90’s child heart was so full and and bursting with nostalgic joy!

The other folks who made this day great!

Wedding Planner: Falon Ballard

DJ: Will Gilbert of VoxDJs

Blue & Luca // Love Story

These two literally radiate love and joy, and make any space they enter automatically feel like a better place to exist. We got to spend a few days at the beach together on a little queer-cation with a group of friends (much needed before wedding season really kicks into full swing!) and Blue and Luca were kind enough to let me photograph them.

The way Blue and Luca show their love for each other is apparent in how much they snuggle and hang all over each other, but also in the smaller moments of little glances and smiles when no ones looking. I had such a wonderful time working with these two sweethearts, and can’t wait to see this amazing partnership continue to grow.

We still can’t get over how incredible Janine & Jenevieve’s wedding day was. These two have a lovely story, you can read all about it in this perfect Bustle Magazine article.

Shawnee had such a wonderful time getting to know these two sweethearts. Janine & Jenevieve had their celebration at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia and it was such a great setting for their wedding day. They did things exactly as they wanted, and pieced together different traditions, keeping only what was important to them as a couple.

Make your own traditions, and live your life fully 🖤
