Christina & Don in Beverly Hills, CA

Thanks to Terrence Bishop for inviting me along on this wedding this past Sunday!  So many beautiful places we had available to photograph---the lofts at Hollywood and Vine, the Four Seasons Los Angeles, and the ever-quaint Il Cielo in Beverly Hills, it was truly top-drawer!lum-1023-copy

Don, the groom, who himself happens to be a band and musical artist photographer. It was fun to collaborate with him to produce shots like this!
