Samantha + Max ~ Lawry’s
This wedding was the earliest wedding I have shot to date. I began my day at 6 am with a Starbucks in one hand and my Nikon in the other. I always enjoy shooting in new places, so I was pleasantly pleased with Will Rogers Memorial Park and the gorgeous backdrop it provided for Sam and Max’s first look.
Their ceremony and reception were held at the famous Lawry’s (/laʊriːz/) The Prime Rib restaurant in Beverly Hills. This historic restaurant is like stepping back in time to the era of “old” Hollywood with the matronly-dressed servers and pristine décor. I was impressed with how Sam and Max went to each table during their reception to speak to each guest and thank them for coming to their wedding.
