Even though Lindsay and Matthew have plans to elope in the wonderful tropical land of Maui next year, I was so excited to be hired as their events and party photographer to document their engagement party at one of their favorite restaurants, Sfixio in Beverly Hills. It was no surprise when the owners of the restaurant came out and hugged Lindsay and her family – being frequent guests at a restaurant will make you close friends!
I liked that Lindsay and Matthew decided to do something a little different with a big engagement party and an elopement next year. Sometimes you don’t need a grandiose wedding to get married to your best friend. However, it was so fun watching friends and family reunite, proudly coming up to them to say congratulations and adding stories of when the happy couple were children. Observing is definitely one of my favorite parts about being a party and events photographer – you get to witness conversations and moments that perhaps no one else would.
As I looked over at Lindsay and Matthew throughout the night, they were always smiling ear to ear. It was apparent that one thing was obvious – they are so incredibly happy to marry each other. Long ago I picked up a camera and entered the professional photography industry for these exact reasons. These genuine smiles need to be captured and remembered forever – in the good times and the bad.
