Gabby and Andrew met me at a Starbucks on a sunny, late summers afternoon. I arrived a bit early and bought my latte. It’s typical for inquiring brides and grooms to arrive a bit late… but these two walked in 10 minutes early. Just as I sat down, Gabby’s beautiful smile and warm eyes immediately grabbed my attention. I knew it was them without having ever met them or even seeing a picture. They are both are kind, inviting and down to earth people.
Over coffee, we talked about their January 2017 wedding. Gabby had visions of purple and incorporating old with new. Classic.
They would get married in the church Gabby grew up in.
Surrounded by their favorite people, Gabby and Andrew’s vision all came to life on a beautiful day in January.
That old with the new look, yeah… it was exactly how she described, actually it was better! Purple, burgundy, with blush pinks and pretty greens. They danced and laughed and I was so happy to have captured it.
And Gabby… gahhhhhh was she stunning!
This family holds such a special place in my heart.
They are not only friends, returning clients, and wonderful people… but they are stunning and photograph beautifully.
A storm was rolling into the southbay. We were nervous we would be rained out but … the weather was in our favor
and the sunset was our faithful friend.
This family, ah! What can I say about these beautiful people…
I have now documented these stunning people for their maternity session and their newborn session.
You can see their Orange County Baby Bump session here!
These two are the real deal. Funny, loving, down to earth and just good hearted people.
I am so thankful for the good ones I meet… and these guys are some of the few.
Baby Owen … you are lucky to have some pretty wonderful people as parents.
This little guy was amazing for his newborn session when he was only a few days old and again at his
6 week mark when we documented this new family of three.
I’ve included a few from his newborn session too, but you can see his full blog post here!
Karina, Mike and Baby Owen…
Thank You for choosing me to document is amazing time in your lives.
I hope these images always bring you happiness! xoxoxo
Gosh, this family!!!
Returning clients are one of the greatest compliments you can give a photographer.
This family has been in front of my camera since their oldest ( yes, that stunning red head ) was a tiny baby!
I love watching my SWP families grow, evolve and documenting them is such a gift.
My love for you guys, ahhh! And your babies… that Emily has a special place is my heart!
May God Bless you always!
I have mentioned in the past that whenever friends and family
ask to get in front of my camera, my nerves are higher than usual.
I’m settled and comfortable with my craft, confident even…
But having the people I love and care about asking me to document their most precious moments in their lives …
It’s always an honor.
Lisa and Matt are getting married in April of 2017.
They wanted their engagement session to be easy,
reflecting their personalities and their love.
I suggested staying local since their wedding festivities will be here in the SouthBay.
Torrance Beach and Madrona Marsh were our picks… and I think, they were the perfect backdrops for this spring couple!
