Grace_Brian_Wedding_3877

This wedding will always be a day I hold close to my heart. As I explained in their engagement post, we had a very special connection with Grace and Brian from the beginning, and to be there to witness and document them during this incredible time in their lives was nothing short of amazing… These two are lovely in every way! They exude warmth and they surround themselves with people who are full of laughter and kindness!! Grace and Brian’s wedding was one of those days where we just couldn’t stop smiling. From an amazing couple and wedding party, to incredibly talented vendors- we left feeling all warm and fuzzy and are so excited to share these photos:)

Grace and Brian- You two and your love and friendship are the reason we do what we do. To say it was an honor would be a total understatement. We wish you guys all the happiness and joy and adventure and love in the world and cannot wait to see where this beautiful marriage of yours takes you!!

Brooklyn Engagement

This session is so special to us for a couple reasons… We’ve known Sarah for years as she designed our wedding bands. (Side note- you guys. She is so crazy talented and you must take a look at her work here.) I remember walking into her studio for the first time with Tim and instantly feeling a connection with her. We’ve been lucky enough to keep in touch over the years and so you can imagine our excitement when she emailed to let us know she was engaged!! Unfortunately, we were already booked the date of her wedding, so we decided an engagement session was the next best thing!!  :)  This was our first time meeting Gabriel, and I have to say- being around these two just makes me smile… They have a connection that is palpable… It’s hard to describe, but you get the sense that they are family- even though they technically aren’t officially married yet… they’re family. They love each other with their whole souls and are the best of friends and to have the opportunity to capture them at this time in their lives was so dang special…

Sarah and Gabriel- we aren’t quite sure how to adequately thank you for such an incredible afternoon! You guys are so inspiring and we look forward to seeing where this beautiful life of yours takes you…. (California, maybe??! Just sayin’:))

All of this beautiful and delicate jewelry Sarah is wearing are her designs! I kind of want to give her all of my savings and have 3 of everything.

1027_Amanda_Bryan_Wedding_4864

I can’t say enough good things about Amanda, Bryan, or this day! This was definitely a beautiful wedding- the setting was insane (Highland Springs Resort is a photographers candyland with olive groves and lavender fields for days!!!) topped off with gorgeous florals by the very talented team at Poppy and Plum. It’s easy to look at this wedding and see that it was beautiful. But this was one of those weddings you needed to be at to really FEEL how beautiful it was. Amanda and Bryan have this love that radiates around them. It’s sincere and warm and such an amazing thing to witness and so incredibly fun to document! They were so EXCITED to be married  :)  From an emotional and joyful ceremony, to hula hooping in their wedding attire- a killer sunset to hours of laughter and dancing- this wedding will always hold a special place in our hearts and we can’t thank Amanda and Bryan enough for having us along to document it all… Now on to all of the photos :)

Welp. I have a new very favorite place to shoot. Can everyone please opt to do their engagement session in the desert??!

We had the best time exploring Joshua Tree with Emily and Drew! These two beautiful people are sweet as can be and so easygoing… They have this really beautiful love that is just so much fun to watch! You can tell they are best buddies right off the bat, and the way they look at each other?? It’s pretty darn magical  :)  We feel so incredibly lucky to be working with two such wonderful people and can. not. wait. to document their wedding this fall!
