I couldn't help but feel a little emotional when I was editing these photos. This handsome young man is my good friend's son who just celebrated his graduation a few days ago. It was a drive through ceremony but special nevertheless. As a mama to a teenage boy who is about to enter his senior year of high school, I can only imagine what was going through her mind as she went through these photos. Probably thoughts of how her son is not a little boy anymore and memories of dropping him off for his first day of kindergarten. It is an honor to be able to capture these moments for my clients and friends. One I don't take lightly. Congratulations class of 2020!
This sweet couple almost didn't get to have their wedding thanks to the Coronavirus. However, they decided not to let it ruin their day. They really wanted to get married on their original date because it was meaningful to them. It was when the groom first told the bride that he loves her. So they got married anyway with an intimate ceremony. I couldn't be happier for them! Best part is we get to do it again in August when they have their big wedding with family and friends.
Things are looking up for San Diego! Hoping that weddings will soon be on the horizon. I've missed my job so much and I'm ready to get back in the saddle again. 2021 brides, if you've been sitting on the fence, unsure about booking, I wouldn't wait too long. Dates are filling up with 2020 brides who've had to reschedule their wedding. I'll be lowering retainers for the time being to make things easier for you. Contact me for details!
Happy Mother's Day from my family to yours! Families I have not forgotten about you. While I love taking pictures of couples in love, I love taking photos of happy families too. In fact, that's how I got my start and it will always be my passion, just as much as weddings. I can't wait until I can make beautiful pictures like this again for you too. Hoping that it happens very soon!
Some wedding ring bling for your Wednesday! Or wait...is it Thursday? 😂 Can't wait until I can get back to creating ring shots like this for my couples.
I did this engagement session right before the quarantine. Everything was perfect! The light, the weather, the scenery and the couple. They were so sweet and adorable! They plan to have a wedding later this year in Italy. But as you can imagine, COVID-19 put a damper on their wedding plans. I'm glad they at least got to have their engagement session. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed really hard for them that this craziness ends soon so they can have their big beautiful wedding surrounded by all their loved ones. The same goes for all my other couples too. I'm sending out positive vibes to the universe for you all. 💗 (To see more images from this session, link in profile)
I just realized that I haven't shared nearly enough images from this beautiful wedding, like this one of this stunning bride.
Hello! Linda here. Social media slacker. I've been taking advantage of some downtime before wedding season starts up again to make my client experience even better for my couples. I've been working hard behind the scenes redesigning my engagement session guide and I'm putting on the finishing touches. I'm so excited to give it to my couples! It's a 26 page comprehensive guide full of styling and other tips. No fluff here! I give you all the deets. Who knew there could be so much to say about engagement sessions?😂 This is an example of the support you get when you book a wedding with me. I don't just take your money and say see you on the big day. I'm here to give you helpful advice and answer all your questions throughout the process. So you'll go into your wedding day knowing I've got your back!
Sometimes little ones have plans of their own when it comes to family photos. I let moms know that it's totally okay and to be expected. Quite often at this age, photos are done on their terms. In that case we play, take breaks if needed, use it as an opportunity to get some photos of mom and dad, and just go with the flow. Still, families sometimes go home feeling like their session was complete chaos. But when they receive their gallery (dad's especially) they are pleasantly surprised to see that there's beauty in the chaos. I love being able to show them that. Hair and Make-up: @veromua19
