I really do feel so honored and privileged when a family returns to shoot with me again. This family is so fabulous- so fun, so real, so comfortable and up for anything (hello, standing in the waves!). Their children remind me of the dynamic with my own three kids. What a delight to see these three kids squeeze each other, laugh and play together, and tell me how much they love each other. Mom and Dad, you are definitely doing something right.
Enjoy these treasures from our day at the beach- I dare you not to smile.
I love California. Almost as much as I love this family.
We spent some time at the Bolsa Chica wetlands, then we hopped across the street to Sunset beach to watch the sun go down.
It was a beautiful day.
So, are you booking your ticket to Cancun yet? No? Well here, let me help you with that.
Dana and Anthony did all of the planning from here in California, entrusting the details to the planners at the resort. They couldn't have been in better hands. Every detail, every small piece of the day was spectacular. Not only was every part of this reception wonderful, love-filled, and heartfelt (right down to the flowergirl falling asleep in Grandpa's arms), but these guys can party. No, really. You know that party in high school you wish you were cool enough to get invited to? That was this party. There was actually another (perfectly nice, albeit quiet) wedding happening at the same time further down the beach... and I'm pretty sure a few of those guests snuck over just to move it on our dance floor. It was that fun. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE was up and dancing. Every age, every background, no excuses.
Get up and CELEBRATE. Words to live by, no?
I can't even thank you enough, Dana and Anthony, for taking me on this amazing journey with you. I wish you a marriage as loving and joyful as the time you spent together on this beach.
