Aug 24Tied the knot: Michelle and Erik in Golden Beach
After their ceremony, I pulled Michelle, Erik and their daughter aside for some portraits by the ocean as the sun was setting. The warm light wrapped all around them and although they were pretty quiet as I snapped away, the look in their eyes said it all. There was so much love on that beach. As I looked through all the photos, these made my heart melt. Sure, there were gorgeous, romantic ones of just Michelle and Erik, but these… these are what that beautiful day was all about. Family.
Weddings aren’t always about just two people promising each other eternal love. Weddings are so much more than that and I should know. Although Mike and I are legally married, we’re having our wedding this fall. Oliver, our son, will be our ring bearer. When I walk down that aisle and I take hold of my husband’s hands, it’s not just him that I’m promising forever to. It’s to our family. The two people I love more than anything in this world. They give my life incredible meaning and endless inspiration.

Aug 12Inspiration: The sea at twilight
I really am going to miss the summer. Opportunities to make magic are at every glistening corner. There are times when the less you plan, the more things come together in an organic way that you never see coming. Desi, from Gigi Mamma Cakes, felt incredibly inspired and created this breathtaking cake that you’re about to see. Words truly can’t express its beauty. She contacted me that same day and asked if I would be willing to photograph it. I knew I had to capture it, but I wanted to do more than what seemed so simple. With the day almost coming to a close, I still wanted a challenge. I knew of the perfect spot and now I just needed my muse. I asked Desi if she would allow me to photograph her alongside her creation and she agreed. She came to my home, threw on my wedding dress and we headed out to this gorgeous spot close by. With just minutes before the sun disappeared, I was able to capture a few moments. We barely had any light and I was so pleased with how they turned out. Holding my breath, closing my eyes and praying as I hit the shutter definitely helped. Haha! Ah, how I love living so close to the sea and all its beauty. These are my favorites.
