A beautifully crafted celebration of love is what I captured this day. Everything from the carefully chosen lavender and blooms, to the hand painted signs, to the love that was surrounding the lovely bride and groom. This was truly a labor of love not just for the bride and groom, but for all of their family, friends, and loved ones who have been witnesses to watching their love story evolve.
Being a San Francisco Bay Area as well as a San Diego Based Fine Art Portrait & Wedding Photographer allows me to capture some amazingly beautiful stories in some incredibly amazing places. And this day was no different, documenting heart soul and love, and watching stories unfold…
This story was extra special to me as it was a decision to either photograph my best friend’s wedding and be the one to help tell their love story, or be in the wedding. I will not deny, there were times before the wedding when I wished I would be standing up there with her, but being able to capture and tell their incredible love story for them and to be able to gift her with saving such precious moments for a lifetime, well that was just an honor and I was most definitely in my happy place..
Every story I capture is unique and a beautiful experience. I am always truly honored and feel lucky to be a part of helping tell someone’s story and preserve their legacy. On this day I was honored to capture the beauty and perseverance of this beautiful bride and groom’s story… the story of my best friends.
