Personal, Weddings

AH- what can I say about Danielle & Nick??

Danielle and I were introduced when she was looking for a wedding photographer in 2012- she asked her friend Chrissy about her wedding photographer, who Danielle then contacted.  He was already booked and since I’d shot Chrissy’s wedding with him, he then referred Danielle to me. From our first conversation on the phone, I knew I liked her! I got to meet Danielle & Nick in person for the first time in February 2013 when I was in Laguna Beach to do their engagement session- we had such a good time together and got some gorgeous photos! I knew we were getting along well but when they invited me out for pizza and beer with them and their friends Kristina & Dan after our session, I knew they were amazing!

Danielle & Nick got married in Western MA almost a year ago (it’ll be a year on Sunday the 25th!!!) and although their wedding was absolutely incredible, the weather wasn’t quite on our side. Due to some heavy rains we weren’t able to get the beautiful outdoor photos that Danielle was hoping for. I stayed with Danielle again in October 2013 while Nick was deployed and we chatted about doing a session when he got back… and then we talked about it more and Danielle decided to have her dress brought out to San Diego so we could do those outdoor photos she’d wanted on their wedding day!

Ok… so now we’re at February 2014 and I was back in San Diego staying with the two of them and their cutest puppy ever Chara. We had a great time catching up, watching their wedding video (shout out to LMV Productions for doing an incredible job!!), eating Acai Bowls and going wine tasting. Due to a couple of things that came up (one of them involving me and a CA state police officer… don’t worry I didn’t do anything wrong!) this shoot almost didn’t happen!! I was leaving Saturday and had an engagement shoot that morning in San Diego and one at 3:00 in Laguna Beach. As a last-hope we-really-want-to-do-this-shoot idea, I suggested we try to shoot in the middle of the day before I left. AND I’M SO GLAD WE DID!!! We had a great time and this is one of my favorite shoots I’ve EVER done… it was, dare I say, perfect. 😉

Danielle & Nick- I can’t thank you both enough for everything you’ve done for me. I count myself lucky to have you as friends and I can’t wait to see you next week and to celebrate Brianna & Keith together!!! Much love!


The CLAW- making a comeback 😉




LOVE this one!
