Guys, take notes. We seriously need to hire Paul as a stylist for our male sessions. He came with multiple outfits AND accessories. Yea, that’s right, he was THAT awesome! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this session was. You would never know by his GQ persona, that in between shots he cracking jokes and being over theatrical, making us laugh so hard we could hardly see straight. Here are a few of our fav’s!

Carmel California Beach Wedding

Rachel and I always pick out our wedding day outfits the night before, because if we don’t, we have a tendency to match. Not a good match, like matchy-matchy, or even twins at times! It’s horrible and funny all at the same time. The night before Meghan and Anthony’s wedding, Rachel came up with a brilliant idea to dress with the wedding theme. Nautical. What could be better!?!? We love everything nautical! The moment we walked into the room the next morning where the bride was getting ready, she looked at us with big eyes and a huge smile and said, “You guys match my wedding!” It was fantastic.

Anthony and Meghan are the type of couple the more you’re around them, the more you love them. This was such a laid back, relaxing, stress free wedding. A huge thanks to Coastside Couture for making our job so much easier that day! Anthony and Meghan were married at Middle Beach in Carmel, and it was GORGEOUS! We also had quite the adventure climbing over waterfront rocks, running from the incoming tide, and hiking up to Wedding Rock. Not to mention the flight of 100+ stairs we had to climb! Man, I’m out of shape.

Enjoy this amazing wedding of two fantastic people. Anthony and Meghan, Rachel and I are so blessed to have you as part of our lives.

There is a certain excitement Jordyn radiates like know no one else. You can’t help but smile when she walks in a room. As one of our senior models, we had been anticipating her session for months. Seriously, we were giddy! To continue our goal of not shooting the same location twice, we scouted for the perfect spot. Oh my, when we walked down the riverbed, turned a corner we had never been before, it opened to this jaw dropping gorgeous setting. The light, fallen trees, running river… GAH!

Jordyn is a senior at Trinity Christian High School with our daunter Rachel. I’m used to seeing them together on the softball field, so when Jordyn arrived in her gorgeous ivory dress, with her hair and makeup done, it nearly knocked me over. These girls are grown up. In just a few short months, they will be adults heading off to college. How did this happen so fast!?!?! Jordyn was such a natural in front of the lens. Look at her…GORGEOUS! Congratulations Jordyn, we so proud of the beautiful young woman you’ve become.
