My favorite part of being a photographer is capturing emotion. Real emotion. You can tell when a photo is forced but when you are able to get genuine joy and love and happiness captured in a photograph you get to keep that moment forever. Sometimes capturing it is easier than others. Families like Tracy, Alex and Lauren make my job easier and are what I love most about this “job.” You can tell they are so happy and ready to start the next chapter of their family’s life together.
We started the evening in Laguna Beach for photos of just the three of them. Almost four-year-old Lauren was so fun – best friends with Laura within 5 minutes. She was so excited that it was finally “wedding day” as if she had been waiting her whole life for the day to come! We then went to Newport Beach’s Chart House for dinner with their closest friends and family. The dinner was lovely and Tracy thought of every detail. The cake and cupcakes were so perfect as were the hand painted wine glasses and surfboards with everyone’s name on them. The evening was almost as beautiful as your family and we had a great time getting to know you. Thank you for letting us share in your special day!
