ANNIE & MICHAEL | ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Meet adorable Annie & Michael!  They reside in Marina del Rey, California and are planning their wedding from a distance, so I hadn’t met them in person prior to our engagement session.  We had chatted on the phone and via email and I knew they were a fun, vivacious couple, but when I met them in person, I really fell for this duo!  Prior to the session, when we were discussing styling, Annie emailed me a picture of her dress, and I knew instantly she had great taste! ;) This couple is as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside and I can’t wait for their wedding next August at one of my favorite venues, The Semple Mansion, with Lasting Impressions Weddings.  Thanks to the lovely ladies at Emily J for Annie’s hair and makeup for this session.

From the second Madeline walked in the door of my studio, I have been counting down the days to her & Brian’s wedding!  I’ve gotten to know this couple over the past year and learned their story, and although their wedding was seriously overflowing with gorgeous details, this was even more so about the commitment they are making to each other, which has been a decade in the making.  M&B have been through so much together, have stood by each other’s sides, and have so much more yet to come.

Madeline herself is in the bridal industry, so only the best of the best vendors would do for their big day! Laura Mullen Event Design did an amazing job from start to finish and ensured this wedding went off without a hitch! Of course, I also have to mention Madeline’s gown. Her custom Oscar de la Renta gown was literally, the perfect choice, and her entire look was styled to perfection thanks to the amazing ladies (her coworkers!) at l’atelier couture. There are too many fantastic vendors thank them all, but seriously… all top notch! I am so lucky to work with such fabulous couples and vendors who are passionate about what they do!! I also wanted to recognize Madeline’s mother for all she did! From what I hear, she had a big hand in the gorgeousness that is this wedding, and also took on many projects, like sewing the runners for all the tables, and the pillows that were used for decor. All these details, and the incorporation of Brian’s love for fishing (the custom made bow ties, and the fishing lures on the butler passed hors d’oeuvres) made this event so personal. I literally could’ve posted hundreds more images!! Thanks to everyone involved, especially this beautiful couple! I am beyond honored to have been a part of your day.
