Cailen + Sean + 1!

Ah yes! A rare Sunday post before taking a break for the first of my favorite holidays!

It is such a joyous serendipity that three years after (ack! Has it been that long?!?!) shooting Cailen and Seans fairy tale wedding in the Loire Valley of France, we all find ourselves here in sunny southern California, where the weather is easy, and the sunshine is nice. I seriously FLIPPED when Cailen sent me an email redently letting me know that she and Sean are expecting in the coming months. Not only can I obviously relate, but another chance to make the journey out to see these two (I always seem to be meeting up with these crazy kids somewhere in paradise) and spend some time catching up. Even Uma came to assist me (obviously), and the Bean family was happy to offer a glimpse of the amazing future that lie ahead of them. And what’s better is when this (fatefully) perfect and gorgeous baby makes it’s arrival, we’ll all get together again and lament about days where we slept through the night, and rejoice in the small price that is to pay to bring a child into the world as your own.

Also, did I mention that Cailen and Sean are pretty much the easiest people to photograph I could ever hope for? Yes. There’s that.

Shannon + Ken

The time I spent with Shannon and Ken was so short compared to what I would have wished, were we not a country apart. We had a brief but memorable meeting and a dimly lit restaurant at their recommendation, where the food was superb (almost ALWAYS a sign that we are made for each other), and the company bright, shining, and happy in love. The both of them are easy to laugh and smile, they make you feel like a part of their club while flitting meaningful, loving, amazed glances at each other so full of the love they’ve discovered in one another. But these two – are filled with love, in fact, they are beacons of shining love so bright you couldn’t miss them with your eyes closed. Man! I was SO excited to be their wedding photographer, to finding my own self shining in that light, blazed between those stolen glances with my trusty camera. And this is what I found.
