Coronado Beach Elopement

Sorry I have been slacking with the blog posts lately. Something about having a one year old seems to take up all my time! haha. This year has been busy busy with weddings! I love that I get so many people from out of state coming here to have their wedding.

Meet Grace and Demitar. They had originally had a plan to get married in Napa Valley, but the fires made them change their location last minute. I was called about a week and a half before their wedding and luckily I could juggle some things and make it work!

These two decided to elope. There is something about elopements that are just crazy romantic... Maybe is because Anastasia and Demitri eloped at the end of the movie Anastasia... I don't know. But Just two people getting married on a beach.... no set up, no trying to make everything perfect. Just you and your love. Making a commitment to one another. (and me in the background capturing it, of course.)

Let me share their special moment with you.

The World Awaits: Two Italians in California

Around a month ago I went kayaking with some friends in La Jolla, California. (one of the most beautiful places in america) We all started talking about life and such, and I told them about how I was trying to enter in a contest to win a new lens. My problem was that I had a photo envisioned, but I didn't have anyone to pose for me. I had tried several times to get that perfect shot, but no luck. It was then that my friends introduced me to their new friend Virginia. She is from Torino, Italy and just arrived in California a few days before this and she was going kayaking with us. I brought up the contest to Virginia, and she was more than happy to help me out. Now.. fast forward a month and her and I have become really good friends. Virginia's Boyfriend, Andrea, came to visit her and we got some incredible shots his last day in the states. I am so sad that she will have to go back to Italy, but I hope that I will be able to visit her soon! (The jury is still out on the contest... I know I am a finalist, but I'll keep you posted on the results.) Enjoy!
