So I don’t normally share a lot of my family portrait work. Not because I don’t love them but because my Instagram is designed to highlight my wedding & fashion work. However, this specific family is pretty special to me & I was so excited when they reached out for photos! Samantha & Steven’s wedding was my VERY FIRST wedding I shot and I was the 2nd shooter. I always knew I loved weddings but I had never “shot” one before so for all I knew I could’ve absolutely hated it. But I didn’t. I so vividly remembering 2nd shooting this wedding & SO badly wanting to take lead. It made me SO excited to start shooting my own weddings. I still talk about their wedding on a regular basis. How I have never seen two people so in love that when you walk into the same room as them it is overwhelming. In my eyes Sam & Steve’s wedding was the one that made me fall IN love with weddings & after that day I knew that I was meant to be doing this.
It makes me so happy seeing their love & family grow and I could not have been more thrilled to capture these moments for them before I take off to California. P.S apparently being photogenic runs in the family……baby Cal was a showstopper full of smiles!
