A wedding on a calm Thursday during the week. With 15 of the bride and groom’s closest family and friends, along with their two beautiful children. A small quiet garden tucked in the corner of LA’s prettiest nature. Colorful arrangements of blooms DIY-ed by the bride. A ceremony officiated by a friend. Refreshments of lemonade, champagne, and delicious little sandwiches.

I so so loved photographing this wedding. Because it is not about the fanciness and frills – because all kinds of weddings are beautiful, when it is about the love :)

You don’t need a lot of fanciness and frills for a pretty engagement session – perhaps just an open beach, a little (or a lot!) of wind, a pop of color in a skirt and a bouquet of bright blooms… and of course a couple who can let loose and just enjoy their love for each other :) I’m loving the outfits they chose and Diana’s gorgeous flowy beachy hair in all these photos! It was crazy windy that day but her hair seemed to fly in all the right directions every time (can’t say the same for this photographer!)

I seriously had so much fun with them both and also found inspiration in their love – Diana and Marvin have a very distinct sweetness to their interaction. Even just in the two hours we spent together, I could see how they were always considerate of how the other was doing or feeling, that they were so patient, loving, and kind toward each other in every moment. They have huge hearts and it makes me overjoyed that they’ve found one another :) So excited for their big day this fall…
