You really can’t go wrong with all of these picture perfect pieces – the serene background of the Venice canals, the nearby beach, a lovely flower crown, and a couple as adorable as Tiffany and Joe. They have such a sweet effortlessness to their interactions and photographing them was so much fun! Tiffany fashioned her flower crown the night before (in preparation for the flower crown she plans to make for her wedding) and it was such a pretty addition to the photos.

This session was the perfect balance of playfulness and romance and I’m so excited to share it with you :)

We didn’t plan for the fog.

We figured out sunset times and when to meet for the optimal golden light, and when I woke up that morning the sun was streaming in my window. It was cheerfully sunny on my drive over as I passed through 4 different cities, and literally just as I pulled up to the block before the beach, the sun hid away and we found the entire shoreline was blanketed in a cloudy mist. And now when I see these photos, I couldn’t imagine it any other way. The fog was perfect. Ala {my dear friend and fellow photographer} and her hubby Steve were perfect. The quiet, calm and empty beach was perfect. Her dress? That flower crown? The simplicity of just this one location, of following a couple and documenting their love? All perfect.

At the end of the session, I told them I could photograph this session all day every day, and I meant it.
