A Barnyard Wedding – Katie and Steven

they met in college and for both katie and steven’s parents, it was literally an answer to prayer.

at the reception, katie’s mom thanked steven’s parents [rightfully] for raising such an incredible young man, and then shared how she had been praying for years, for the man that would one day marry her little girl. on that day, yes, katie and steven made their vows to one another and began their life as husband and wife. but on that day, God’s faithfulness is what shone thru more than anything else.

it feels like it has been a long time coming, and after their engagement shoot last year, i only got more excited for the bog day, having seen just a glimpse into their story. and now, i couldn’t be happier to share the start of something incredible; katie and steven’s life together.

here’s to a long and full life for two people that deserve it whole-heatedly!

Maravilla Gardens Wedding Photography – Lauren and Andrew

before they decided to make their life together, lauren and andrew were leading their lives with intention, knowing that their other half was out there somewhere. and before they were to begin their new life together in their familie’s quaint little farm house, they had a trek planned to central america. and before they made their way down towards the equator, for a month-long [much deserved] sabbatical in costa rica, there was one thing left to take care of…

…get married.

with all of the details in order, from the socks to the mustache-accented flasks, the culmination of all that planning and preparation came to a point for lauren and andrew, and it did so at maravilla gardens. their family and friends travelled from all over, and made their way to southern california to witness a single moment; that moment when lauren’s father turned the corner of the aisle, with his daughter in hand, and handed her off to one mr. andrew frey.

we’ve enjoyed getting to know lauren and andrew over the last year, over coffee at starbucks, during their ah-mazing engagement shoot in san juan capistrano, and leading up to the final days before their wedding. and we couldn’t be happier to share just a bit of their story here on our blog.

three cheers for lauren and andrew! pura vida!!

Orange County Engagement Photography – Danita and Andrew

earlier this year, carlie & i kicked off the 2012 wedding season with a fabulous wedding 34-stories above the los angeles skyline. and it was at stephanie and rusty’s wedding that our path crossed with danita and andrew for the first time. the following week, danita reached out to let us know that she was planning on tying the knot later in the year and after meeting up for coffee with her and andrew, we were given the honor and invitation to photograph their wedding, too.

fast forward a few more weeks, we set up the engagement shoot. andrew had mentioned that he owns a bike shop that customizes and modifies scooters, so when it came time to bring out some of their story in their engagement photos, of course he had to bring a couple of bikes along. and when andrew and danita pulled up with two scooters in the back of andrew’s truck, the cool-factor set in.

they’re custom. they’re cool. and they’re built for speed.

we spent the afternoon cruising one of my favorite local wilderness parks, and we had to grab a couple of road-shots with danita and andrew and their toys.

i can’t wait for their wedding later this year. for now, meet danita and andrew!
