Sophia is the little sister of one of my good high school friends. He was the prankster in our circle and I remember many weekends spent hiding video game controllers from him and my brother so that they couldn’t hog our tv for hours on end. I was really excited when she contacted me about her NorCal wedding since it’d been years since I’d last seen her. We met up over the holidays last year when I was in the Bay Area and it was so great catching up and also meeting her husband to be, Aaron. The two of them are so sweet and I love how easily they smile when together.
Sophia and Aaron made the trip down to Orange County with their equally sweet bulldog, Gigi, and we spent a fabulous afternoon shooting in some grassy fields. I had Jeff and Ellie come along because it usually helps to have an extra person at the shoot to watch the dog when she is not being used for the shoot, but honestly, Gigi is the most laid back dog ever and was great off leash the entire session. She meandered about, but never ventured too far off. Well, except that one time when the rabbits were too irresistible and trotted off in pursuit, but who can blame the girl?
I can’t believe Gigi looked up at Sophia and Aaron right as they kissed. It’s like she KNEW it’d make for an awesome image.
The many faces of Gigi. She was so fun to shoot!
Apparently, this is Gigi’s “mean face” but those big brown eyes scream puppy love to me. She is just so darn cute, I love her.
Sophia and Aaron sent me the sweetest message after seeing their engagement collection. It really made my night and I feel so lucky to have such sweet couples to shoot!
Sarah, We love the photos!!! I'm sure every single one of your clients tells you this, but.. You are so talented and we are so thankful that you are our photographer !!! Sophia & Aaron
