I met sweet Emily at a women’s retreat back in December. On a chilly Santa Cruz morning while eating french toast, we talked about love + marriage and I got to see how happy her then-boyfriend, Paul, made her.

Flash forward to a month ago – Emily and her FIANCE Paul took me to the spot they tried to have their first date, the spot they actually had their first date, and the coast of the beautiful City they not only live in, but will be married in this fall.

On the day of our shoot, Emily + Paul looked like all the good parts of a Nicholas Sparks movie (for their wedding, I’ll be more prepared with popcorn and kleenex).

I’m totally smitten by their sweetness towards each other and feel so honored I get to be the storyteller of their wedding :)
