Annie & Don got married at a resort on the beach, but didn’t have time to take pictures down on the sand.  Since I wasn’t available for their wedding, this was the perfect opportunity to get some portraits taken together on the beach.  With encore sessions, there are no constraints on time and you don’t have to worry about your guests waiting for you.  I first encountered Annie’s passionate soul when she applied for my Malibu Propel workshop.  From her email alone, I could hear how much love and heart she has to share, and I got to experience just how much as I got to know her through Propel and the time after.  I was really excited to meet the lucky guy who got to marry such an amazing woman, and he was nothing short of amazing himself.  The two together have such great chemistry that makes everyone around them feel so welcomed.

Congrats Annie & Don!  Thank you for letting me share a small part in this milestone!

  1. Aww thank you Caroline! Our wedding was a destination one and we really wanted to focus on our guests that travelled just for us.I find this to be a difficult balance, either your spending time taking photos or time with your guests, so something will get compromised. So this was a great, great way to have that alone time on the sand with my love bc we enjoyed our guests thoroughly! The tide on our day was just not cooperating so you filled a huge huge void for us for photos on the sand… So many friends had shared that they had WISHED they had more time for portraits with their photographer. So after the wedding, I am so glad we did this because it COMPLETELY worth it. It was way more relaxing and easy…I think there ain’t nothing wrong putting on those special clothes again ladies and gents and have pictures you will treasure no matter how long ago your wedding was. I also like how you called it an “encore” session vs a “trash the dress” session. Very well thought out. We couldn’t be happier.
