I photographed Sara and Derek’s engagement photos with their pup Ben more than a year ago, you can see them HERE. Not only have they added little Honey to the mix, but they are expecting their first child. So happy for these two! I spent the morning with them at their beautiful home.
Sarah and Ricardo are very organized people, probably the most organized I’ve ever met. They came up with the theme for their engagement shoot, “date night” and all of the locations, talk about making my job easy! We had a fun time walking around downtown Long Beach, its become such a cool area in the last few years. I’m really excited for their wedding, its one month away!
Doug and John met in 2009 at a birthday party in Ottawa for mutual friends from their grad school at McGill. John finished his masters degree in Political Science in 2007 and moved to Ottawa, Canada for work, and Doug had started his PhD in the same department in 2007, so they had a lot of friends in common! Doug had driven down from Montreal with a couple of people (including Sarah, their Wedding Officiant), and had extra space in his car, so he gave John a ride home when the party ended. They went on their first date a few weeks later, when Doug came back to Ottawa for an afternoon. The rest is history!
They were Married on a beautiful sunny California day at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens in Claremont. Congratulations to Doug and John! And thank you for letting me capture your special day!
