Romantic Seaside Bridal Portraits

Romantic Seaside Bridal Portraits

I am, without a doubt, through and through, a mountain girl. Give me grass to dig my toes into, a tree stump to sit on, and I'm a happy girl. Give me sand and water and I literally don't know wtf I'm supposed to. (For real, sand is itchy and waves knock me over and I have a whole laundry list of reasons why I don't like to be at the beach. Just saying.)

However, I live near the beach, with the mountains a few hours away, so I feel like it's about time that I start embracing these opportunities. So when Viktoriya from the Hanging Gardens finally had a styled session available on a date that I was available, I decided to jump on it.

Wedding at Hermitage Gardens // Jessica + Quint

One of the most common questions that I get is whether I prefer to do photography or videography. To me, that's like picking your favorite child-- I just love them both so much, there's no way I can decide!

Which is why it brings me extreeeemmmeee pleasure to build up my team and finally offer all inclusive packages to my brides. and legit, I don't think I could have picked a more beautiful bride than Jessica as my first guinea pig! Er, I mean.. moving on...

As with any wedding, you ain't got nothing if you don't have a good team. And this was an amazing team, lead by part-time coordinator Celeste Driskell. Homegirl blew it out of the water!
