The second we received an email from Anjoli, we knew. We always like to chat with our clients to really get a feel for the day, for who they are as a couple…in this case, Anjoli had us at “hello”.
These two and their families are every bit the sweetness that you see in their photos. We literally felt as if we had known them forever…which was extra important considering it was such an intimate event.
It is tough to say what the best part of the day was, as the list is incredibly long. It may have been the obvious love that they share, their beautiful and personal vows, the absolutely amazing details that were created by so many of their wonderful friends and family, the stunning location, the perfect ‘al fresco’ meal…we could go on. Truly, it was a day of perfection. A day that felt to be exactly who they are and a day that we will not soon forget. Every single part of this day came together because of the hard work and talent of their closest friends and family…. yes, even the sweet little dress and shoes that their daughter wore. EVERYTHING!
Days like this one remind us why we love this job so much. Not only photographing a wedding, but for a moment…sharing in the most incredible and personal parts of a clients life. We truly cannot think of anything better.

The bride was sweet enough to put together some added bits from her day. It truly was a collaboration of so many people, and loads of love. Here are some snippits of what she had to say…
What was the most memorable part of your day?
The whole thing went by so fast! It was fantastically chill. Everyone was in a good mood, relaxed and happy. I loved how much everyone was genuinely enjoying themselves. To be perfectly honest, the dinner was probably the biggest highlight! We are all a bunch of foodies, and I loved how interactive it was. Dining alfresco, the family style sharing, and the big long table. The perfect natural light as the sun slowly set behind us, it was paradise. It really was a big happy family gathering. There were so many amazing little details that I owe full credit to my talented friends and family for. There was great time and care put into the details, and I think it really showed. Everybody put something of themselves into this wedding, which made it very special for us.
Any advice for those getting married in the future?
Just relax and let it be. Don’t try to control everything, and let people help you. Trust your people will do the right thing, and everything will come together beautifully. It is your spirit and your energy that makes a beautiful bride, and happy guests, and that alone is enough. Be willing to make compromises, and be understanding, don’t ask to much of people. Just be happy.
If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?

A little photo love…
Where do I even start?? Brooke and Michele were such a great team. They were so sweet and understanding. They made us all feel comfortable and beautiful. Michele actually helped me finish my hair 10 mins before the ceremony! They were both super supportive. They both had big genuine smiles on their faces the whole time! They really got into it, and they showed true genuine interest in what they were doing. They are absolute professionals, with a fun, friendly, girly twist. AND OH MY GOD THE PICTURES. I actually cried when I saw them. These girls are the real thing. I couldn’t say enough. Thank you Brooke and Michele for helping to make my day flawless every single step of the way. You guys should be world famous. xo Anj
