MONICA.AND.PETER.::.JUST.BECAUSE.

they flew out from deleware to enjoy a sunny summer weekend in so cal. and with reports of temperatures in the 90's from the weekend before, their hopes were high. but when they stepped off the plane, they were greeted by a crisp 65-degree quasi-spring atmosphere.

oh well... on with their vacation.

monica contacted me recently, excited to surprise peter with a 'just because' photo shoot during their vacation. and when we met down at the cedros design district in solana beach, carlie & i had a blast hanging out with this east coast newlywed couple. we cruised past the scattered art galleries & boutiques, surprisingly vacant for a saturday afternoon, and just had a relaxed good time. monica talked a bit of shop with carlie & i, as a newer photographer herself, sharing photoshop recipes and gear talk.

there is something so refreshing about what carlie & i are blessed to take part in, from an engagement shoot, to a hi-fashion bridal shoot, to shooting, well... just because. we love meeting new people, hearing new stories, and capturing those stories in time. here are some of our favorite moments from our time with monica & peter... rock on.

[by the way... carlie rocked out 100% of the post processing on this shoot]





probably the first time peter had to get on his tippy-toes to kiss his bride.

we almost passed this little gem, when peter mentioned THE 'must-have' shot.


try to find the invisible photographers.

one of carlie's fav's.



these last two are by-far my fav's...

enjoy.the.story.


so, 'later' has officially arrived... here is the slide show

  14. Gabriel and Carlie,
    These first photos are AMAZING! This was such a treat to see today because shortly after we returned home Peter had to leave for a business trip. I was seriously missing him today and when I came to read your blog today here he was! You've captured our personalities perfectly and I can't wait to see more!

    Take care,
    Monica

  22. Hey, I just found you guys through Jasmine's blog... I went back to your first month of posts. Y'all are a great inspiration - you just jumped in and set your sights on what you wanted,! I've been timid to jump in and turn a hobby into a profession, but seeing y'all do just what scares me gives me the motivation I need. Thanks!
