STEPHANIE.AND.MIKE.::.THE.INTRODUCTION.

a few months ago, when we first met, it seemed to just click. from there it was just a matter of getting to know each other. i rambled on about my love for story, even shared a bit about carlie & me as i sipped my chai. stephanie smiled as she spoke about mike and how they were now planning their wedding. she said how important a photographer was to her. and i felt blessed at the invitation.

then last week, we all met, stephanie & mike, carlie & i, at salt creek beach in dana point. we could tell the excitement hadn't faded... in fact i think it has grown. with every step, every click of my shutter, every moment of interaction, stephanie beamed with joy. and mike responded to his bride to be with an underlying and steady tone of loyalty. mike loves stephanie. and stephanie loves mike.

we can't wait for their wedding later this year. until then, check out their awesomeness here...

i knew what i was looking for. but i didn't know the words.  i think i spouted out something like 'give me super-sassy-sexy-rocker-face'...  despite my lack of clarity in communication, stephanie knew just what i was looking for.



i love how salt creek is set up.  a huge lawn to soak in the awesomeness of the last hour of light for the day.






just another day at the park.



yes.


for sure, you need to check back later for the slide show...
