Brant and Esther are MARRIED!!!

Brant and Esther met online back in 2014 (how cool is this – Esther grew up in the Netherlands!) and after a while of chatting, they became best friends. It wasn’t long before they realized they were perfect for each other and dove into a long distance relationship across the world!

Brant proposed to Esther at the top of the St. Vitus Cathedral while traveling in Prague (how romantic is that?!) and after months of wedding planning and a handful of complications, they decided to say their vows at sunset on the beach in Santa Monica, CA – officiated and surrounded by friends! It was such a beautiful evening and the happiness exuded from the bride and groom! Following the intimate ceremony in the sand, we headed to P.F. Changs and continued celebrating the newlyweds with dinner, drinks and dessert!

Brant and Esther – I am so beyond excited for you guys and cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! I cannot wait to see what comes next for you both in this next chapter of life together!!

Polliwog Park Family Session | Manhattan Beach, CA Photographer | Serena, Bill & Malbec

I had so much fun this morning working with Serena & Bill and their adorable little pup, Malbec on their holiday photos!

We spent the morning wandering around Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach. Malbec loved chasing the geese and ESPECIALLY loved getting a treat after every photo! Enjoy!
