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!!

I LOVED working with this sweet family!!

Baby Colette is SO loved and big sister Camille is such a good helper! I loved being able to witness all those sweet sister snuggles, secrets, kisses and giggles!

In home newborn sessions are definitely a favorite of mine to photograph – capturing those little baby toes and baby hair, seeing siblings in awe of their new best friend and watching new parents pour love over their family is just the sweetest thing!! I’m the luckiest to work with such amazing families who share these precious moments with me ❤
