I can’t begin to describe the beauty of this couple. We had never met before their wedding day because Kelsey and Chris aren’t local, so everything had been done either via email or phone calls and being that I am a total control freak, things like that scare me because I want to know who I am working with. When I walked into Kelsey’s room I was able to put a face to a familiar voice but It also felt like we knew each other from a long time because I knew from the moment she said: Erika, do your thing! All my stuff is right there… I knew she trusted me. I LOVE it when bride’s trust me and allow me to be creative and free because my aim is to create timeless images that will portray exactly how your day went down. Because they trusted me, they never once asked why we ended up in a conference room for their portraits… all they did was focus on each other and trusted my eye. The day was hot, humid, the beach was packed, the Newport Beachside Hotel was over flowing with guests that my first choice was the empty conference room and man did we create magic together. I am so honored to have been able to share this beautiful day with them and I hope you enjoy some of the pretty we created for them.
