One of the things I love about military life is that I have made so many life-long friendships. Believe it or not, the Marine Corps is a very "small world". Chelsea and Matt were our neighbors when we were stationed in South Carolina, and now we are all stationed in San Diego!
Chelsea is a fellow photographer, and she took some absolutely amazing photos of my husband and I for our anniversary. When she asked me to take photos of her and Matthew, I couldn't have been happier!! I am honored that she trusted me with these special memories, and I had such a great time with them commemorating their love and marriage!
We started the session at Marion Bear Park, which was just perfect for their formal attire. Chelsea looked stunning in her beautiful white gown, and who doesn't love some Marine Corps Alphas?? The florals were designed by Levant Lane and were the perfect beautiful, slightly whimsical addition to these photos! The way the sun was peeking through the trees added a little something special to the magical tone of the session as well!
The photo in the middle below is one my favorites from this session! I adore the way interacted with each other the whole time. They were so natural and their love and admiration was so evident. They're an inspiration of what marriage is meant to be!
After we grabbed our shots at Marion Bear, we headed to Windansea Beach in La Jolla to end the session! Chelsea and Matt were such great sports and changed in the truck into their casual attire, which was seriously a DREAM! Chelsea did an amazing job putting together their look for this beach session.
The sun was setting quickly, but everything came together for some absolutely stunning shots of these two lovebirds! It was as if there was no one else on the beach!
One of my must haves in beach photos is a beautiful sky, and this night did not disappoint!
Chelsea and Matthew,
Thank you so much for choosing me to help you commemorate your love for one another with these photos. I hope they are everything you dreamed they would be. I am honored to have been a part of your anniversary celebration, and even more honored to have met you both many years ago! Chelsea, I am so thankful for your amazing friendship and your support during my photography journey as well. I'm so glad the Marine Corps brought us all together! I can't wait to see what the future brings for you both. You're an inspiration in your faith, marriage, and family!
