Anja and Alain came all the way from Germany to renew their vows for their 10 year anniversary! They had already had the big beautiful wedding, so this time they wanted an intimate ceremony on the beach with only their daughters to witness.
When I arrived to the Waterfront Resort, in Huntington Beach, the skies were dark and red from the active fires all over Southern California. But this wasn't going to put a damper on their parade. We started with a fun first look in front of the resort and then walked down to the beach to exchange their vows. The whole ceremony was spoken in German, even though I couldn't understand a single word, I could totally feel the love that this beautiful family has for each other. After 10 years of marriage, everyone still shed beautiful happy tears -I can only hope that Jack and I have that timeless kind of love!
Congratulations Anja & Alain, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. It was a true honor :) Oh and the boys loved the gummy bears, thank you!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
