I’m so excited about these photos and especially about this couple! Don and Mia are doing the long distance thing — she lives in Europe and they only get to see each other every so often. So wedding planning hasn’t been easy. Don has been so wonderful and involved in the planning process though! He took care of booking all their major vendors — including me as their wedding photographer! It’s refreshing to be in contact with the groom since most brides I know are the key planners and decision makers.
It was so fun hanging out with Don and Mia at the Santa Monica pier for their engagement photos. It was a chilly day in December but they were such troopers and we got some beautiful, epic sunset photos with the ferris wheel in the background. They are both so gorgeous and in love with each other! They took every chance they could to snuggle and kiss for the camera. I think long distance relationships make couples appreciate each other more — because you know the time you have together is limited. Luckily, they will be married in Malibu this August so the long distance thing is coming to an end soon. Hooray! I’m so looking forward to their wedding this summer.
