One of the deepest honors of photographing a wedding is bearing witness to such a wide range of human emotion.  What a privilege it was to document the seed that will lead to that big day for June and Jeff!  Jeff had a vision.  On the premise that they were going to a work event at the Annenberg Beach House (he even faked the related email and ensured that June, by chance, saw it!), Jeff suggested they take a walk to “their bench” before heading to the party.  Unbeknownst to June, Jeff had gone all out in having their bench decorated and personalized for the big moment.  Beside the cozy pillows and blanket, there was a table set up with a photo of June on that very bench!  Jeff clearly has a flair for romance, and I was “oohing” and “awwwing” for the two lovebirds in between clicks of my shutter.

I’ll let the photos do the talking from here on!
