I’m sure you guys can tell I’m all caught up on editing and have moved onto a blogging spree. Which means I finally get to share a session I’ve held onto for quite awhile! I first “met” the beautiful Ravayna online through Weddingbee where we both blogged. Those of you familiar with the wedding planning site might recognize her as Mrs. Archer. When she and her husband David were looking for a 1st anniversary photographer and I was looking for an excuse to see southern California for the first time, the timing matched up perfectly. So I spent a whirlwind 24 hours in Los Angeles before heading up to Sacramento for a planned visit to see my cousins.
Oh em gee. California light is EVERYTHING. But these two? They’re everything and more. A couple who share a love of parkour, dance, and general silliness? Yes please! And they’re madly in love with each other? AND gorgeous??? Not to mention I’m now 1 degree closer to The Voice’s Olivia Henken and Forest Whitaker and Johnny Depp’s kids (that’s what knowing people who live in Hollywood does for you!).
Ravayna thought through every detail of their 1st anniversary session at Barnsdall Park. From the Kate Spade champagne flutes used at their wedding to the box mix cake she fancied up with the help of an icing tip, this session was pure perfection. I hope I can visit again soon and refuel on the amazingness only California can offer!
