We love the ease of a Sunday morning, don’t you? Especially when there are easy brunches with friends, lounging and reading the paper or watching a game - ahhhh. A good Sunday morning resets your soul and prepares you for the crazy that your Monday through Friday can bring.
Our featured couple, Angela and Gordon, have a love that can totally be described as Sunday morning ease. They met in college at UCLA, go Bruins! They became friends grabbing food together in the dining hall; if they had to pick a first date it would be those meals. Their Sunday mornings are filled with leisure trips to a local Farmers Markets and lounging!
Their engagement session was in San Francisco, one of our favorite places to shoot. They picked “The City” because they both have strong connections to it, as Gordon grew up there and Angela works there. Also, San Francisco is where Gordon set up their surprise engagement. Gordon took Angela to the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. He took pictures with his phone while they toured the gardens. Once they arrived at the perfect spot he asked Angela to stand there while he set up the camera to take their picture together – but he turned on the video and recorded his proposal.
It’s wedding season here in the studio, and we wish you love and the ease of a Sunday morning. We asked Gordon what his favorite thing about Angela is he said, “When she laughs, especially if I'm the one that makes her laugh. Seeing her happy makes me happy. After being together for so many years, she understands me better than anyone else does. I can be myself around her, no matter how flawed or how embarrassing.” We can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Nestldown it surely will be a Summer of Love.
