Weddings are one of those things that can take a really long time to plan. There are so many little details that go into making the day all come together. So, when I heard that Tricia & Ben had planned their entire wedding in just four months, I was in complete shock. I couldn’t believe that they were able to book their venue, hire all their vendors and iron out all of the details of their day in that short amount of time. But as we hung out for a while shooting their engagement session, I began to realize how it was all possible…they’re the perfect team. It was literally like hanging out with yin & yang. Everything that they did together was like this fluid dance that only they knew the steps to. Their personalities were totally complementary to each other and it was so beautiful to see how they interacted. Ben cherishes Tricia and she’s head over heels crazy about him. They just enjoyed being around each other so much that I got the sense that waiting an entire year or so to start their lives together would have been down right unbearable.
Tricia and Ben wanted to have their engagement session over at the beach. And what is a better beach than the one over by The Montage. I mean seriously, beaches don’t get any nicer than that one. I absolutely love shooting there because there are so many gorgeous spots to take portraits at.
I love it when the tide is low enough that we can venture out onto the jetty. It’s neat to sea all of the different sea life that call it their home.
How cute are these lounge chairs and umbrellas that The Montage provides for their guests??
My favorite part of their session was when we were walking back up to the parking garage. Ben saw some flowers growing on a bush along the pathway and he decided to pick one to put in Tricia’s hair! It was such a sweet gesture that made Tricia feel so incredibly special. I thought that sort of thing only happened in the movies but apparently I’ve got it all wrong.
Tricia & Ben, thank you so much for having me be a part of your special day!! I can’t wait for your wedding and to see what all the future holds for you guys!!
