You may remember Donna + Josh from their freaking rad engagement session that included floaties, a surf board, confetti, and crazy light swirls.  Their wedding also did not disappoint. It was filled with sooo much love, respect, adorable kiddos, and dancing that you just had to bask in the awesomeness that is them.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Here’s a funny coincidence: we had planned on blogging Nikki + Juan’s engagement session (in which they wore traditional Mexican attire for a small portion) long before we realized that today is Cinco de Mayo! It is strange how things just line themselves up sometimes. Isn’t it?

Anywho, we hope you will enjoy checking out these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them! We shot two weddings over the weekend, so we are off to enjoy a much needed siesta. :)

All we have to say is that we really miss Duke, the most dapper dachshund we have ever met. Other than that, we will just have to let the photos do the talking about Christine + Taylor’s absolutely beautiful Maravilla Gardens wedding. :)

When you have a groom whose last name is Fox, you lean into it (see photos halfway down).

When you have a bride with a pink Oscar de la Renta dress, it only makes sense to shoot in a bank parking lot with confetti.

When a groom proposes outside an apartment building next to a lamppost, you go back and shoot there.

We can only imagine all of the cheeky and fun shenanigans that will be going on at at Sasha + Jason’s wedding at the Fig House later this year and we are definitely looking forward it!
