Shooting the ever-so-awesome Abigail + Steve at their Malibu Hills and Beach engagement session brought us full circle to almost the very beginning of Marianne Wilson Photography! “How is that?” you ask. Great question you awesome and intelligent reader! :)
Come with us on a journey back in time.
Once upon a time in a shopping center about three miles from here, long before we were blessed to be full time wedding photographers and long before we were married, Marianne had to support the fledgling Marianne Wilson Photography business by working as a Peets Coffee & Tea Barista. Arduously working alongside Marianne at 4:00 a.m. opening shifts and an epic sister in the constant fight against the plague of a cluttered product area was the super sweet and sassy Abigail. From that time, long lost in history, to this very day Abigail and her family have been our greatest supporters. They check out every blog post. They comment all the time. They tell us that our photos make them cry tears of joy, which makes us blush, which is pretty awesome all around.
So, when we got an email from Abigail saying that she was engaged to Steve and wanted to talk about having us shoot her wedding… well… we are not ashamed to say that we did a happy dance.
