Featured : Destination I Do Magazine : Erma + Max

Photography

I received her email on a sunny afternoon. It was brief, yet detailed, and described her perfect wedding at the Santa Monica Viceroy. Erma told me she was planning her wedding from Canada, followed my blog, and was quite certain I was the photographer for her. Well, then, let’s get this party started! After a flurry of emails, the date, location, and details were locked in and I was excited to meet her in person.

Meeting a bride on her wedding day can be a mix of emotion from a photographer’s standpoint, but the minute I walked into Erma’s suite as she prepared with her sister and best friends, I knew the day was slated for wonderful things. After all, amazing people create amazing days. When JD and I left Erma and Maxim’s wedding, our heart were so full of love and joy for such an perfect couple. I’m constantly blessed by the amazing people I meet and I walk away a better person being able to call them friends.

I’m incredibly honored to see their wedding published in Destination I Do Magazine, on newsstands now…

Happy Thursday!
