You’ll never guess how this Bay Area Wedding session started. As my couple and I drove up to our gorgeous hilltop location, it started to hail! Yes, you read that right- freezing rain just moments before we were about to start snapping photos. Thankfully, luck was on our side, and after waiting out the storm, the sun finally appeared again for a brief moment- but long enough for us to capture some incredible shots of Maggie and Simon.
Like most of us, 2020 has not been the kindest of years for Maggie and Simon. They had big plans of a beautiful wedding day, full of love, laughter, and their best friends and family. After the pandemic struck, their big plans got put on hold.
Even though this year didn’t have a wedding in store of this couple, they still decided to make the most of it and celebrate regardless. They weren’t about to let the pandemic put their life on hold. They became legally married this year and celebrated with an epic Bay Area wedding session just days away from their 9 year anniversary!
Thank you again for trusting me to document not only your engagement session, but now your wedding session as well! I was trying my best not to get too emotional during our time together because it’s been such an honor to watch your relationship grow through the years.
Maggie you looked positively radiant. I seriously couldn’t stop remarking about how incredible that gown looked on you! Thank you for braving the harsh weather to capture these moments. I know it was tough to be standing in the soft earth in heels, let alone be freezing!
Simon, your joyful attitude and love for Maggie made the session even more magical! The way you smiled at her when I was capturing your solo portraits was so heart warming! You two are meant to be, and that is very obvious.
Thank you again Maggie & Simon! I pray the remainder of this year brings you peace, and that 2021 is another amazing chapter in your love story. Congrats!!!
