Alex & Mila Thackara - 4.7.18
I had been lucky enough to grow up with Alex since he and I were both in elementary school, and to gain him as a non-biological brother. When he introduced me to Mila a few years ago, I could tell that she was someone special, and that this new relationship was something I should pay attention to for the future. I had no idea how right I was, because not only was Alex madly in love with Mila, but with her daughter Sasha too. A little while down the road, I got a frantic call from my mother to check Facebook for "the giant shiny thing," and I was ecstatic to find out that Alex had proposed to Mila and that I would be gaining a sister as well.
In the beginning of April I traveled back to my hometown of Vacaville, California, for what was sure to be an absolutely breathtaking wedding. I was blessed to be a part of many of Alex and Mila's more intimate moments as a couple, including their First Look, watching Sasha be embraced by her new father, and listening to vows that epitomized everything I adore about this incredible couple.
annual birthday west coast event - 8.25.18
Every year Rich rents out an entire hall in gorgeous downtown Pismo Beach, CA and throws a birthday event for all of his West Coast Swing friends. I was fortunate enough this year to be his photographer for this phenomenal event, and I don’t think I have ever had more fun at a photoshoot. There was so much energy, so many laughs and smiles, and just an overwhelming amount of friendship and camaraderie among everyone in that room. Friends of his flew in from all over the country just to celebrate this special man’s birthday, and I so look forward to being a part of it again next year!
