Liz & Steve

Can I just start this post by telling you how much I love Liz? She is a joy to be around and more than I could ever ask in a client and a bride. The day of her wedding it was cold… really, really cold. Red, runny nose cold… You wouldn’t know that by looking at the pictures. And that’s because Liz knew that these pictures were forever and of all the things she was feeling that day, the cold was the last thing on her mind. Joy and love is what you see. Sunshine and a million amazing pictures! Thank you, Liz for trusting me 110% and just having fun in front of the camera!

You will wonder why I am not mentioning Steve. It’s because he was wearing a suit. Kidding. I love them both. We were all a team and it truly shows.

I LOVE this picture and showed it to Liz immediately after I took it! It’s all Enrique’s merit. Enrique Enriquez is my favorite hair stylist/makeup artist of all time! His work is exquisite, flawless. Pure perfection. And truly inspiring. Liz is gorgeous to begin with, but Enrique transformed her into a movie star!
