Veronica y Bart – love, color, and awesome!

Lisa and I were extremely excited to see these two get married. We connect with all of our clients in different ways — from their love of adventure, to their desire to cook, their passion for movies, a need for peace, quiet, and serenity, or the simple fact that they are crazy love birds following their hearts and getting married. These two we will never forget. Seeing each other as couples both with little boys born three days apart is a rarity to find. I remember chuckling in the car as we drove away from the beach on their engagement session, and it was like we were old friends chatting about the craziness that is our lives with our first children. We all had changed lives from the past 7 months of raising a child, we were tired and joyous within the same moment. It was the most wonderful thing to hug these two goodbye seeing a reflection of everything simple, hard, and wonderful in our lives in these people that we were having the chance to tell their story.

The one thing I seek out with photography is truth. We want to know who you are, and why you were crazy enough to fall in love with another human being. Being able to see daily the way that someone else can make their true love smile, and laugh through simple ways, shows me that when we break everything down from our complicated lives, love and happiness is all we want, and all we need. Once we get a couple to stop their busy lives even if it is just for a couple hours that we all can easily fall in love again. A photograph can be that therapy we need, to look back upon and remember those simple times of smiles and laughter that we have together.

Veronica and Bart, we are so happy for you two being able to celebrate family in ways that many newlyweds do not know yet. You were a family before you were married and you now both have bigger families today. Seeing all of the color and delight at your wedding in the hills of Santa Cruz was amazing. It was the coolest thing that we were able to see Paul and Elise, who’s wedding we photographed in 2010. It was beyond special seeing little Harrison be a part of your wedding. More important though it was seeing the smiles and cries you had for each other. Your whole family worked so hard on everything at the wedding with decorated piñatas, jarritos name cards, refreshing agua fresca, a custom made arbor, and your family friends’ vineyard all made your day special. You are seriously in for a treat of color explosion before your eyes. These two did everything at their wedding and had such creative ways to bring in Veronica’s Mexican heritage. The arbor they made for the wedding…amazing! Lisa seriously freaked because of how beautiful all the color was.

We are so happy for your adorable family Veronica y Bart! Harrison is an adorable little man and you both are doing an amazing job for each other and your adorable son. From our family to yours we love you, and we wish you all the continued happiness in your marriage!

Bart + Veronica – Capitola and Natural Bridges

I fall in love with each couple we have the opportunity to photograph for a million different reasons. The reason why I first fell in love with Bart and Veronica was not because they are getting married in Santa Cruz and wanted beautiful coast lines in their engagement session at Natural Bridges State Park. I fell in love with knowing that we were on a very similar journey and just starting to learn what it was to be parents. They happened to have a baby boy named Harrison who was born three days before our son Bear, and could not have been more excited about the insanity that was already happening in their life together. I knew that familiar sound of excitement, joy and exhaustion in Veronica’s voice when we first talked about her getting married and understood that Bart, and now Harrison, have made her the happiest girl and now mom in the world. I would have done whatever it took to be able to photograph their wedding, not just because we loved their story and we photographed her amazing friend Elise’s wedding, but because their love shined through on phone calls and emails and brightened my day knowing that their little family of three was so happy to be together. That getting married in Santa Cruz where so many of her family had been married in the past matters to both Bart and Veronica. I will say that finally getting to meet the cute, chubby man that is Harrison was extremely fun. He was quiet, well mannered and not afraid to smile at all. He took to having his photo taken with ease! Since we understood that every parent loves their child with all their heart, but a little bit of time spent with just your fiancé is rewarding and fulfilling for your relationship. Grandma and Grandpa had a fun afternoon with Harrison after a couple photos in Capitola allowing us to run off with Bart and Veronica to Natural Bridges State Park. I had never been before and loved the cliffs overlooking the ocean so close to downtown Santa Cruz. I can see why Veronica’s parents moved out there.Natural Bridges Engagement Session 001 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 003 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 004 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 005 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 006 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 007 PhotoaNatural Bridges Engagement Session 009 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 010 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 011 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 015 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 016 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 017 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 018 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 019 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 020 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 023 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 025 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 026 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 027 PhotoNatural Bridges Engagement Session 029 Photo
