Being an Inland Empire wedding photographer only gets better when I hear of stories like Derek & Anais’s. They prove that sometimes you just have to take that leap of faith. Their story didn’t begin on E-harmony or Match.com but rather it started in the Apple store and then moved to Instagram.
Considering I have met some amazing clients and vendors on Instagram, it doesn’t surprise me that it played such an important role for these two! As Orange County wedding photographers we get to shoot a lot of fun engagement sessions but Derek & Anais’s was truly something special. For this blog I’m going to keep it short and sweet but if you’d like to read about how these two met and fell in love, check out their engagement session here.
Over the last year, as they have planned their Ponte Winery Wedding, it has truly been an honor to get to know these two more and to see their love for one another grow even stronger. Their wedding day was full of beautiful moments, from their blind first look where Derek fought so hard to not cry, to the moment Anais was glowing as she walked down the aisle to marry her best friend, to dancing in the grape fields at Ponte Winery and to the very special first dance. To say my heart was smiling for these two would be an understatement and I just had to share some sneak peeks with you! Stay tuned though for the full wedding blog to be posted shortly!
