Love Times Three

Here we are. My sisters and I. Triplets. Looking back on these photos brings me so much happiness. These treasured photographs have stood the test of almost 33 years. We don’t have thousands of photos like I do of my kids but the photos I do have of my sisters and I are priceless. Having these tangible prints within a simple white, 3 ring binder will forever be one of the most valuable things I own.

DAVID + STEPHANIE // SURPRISE CRYSTAL COVE PROPOSAL

The romantic misty coastal fog, still lingering. The air, salty and crisp. My heart thumping to the beat of my footsteps. I turn at the bend and there they are. Try to keep up. Not too close. She looks over her shoulder. I turn the other way. One, two, three. Turn back around. Try to keep up. Not too close. There's the spot we talked about. The lookout on the cliff, overlooking the mysteriously alluring ocean. Wait for it. There he goes. Fight the tears. Oh, so romantic!

PAM + KHA // MODERN BLUSH GARDEN GROVE WEDDING

The Noguchi Garden was the perfect backdrop for a beautiful, classic yet modern, couple. The warm Southern California sun was shining. The air, more brisk since the turn of fall. Deep breath. Close your eyes. Hold one another. Take in the moment.  All these soft spoken words flew from my lips and landed upon their shoulders. A moment, paused. A squeeze of the hand. A gentle smile, forming. Soaking in these short minutes of just the two of them; as husband and wife, before the big bridal party joins to celebrate with them. A quiet reflection of realizing you are now married to your soul mate, your best friend. Couples portraits after the wedding ceremony are one of my favorite times during a wedding day. The love radiating from Pam and Kha was truly magical.

The laughter, contagious. The sweet kisses, continuous. The hands, softly holding the cute little baby bump. The gentle waves peacefully landing on the smooth pebbles along the shoreline. The ocean breeze picked up as the sinking sun lowered in the cotton candy sky. Moments passed cuddled up warmly in one another's arms, watching the sun set. In a few short weeks, baby Maliwat will be snuggled up alongside Blaire and Andrew.
