The internet is a crazy crazy place. One minute you could be spammed questionable emails from a Nigerian prince and the next minute, you could be getting a sweet email from a blog reader. This particular blog reader's name is Katie. She asked if I could take pictures of her and her husband, Merrick. They are about to celebrate their two-year anniversary (woot! 2009 brides unite!) and they thought taking them in Laguna Beach would be a fun idea.
Not only was it fun but it was FABULOUS. I've never seen a couple that was so comfortable in front of a camera. As Katie said, "Everyone likes pictures of themselves, right?" A girl after my own heart. Katie and Merrick have the honor (although the honor was mine) of being the first people I photographed that I had never met before.
As we were walking down to the beach to start our session, Katie gave me the run down about how she chose their outfits for the day. We were heading down the stairs when a flock of seagulls flew overhead and bombed Merrick. Poor Merrick! We trooped on and they really rose above it all.
You would have thought these two were newly engaged. They are so in love and full of laughs. They really thrive in Laguna Beach and why wouldn't they? It was a gorgeous day, so different from their native Michigan.
Thank you both for being awesome and for being great sports. Hope to see you again soon!
They made sure I didn't get hit by any cars!
