Sarah and Jimmy’s Windansea Beach Engagement

sarahjimmyengagementblog-62

Sarah and Jimmy are getting married! We had a great little evening celebrating their engagement at Windansea Beach near La Jolla and caught the most beautiful sunset while doing so. Their little 4 month old fur baby, Ryder, came along for the ride and he was such a hit with the beach folk! I was happy to show these two my favorite beach spot, since they have been living in San Diego for only about a year now. They are getting married back home next year! Congrats to you both!

Sister Beach Time

groffgirls2016blog-36Ah! My original models! Jenna and Piper are on the blog yet again! These two girls are such a joy to watch grow in front of my eyes! On this day they hopped out of the car and just bombarded me with questions. “Do you remember babysitting us!?” “Were you our swim teacher?” “Do you have a boyfriend?” “Do you come to this beach a lot?”. They are just the cutest! They are also incredibly easy to photograph, if that isn’t obvious enough. While they are such great individual models, I love photographing them TOGETHER. They have an intense sister bond, that goes even further. They are best friends too! They know each other better than anyone else and I feel like they can read each others minds as well. Stop growing so fast girls!

Katie and Wayland’s Huron SubStation Wedding

katiewaylandweddingblog-41Katie and Wayland’s wedding was a perfect example of how personalized weddings can be, which I love. Originally they didn’t think they wanted a wedding, but then they took a tour of the Huron Substation and immediately could envision their friends and family dancing and celebrating with them in this space! Katie and Wayland are both improv comedians, and would say that about 90% of their wedding guests were too! Obviously, that was a perfect set up for a great event. The couple decided to walk down the aisle together, and then even wrote each others vows. The crowd laughed along as vows were exchanged, (I can’t remember everything said, but I do vividly remember the act of googling the worlds largest carrot was mentioned…), and then the two were married! But how did this all start? Katie tells how the two actually met:

“We met working at a summer camp in Arizona in 2004. We were friendly at camp, but went home to different states at the end of the summer. Nine years later, I (Katie) moved to LA and realized that Wayland also lived here. My brother and I went out for drinks with Wayland just to reconnect from camp (it was the day before my brother moved out of LA – I made him go with me because he and Wayland knew each other better at camp and I was scared Wayland wouldn’t remember me). We’ve talked every day since then!”

The rest of the night was a combination of feasting on Italian pizza and Mexican churros, and some interesting dance moves by the whole wedding crowd. It was a blast and am very happy and excited for Katie and Wayland! Congrats!!
