California photographers, I’m super jealous. You live in such a great state to take photos. The light there is just so wonderful. Needless to say, I fell in love with California.
I was so excited to take photos of Vadim and his family. I met Vadim over 12 years ago (Seriously?! Where does the time go?). Through all of these years he was a great example of both a good man and a Christian. He was always there to help and support my sister and me. One time, when I was young and naive, my friends and I decided to move from Texas to California. We didn’t know where we were going or what we were going to do. I called Vadim and asked him to help us. And he did. He was so nice. I’m so grateful for all of the things that he did for us back then. Looking back now, I understand how spontaneous and crazy our decision was. And how much Vadim helped us. Oh youth and the things you do. Every time I think about that summer I realize how much more mature and wiser I’ve become (I will probably say the same thing in more 10 years, too. haha).
It was so lovely to meet his family. His wife Zhenia is a sweetheart. And the kids are just so adorable. It makes my heart happy to see my friend being happy and well.
We took these photos in Huntington Beach right next to the Huntington Beach Pier.
P.S. Did I tell you that I not only take photos of weddings but also family photos? Contact me for details 😉
