Despite the sweltering hot 118 degree weather, Erika and Ted were incredibly cool. I’m kind of proud of that little pun I just threw in there. But really, the incredible journey to Palm Springs, during which I saw my thermometer increase every ten minutes, was worth it when I got to meet Erika and Ted who are so, so, so, refreshing!! Their kindness, bubbly personalities, and easygoings nature made this engagement session a breeze and makes me love my job more and more, and more. We photographed this engagement session at the Parker Hotel which is a very artsy, swanky, and nice hotel, giving us plenty of spots for awesome photos. Two bottles of wine, a round of margaritas, a nice sit down dinner, and a gallon of sweat later we called it a day. I think I get the best couples ever and have one of the coolest jobs ever.

I was talking to my friend John earlier today, who’s also a wedding photographer and he emphasized and reminded me that it is such a great privilege for us (wedding photographers) to be part of a couple’s most important day of their lives. And it truly is amazing to be around people who are so happy and so excited to have their photo taken. And knowing that they’re depending on you and trusting you to do what we love to do is such an amazing feeling.

Thank you so much Erika and Ted!
