Norwalk Garden Wedding | Bobby & Gianny

With two weeks from the proposed wedding date, Gianny contacted me. After hearing her story we quickly planned for an engagement session. Two weeks doesn't sound like enough time to plan a wedding, but the over-achiever she is, Gianny pulled it off beautifully! It was a very intimate garden wedding in the presence of their closest family and friends.
We started the afternoon off at the bride's parents home, where she would prepare, in her words, for the happiest day of her life. From the first time we spoke over the phone, it was evident that she was really looking forward to the day she would be called "Mrs Galindo" - how cute is that. The yellow Enzo Angiolini's she wore was her something borrowed from both her sisters - they had all worn the same shoes on their wedding day! 

No one had to tell me, but its obvious they are a close-knit family & everyone wanted to help :)

thank you Candice for the following shot

Pregnancy Update - The past two weeks I finally started feeling pregnant. Like my body just realized there is a bun in the oven! Feels like my body is stretching like crazy. Honestly, before the only reason my husband believed that I was pregnant was because of the little bump... and now, lets just say its not so little. At my 24 week check up, even the doctor was surprised how much the belly had grown in just four weeks - a whopping 9 inches! Went from 20 to 29 inches!! I'm not able to just hop up & out of bed anymore, I need an extra couple seconds to muster up strength now. Walking for long periods of time isn't as pleasant as before.  With all that said, as baby Emma grows I am now able to feel her kick and punches stronger & when she gets hiccups it just melts my heart. It truly is amazing. And having the wonderful husband that I do, just makes this experience all that more delightful! I love you Edwin<3

Just started reading her one of my all-time favorite novels, Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Let's make this a productive week... Happy Monday love's!

Fullerton Styled Session | Andra + James

Its an instant feeling you get when your around them... Love and respect for one another that radiates and shined through both of them. Throughout the entire session it was pretty obvious to me how well they compliment each other. Seeing them made me want to rush home to hubs & I love when couples make me feel that way... All the more reason to love what I do!

Andra & James, thank you for being your amazing selves & for letting me do one of my favorite things - capture heartfelt love through my camera.
