“I have to tell you a secret,” she beamed as we walked together toward our cars. We’d just finished Leslie and Robby’s engagement session, and all four of us were talking and laughing and reflecting on the photos we’d just completed. The pair was such a perfect match together, and we’d just explored all the nooks and crannies of the Hotel Palomar, capturing their relationship in this sleek, urban setting. We pulled ahead of Robby, just out of earshot, as she leaned in close and whispered, “I’m wearing a blush dress.” A huge smile spread across her face as she clapped her hands together and said, “I just can’t wait!”

We knew we’d be in for a treat on Leslie and Robby’s wedding day, but it was even better than we could’ve ever expected. From the moment we arrived, sweet Leslie hugged us tightly and announced to everyone in the room, “THESE are my PEOPLE!” We couldn’t have asked for a warmer way to start the day. She positively beamed with every step she took, and when it came time for her to slip into her blush dress, her bridesmaids gasped with excited squeals at the sight of her. She was so beautiful and her love and enthusiasm was contagious. The squeals got louder and the anticipation built as the girls started to talk about what it would be like when Robby saw Leslie. The moment the two of them were together, the air was full of chemistry and they never took their eyes off each other. His eyes grew big, as he took in his bride-to-be, and after a smile spread across his face, all he could get out was “It’s pink!” She laughed, and clapped her hands together, the same way she had months earlier, and you could see in that moment that all her hard work, all her planning, everything she had dreamed of was finally coming true. The two swayed together on the city rooftop, and it was nothing short of magical. Leslie and Robby, thank you for loving us like family and trusting us completely. It was such an honor to capture your beautiful wedding day, and we’re so excited to share just a few of our favorites with you!
