Romantic Garden Wedding at Bella Vista Groves // Eric & Mandy

Romantic Garden Wedding at Bella Vista Groves  //  Sun & Sparrow 2020 // Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographers


As we were awoken by the faint scent of freshly brewed coffee, we were reminded that our day had finally arrived. A year’s worth of planning was coming to fruition and gravity of the day began to sink in, as we sipped on our coffee. Due to the unpredictable events that happened in 2020, countless decisions and pivots were made as we planned for this day. We were both anxious and nervous, knowing that this would not be a traditional wedding ceremony with all of our extended families and friends by our side. However, we knew we had the blessings of all of our loved ones and we were ready to officially tie the knot. This day signified the beginning of a new chapter for both of our lives, one that will undoubtedly be filled with love and joy.

 

From the groom (Eric): Leading up to the first look, I was filled with eagerness and nerves. The minutes waiting for Mandy to walk out the doors behind me felt like hours, however looking at my stunning soon-to-be wife was worth the wait. I had no idea what Mandy would look like in her wedding dress, I just knew she would be beautiful regardless (and I was right).

 

From the bride (Mandy): When it was finally time for me to sneak up behind Eric for our first look, a feeling of nerves mixed with excitement swirled in my stomach. I tried to remain calm, but I could feel my heart race as I walked towards Eric. When Eric finally turned around and our eyes met, a flashback of all the memories we had created together came rushing to my mind. From the good to the bad, we had already experienced so much together and I felt so lucky to be standing in front of my lifelong partner, whom I was ready to create more memories with.

 

The day of our wedding was truly a perfect day and we felt like royalty. Our amazing planner and vendors made our vision come true. From the florals down to the table linen, everything was magical. We are so grateful to have amazing photographers, Sun & Sparrow, capture every moment and detail so that we could relive our fairytale moment over and over again.

Mermaid Inspired Maternity Shoot // Southern California Maternity Photographer

This mermaid-inspired maternity session perfectly captured the grace and charm of dancing waves. The most memorable moments in life can feel as if they are the only moments that exist and we want to rest in this moment for as long as we can. 

 

We had a wonderful time photographing Jessica’s mermaid-inspired maternity session. Her smile is enough to charm anyone and we want to share it with the world. Her green dress adds a wonderful touch to an already perfect environment, full of beauty and peace, and her hair is gorgeous too!

 

There are so many beautiful photo locations in Southern California, and the secret field in Palos Verdes provides the perfect atmosphere to highlight this beautiful time in Jessica and Stefan’s life. Gentle looks and soft light hold anticipation as they prepare to bring new life into the world. Their joy becomes ours as we take in the beauty of these pictures. We are so excited for them and their little one!

 

Pregnancy is a time full of wonder and contemplation and we love how Jessica’s pictures tell us that she already loves her new child with everything that she is. It is amazing how the simplest moments in life can become some of the memories that we cherish forever. In the midst of the short time we have to anticipate new life we experience long days and we can get impatient to be with our new loved ones, but there is so much beauty in the moments that carry us through to all of our destinations.

Ballerina Portraits || Sweet Rachel

This session is a special one for us, and more so for Ellie who had the honor of photographing this beautiful ballerina. The dancer you see here is our cousin, a very beautifully quiet soul, and one who can really shine when you put your trust in her!

Ellie and Rachel had such a beautifully connected time doing this shoot together, not only because Rachel is wonderful, but because Ellie also graduated with a college degree in dance specializing in ballet and modern and knew just what to do to find those pristine portraits in such a specialized field. What a perfect combination for a portrait session! The way that these came together couldn’t have been more passionate and beautiful. We are just so excited to share these images with you. If you are also a dancer or dream of the days when you did, please leave a comment and tell us a little about your story!  We love to find the ways we all connect to one another, and we want to connect with YOU!
