Day After Session in Sonoma
It’s been a while but I’ve been busy: the end of the season, the catching up with editing to send the photos as fast as possible… And some unplanned shoots like this one: a day after session in Sonoma :)
Everything was perfect that day and I’m a little bit in love with those photos (and the location!) Hope you’ll like them!
Happy Holidays everybody! Enjoy your loved ones.
Bon, donc ça fait un petit moment que je n’ai rien posté mais j’ai été pas mal occupée: la fin de la saison et tout le post traitement à faire au plus vite pour mes petits couples… Et quelques sessions photos imprévues comme celle ci: une session jour d’après (aussi connue sous le nom de Trash the Dress ou Day After) dans la région de Sonoma :)
Tout était parfait ce jour là et je suis amoureuse de ces photos (et du coin, paradisiaque !) J’espère qu’elles vous plairont !
Bonnes fêtes de fin d’année tout le monde. Profitez bien des gens que vous aimez.
How They Met
Erika & Marcus both happened to be camping at Stonyford on Saturday, April 3, 2010. Stonyford is a camping and OHV riding area in the Mendocino National Forest.
While Marcus was off riding dirt bikes with his friends all day, he left Joey (his boxer) behind at the campsite. Lola (Erika’s boxer) wanted a friend so Erika decided to let Joey play with Lola. Lola happened to take quite a liking to Joey that weekend! The dogs clearly knew something we did not.
Luckily there was a family camping between the two groups that exchanged contact information with Marcus and his friends, and Erika and her friends. Marcus and Erika ran into each other over the summer at the family’s house that they both met camping.
There was always a spark between the two and that summer Marcus made a move…they shared their first kiss on a jet ski at sunset. However, the timing was off and Erika wasn’t quite ready for anything to develop between the two. Marcus moved back to Colorado in November of 2010 and Erika & Marcus stayed in touch on Facebook and through occasional calls and text messages.
Fate decided to step in when Marcus came back to California for a visit at the end of January 2011. Marcus and Erika spent some time together one evening and the beginning of the rest of their lives started that night! Marcus extended his visit in California to spend more time with Erika, but he eventually had to fly home to Colorado. Erika dropped Marcus off at the airport and they had a plan for Marcus to move back to California 4-6 weeks later.
That only lasted 10 days….they couldn’t stand to be apart from each other! Erika flew out to Colorado, met Marcus’ amazing family and friends and they drove back to California together to start their life together.
