Vendors Vendors Vendors! (Part Two: Photographer)

After choosing my venue (well, actually, to be honest, probably even before that) I found my photographer.

When I began the wedding venue hunt, and more specifically when I moved the location hunt to Palm Springs I came across the wedding of Natalie (of Mint Love Social Club) whose Palm Springs Wedding I was obsessed with from the start. Not only was she one of the driving forces behind me even being open to the idea of an estate wedding, it was also her photos that lead me to the wonderful Roger of EPlove.

I decided early on that the photographer was going to be one of, if not THE most important part of the wedding. At the end of the day when the guests have left and the cake has been eaten, it's the photos that you have forever. Not only do I love all of Rogers photos, I also love his mellow and relaxed vibe and I knew that Sam would do.

In April we took a trip to Idyllwild (where Roger and his gorgeous family live) for a relaxing weekend and engagement shoot. From the moment we met, we were at ease. Our photos turned out amazing because we weren't posing. We were just being us.

(Fun Fact: the blanket we used was a family heirloom)
Roger captured real smiles, real laughs, and, most importantly, real love.

We ended our shoot over pizza, good conversation and goodbye hugs. I'm so excited to have Roger as a part of our special day and {through his photos} our lives forever.
