Hanging on the wall above my bed is an 8ft, vintage American flag. I love my country and it is a prized possession. This past July it became the inspiration and back drop for a photoshoot to be featured on Southern California Bride to celebrate not only love but America’s freedom. Damaris, SoCal Bride’s creator and editor put out a model call for a newly engaged or married couple and so I met Nicole and Brent. They could not have been more awesome, in love, and totally on board with my ideas. We met at Orange County’s Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park in Coto de Caza, and had a ton of fun. They traipsed through underbrush, climber a small trees and even ran a couple sprints (you’ll see). I am in love with the results. thank you Damaris for connecting me with an amazing couple and thank you Nicole and Brent for absolutely rocking the shoot.
