A romantic sunrise elopement at San Gabriel Park.

Y'all, this elopement made me fall in love even more with sunrise sessions! When Anna reached out to me about the plans for their wedding day I was ecstatic and impressed with their willingness to start their day before the sun even rose, and boy oh boy am I glad that they did! This summer has been a HOT one, and we knew the best way to beat the heat was to get out there early, and luckily we even had a cool breeze going that day.

Not only am I in love with the captures we achieved from this session because of the hints of sunrise sky and lack of heat exhaustion, but its because of how wonderful these two are. Anna and Mike are so in love. Its beautiful. They snuggled, and nuzzled, and gave each other gentle kisses all morning without me having to say a word. They were both so excited for the day. You could see the joy and emotion radiating off of the two of them. There tears and laughs, and even a squirrel that tried to interrupt the ceremony by stealing some snacks. Haha. We couldn't have asked for more!
