Before Rachey and Mark got married in beautiful Maui (photos of that soon to come), I got to spend a whole afternoon taking pictures of them here. It was the first time I had to lead a shoot. Thank goodness for my awesome friend and 2nd shooter, Andrew (of the soon-to-be famous ABDS. His photos are the un-logo’d ones)! I really couldn’t have asked for a better “assistant” and we really couldn’t have asked for a better day. The sun shone high above Santa Monica that June afternoon, but it was warm, not scorching. The breeze that ran through 3rd Street Promenade was a welcome and gentle relief.
Rachey and Mark’s new apartment was still a bit bare back then, with furniture placed in scattered spots. But what made it a home wasn’t really anything they had to carry. Having been together since high school, Rachey and Mark’s history in love permeated throughout. It’s easy to see how long ago this marriage was planned.
Thanks so much, Rachey and Mark, for letting a couple of your amature photographer friends take pictures of you for 4 hours. I know all the kissing must’ve been unbearable =)
