I have to say, there’s definitely something special when you truly connect with a client and hear all about their story, especially a love story like Ana + Dmitry’s! They just celebrated their seventh anniversary together over the weekend wine tasting in Temecula Valley and Ana surprised Dmitry with a special anniversary session at Scripp’s Pier in La Jolla right before he caught a flight home to San Francisco. Needless to say, I’m convinced that these two are destined for one another. From the way he makes her laugh to how her eyes glimmer when she catches a glance at him. It’s enough to make your heart melt!
In the weeks leading up to their session, Ana shared with me that Dmitry had surprised her in September with a condo in the Bay Area for when she moves back to be with him in June after finishing up her time here in San Diego as a Student Doctor of Audiology. They plan on remodeling the condo and making it their own, which I am sure with Dmitry’s expertise and career as an Architect, paired with Ana’s decorating visions, their condo will be one amazing sight when it’s complete!
For Ana + Dmitry’s Anniversary Session, we spent the evening together down at Scripps Pier in La Jolla, strolling the beach, climbing on top of rocks and of course playing in the water. And while the weather called for cold and cloudy, the clouds in the sky cleared up just enough to give us this absolute perfect light! Talk about a dreamy and romantic session on the beach! It was a perfect match, just like Ana + Dmitry!
And as if that wasn’t enough to love the two of them and their amazing love story! (Can you hear the pitter patter of my heart yet!?!?) They made me love them even MORE and filled my photographer’s heart with joy when Ana mentioned she wanted to print and display the photos from their session together to fill the walls of their new home!
Thank you Ana + Dmitry for allowing me to capture your love story through my lens and starting off 2018 with me! It was a complete honor to document this season of your life together!
