Mike & Michelle are the sweetest couple - they have big hearts and are incredibly personal. I'm sure they will pass these awesome traits on to their kids. In fact, a big congrats to them since they just announced they will be having their first child this fall! I'm so excited for them as I know it has been an answer to many prayers. This was an anniversary shoot to celebrate all kinds of things, but mostly to celebrate that love endures through the best and worst of times. Since Mike is a landscape architect, he had a perfectly manicured backyard with california native plants and a big lemon tree, so undoubtedly his masterpiece was a great backdrop for the photo session. The local park had a beautiful large field and as you know, california sunsets on a wide open plain are simply magical. Not only are M & M a photogenic couple, they're so gentle, kind and loving toward each other and I really wanted these images to show how amazing that is.
