Marika + Jess: Anniversary Couple's Photo Session at Longwood Gardens

       A few weeks ago we left foggy San Francisco and landed in the hot summer, of green Pennsylvania for a wedding in the Brandywine Valley, and also had a chance to do a photo session with our dear friends Marika + Jess, to celebrate their anniversary.

        The day after the wedding, we visited Longwood Gardens, a spectacular garden with Italian-inspired fountains, evoking the opulence of the Old World in the natural wooded splendor of the East Coast. Marika + Jess, who we fondly nicknamed M.J., are the most sweet and compassionate couple. We are pretty much crazy about these two and were so happy to be able to take their photos, to commemorate their love -- so much love!
