Wedgewood Sterling Hills, Rachel & Chris
Happy New Year Friends!
The holidays where a time of warmth and happiness, a time where families reunite and homemade treats are baked with love. Just as children anxiously await christmas morning—Rachel and Chris had the pleasure of waiting as their wedding day finally approached. It was beautiful to witness the marriage of Rachel and Chris Aitken in Camarillo California.
Their wedding no doubt had it’s own unique style. As this couple went through the hussle and bussle of wedding preparations, they were able to stay calm, cool and collective, as they awaited their big moment.
Rachel and Chris had been together 8 years, their romance beginning in their teenage years as high school sweethearts! Rachel had asked Chris to prom and since that day—have been together ever since. Friendship turned into romance, romance turned into long distance relationship, and long distance relationship turned into engagement. After 4 long years of engagement, it was finally time. From the first time they saw each other in high school up until their first look, Rachel and Chris’s friendship had sprouted from their teen years and now had matured into the love that is there today.
One of their favorite moments of the day was the First Look! As Chris was looking into the distance of the hills, we could see the look of excitement on his face, as he waited for his bride. Rachel walked up behind Chris and with one touch on his shoulder, he turned where their eyes met for the first time since morning. It was evident that both of them were ready to be wed from the adoring look in their eyes.
Taking photos for the first look has to be one of my favorite moments of a wedding. It’s the moment where I get to capture an intimate and precious moment that will last a lifetime. It’s amazing to be entrusted with that responsibility!
Well enough talking lets get to the pictures !
