I'm sure Parisa gets introduced like this a lot, but I'm not going to be the exception. Parisa is dubbed Google's Security Princess and was named to Forbes 30 under 30 list. You can read about her awesomeness here in a great CNN article. I'll admit that I totally stalked her and read about her when she first reached out to me. Surprisingly, or maybe not so, Parisa is almost extremely laid back, sweet, and funny. I felt so at ease with she and Emerson when we first met at their engagement session. On their wedding day, they each proved that the goal for their wedding was to not just put on a pretty party, but to give their guests a truly fun and memorable experience. There were personal touches around ever turn, including the photo booth that Emerson made completely by hand in their backyard, the lemons used for the place cards that came from the tree in their backyard, and the froyo at the reception since that's where they went on their first date and also where Emerson proposed. Although both vegans, they treated their guests to amazing food including fish tacos and condiments made by family members. Oh a selfish note, I am so happy that Parisa wore a gorgeous flowy gown by Sarah Seven and her hair down. It was a slightly windy day which added an air of romance to their photos. As the sun set, we enjoyed a loving and gracious speech by Parisa's father and laugh-out-loud funny speeches by Parisa's two best friends and four of Emerson's. They danced the night away and their guests showed off their mad dance floor skills (I'd totally die if I tried half of the things they did).
Parisa and Emerson, thank you for allowing me to photograph your wedding. You truly were dream clients in every day :)
