Vanessa is a photographer’s dream! I had chosen this Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini dress for her VIP session (the white one) and had high hopes. We started the session with hair and makeup by the famously talented Jen at the Willow Room Salon, then headed over near Bay Arts capturing some gorgeous flowers that were still in bloom. She made a quick change into the purple Monique Lhuillier dress and we headed over near one of our favorite iron fences. If you live in the area you are probably familiar with it and pass by it ALL OF THE TIME at Huntington Beach. We had several honks. Ok, Vanessa had several honks. Sarah and I (Frick and Frack)… we no longer get honks… sad face… but I digress. Next we headed to the boat club and the beach, baby! That’s right… gorgeous trickling waterfall… yes, please. Vanessa put on the Philosophy dress and BAM! She looked so freaking goooooorgeous. Her hair was perfectly flowing in the breeze, she bravely started wading in the water (which was quite brisk at this point in the season). Moana had nothing on Vanessa. The waters were calling her. And she answered. Don’t worry… we took extra good care of the dress ;).
