You know those kinds of friends you can instantly reconnect with? The ones you can go long periods of time without seeing, but as soon as you meet again, you pick up right where you left off? Benita and Aric are like that for me, and I was so excited to see their message about wanting to do an updated couple’s shoot. I had the pleasure of photographing Benita and Aric's engagement session and wedding a couple years ago, and this time they were ready for a fun Christmas session!
I wanted to find somewhere extra festive for this shoot, so we headed over to Birch Street in Brea. The area is always decorated so nicely for the holidays with dazzling storefronts, lighted trees, charming benches, and several cute larger-than-life Christmas props along the walkways. I loved Benita’s outfit! She looked gorgeous in a red-lace dress with elegant bell sleeves! She paired it with some cute wedges to complete the look. And Aric looked so handsome by her side.
They have such a sweet kind of love. After a few years of marriage, they look even more in love than ever. He still looks at her with deep adoration. These two are easy on the lens. ;) They still love to just have fun together, so beautiful candid shots are not hard to come by. We enjoyed getting into the holiday spirit as we strolled along the sidewalk and oohed and ahhhed at all the pretty scenes. Sessions with these two hardly feel like work. Thanks for letting me spend an evening with you, Benita and Aric. I always love catching up! Until next time, sweet friends, and have a wonderful 2019!
