Happiest Friday!

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Hey Internet-

It’s been a while that I blog about US, Ari + Erik, duh! We’ve been working so hard the past couple weekends that we forgot what it was to enjoy ourselves. Swaying side to side while shooting your weddings is great and all but it was nice to have an A+E weekend getaway. We visited our friends Brooke + Scott in Virginia and it was so much fun. Boat ride, lots of laughs, ate a little too much and tons of Vine’ing. Yep, we are on a new social media – Vine. Ha! If you are on vine, follow us @erikmotta + @arizapata. Anyhow, thought we’d share one of my fav photos ever taken by Scott.

How fun is this photo? By far my favorite photo of us ever!

Happiest Friday Kids!

Hope you all have a great weekend. 🙂 Figured i share this AMAZING wedding to kick off your day. Okay so yes i say it often, our clients ARE THE BEST and they really are. Here is another wedding which just proves how amazing they are. 😉 This particular wedding was something else, seriously, erik and i were like kids in a candy store. So much beauty and details EVERYWHERE. Boy was it hard to narrow down our favorites to highlight the day. Not only was everything in Jacks Barn amazing, it simply was a magical day wedding. Brace yo’selves!

And so, because it was a day wedding, perfect weather, and because we had an awesome bride + groom…we escaped the party for more shots.

Ernest + Vanessa, such a pleasure to have worked with you. Still drooling over how perfect the day was. From the venue, to the decor, to your friends and family, but most importantly you both. Everything was perfection, like your love.
