This wedding is so beyond special to me because Gilbert is a dear friend of mine! I met Gilbert about two years ago on Instagram of all places! We started following each other because we were both wedding photographers, and had a mutual admiration for each other's work. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that our "following" each other would turn into the awesome friendship we have today!
Anyone that is close to me knows that I had one of the worst wedding photography experiences ever! In fact, this is the reason I started my wedding photography business. I am so incredibly passionate about delivering only the BEST to my clients! When Gilbert heard my horrific story, he offered to re-shoot our romantic pictures, giving my husband and I an amazing gift! So, when Gilbert asked me to photograph his wedding I was beyond ecstatic! I was deeply humbled and filled with love ready to give back the gift he gave me!
Gilbert and Arleen are beyond perfect for one another, geez they even look like one another! They both are so beautiful inside and out! The way Gilbert looks at Arleen is how every man should look at their wife! He is over the moon in love with her, and Arleen is just as in love! They tied the knot at Saddle Peak Lodge in beautiful Calabasas. The wedding was super intimate with really close friends and immediate family, which in my opinion is the best! It was such an amazing day filled with love, God, and family! I am so thrilled that Arleen and Gilbert found one another. I am so excited to see their lives unfold together, I know the best is yet to come!!! Congratulations Arleen & Gilbert, All my love!!!
