Monika & Virpi


Monika and Virpi were married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA. I didn’t have the chance to meet these two before the big day, but we did get to chat via FaceTime. I knew from the second we started chatting that this was going to be a great wedding. Not because of the incredible location or the amazing vendors, but because of the love I could see just oozing out of these two. They are beautiful both inside and out and I knew it was going to be great. And as you can see from the photos, this wedding was just perfect. Everyone had a blast! All of their friends and family that came were just awesome. Their friends and family came from all over… from San Diego to Finland! And their choice for a venue was just simply perfect… all of the details just matched them perfectly. I am SO HONORED to have been their photographer and I love the images I was able to get for them on this gorgeous day in Malibu. Congratulations to Monika and Virpi!
