Hacienda De Las Flores, Moraga Wedding Photography
I love these people.  Alyssa first "online-stalked" me (her words, not mine) almost three years ago.  Sitting down with Alyssa and Reed, it was almost an instant connection.  Since that time we've forged a deep friendship.  We've been through ups and downs in relationships, life, and all the things that come with it.  Going from "vendor" to "friend" to "close friend" [...]
