April & Ronny, The Borjas // Elopement

April & Ronnie, The Borjas.


" I met you at such bad timing in my life & you stuck by my side waiting for me to be ready for something so special. You knew before I did that we were meant to be, but once I knew... I knew. "

- To Ronny, Love April

These two have been such a JOY to work with. I have known April for a few years now and have watched her grow into the beautiful person she is today.  April & Ronny met during an emotional transition in April's life when Ronny became her trainer at an MMA gym. Back story: Ronny moved to Los Angeles from Guam to pursue professional fighting. 

6085.7095 miles once separated these two, yet somehow they found each other. A perfect Serendipity.

I had the honor of capturing both their elopement (that she and her sister planned in ONE WEEK) +  following with their engagement photos.

These babes did things a little backwards and I didn't mind one bit. Here's to your FOREVER.

The elopement:

April and her sister Jeanna planned this day in ONE WEEK. April was married in her parents backyard under the arch her father built (that her sister was also married underneath one year ago.)  April's grandmother officiated the ceremony, and the only people present were family + me. Nothing fancy, just LOVE.

During the ceremony, April's sister was able to Facetime Ronny's mother & family back in Guam who weren't able to make it.

Look out for April & Ronny waving to his family via Facetime after being pronounced husband & wife. HAPPY TEARS!

A perfect Summer day.
