    Do men get lessons in grasping a woman’s purse such as Jorge is in that photo? Brandon does he exact same thing. Not that I expect him to throw it over his shoulder, but it’s always that same grip.

      I think it’s to convey “This is not my purse, I’m just holding it for somebody” in a very clear manner.

      He does carry the floral beach bag over the shoulder whenever we use it, though (you can see it on his other side). And he looks rockin in a pink shirt.

    Wow are those shots amazing! That woman is a genious with the camera; simply gorgeous Laura! I love that cave as well. Is it just a bridge or does it go further in?

      If you look at the last photo, you can see we’re on a walkway along the water. The “bridge” you’re seeing is part of the oceanside walkway that goes through a cave.

    Beautiful photos. I’ve mentioned b4, I love the black and white. And what a way to end the photos .. sitting on a bench!

    Ok, here it goes. You look great. The photos are great. I way overreacted to the term “trashing the dress.” You were right. Noelle is right, you look gorgeous.

    These are gorgeous! The scenery is beautiful and you guys look really happy 🙂

    Why is it called trash the dress?

    I’m sad they are over, but I”ve loved them all – what a great photographer – she captured some very beautiful shots. Great subjects too… you guys look amazing!

    I love these pictures! Do you know if Monica speaks English or at least some? My husband understands enough Spanish, and I speak enough to usually get through a conversation. Would love to use her!

    • Soulnova April 27, 2012 at 8:27 pm #

      She does speak conversational English. You should send her a message on her facebook page or twitter account if you have any questions. 😀
