It wasn't until the second time he moved to Washington D.C. that he walked into a restaurant and saw Elena.Jeff had no expectations this time around, because the first time he had moved to Washington D.C. years earlier, he thought his life would become everything he had ever hoped.But it wasn't until he grew a little and lived a little and took a chance on moving back again that his eyes locked with this amazing girl and his life truly changed forever.Because their connection was nearly instant.Jeff and Elena met, went on a date, hung out three days later, and haven't been apart since. In fact, just two months after they met, these two embarked on an epic road trip around the entire United States - just the two of them, packed into a car, with absolutely no agenda for eight weeks.And that's how they ended up in San Diego.Out of all of the places they visited in the entire U.S., they loved San Diego the most. So when they were about to head back home, they took a right turn and headed back here.So yeah, these guys are the COOLEST.Jeff and I can spot soulmates from a mile away, and these two are IT. They've got the kind of BFF-soulmate-partner-for-life connection that Jeff and I experience, too, so when I heard their story, I couldn't NOT shoot their wedding! #dreamiesThese two settled in La Jolla when they moved to San Diego, and their favorite thing to do together is to peddle along the La Jolla bike path at sunset and stroll the beach. So we hit up this local hidden gem to document their favorite hangout spot, and then they took us to their favorite little beach for an EPIC sunset.Seriously friends, based on the insanely gorgeous sunset and the oh-so-perfect session we had, these two live a crazy charmed life! Jeff and Elena: Ummmmm... we want to hang out with you guys like ALWAYS!! If you're ok with moving up your wedding date to next week so we can hang out again... and then again... and then again... that would be great. :) LOL! Seriously - your connection is unreal, your friendship is amazing, and your future together is solid. We're so honored to share in this chapter of your love story my friends!!Hugs,
