For a cool, playful, gorgeous couple like Carli and Patrick, we wanted a rad, well-lit backdrop with plenty of space for their love to come alive. Palm Springs was the perfect spot - their engagement photos tell the tale. Unless you’re a super model, but let’s be real Carli could be one, being natural in front of a camera doesn’t come easy. But when love does between two people, the chemistry kicks in and produces the magic we hope for in every photo shoot.
Now that Southern California has established it is subject to rainy days, anyone getting married soon is accepting the possibility. Brandon and Emily’s La Jolla wedding day couldn’t have had more perfect weather. Clear, sunny and calm, the California climate most know and love. Even in the middle of winter, summer can be felt and seen. This is what Brandon and Emily had for their big day.
Just when I’m tempted to pull the plug on Facebook, it connects me with someone I otherwise may not have connected with. I grew up in Nashville and attended school with the incredibly sweet McMeen family. Through Facebook they knew I was a wedding photographer in California. When they reached out to us about Rachael marrying a California boy and moving out West, we were thrilled to be available to shoot their San Clemente wedding.
