Summer Wedding

MATT & ELLEN | BROOKLYN, NEW YORK ENGAGEMENT

MATT & ELLEN | BROOKLYN, NEW YORK ENGAGEMENT

We love being photographers, and when we get to photograph new people in new places it’s the ultimate. New York isn’t a place we visit often, so getting to shoot Matt and Ellen where they live in Brooklyn was a welcomed change of scenery for our California-filled portfolio.

CHRISTIAN & RACHAEL | CASA ROMANTICA WEDDING

CHRISTIAN & RACHAEL | CASA ROMANTICA WEDDING

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.

ANDREW & LEAH | NAPA VALLEY ESTATE WEDDING

ANDREW & LEAH | NAPA VALLEY ESTATE WEDDING

As the classic movie Father of the Bride so perfectly displays, there’s no place more personal to get married in than one’s childhood home. Some of the best weddings we’ve photographed have taken place in such a venue, Leah and Andrew’s being no exception. 

DILLON & JESSIE | VASQUEZ ROCKS ENGAGEMENT

DILLON & JESSIE | VASQUEZ ROCKS ENGAGEMENT

Photography has proven to be a great profession for 1) meeting new people and 2) seeing new places. We’re grateful for all our clients, and especially grateful when they’re ready and able to venture beyond their daily surroundings to discover new terrain.

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA BEACH & BACKYARD WEDDING

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA BEACH & BACKYARD WEDDING

Our final wedding of the summer was Tommy and Kristen’s. What a perfect day to close out the sunniest season to celebrate love.

We’ve seen a lot of weddings, and we’ve learned there are a few components that make a wedding great: 2 people in love ready to be together forever, a celebration with who they love most, where they love most, details unique to them, whether simple or elaborate, a bonus.

DANIEL & HELAI | CARMEL MOUNTAIN RANCH WEDDING

DANIEL & HELAI | CARMEL MOUNTAIN RANCH WEDDING

Daniel and Helai’s wedding celebration was intimate and sweet. It was held at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club with about fifty of their family members and closest friends. I didn’t find this out until I arrived, but technically Daniel and Helai were already married. A few days prior, they went to a mosque and received the blessing to get married, so the day I was there to photograph was more of a wedding reception to commemorate their marriage with those they hold dear.
