There were many highlights to this day, including a reading of their love story from each perspective . . . But back to the beginning . . . As I turned the bend on 101 towards Pismo, expecting bright blue skies – there before me was the thickest fog I had seen in ages. As a photographer, it made my day, being provided a gigantic softbox knowing that my bride and groom would not be dealing with harsh shadows and contrast from the bright sun. The setting was magical, complete with a gazebo decorated with flowing white material.
Oh my gosh! I am so far behind since my computer died . . . and it took 2 weeks to get my new one. The good news – it is Bigger and Beefier and I now have 2 monitors. All the more I can get done better and faster!
Laura and Daniel flew out from back east – Laura grew up in this area and dreamed of a beach wedding. Now technically, this was not a wedding, but a renewal. They’ve been married for 4 years – but you would never know it! They were as giddy as a new bride and groom. I loved watching them interact with such joy, elation, and emotion.
The ceremony at The Cliffs in Pismo Beach, Ca. was quite short and I was only there for a couple of hours, but I came away with some awesome shots that I know they will treasure every time they look at them.
I only spent about 4 hours with Annike, Keith and their family and friends – but I left feeling like one of the group. The bride and groom are both full of life, full of love and full of fun – and they have a way of making everyone feel like they’re along for the ride! And I got to see Aaron and Cristin there, whose wedding I had shot almost two years ago – now with a darling little girl added to their family.
This couple not only love each other – they like each other. They’ve known each other since kindergarten – went their separate ways after school – and then met each other again two years ago – Love at first sight, the second time around!
