Lexi and Jordan are where a delight to spend a windy afternoon with in at the Mission San Juan Capistrano. https://www.missionsjc.com Lexi gave so much attention to the detail of her engagement session, but the caveat was that rain was forecasted and the sky was ominous. Being that the save the dates needed to get out she chose to take a leap of faith and head into the weather, embracing what the say might hold. I was very proud of her optimism and how she faced the chill of the wind in her stylish wardrobe. In the end, they where rewarded with dynamic photography on a day most couples may have stepped around. The next morning I met Jordan at his restaurant that he started while still in High School, yes its true! The many choices of eggs benedict at www.whatadishoc.com/ , where creative and I was very impressed with his culinary ninja skills. I always enjoy the ambiance of doing wedding photography in Laguna Beach and Engagement Sessions.
A Telluride Winter Wedding ….Billy Idol’s, “White Wedding,” has been stuck in my head as I am editing these images. the main line, “It’s a fun theme for this intimate wedding celebration at the Alpino Vino in Telluride, Colorado. Andrea and John’s wedding integrated world-class landscapes, a stylish wedding party, and the classy planning of Amy Palamar, owner of Polished Fun Event Planning.I really enjoyed documenting Andrea and John’s laugher, tears, and family memories. It was unforgettable taking the snow cat to the top of the mountain to see a magnificent view of Telluride. The professional and knowledgeable staff at the Alpino Vino will be well remembered, as the sun set and the party enjoyed their five cuisine and world famous wines. The snow swirled and danced in the wind as the blue horizon faded into black outside the chalet. The warm guests ate at the fireside, while celebrating the love that Andrea and John had found in each other.
My lovely client Ashley and I where talking on the phone about her wedding and our conversation moved towards our mutual passion for travel. Her awesome fiancé Brian was taking her to Cuba to explore and enjoy the culture and I echoed my mutual aspiration to visit the country. I suggested we do her engagement session there instead of Colorado and she lit up at the idea. We created some colorful, playful, and romantic images while wondering the streets of old Havana. We cruised through the sunset on the sea side streets of the Malecon in a teal, 55 Chevey Bel-Air and enjoyed a new friendship eating among the old Spanish architecture. The backdrop was charming, the mojitos where festive, and the city welcomed us like an old friend with her rhythmic rumbas. Enjoy the eye candy! Destination engagement sessions are the best way to develop a meaningful relationship!
