Casino San Clemente – San Clemente, Ca

With every one of my brides, I always try to achieve three things in my images – beauty, elegance, and timelessness. That’s what inspired this styled shoot at The Casino San Clemente. The venue was perfect! Extra points as it served for an excellent rehearsal (we have a wedding this year at the same venue!). We couldn’t have been happier with how fitting of a backdrop we had – from the lush green garden and large, outdoor fireplaces every corner of the venue was picture perfect.

Added to the beauty of The Casino San Clemente was the vintage furniture provided by Storied Rentals. The classic plates, flatware, and napkins provided by Dish Wish, along with all the gorgeous flowers from Enchanted Fine Florals, were expertly styled on our table by Starla of Enchanted Fine Florals. The gold, orange, and red tones of the tablescape brought the set together wonderfully with the venue’s natural setting (LOVE those gold sprayed pomegranates!).

Our lovely bride wore a stunning gown from Bonny Bridal – as if made to order. To complete the look, Melina and Jerry provided flawless makeup, while Dana styled hair to perfection. Photographing the stunning couple was a true pleasure.

We’ve worked with several of these vendors on other shoots in the past, and when we reached out to them to be a part of an Autumn Inspiration Styled Shoot for our brides we got a resounding “Yes!” This group of individuals brought together a gorgeous set-up that I was beyond excited to capture and share.

Ritz-Carlton Cancun – Cancun, Mexico | Destination Wedding

Photographing a wedding is always an awesome adventure, and when the location happens to be Cancun, Mexico – that’s an even bigger adventure! When Larry and Deborah first contacted us to photograph their special day, one of the first things asked was, “Do you do destination weddings?” Our answer? “Of course!” And not too long after that we were on a plane to beautiful Cancun. :) Aside from the natural backdrop offered by the white, sandy beaches and crystal blue ocean at the Ritz Carlton, Deborah’s meticulous attention to detail in planning and creating her dream wedding provided for some fun and gorgeous shots. With an “International Traveling” theme, there was a vintage suitcase to hold guests’ best wishes for the couple, a map to show “Where in the World” each guest was sitting, and even a super cute groom’s cake to match! And we can’t forget the bride’s elegant Vera Wang A-line dress with a ruffled skirt – she looked beautiful! Oh and did we mention that she also wrote and performed a song for her new husband? Yup, she sure did! Take a look at some of our favorite shots and check out their Fusion Slideshow too!
