Andrew and Carolyn are two of my most favorite clients ever (they paid me to say that)…but seriously, I love these two. From the moment I met them, they were a blast to hang with. Their engagement session was full of laughs and even helped give birth to the #hiwerethecheneys hashtag they used for their wedding.
There was so much love and laughter, and lots of tears throughout the day on Friday. We started at a rental house in La Jolla and ended up at the Darlington House closer to the coast. It’s a beautiful little venue, with all kinds of history and amazing Victorian style. The shots of Carolyn in the little parlor room were some of my favorites.
To me there is nothing like a destination wedding. The people seem to be more relaxed because they are likely on vacation for a few days and just enjoying the time with friends. This was no different. And to top it off, I got to see Jenna and Rob, two clients of mine who have now been married near nine months! Always one of my favorite things is seeing past clients at their friends’ weddings.
Plus there was Dodo the legendary women’s tennis player, a former Oakland A’s player, the long-snapper for the Carolina Panther’s, a wonderful sibling’s tribute dance, a dad’s dance and good toasts. It was a perfect evening.
Thank you to Amy Nehmens from Every Little Detail for planning a perfect event and keeping us on course. And to my buddy Aaron Hoskins…he joined me, along with both our families, to help photograph the day and to hang out at the beach in our downtime. We had such an awesome time.
Finally…Carolyn and Andrew, I truly want to thank you guys for making me laugh and all the kind words you’ve had for me since we met. I wish you guys the best of luck and I’ll TRY VERY HARD not to freak out if I don’t hear from you for a year or two until the kiddies arrive!
