You might remember Martha and John from their engagement session at Balboa Park. If you do, well then you wont be surprised to find they decided on the beautiful Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Diego for their venue to celebrate their love with friends and family. An elegant garden party that showcased their love and fun personality. But don’t take our word for it check it out for yourself!
Vallie and Raul’s gorgeous wedding day at Handley Hotel, a family-owned boutique hotel in Mission Valley, the heart of San Diego, CA. The couple decided on a first look and a walk around beautiful Balboa Park, stealing a bit of time alone before the big reveal. Here is their day in highlights. Enjoy!
Chicago’s Lakefront is an incredible place. Especially this little hidden gem ~ Montrose Beach. We just love this place so much, we visit whenever possible and have been enjoying this spot way before we began to shoot engagements here. It has it all the city skyline, the beach, and protected wild nature trails. This place is forever changing, it’s never quite the same each time we visit. This just might have become Kristin + Phil’s spot too!
Lauren and Dave had the most elegant dinner party for their wedding celebration at the InterContinental Magnificent Mile Hotel over looking downtown Chicago. It was an incredible event including a trolley ride around town! But don’t take our word for it for head over to One Fab Day for the entire scoop about this sweet couple and their glamours wedding day!
Another incredible year entering the Shoot&Share Photo Contest! A bit in disbelief that so many of our images (almost covering all of the wedding categories!) made it to the top percentages. Our Wedding Party photo (above) took the 49th spot out of 7,490 images, whoa!!
I didn’t spend as much time voting as I did last year, but the little bit of voting I did do inspired the heck out of me! SO much incredible talent out there and super humbled too, to find our images amongst the greats. I am extremely happy with our results, but most importantly for the courage to enter. A goal for next year is to enter some images outside of the wedding categories 🙂
