El Adobe, San Juan Capistrano: Lauren and Matt: Wedding Teaser

I had known Lauren back in high school, but were merely connected through friends. It is always so fun getting connected with people whom you haven't seen or talked to in years, especially when it is such a big occasion as a wedding. I had never met her husband, Matt, but within the first few minutes of meeting him I could tell we were gonna get along like we had known each other for years. I absolutely loved working with him and his guys. For the time being, here are a few images of their fantastic day at the El Adobe. As you can see by all the teasers lately, we have been busy at work. Check back soon and I hope to have their full post highlighting their day up.

La Quinta Resort, Palm Desert: Krisie and Chris: Wedding

Last month we had the most amazing time traveling out to Palm Desert. Our friends Krisie and Chris got married at the beautiful La Quinta Resort. So Brianne and I took that whole weekend and made a small getaway out of it. It was a blast.
The wedding was the best part by far, Krisie did such an amazing job planning and coordinating all the colors and details. It couldn't have been more perfect.
You may remember the engagement shoot Brianne and I shot of them in Balboa, if not check back(Krisie and Chris: Engagment), because their love for each other shines through every picture. Chris ADORES Krisie and it has been so fun to be their photographer and be a part of that special love. When I talked to Chris about their relationship, he said he knew from the first time he met Krisie that she was the one and he couldn't imagine doing anything without her and how he wanted to share all his life's adventures with her!
I love it. I love how they just were captivated by each other throughout the entire day. I love how their reception was one BIG party with a live band and how everyone was having a blast dancing.
It was an incredible day, and an absolute honor to be their photographer.
I hope you enjoy this post in how it shows a glimpse of each part of their day.
Thanks Krisie and Chris for becoming friends of ours and not just clients. We hope to hang with y'all again soon! Congrats to Mr. + Mrs Stone!

Downtown San Diego: Susan and Tony: Engagement

I totally blew it the first time I met with Susan and Tony. I was sitting home in my sweats editing a recent shoot when I got a call from Susan. As normal, I answered it and asked how she was doing and then stated how I was just hanging out getting caught up on some work. Her next words sent a shock through out my body that caused me to spring out of my chair while my jaw hit the floor. "Um Sean" she said in a nice, patient voice. "We are suppose to be meeting right now to talk about wedding photography." I probably was as white as a ghost. I have never gotten ready so quick in my life. I had made the mistake of writing their meeting down for the following Wednesday so I didn't think twice about it that day.

What grace they showed me when I showed up more than a half-hour late and completely frazzled. I am so glad my error didn't cost me the opportunity to work with them because they are such a fun couple. I think their images clearly show the genuineness of their love for each other. I am obsessed with images that capture raw laughter and smiles that are prompted out of love. Our shoot together was filled with these images.

Susan and Tony, I am pumped to be a part of your wedding. I can't wait to capture the emotions of that day.
