Meet Kaddie and Kevin. Kaddie is a shoe designer and Kevin is a motion-capture artist/engineer (Avatar, anyone?). Safe to say that with an eclectic couple like this, shooting their elopement in La Jolla is going to kick ass. After mulling over several location ideas, we settled on La Jolla, as we can get a bunch of different looks in without a lot of driving. Kevin and Kaddie arrived fantastically dressed to the nines and with a bevy of props, from a deck of cards to a killer wooden picture frame.
Although legally already married (they had a small ceremony at the courthouse a while back), neither of them wore wedding rings. That is, until later in the shoot, when they exchanged rings for the first time during an intimate ceremony on the beach. It was such an honor for me to have shared that moment with them!
