It's always an honor to photograph any wedding.  It's even more of an honor to photograph the wedding of good friends.  Marisa and Rob held their Darlington House wedding last week. Special thanks to Sharon from Organic Elements for her outstanding floral design, Coast Catering for the detectible food , Concepts Event Design for creating an incredible mood for the evening, fantastic wedding cake by CAKE, and to the lovely Emilie and her crew from the Darlington House.

Jennifer + Matt : San Diego Day-After Wedding Shoot

After a late night shooting Jennifer and Matt's wedding at the Darlington House, we rallied the next morning bright and early at The Grand Del Mar for their San Diego day-after wedding shoot.  Jennifer and Matt looked amazing and, with the pressures of the wedding day behind us, it was so great to make some fun, romantic images wherever we wanted! After working around The Grand Del Mar, we headed north to a secret backcountry location I love.  The high sun and rural landscape helped create the perfect juxtaposition with their formal attire.

Jennifer + Matt : Darlington House Wedding

Before their Darlington House wedding, we started with Jennifer and Matt's wedding photos at the gorgeous Grand Del Mar.  While my associate photographer extraordinaire, Mike, photographed Matt and the boys in and around the bar, I was photographing Jennifer and the girls in their hotel room.  I met Jennifer in her room after she arrived from the hair salon.  Running a bit late, she calmly got dressed and applied her own makeup while her bridesmaids donned the most gorgeous bridesmaids dresses I've seen in some time.  After a wonderful first-look, it was off to the beautiful Darlington House in La Jolla for the ceremony. We arrived at the Darlington House with about 15 minutes to spare, just enough time for some makeup fine tuning for the girls and a quick beer for the guys.  Their ceremony was performed flawlessly by none other than Pastor Mike Mitschke, whom I've had the pleasure of working with several times.  After the ceremony, it was party time!

Stay tuned for images from Jennifer and Matt's day-after session later this week!
