This San Diego Botanical Garden Ultimate Skybox wedding, on the 4th of July no less, oozes inspiration! Heather and Monty were a great change of pace from the get-go! First off, they each wanted to meet with me separately so their own feelings and opinions about what they wanted in their wedding photography could come to the surface, without running the risk of one's judgement being influenced by the other's presence. Monty and I met for a beer in La Jolla Shores, while Heather and I met at my house. During each meeting I was able to get a great sense of who they were, what they liked, and how I could record in the most beautiful way possible their fantastic wedding!
Heather works at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park as specialist for, among other things, several breeds of birds! Pay special attention to the feathers used in Heather's headpiece and bouquet, as well as Monty's boutonniere--they incorporate feathers that were dropped from some of Heather's animal friends at the Park!
Special thanks to Michael for his fantastic help photographing this wedding! Also a shout-out to Amanda from Creative Affairs, Inc., for a great job of designing and coordinating this wonderful event!
