I had been looking forward to photographing Raquel and Matt's Crosby Club wedding photos since the day they booked me, back in March sometime. Not only was I working with some very talented vendors at a gorgeous venue, but Raquel struck me as one of the sweetest people I had ever met. For some backstory on the images, please check the captions.
Special thanks to the following vendors who helped make Raquel and Matt's wedding so very special:
*Catherine Bachelier-Smith | CBS Lifestylist *Jose Valdez | Jose Valdez Photography *Tam Ashworth | Isari Flower Studio *Dale Gottschalk | San Diego DJ and Video *Liz Diaz | The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe
I was really excited to photograph the Rancho Santa Fe wedding of some old friends of mine, Lara and Nelz. The lovely couple were married at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, a quaint venue in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe. In addition to close family and friends, Lara and Nelz were joined by their dog, Cassius, who donned a couture dog tuxedo. [Images photographed on Fuji 400H and Fuji Superia 800 film.]
Melissa and Brendan had their Crosby Club wedding this past Saturday in Rancho Santa Fe. You may remember this super-hip couple from our killer engagement shoot several months ago. Normally, black and white-themed weddings are pretty hard to pull off, but Melissa and Brendan knocked it out of the park. I just love their style and demeanor and was so honored to photograph their wedding. Special thanks to Jamie Renfro from Ever After Events for making sure everything ran smoothly. And, as always, a tip of the hat to my wonderful partner in crime, Lindsey Byrnes, for her fantastic photography of Brendan and her great second-shooting work.
Check out the lovely note Melissa and Brendan sent me!
