Even though it was only a two-hour affair, Brian and Sarah’s Lover’s Point wedding will always be memorable for me: It was the first time I’ve ever shot a wedding on a Monday.
Also, it was such a sweet event. Everybody was family. The big group photo I shot after the ceremony included everyone who was in attendance.
Before the wedding, Brian told me that Sarah really loves the ocean — That’s why they chose to get married at beautiful Lover’s Point in Pacific Grove, California.
Although it was a foggy day, the ocean still looked beautiful. And so did the couple, as they got married under cypress trees just a few yards away from the rocky shoreline.
I arrived early to scope out spots for portraits. After the ceremony, I recruited Brian’s brother to hold lighting and keep he couple smiling — a task he excelled at. By the end of the 20-minute portrait shoot, he and I were a well-oiled photographic machine. High fives were exchanged all around.
A couple days after the wedding, Brian emailed me a compliment that I loved to hear. He said “it was like working with a friend.”
That’s what I aim for at all my weddings.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos.
