Monarch Beach Resort Wedding

The wedding of Courtney and Jacob at the Monarch Beach ( formerly St. Regis) Resort.

This was the final shot of the night, which ended up being my favorite of the entire event. I love nostalgia, and this one feels like a 50’s early 60’s photograph. A fun filled moment for the couple, well into their wedding reception.

This is my second favorite photograph of the day. Negative space in a photograph is such a positive! It give your eye room to breath and I love how the focus on the bride laughing, a “shot between the shot”

First Shot of the day, before the sun came up 6:30 a.m., on our way to trash the dress. More like a celebrate the dress. Put it back on and not worry about getting it sandy, wet, and be free to move on the beach, get your toes sandy, and maybe dip them in the water.
