001We had a beautiful afternoon with this gorgeous couple in the back roads of Jamul.  As we strolled down the Sweetwater River Bridge, Derek reminisced on his childhood memories driving down this bridge, which no longer has access to cars.  Then, we headed to Derek’s childhood home, where he and Cecily met for this first time at his sister’s wedding.  The session ended with a sweet ride in the car that Derek and Cecily drove on their first date.  So many sweet memories! How cool that these guys were able to create new ones that they can now look back on for years to come. Congrats Derek and Cecily!002003004005006007008009010011

0001Just like Katelyn and Andrew did for their engagement session at Lake Cuyamaca, they chose another picture perfect backdrop filled with natural beauty to celebrate their love on their wedding day.  The coastal scene in Del Mar reflected the beautiful love that was beaming from this gorgeous couple.  The ceremony and reception took place at the stunning L’Auberge Del Mar Spa and Resort.  Everything was gorgeous and Katelyn and Andrew were grounded and relaxed as they prepared to share their vows in front of their family and closest friends.  Below are some of our favorite moments from the day.0002Over the months before the wedding day, Andrew and his father built the gazebo that Katelyn and Andrew would be married under.  They assembled it the morning of the wedding, with the sun beaming down, and it will find it’s permanent home in Andrew and Katelyn’s back yard.  Amazing!00030004The shoes0005The gorgeous bride0006Bridesmaid bouquet0007That back… just beautiful.0008Katelyn’s bouquet0009Katelyn’s mother’s priceless reaction as her daughter and husband walk down the aisle.0010Pure joy.0011Andrew’s reaction to seeing his soon to be wife walk down the aisle to him.0012Married!0013Andrew and his Father sharing a moment after the ceremony.0014The rings0015The newlyweds0016The obligatory selfie with the wedding party0017So much joy and laughter on this day!0018Del Mar Train Station0019Katelyn glowing in black and white0020A kiss by the coaster0021Sunset under the gazebo0022The reception decor included just the perfect blend of organic and sparkly elements… and plenty of candle light.0023Father Daughter dance0024Katelyn’s mother and brother watching the Father Daughter dance.

I am in awe of the top photo with the couple running on the beach with Katelyn’s veil blowing in the wind. Just stunning!!

It does help that the bride (my best friend since 4) and groom are stunning themselves of course! My favorite is the train photo, the timing and the blurred image behind them is perfect. I also love the sunset pic under the pergola that Andrew and his dad built. Amazing job!!!! – MonicaJanuary 18, 2016 – 6:21 pm

0001Enjoy these images from Sara and Eric’s shoot at Belmont Park in Mission Beach.  These guys were up to have a good time!  In going on rides, playing games, riding their bikes, and watching the sunset, their love shown so bright!  The shoot was effortless fun, and if this is any indication of how their marriage will be, they’re in for a sweet ride!
