Maui Wedding, Olowalu Plantation House – {Brian + Melissa}

Maui Olowalu Wedding 01 I rarely get to meet my clients prior with destination weddings but Melissa + Brian made a special trip to San Diego for their engagement photos! It was fun already knowing their fun personalities at the wedding! It was pouring rain every day surrounding their wedding but the actual day was perfection. You can’t miss Brian’s strut down the aisle either – that was one excited groom! I also love how included Brian’s 3 kids were in the day!

St Lucia Wedding Day 1- Coconut Bay Resort – {Brad + Huong}

In January, Jason and I had the pleasure to photograph the destination wedding of Brad + H. I had met these two at their engagement session in San Diego and was really looking forward to spending time with them in Paradise. Turns out, they had a ton of amazing friends and family members that we got to know as well! The days leading up to the wedding, they had activities for everyone to participate in. A welcome BBQ, a sunset cruise and the resort even had them plant their own tree! It was a blast capturing all these moments before the wedding day.

I’ll be sharing the wedding day later this week! 🙂St Lucia Wedding 01 St Lucia Wedding 02 St Lucia Wedding 03 St Lucia Wedding 04 St Lucia Wedding 05 St Lucia Wedding 06 St Lucia Wedding 07 St Lucia Wedding 08 St Lucia Wedding 09 St Lucia Wedding 10 St Lucia Wedding 11 St Lucia Wedding 12

Chicago Winter New Years Eve Wedding – {Rob + Aurora}

New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 01This wedding was quite different for me! I’m used to warm climates and shooting outdoors – the polar vortex didn’t allow either so we had to get creative! Luckily Rob + Aurora are total troopers and had no problem with me dragging them outside twice for portraits! This was my very first New Years Eve wedding and it was so fun to watch the balloon drop at midnight!  New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 02 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 03 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 04 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 05 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 06 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 07 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 08 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 09 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 10 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 11 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 12 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 13 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 14 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 15 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 16 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 17 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 18 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 19 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 20 New Years Even Chicago snow wedding 21
