Abby & Andrew’s wedding couldn’t have been any better! Perfect weather, sunny beaches, great friends and family, a gorgeous temple, and lots of love! We started out with a sweet “first look” and formals on the temple grounds, followed by a quick stop at Windansea Beach in La Jolla to wrap up our session. The reception was absolutely gorgeous and took place in Abby’s beautifully manicured back yard; a romantic scene, with fruit trees and flowers. Their first dance took place under the avocado tree, and as they left for the night, a long trail of friends and sparklers lit up the front yard. Andrew has been one of my favorite grooms ever! My brides almost always comment on how much fun they are having during a session, but Andrew mentioned more than once what a great time he was having and had such a grateful attitude. I just love that about him! Enjoy!
We returned to the scene of Patrick’s proposal to Katie, and shot their formal session over the course of two different days. My sweet friend, Faye Crowther, of Faye Crowther Photography, was kind enough to come along as a second shooter, and then graciously warmed us up with hot chocolate and treats at her amazing cabin overlooking the lake.
The weather was absolutely beautiful, and on the second evening at sunset, a thick fog rolled in over the river, and created a moody backdrop for our final images. I’m so excited for this couple’s Idaho wedding in March. They have been one of my favorite couple’s ever! Not every bride would be willing to trudge through snow up to their knees in a wedding dress, in 14 degree weather, with no coat on, but Katie didn’t frown once, and thanks to Patrick and Katie’s good sense of adventure, we ended up with some beautiful formals!
