A few mentions…

Melissa and Ryan’s engagement session was mentioned on Snippet and Ink last week (see the link for “orange VW bug”), and also was in the sidebar over at Green Wedding Shoes for a few days. Both are rad wedding blogs.

Christina and Ben’s Wedding, Hyatt Mission Bay, San Diego CA

I hadn’t met Christina and Ben before their wedding day – Ben’s military schedule kept us from being able to meet up for an engagement session. However, I could tell from speaking to them on the phone that they were a pretty special couple who would be such a pleasure to meet and take photos of.

I was right.

They’re about the kindest people ever – it was so fun to see how excited Christina was to see and marry Ben, and vice versa. I walked away from their wedding at the end of the night thinking, “I’m glad two people like that found each other.”

Stephanie and Daniel's Wedding, Arroyo Grande CA

One weekend in September, I had a client very unfortunately have to cancel/reschedule their wedding. As God would have it, Daniel (whose family is close to ours and has blessed us very much over the past few years) was getting married to Stephanie on that day. I had no plans all of a sudden, so I got to attend this wedding as their photographer, and hang out with some of my best friends for the day. It was a lot of fun and it was great to see Daniel and Stephanie get married – here are some of their photos.

90% of these peoples are friends of mine that I hang out with all the time. That’s awesome. 🙂
