Through the magic of life and happy circumstance, I had the good fortune of photographing Lauren and Ryan's love story from the West Coast to the East Coast.
In fact, the first time I met Lauren and Ryan was the day that they got engaged. I'd only exchanged a handful of emails with Ryan, planning the perfect location for his surprise proposal to Lauren at Scripps Pier - him stressing out about the how/when/where and me putting on my best stalker hat (we photographers wear many unexpected hats). If you haven't seen the post, definitely check out the moments we captured:
A Scripps Pier Proposal |Lauren + Ryan|
What started as a wonderful testament to their first step in their married life together, turned into something extra special for me when they asked em to photograph their wedding outside of Philadelphia the following year. So a little over a year later, I was flying across the country to document their wedding. They put on a fabulous affair, with a ceremony at the Corinthians Yacht Club and unbelievable reception at The Waterfall, bringing touches of beachy San Diego throughout the day. Even with all the glitz and glam, the best thing was the celebration of their family and friends (and vice versa) - especially, the many subtle ways Lauren's brother became a part of their day. Even in his absence, he continued to be present.
Many thanks to all the vendors that helped make the day a success, with a special thanks to Engineered Events and Silver Sound.
Stay tuned for their day after session st Cape Henlopen State Park - from one beach to another!
