I cannot tell you how excited we were to book a New Orleans wedding, we have found ourselves making trips out to New Orleans for conferences, photographer meet-ups, & for the voodoo festival one year but never for a wedding… yet. Our love for New Orleans only grew after all these trips. From the first e-mail Deirdre sent us we knew we were a perfect fit for her, even aside from the fact that she was getting married in one of the coolest cities in America. Deirdre & Beau live in Washington DC and brought their friends & family down for a destination wedding because they share the same love for this unique city. They also share a love for travel and adventure. They were married at Race & Religious, a unique historic venue that was once a home in central New Orleans. With grits, a jazz band, & a second line to finish up the band set. The party didn’t end with the band though and they continued the party well after the band left and as most of our clients figure out, we love a good party.

Jaclyn & Justin are one of the many awesome couples we have been lucky enough to meet through Melissa & Dave. They started the wedding day at the modern hotel Casa 425 where the had their first look and took photos with their adorable son Noah. The rest of the wedding day took place at Justin’s parents home in the mountains of Clairemont, California. They had a Jewish ceremony complete with the signing of the Ketubah and breaking of the glass. The day could not have been more beautiful for an outdoor reception. While California nights can be a bit cooler everyone managed to stay warm with plenty of dancing. This group knows how to party right. We joined the group for the after party in which we managed to devour many pizzas.

We first met Jenna & Chris on Halloween night at Mel & Dave’s wedding in Puerto Rico. Jenna was dressed as a 1920’s flapper and Chris pulled off a very convincing  Will Ferrell in the move Elf! It was such fun wedding and led Ben & Eric all the way to San Clemente, California for Jenna & Chris’s wedding at Casa Romantica. Such a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony set looking over the Pacific Ocean. Such a magical night, the sunset was perfectly timed for portraits and the first dances were just in time to catch the evening twilight. As the light faded everyone enjoyed a wonderful dinner set under the stars. They danced the night away in the breezeway looking over the ocean and stars.

It’s amazing that through people we have met over the years, via business, school, & friends we are able to meet people of all cultures, careers, & places. Weynab & Colin are some of those people we were lucky enough to photograph based on a referral from a former classmate Ben had at Texas state 7 years ago (who also happened to be living in San Francisco). Weynab & Colin had their ceremony at the Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church and the reception at the Bridge’s Golf Club in San Ramon. After photographing portraits on the beautiful grounds, exploring via golf cart, they had an action packed reception with tearful speeches, packed dancefloor, & spiced with a few Ethiopian traditions.
