Back from a massive blogging hiatus with one of my favorite weddings of the year!
Back when I was in the San Diego nightlife industry, I met a photographer by the name of Arlene. Arlene reached out to connect me with Kim & Julian since she was attending the wedding as a guest and couldn't do both! We scheduled an engagement session, and 15 minutes in, I knew I’d get along with them perfectly. They were laid back, hilarious, and just rad people to photograph - be sure to check the first five images of their San Diego engagement session at the top of the post (since I never got around to blogging their session).
Fast forward to their wedding day - I show up ultra early to start photographing details. Since Kim was getting ready at a separate location, I started shooting the grounds, and 20 minutes in, realized Kim was supposed to be there already. I shot her a text and she assured me she would be there shortly. Forty-five minutes later, Kim shows up with her crew, champagne starts pouring, and it gets a lot more interesting!
A bit later - Julian goes outside to a secluded portion of the garden and we get him setup for a First Touch. Instead of doing a first-look, they opted for a first touch and a few words prior, which ended up being pretty rad to photograph!
