I’ve know Brigitte for quite some time now. I’ve had a couple of photoshoots with her, including a fun pin-up photoshoot. I also photographed her sister’s wedding. Earlier this year we also had a really fun engagement session where I placed Brigitte and Brandon in a patch of beautiful yellow poppies! I was really looking forward to photographing her wedding at the beach in Monterey in July. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a proper beach side wedding and this was going to be a great one! The weather was perfect that day. We couldn’t have asked for better.
That morning I arrived early at the Best Western Beach Resort in Monterey with my two assistants, Suzy and Sarah.
We checked out the scene and discovered where Brigitte was getting ready. Brandon and the guys were getting ready too. We also got to see Isabella and Carter (her sister’s twin babies… so cute!)
Suzy spotted the ocean reflecting off the window and suggested we use it. We had Brandon look in the window at Brigitte and got this image. I’m lucky to have such a talented intern!
As the guests began to gather on the beach it was time for the ceremony to begin.
Then it was on to the reception! Tanya gave a wonderful speech followed by Brigitte and Brandon’s first dance.
This wedding was Suzy’s first time assisting me at a full wedding and she was hooked!
Although the scene below may not have been the last shot of the evening, it’s the perfect way to end this blog entry! Congratulations Brandon and Bridgette!
