The Hotel Del Coronado Wedding for Johanna & Drew

The hashtag for this wedding was #JohannaSaysIDrew how cute is that? I remember sitting across from Johanna and Drew during our first interview. They sat close together and always seemed to be holding hands or toughing shoulders. Their energy was so awesome and I couldn’t help but smile and imagine what the wedding day would be like. I had my fingers crossed that they thought I was a good fit - because they had me at hello. They both love photography and wanted to create something really special for their guests. Their was such a genuineness from our first conversation. This wedding has all the feels. It felt so good to be a part of it. Johanna hugged me in the getting ready room and I just knew it was going to be an epic day.

On top of all of that I got to collaborate with so many of my favorite people. Double yay. Cara from Luxe out did herself. She transformed the Hotel Del into this beautiful garden that echoed the charm that Johanna and Drew have.

5 Somethings // Adventures & Secret Dinners

Something Lovely :: My mom and I spent the day at the park with Gaidin.  We went to Cardiff and met up with my dear friends Paul and Diana and their sweet son.  They spend much of their year traveling around the U.S. and Mexico, living out of their van and having amazing adventures.  I've known Paul since I was a kid and it's amazing to see him so happy and free.  I'd love to take a long epic road trip some day with Mike. 

Something Dreamy :: Iceland in June! I just found out that Jenna is going on a writing retreat in Iceland in April. How exciting! I'm so happy to be sharing a similar experience with her.

Something Captured :: Today, Mike and I are shooting a behind-the-scenes shoot for a friend of ours that organizes secret dinners.  Whiskey foxtrot tango, how cool is that?

Something New :: This week I'm starting the Shewanders rebranding process with Courtney of Brightly Designed.  I'm excited to share our new vision over the next few months and collaborate with such an incredible artist.

Something Challenging :: Allergies...I really thought I had gotten rid of them. San Diego, you beautiful sunny mess, what is going on?
