Melissa + Eddie....happy sighhhhhhh, what a good looking couple!!! They were married on July 31st. On top of enjoying the personality and beauty of Melissa + Eddie together, I adored the details, colors & vendors of this day!

Since Justin was away, busy producing his first feature film Ben Banks, I was graced by the presence of Erin from He And She Photography as my second shooter and Jen from Jen Lauren Grant Photography as my assistant. 

I absolutely LOVED the way Nicole DeAnne did Melissa's hair & make-up!

me_wed025.jpgme_wed026.jpgSweet & Saucy Shop provided the most amazing desserts!

me_wed032.jpgI could laugh ALL day long at this cake cutting/shoving series! The first photo with Eddie's expression while he "lovingly" shoves cake into his bride's face is priceless! Don't fret though, Melissa gets her shot right after! Soooo funny!

Justin and I had never shot in Monterey (Northern California) until Emily + Drew's wedding. So upon arrival, we were hit with and explosion of ideas and creativity. It's always great to shoot in new locations with fresh settings! I always tell my clients that if Justin and I could shoot in a new place every time we would be so happy!

Emily + Drew's wedding took place on July 17th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Cannery Row. Gorgeous venue, gorgeous couple, gorgeous day!
