LAURA & RACHEL
FIND IT FAST
A car pulled over just across from where Rachel and I were standing. The passenger door slowly opened and all we could see was a long sequin gown and Louboutin heels. The driver wearing a custom tailored suit, held his hand out and helped her from the car. You know that moment where you shouldn’t stare, but you can’t help yourself? That was us. This gorgeous woman turned slightly looking over her should, and graciously waved in our direction. Our hearts skipped a beat with excitement, we knew immediately we were about to capture a dream engagement session.
That just set the bar for what we could only image their country club wedding would be like. We walked into the bridal suite of Monterey Plaza Hotel, where Jeannette and her bridesmaids were getting hair an makeup ready. After we exchanged hugs and sequels of excitement, and Jeannette pointed towards the table she had laid out all her details. Not only that, she had the florist bring us an extra box of flowers, greenery, and petals for details. Rachel nearly cried. That Chanel shot she captured with the rose petals, perfection!
After a dream morning, and I Do’s sealed with a kiss, we were chauffeured around the country club for an amazing portrait session! There’s nothing more incredible that shooting a gorgeous couple at a stunning Monterey wedding venue! Congratulations Jeannette and John! It was our absolutely honor to capture your wedding day. Here’s a seek peak at a few of our favorites!
