Ashley & Scott's Wedding in Dana Point

There was a special place in Ashley's heart for the St. Regis Resort in Monarch Bay. It's where Scott surprised her by proposing to marry him. It's the same spot where Ashley would prepare for her special day. It's where they'll meet for the first time on their wedding. It's also one of my favorite places to shoot because of it's grandeur and gorgeous architecture.

The plan was to photograph their "first meeting" at the St. Regis but Ashley didn't know exactly how it was going to happen.

She thought we were still shooting her solo pictures when Scott snuck up on her from behind! She had the biggest shocked/smile on her face!

Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the scenic Chart House Restaurant overlooking Dana Point Harbor where we were blessed with fair weather and clear blue skies.

Second Shooter: My friend David Baxter came all the way from SD - thanks bro, you're always awesome to shoot with!

I couldn't agree more with Chung, this is a great collection! I don't remember how I found your blog but it truly is one of my favourites and you are a very talented photographer and source of inspiration!

Looking though your work I don’t think I have seen not one I don’t love. You seem so passionate and make every shot unique. I am from England and I am only 16. Right now I am doing photography for a GSCE. I would like to say thank you for giving me my inspiration back. If I grow up to be as half as good as you I would be truly happy.
