Romantic Intimate Sunrise Griffith Observatory Shoot

"The Griffith Observatory served as the backdrop for our romantic styled shoot which, if I’m being honest, was a little intimidating. I wondered how this place would come across in wedding images. I knew I’d have to get creative because it’s not your typical wedding scene, but I was excited for the challenge. Our model, Keri, donned an Emma Gown by Theia Couture from The Dress Theory San Diego, and had to constantly explain to spectators that she wasn’t, indeed, famous. She was positively luminous in the soft light that comes with the sunrise, and the tender blush wading on the horizon complimented her perfectly. We really wanted to capture the essence of your not-so-typical bride, so we hunted each angle to get a different kind of shot. What resulted was a session unlike any other, and a really raw view of the type of bride who breaks tradition by opting for the romantic intimacy that a sunrise brings." -Liana McCain Photography

Romantic Black and White Mediterranean-Inspired Wedding from Eyelet Images

"Leiana and Adam chose to get married at the Omni La Costa Resort in San Diego for two reasons. First, the venue made them feel as if they were somewhere distant, near the Mediterranean (a destination wedding in their own backyard!) Also, the clean white buildings and Spanish architecture perfectly fit their vision for a simple and romantic setting that hinted at the couple's heritage. Adam and Leiana are as in love as any two people can be, and there were not many who could hold back tears of joy during their celebration! This wedding was an absolute dream to photograph!" -Lindsey of Eyelet Images
