Its always fun shooting weddings when you already know the bride and groom – so this was a very special wedding. Not only are Casey and Cathy my neighbors – but I actually traveled to Santa Barbara last year to photograph the surprise proposal. This wedding took place at the Sheraton in Carlsbad with the portrait session happening nearby at the San Diego Botanical Gardens (aka Quail Botanical Gardens).
The day was long but super fun – and as a result of those 2 things (long day and fun time) I shattered my record for the most pictures I have ever taken at a wedding. In fact, while I was creating this blog post I was struggling to narrow down my list of favorite images to get below my top 200.
