Courtyard wedding at La Valencia Hotel, La Jolla – Laura & Eli

Now I don’t usually blog this many photos from weddings.  I shoot so many things I can’t even blog all of them and I certainly could never keep up if I did this every time. Of course every so often a wedding comes along that I just love and I go a little nuts with it.  This is one of those.

First, I loved Laura and Eli.  They are so quirky and don’t care that I show all their expressions (not just the pretty ones)  and as a photographer that is the best.  I love being able to show real personalities and that includes all the funny faces.  Second, I am swooning over the location…. the courtyard at La Valencia is just stunning at sunset when the string-lights are glowing and the sky is cobalt blue.

This was a destination wedding for the entire group.  Some of you may recall Laura & Eli’s engagement shoot we did in New York a while back.  And La Valencia was the perfect location for all the family and friends to converge and take over the intimate property.

Big thanks to the fabulous coordinator, Diane Kern.  She is a darling to work with and everything is always perfect!

Generally I’m not a big fan of jumping shots, but I gotta say I like this one.
