Wow! What a week it was with this amazing couple!
Karen and Ryan are both from the Washington D.C. area and so with only being in town during the week of their wedding, we were spoiled spending so much time with these two the past few days! We shot their engagement session in San Clemente on Wednesday and then shot their beautiful destination wedding on Saturday on the hill in Laguna Beach!
With their closest friends and family in attendance, they said their vows at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church and then sped their way down Pacific Coast Highway to San Juan Capistrano for some quality time at The Mission followed by a wonderful celebration at the Vintage Steakhouse right across the street.
From start to finish, their day was gorgeous. Being a photographer himself, Ryan gave us full creative control and really let us have fun telling the story of their day. Both he and Karen were so fun and relaxed, it was so much fun to step back and watch as they loved on each other. Ryan would say something softly to Karen, her face would light up, his face would light up, and their smiles could be seen from across the room. Hearing the toasts raised int their honor, it only confirmed what we could see even after only a few short hours with them.
Karen and Ryan, thank you for trusting us with your wedding day, we couldn’t be any happier for you both and are so excited for your new lives together out in DC – with a lot less traffic to see one another!
