Last month I had the pleasure of taking a fun little trip for Chris and Rachel’s gorgeous destination wedding that was tucked away in the golden, Californian hills at Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding just outside of San Luis Obispo. I flew into San Jose and took a road trip down with my friend and fellow photographer, David, who was actually the first person to help me get into the wedding business many years ago, so you could say, I was just slightly happy to make him my assistant for the day.
Although I had never met Rachel in person, we had chatted quite a few times and I felt like I had already known her for some time. She was actually a referral from a favorite, past wedding client so I was really looking forward to the big day. I absolutely loved working with Rachel and Chris, their family and friends. These two were up for whatever, had smiles all day and made no complaints about the fact that it was the hottest day of the year there. I also got to work with some amazing vendors, including Irma from Simply Shabby Chic Event’s who was so accommodating and just an overall pleasure to work with.
Congratulations Rachel & Chris!
