La Jolla Engagement Photos | Charlyn & Mathew | San Diego Wedding Photographers

Charlyn and Mathew had their first date in La Jolla so there was no better place for their engagement photos than where they first fell in love.   If I had to pick just one word to describe this couple (which would be hard) it would probably have to be fun, followed by lighthearted and playful.  Charlyn and Matt are probably surprised I didn’t choose Laughter considering that’s what the four of us spent most of our time doing on their photo shoot.

Why choose fun? well they brought bubbles, and coffee mugs, smiles, great outfits, lots of excitement, their sense of adventure, and on appetite for great food when we were all done.  This engagement shoot was hands down a great time and this lucky couple ended the session with a truly beautiful sunset down at La Jolla shores.  La Jolla can be a fussy spot and you might not always get that perfect orange sun setting over the ocean but even on an overcast day this town is beautiful.

Thanks Charlyn and Matt for a spectacular shoot and a fun day!

Ackerhurst Dairy Barn | Omaha Nebraska | Wedding | Andrea & Trent

I would be lying if I said we weren’t really excited for this wedding.  When we first started talking to Andrea and Trent about their wedding they were still in the process of finding the right location.  Most of Andrea’s family are based in San Diego  but it was important to both Andrea and Trent that his Grandfather in Nebraska be able to attend their wedding.  A barn wedding was on the top of their list, so when the Ackerhurst Dairy Barn in Omaha popped onto their radar it just seemed ment to be.

The Ackerhurst Dairy Barn is a spectacular old red wooden barn located a few minutes out side of Omaha Nebraska.  It has been transformed into a lovely wedding venu with a clean bright white interior to contrast the beautiful red exterior.  Weddings can be held inside or out on the lawn infront of the barn.

Andrea DIY’d for months before the wedding getting all her beautiful decorations ready for the big day.  They used the interior of the barn for the reception and strung up gray and yellow pom poms along with twinkly white christmas lights.  The ceremony took place on the front of the property with the barn framing up a perfect background.  Andrea’s brother played music for everyone and then took her arm along with her father to walk her down the aisle.  The ceremony was beautiful, with readings from both Andrea and Trent’s mothers, followed by a sand ceremony and a touching speech about the significance of their rings.  With a kiss to seal the deal the couple was off to play on farm equipment with their wedding party for photos!

Everyone got on the dance floor including Grandpa, and when the tunes didn’t have everyone grooving they were grabbing props and jumping into the photo booth.  This wedding day was jam packed with fun all the way down to the sparkler send off.
