Carly + Brant | Vista, Wedding | April 2014 | San Diego Wedding Photographer | Southern California Wedding Photographer |

I met Carly + Brant when I was doing my Christmas mini sessions last year, they were dating then! A few months later I got the message that they were engaged and wanted me to do their wedding.  I had not expected to do a wedding for a long time, but here I was 6 months after picking up my camera for the first time, doing my first wedding.  I am so thankful for those Christmas Mini Sessions.  It sounds so weird, but they led me to meeting the clients that hired me for my first birth session, first wedding, and everything else that has gotten me where I am now.  This wedding was amazing, and put together super quickly by Carly, Brant, and both of their families.  Almost every detail was put together by a member of their family.  Carly’s cousin did the flowers, Brant’s mom made the cake + cupcakes, Brant’s brother married them — they even got married in their parents backyard (their house is GORGEOUS).  It was so amazing to be a part of a day that was solely about family + the important things when it comes to a marriage.  A lot of people can get caught up in the details, but this was just a perfect backyard wedding.  Also just want to give a big shootout to Tara Yarte Photography  who second shot for me for this wedding and helped me out SO much.  I never would have been able to do it without her! Eek, well it’s amazing how much my work has already grown since this day back in April, but I know I will always look back at these pictures from my very first wedding and remember where it all started! With such amazing people 🙂
