Katie + Doug | Laguna Beach, CA

This Laguna wedding was a dream. A nice warm day called for a packed beach! This couple was such an easy going couple. They were barefoot as they walked down the aisle, and they met at a chiffon arch, that blew so delicately in the wind.

The first dance was so pure, and real. You could feel the emotions as they sang to each other the words. However, nothing tears me up like a father/daughter dance does. Watching them dance, and hold each other tightly as tears ran down their cheeks was hard for me, the photographer, to not shed a few tears as well. Its something in that moment, that you can feel such a joy, and such a heartbreak as the daughter is taking off into her new future.

Now beach pictures don't always come out as romantic when the beach sun is so strong and harsh, so we made sure to sneak out of the reception to make sure to get some amazing sunset photos!

Country music played the entire night, along with some from the soundtrack "Grease". It was so hard to not sing a long to every word along with the crowd. Everyone was dancing, only a few left in their seats.

This wedding is going down in the books for one of the funnest! I thank Katie + Doug for letting me be apart of it. I wish you both the very best in your future. You deserve it.
