La Jolla Wedding Photographer

James + Ally

There’s always a first time for everything. This time, I got the chance to play the role of a La Jolla wedding photographer on a Christmas Eve. 

Both James and Ally got ready at the Darlington House. It’s an amazing wedding venue, and the forecasted high winds and rain could never wreck that fact. The couple remained in high spirits despite the weather prediction. With both of them being residents of Washington, what’s a little rain?

Right after they got ready, James and Ally went straight to some first look photos. You can definitely see the connection between these two. There was no denying it – they can’t wait to be bonded for eternity. We went around the property, taking more pictures as we go. This reminded me why I’ve always loved taking first looks. They portrayed how perfectly in love two people were. 

There was no rain the entire time we took photos outdoors. However, the winds and strong rains came right in the middle of the wedding. The ceremony had to be stopped so that everyone can move into the tent. 

But even that wasn’t going to ruin the couple’s mood. They remained bright and positive, it was highly contagious. Their disposition is an absolute dream for a La Jolla wedding photographer like me.

After the ceremony, the couple accepted my offer for a quick drive to the beach. Here, we took breathtaking shots that made the drive worth it. It was extremely cold and windy. But the couple was never fazed. The portraits I took showed how much they adored each other. They really showed that they’ll stand together no matter how bad the weather could become.

We went back and joined the entire party for dinner and some toasts. After that, the party went on full swing. I stood by and savored every shot I took of everybody dancing. It showed me why being a La Jolla wedding photographer is always an amazing experience. I see the love, the laughter and the friendship. From all this, I knew everybody will remember this day all the days of their lives.
