From the Photographer… “The Crossings in Carlsbad, California is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. As one of their preferred photographers at the venue, I get to do their bridal showcase every year. I had the pleasure to meet Shana and Devon at one of The Crossing's bridal events. We set up a convenient time for them to come down from Orange County to my studio in Old Town San Diego and our meeting could not have gone any better. Shana and Devon are such sweet and personable people and we hit it off really well. In fact, at the end of our consultation, they were going to get dinner at one of the many restaurants in the Old Town area. They suddenly reappeared a few minutes later and said that they wanted to book. Cut to their incredible engagement shoot in Laguna Beach, where we had a great time wandering around one of the most iconic Southern California beach towns there is. We finished with some great sunset pictures on the stunning beach in Laguna.?Their wedding day was a beautiful sunny afternoon in Carlsbad. We started with some awesome photos of the guys getting ready, and then popped over to Shana's room for some prep pics of girls. Shana and Devon wanted to do a first look, and we were able to capture some incredible heartfelt moments. A first look is a great option for the bride and groom if they want to take the time to get cool photos on their wedding day. After the first look, we were able to get all of the family and bridal party photos taken care of because they gave us a cocktail hour to concentrate on getting great imagery of Shana and Devon. After a beautiful ceremony overlooking the lovely Pacific Ocean, Shana, Devon and I made our way to the Crossing's gorgeous waterfall. After some awesome photos there, we headed to the party. They had a great choreographed first dance, and then the food, drink, and celebration ensued. We finished the night with a few gorgeous backlit photos and said goodbyes with big hugs. Shana and Devon rule!”
