Brian and Melissa’s Wedding – Coronado Cays Yacht Club – San Diego, CA

We’re slacking on our new blog! So much to do and so little time… We’re getting serious now though. So here goes our first wedding post.

Bethany and I were so stoked when Melissa asked us to shoot her wedding! The Berghs (Melissa’s family) are super longtime family friends of ours, we go way back… 🙂 We always love shooting weddings of close family and friends. When we’re running around all day and night shooting everything people always say “put down that camera! stop working and enjoy yourselves now!” but honestly we love shooting more than anything, so I don’t think putting down the camera to enjoy ourselves is going to happen anytime soon.

Their wedding was at the beautiful Coronado Cays Yacht Club on Coronado Island, San Diego. Melissa and Brian were obviously beyond excited (just look at the photos of them two!) to tie the knot, after like 5 years of dating! About time guys… 😉

Here are some of our favorites from the day!

Mark & Melissa

I love this shot. I can only imagine what Mark is sharing (or commanding!?) with Brian as he gives away his daughter.  Melissa doesn’t have a care in the world…
Brian is pretty stoked…
Gorgeous setting on the San Diego Bay-
The kiss!
Leaving the ceremony-
Melissa’s friends wanted in on the action too!
A few portraits-
Mark toasting to the best mans hilarious speech-
Cake cutting-
Sparklers are always a fun exit!
As I was editing through the photos from this wedding I came across these and was thinking… man… either I was totally hammered and don’t remember a thing about taking these photos… or maybe Bethany was trying to be extra artsy… who knows… then it all came back to me! While I was grabbing a bite to eat MY MOM grabbed my camera and *tried* to be a wedding photographer for a few minutes. YIKES. So from these painfully ugly images we learn something very important… Who cares how great the camera is… hire a great photographer who knows a thing about how to use it!    🙂

Congrats Brian and Melissa!!! I hope your THAILAND honeymoon was incredible!
