The place was PACKED! I kid you not! However, let me start from the beginning. I’ve known Damon for many, many, many years ( I won’t mention the exact year I met him, but take my word that I’ve known him for a long time). Anyway, a few years ago he moved up north and met this wonderful woman Dana. They fell in love and are engaged to be married sometime in 2015.
Which is very cool!
Recently they were both in San Diego attending a wedding and asked if I could shoot some photographs of them around the iconic Hotel Del Coronado…..on a Saturday…..during the peak wedding season….at one of the most well known hotels in the world.I had to think about that for a moment because two weeks prior to our session I was at the Del shooting a wedding and the place was packed with people attending at least four weddings (including the one I was shooting). I knew that our weekend would be no exception and – sure enough- I was right. HOWEVER! I was UP for the challenge! With the exception of a few images where I wanted the background to show people I worked hard to make it look like they had the entire place to themselves. I am fairly certain I succeeded. Here are some of my favs.
